Publisher's Summary

For 10 years, I’ve been using a magical sword that I won in battle to ruthlessly slay enemies, break evil artifacts, and open stubborn pickle jars, but I don’t know much about it. 

That’s about to change. 

Thanks to the fact that I’m dating a powerful dragon, I can get a ride to the dwarven home world, and we’re going to research the sword's roots. Not that I care much about its history, mind you, but several allies and enemies have suggested it can do a lot more than whack things. Considering the magical bad guys I fight are always stronger, faster, and more powerful than I am, I need every advantage I can get. 

There’s just one problem: A half-dwarf thief has shown up and says she’s the rightful heir to the sword. 

I want to believe it’s a scam and can’t possibly be true, but I didn’t get the sword in the most legitimate manner. If I have to give it up, I might not be able to do my job anymore, and just as bad, I’ll be a target for all the bad guys who have been waiting for an opportunity to take me down.

Kept me enthralled, gasping and smiling.

I enjoyed this entire series. What with Covid and everything happening in the world today sometimes you just want to get away. This is a very good place to get away to. It was deep enough that I could stay there and light enough that it didn't make me think. Sometimes you don't want to think, you just want to be entertained. I was entertained. I got to leave earth occasionally for a while. Thank you.

Love the Character Interactions

I love how creative Lindsay Buroker’s characters are with their thoughts and dialogue. Her description of the different worlds is unique and creative. I truly look forward to hearing (audiobook) Secrets of the Sword 3, her next book and unfortunately her last in the series.

Fast paced multi faceted story!

I get a kick out of Val and Zav's relationship.
Val sacastic humor slups right under Zav's arrogance and he loves it!
A lot of events occur during this book on several levels.
Leheny does a super job with her narration!

Amazing

I have been binge-listening to this series. I had to buy this one bc Overdrive doesn't have it available. Totally worth it. I intend to buy them all.
Lindsey's stories are amazing and different and I love how they build upon each book, recalling past details, etc. I can listen to Vivienne all day long. She well and truly brings each character alive. An excellent narrator is so important. Between Lindsay's storytelling and Vivienne's voice artistry - I love these books.

It Keeps Getting Better!!

I haven't listened to a series like this in a long time. I can't get enough of Val and her Dragon, lol. The snark, wit, charm, and character development is top notch!! You will not be disappointed with your choice!!

Must read review

I'm not one to write reviews but felt I want to with with this author. the characters are well written and add to the whole story every single character is well written you won't be able to pick a favorite. every series by buroker starts a bit meheee then takes off like a rocket you won't want to stop listening/reading however I highly recommend listening Leheny is a very big part that makes this series so good so listen to it. by far this is my favorite snarky characters with action some suspense a dash of romance humor I'm telling you you can't go wrong with Buroker/Leheny but you do have to listen to the series of books in order and I promise you won't be sorry. I'm so so hopeful this is NOT the last book in this series these characters are gold for an author like I said I LOVED EVERY CHARACTER what a extremely fun series.

I love Lindsay

Great story. Great add characters. I was expecting to be part of a “different “ wedding. Instead I was very disappointed. I am sorry my love but there was so much more I was expecting to read and learn about our beloved Val and Chopper. Maybe my needs will be a part of 8.5 or 9. Kinda disappointed Lindsay. The performance was fantastic

Outstanding

Lindsay you have truly outdone yourself with this series. I have followed your writings for a while. I am pretty sure I have listened to or have read most of your published works.

I am thoroughly enjoying DBD. Zav and Vals relationship is the cutest and I am to enthralled by the narrative.

Keep up the good work. Stay Safe.

If only I could roll my eyes too.

I’m so pleased they kept the same narrator for this episode. The dialogue remains engaging and humerus and you might find yourself screaming at the characters at times, but it’s worth it. The dryness of certain individuals adds flavour and value. A really great read. 10/10. What’s next?

Can't wait for Book 9

I'm not gonna lie and say this was the best book in the series, it wasn't. It was however still an exceptional addition to an already really fun series. It has some really good laugh of out loud moments, as well as some heartfelt ones. The blurb mentioned thief fell a bit flat for me personally, but it didn't detract that much from the story. All in all a solid entry to the series.

Brilliant!

I love Lindsay Buroker's writing and the relationships she forges between her characters. Also Vivienne Leheny's narration is, as always, spot on.

Best narration

Still no real clue about the secrets of the sword 🤣
Maybe in the final book we will find out it’s true potential.
Looking forward to seeing how vals Mum goes seeing her dad again.
Next book I’ve been told is the last ……. Let’s see how it goes. I really really enjoyed this series. Zav and sandaris characters sense of humour I really do love as well as the goblins 🤣🤣

I do see on goodreads tho that there’s a book 10 possibly in the near future? …….. ahhhhh

Great audio love this narrator
