Publisher's summary

Dive in to the fantasy saga where a motley group of heroes must recover a stolen relic.

Twins Belwynn and Soren can communicate telepathically. They must lead a team of mercenaries, priests and exiles on a mission that becomes far darker and more important than they had bargained for. Perfect for fans of multi-character epics like Lord of the Rings and A Game of Thrones.

Praise for this series:

“If you’re a fan of great characters and plenty of action set in a well-developed fantasy world, then this is your series.”

“With interesting, well-fleshed out characters and a genuinely enthralling plot, this one really stood out for me.”

“Usually the author's writing links out a little for the next book or two, but not this guy, it stays right up there. You really need to get the rest of this series, you deserve it.”

Comprising books 1-3 of The Weapon Takers saga, this box set follows an epic quest for the seven weapons of Madria.

Soren, an ambitious wizard

Belwynn, his twin sister, who shares a telepathic link with him

Rabigar, an exile of the Krykker race

Elana, a mysterious priestess

Moneva, a killer with a dark past

And a host of mercenaries, sorcerers, knights, dukes, kings, and strange new races.

Who will lay claim to the weapons? Who can be trusted? And as war comes to Dalriya, who will take a stand against the dark forces that have been unleashed on the land?

Listeners have compared this series to The Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, The Belgariad, and A Game of Thrones.

“This quest to retrieve a stolen religious relic ticked so many of the boxes that got me into fantasy in the first place: an epic quest, a cast of diverse characters, swords and sorcery, otherworldly landscapes, strange creatures. Couple all this with a world which has a detailed history replete with political rifts, feuds and machinations, there is a lot going on. I especially liked the mix of characters, each bring their own skills and personalities to the party.” (CF Welburn, author of The Ashen Levels)

Can’t handle the mouth noises

The story was ok but the voice actor’s slurping and squelching their spit while voicing the bad guy was horrendous. Got way worse in book 2 and couldn’t even finish it or the series

enjoyable story but it....

took me a long time to feel invested in the characters. female voicing leaves a lot to be desired, often flat and emotionless. male voicing often leaves too little to the imagination. good to listen to once... but I wouldn't give it a second run.

Great story. Good Narrators

Loved the storylines and characters as their backgrounds played roles in the intertwining paths of the events. The narrators were able to voice different accents which helped build the world view of characters you meet from different lands. Unfortunately, both the male and female actors did not alter the inflection, tambor, or tone that well when presenting dialogue, making it hard to identify who was talking. A final irritant for me was the voices did not change whether the character was speaking or shouting. I recognize this may be a stylistic choice but it made it harder to relate emotionally to some of the characters when the words being said have no indication that the character is struggling for their life. Overall, I would still recommend this series as the writing was wonderful and world-building enticing. I look forward to the final book.

Excellent book

This was a very engaging story. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. The only problem i Had was remembering the names of the many characters. All in all I recommend this book.

Delightfully enchanting story

This was a surprisingly captivating story. When I read another reviewer indicating this story was similar to Lord of the Rings I couldn’t help but snicker to myself. Yet, as I began listening to this story I began to become invested. Invested in the characters, some I loved, some I hated, and some I can’t wait to know what happens with. It does take some time to become accustomed to who is who, where everyone is, and following the stories of where each character is and their agenda. It truly is like Lord of the Rings in how; the characters diverge and they take independent adventures, but it’s a truly intriguing story. This is the first 3 books and my understanding is that one remains. But a stellar deal for over 30 hours of exceptional story telling. The narrators are good. I preferred the male narrator, though both were decent. I did see that there were complaints about the male narrator with a somewhat wet, breathy/mouthy type of narration but the whole point is the character he was narrator was inhabiting a decomposing body and is describe in writing exactly how the narrator depicts. I found the narrators didn’t hinder the story at all and complimented it in most circumstances.

Definitely worth the credit!

Before you read further, please be aware that there's a book 4. This is an excellent series involving a huge cast of characters, a wide variety of "new" races, and plenty of plots and intrigue. It's a bit on the darker side of fantasy and a couple of brutal scenes in book 1 were reminiscent of Abercrombie. That said, at least one of those horrible events helped one character advance the plot and wasn't completely gratuitous. That scene in particular is mercifully short. The world-building is very nicely done, and the main characters display more than one dimension. There are loads of political intrigue as well, however the books don't get bogged down with them and the author throws a LOT of fight scenes in the mix. Like many others, it took a while to get used to the 2-narrator format, however both of them were very good. Greg Patmore in particular has an amazing arsenal of voices. I flew through this collection in 2 weeks and I started book 4 already. Don't wait like I did!

A well done presentation of a well crafted story.

Jamie Edmunson tells a very big tale, and Bridget Thomas and Greg Patmore breathe life into its telling. Good Stuff!
