Filled with confidence and no small measure of arrogance, young Lee Starfinder, along with Millet Gristall, set off on their very first adventure. Lee quickly discovers that life beyond Hazrah can be far deadlier than he could have ever imagined. And soon he must learn that muscle and steel cannot replace loyalty, bravery and friendship.

The well done narration couldn't quite save this cliched fantasy adventure. While I understand you have to give some background of the characters and setting, having the first 8.5 minutes contain static description and exposition is way too much for a short story like this. It takes a while to really be told what's going on by the author and the dialogue is nothing special although the ending is not bad.

Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

Vast tale of two secretive theives who get caught up in the net of religion and politics. They lead with their wits, skills, and hearts into a set of events that will change the course of their world.

Narrator was fantastic and made bearable a debut script full of long sections of exposition (tell instead of show) and modern phrases in a fantasy world that didn't fit. That being said, the plot was pretty good, the characters are enjoyable and having read a couple of the author's short stories, and seeing the fan appetite for his subsequent works, he does get better. The conclusion of Theft of Swords will definitely convince me to continue reading (listening).
