Theft of Swords (Riyria Revelations) [Kindle Edition]

I had my reservations about buying this book, but the raving reviews by readers overcame my hesitancy to try a new author.

I was not disappointed. In fact, I went and bought the second book in the series immediately upon finishing this book. It is an excellent read with a lot of witty and funny dialog. Sarcastic humor is the norm and the author worked hard to develop his characters and bring them to life for the reader.

All the books in this series were completed prior to publishing - making it possible for the author to weave the smallest plot details into the earlier episodes for revelation and discovery later on. The excellence of this book cannot be overstated.

Most absolutely highly recommended for all age groups, but especially to the teenage and young adult age groups, where the seemingly uncomplicated storyline should appeal. But don't let the appearance of the lack of complexity fool you into thinking this book is only for the younger crowds, because it isn't. The attention to detail and well written prose make it a pleasure to read for all age groups.
