Response to Anoymous's Question....

Hey Anoymouus...not sure why you gave the book a one star review without reading it but...as to your questions.


Can someone tell me what order these books go in?
Theft of Swords (books 1 & 2)
Rise of Empire (books 3 & 4)
Heir of Novron (books 5 & 6)

This is ...

This is in the description as well.


Also, is there any bad stuff like cursing, impurity or immorality? Thank you in advance!

The book is free of foul language. It is about people who steal for a living so I guess you could say they are immoral. But I wouldn't classify them as such. It is remarkably "clean" (no swearing, sexual scenes or graphic violence) and although written for adults can be enjoyed by people of a younger age.

Sword & Sorcery Fun

If you're looking for a fun light fantasy series, if you're a fan of the sword and sorcery pulp era, or if you grew up reading the serial books of Dragonlance or Forgotten Realms give this book a shot. Fun characters. Good banter. By no means perfect but perfectly enjoy...

    A good read, with more to come

    Somewhere this is categorized as 'epic fantasy'. I wouldn't necessarily put it along side Tolkien or C. S. Lewis, but it is a good teen through adult fantasy read. Set in a lightly constructed imaginary medieval world, it is a story of a couple of heroes caught on the edge of recovering a lost empire or possibly plunging into a feudal world of wars, oppression, and deception. Wait.....those are the same thing! The heroes make their living as high end thieves and have plenty of mystery about who they really are. It manages to have travel and adventure without becoming a slave to a geography the reader really doesn't care about.

    This is a repackaging of the first two books of a 2009(?) six book series. There are two more combined books to complete the original series, but this combination of the first two stands alone with only a few minor questions that don't qualify as cliff hangers.

    Imaginative, almost unbelievable, yet possible, and fun to read

    This is a science-fiction novel with a little bit of everything. It moves through the questionable, rougher side of town to the eloquent environs of the rich and royal. The story follows two mysterious men who act as thieves for hire but, who seem to be much more than first perceived. Read it and you'll enjoy it!

    I ran across this book somewhere, maybe as a daily deal from B&a

    I ran across this book somewhere, maybe as a daily deal from B&N, I'm not sure. I enjoy good fantasy, so I decided to read it even though I'd never heard of the author. It's an excellent read. As others here have said, the characters are well fleshed out and are people I enjoy spending time with. The story progresses logically and there are no loose ends at the end of the novel. The two main characters are two thieves who do jobs for the wealthy nobles of their world. They take a job on short notice to steal a sword from the palace of the king and things get interesting after that. About half way through this book, I acquired the 2nd and 3rd books in the trilogy because I decided I wanted to read the entire series. A good adventure/fantasy.

    Very Good

    I enjoyed the series although I thought it could have been a little deeper than it was..but it was a good read none the less and would recommend it.

    This is a great read! Took all three books on vacation and read

    This is a great read! Took all three books on vacation and read straight through - excellent swashbuckling story. Enough character development so you care about the good guys and hate the bad guys but the story does not get bogged down in long descriptive passages. Rollicking fun read with plenty of action!
