Overview

This is a collection of the first three titles in the Sanctuary Series, which is about a warrior in the mythical world of Arkaria, facing great battles against magical and fantastical foes. (Approx. 357,000 words or 950 pages total.)

 

The world of Arkaria is a dangerous place, filled with dragons, titans, goblins and other dangers. Those who live in this world are faced with two choices: live an ordinary life or become an adventurer and seek the extraordinary.

 

Books included:

 

1. Defender

2. Avenger

3. Champion

 

Defender:

 

Cyrus Davidon leads a small guild in the human capital of Reikonos. Caught in an untenable situation, facing death in the den of a dragon, they are saved by the brave fighters of Sanctuary who offer an invitation filled with the promise of greater adventure. Soon Cyrus is embroiled in a mystery - someone is stealing weapons of nearly unlimited power for an unknown purpose, and Sanctuary may be the only thing that stands between the world of Arkaria and total destruction.

 

Avenger:

 

When a series of attacks on convoys draws suspicion that Sanctuary is involved, Cyrus Davidon must put aside his personal struggles and try to find the raiders. As the attacks worsen, Cyrus and his comrades find themselves abandoned by their allies, surrounded by enemies, facing the end of Sanctuary and a war that will consume their world.

 

Champion:

 

As the war heats up in Arkaria, Vara is forced to flee after an ancient order of skilled assassins infiltrates Sanctuary and targets her. Cyrus Davidon accompanies her home to the elven city of Termina and the two of them become embroiled in a mystery that will shake the very foundations of the Elven Kingdom – and Arkaria.

The Sanctuary Series is nothing short of amazing. Robert J. Crane does an excellent job of writing and keeping a series going. I impatiently await each of his new books and am so glad I found his books. Sanctuary keeps you coming back for more.

This box set marks the start of a sweeping epic of a tale. Think along the lines of Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings and add in humour and Crane's engaging style of writing and I think that this book will leave you wanting more. Markedly different from his other series, this story draws you in; connects you with the landscapes and lore created and, more importantly provides a cast of characters which are strong, yet vulnerable.  And ultimately, it is these who will have you coming back for more. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Technical writing is obviouly a given. However, the story itself is where this book suffers. The ease with which the warriors dispatch their foes, which by all accounts should be very difficult, and the spontaneous healing of the warriors in mid-battle makes it an insult to the reader. There are really no cruxs between good guys and bad. I stopped reading a quarter way in. Its like when an experienced writer who can churn out books in their sleep do so to meet a quota, and not meet quality. Dale M. Baranoski

I LOVE this series! The writing is engaging and witty, as are the various characters. And believe me, some really ARE quite the characters! (Vaste, especially, is hilarious!) I would highly recommend this series. In fact, since the first three are free, Go for it! Just be prepared to be wanting to purchase the rest of the series! It's well worth it! P.S. I did not get any kick backs from this review!

This is a pretty good series. I don't think I would give it a 5 normally, but for free it is gets a five. There are good adventures, characters and plot lines. It's easy to like the main characters, even Vara despite her standoffishness. Vaste is a hoot. There are some typo's/poor editing. I enjoyed it so much that I have purchased the other books in the series. For 4.99 they are a good read. I figure I spent $20.00 on books 4,5,6,7 for $20 ifgot 7 books, less than $3.00 each.

The stories are not repugnant, but they are just meh. They feel fanfictionish. Cyrus is a total Mary Sue. And the constant referring to him as " the warrior" gets old. I didn't discard it. But i only continued reading because it cost money. And I'm cheap, not because of any investment in the characters.

I found myself caught up and spellbound by so skilled a world maker. An Epic worthy of Eddings and Herbert.

It's like listening to someone describe playing world of Warcraft and you as the listener have no concept of what fantasy is, also awful character development

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC – I am now faced with a dilemma after reading Defender, Avenger and Champion – do I buy the rest of the series all at once or one at a time. I had read Defender some time ago and just recently had a chance to purchase this Omni set. Loved the unique way of starting each book with the “now” and then developing the story with what had occurred in the past that brings the main character, Cyrus Davidon, to this point in his life. All of the characters are well developed. I highly recommend this series and other series written by Robert J. Crane.

Thete was much more in the individual books. I recommed reading them one at a time, instead of this three book set. The story of these three books is on par with any series you have ever read.
