Theft of Swords is a sci-fi & fantasy audiobook written by bestseller author Michael J. Sullivan. It is the first in The Riyria Revelations Audiobook 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.

When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first audiobooks of his Riyria Revelations, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere.

Theft of Swords Audiobook contains The Crown Conspiracy and Avempartha, audiobooks 1 and 2 of Riyria Revelations.

What is the story?

Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles-until they are hired to pilfer a famed sword. What appears to be just a simple job finds them framed for the murder of the king and trapped in a conspiracy that uncovers a plot far greater than the mere overthrow of a tiny kingdom.

Can a self-serving thief and an idealistic swordsman survive long enough to unravel the first part of an ancient mystery that has toppled kings and destroyed empires?

And so begins the first tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.

Why should you listen to Theft of Swords Audiobook free?

If you are in the mood for a light, fun read without gore, sex, and foul language, this is the book for you. It is clean enough for an 8-year-old to listen to it, exciting enough to keep a pre-teen enchanted through the entire telling, and deep enough to entertain adults.

Theft of Swords Audiobook Mp3 has everything a fantasy reader wants: engaging characters, good plot, appropriate world-building… what lets it down is that I was never quite invested in the lives of our 2 male leads, Royce and Hadrian.

There’s nothing groundbreaking here – deliberately so – Michael J Sullivan has created a series using traditional fantasy tropes and he makes no apologies for it. None are needed because he has created an amazing world that I cannot wait to jump back into.

The world-building, characters, and story arc are all excellent but I have to single out the prose and dialogue for stellar praise. The back and forth between the characters is a joy; funny, realistic and organic. The prose is unfussy and clean; helping to push the story along well. The pacing is perfect.

If you are into high fantasy, this is definitely an audiobook you should listen to. And if you’re not, it’s an excellent opportunity to dive into the world of magic and epic battles.
