Publisher's Summary

A kidnapped girl. Nations in conflict. Legends of an ancient kingdom. And one amateur thief finds himself at the center of it all.
Era cares only of surpassing his father's infamy as a master thief - until he stumbles onto a kidnapped girl and promises to return her home. Dreaming of a quick and easy reward, Era and his thieving partner Jem set off to return the girl to her wealthy father. However, when bounty hunters and elemental mercenaries attack to recapture the girl, her claims of ignorance begin to ring hollow. When the girl's own elemental talents are revealed, Era begins to question what else she may be hiding.
As Era fights off foe after foe with his untrained earth shaping skills, the temptation to simply collect the reward on her head sparks an inner conflict between his moral foundation and the future he has always wanted.
In this first book of the Runics series, Jeff Kish delivers fun characters, escalating stakes, and even a hint of romance as this exhilarating novel introduces listeners to the unique and marvelous continent of Castuni.

Diamond Bonds

Any additional comments?

Very good and very imaginative, but not too much. The story has the right amount of twists and turns... the characters have the right amount of mystery and intrigue...
I'm looking forward for the next book in the series!

Great rookie effort! I forgot it was a first book

Would you consider the audio edition of Diamond Bonds to be better than the print version?

For me, yes. I on't have the time to read books, due to a busy schedule, but during business travel listen to them all the time. I am not saying the audio is better, just better for me.

What did you like best about this story?

Creative use of gifts that each character had. Good character development.

What does Aaron Cleveland bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Aaron did a great job of capturing the personality of the characters with accents and voice intonation. I was not that fond of the voice chosen for Di, but as the story went on, it blended well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I never have time to listen to any book in 1 sitting, but the story and acting were compelling for me to return over several days.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to book 2. I liked the balance of humor and suspense.

Gripping fantasy

Would you listen to Diamond Bonds again? Why?

Yes. The story was instantly gripping and fast paced.

What other book might you compare Diamond Bonds to, and why?

I could not compare it to any other book as it is a good book in its own right.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There was a scene at the end of a chapter about 75% of the way through that completely shocked me as I was not expecting it! I will not say any more in case I give anything away.
