Nathan is regretting his choices that he made at the end of the first book, and has made a deal to rectify his past judgements. Is this a good idea? It certainly doesn't seem that way. We return once more to a briliantly crafted world in which names of all types carry power, and the gods of Egypt are real. After the emotional gut punch at the end of book one you might expect a breather, but Oxford doesn't slow down at all.
Most sequels drag and do not live up to their predecessor's success, but Sword doesn't do that at all. It takes and builds on the momentum from the first novel and continues fly along at breakneck speed, dragging the reader along on its twisty path. One thing I'll say about Oxford, he isn't afraid to make you think you are on one path, only to reveal that you have been on another all along. His writing style is quick and hits you emotionally like a blast from young Mike Tyson. I cannot wait for book 3!
Bennet continues to prove his talant. His reading style really meshes well with Oxford's writing, and you won't be able to think any one else could ever narrate these stories. He has quickly become a favored narrator for me.

There has always been a formula for creating epic fantasy. Some basics that almost always must be applied to create a great story. This series has all of those basic qualities and more. If you are a fan of epic fantasies sick as Tolkien and brooks created you will thoroughly enjoy this new masterpiece series. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Thoroughly enjoyed this second instalment!
Great use of comedy, sarcasm and wit alongside enough tension, intrigue and mystery to really keep you entertained!
I listened at 1.25 speed and didn’t notice any decrease in quality or enjoyment!
Really looking forward to the next one!
