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.

In this book the action just keeps going. The Writer and the Painter are forced to deal with several of their issues and Nathan learns what his brother is really like. The storyline and writing are done very well. the narration is perfect. I loved every second and would recommend it to all!

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!
