Publisher's Summary

Markal, an apprentice wizard, is thrust unexpectedly to the head of his order when his master is decapitated by a gray-skinned assassin. The order's walled gardens have the power to restore their dead master to life, but only if the apprentices can protect his body long enough for their sanctuary to work its magic.
When a barbarian warrior named Bronwyn invades the gardens wielding a soul-binding sword and accuses the order of harboring a powerful sorcerer, Markal thinks she is another assassin come to finish the job. But Bronwyn is a paladin, a holy warrior from across the mountains, and her presence is a harbinger of a greater threat than Markal had imagined, a necromancer with the power to command the dead.
Together, they must join forces before the necromancer destroys Markal's order and overruns Bronwyn's homeland.

Enjoyable but Lacks Depth

The Red Sword is a well rounded Fantasy Adventure story with likable characters, exciting action, and nefarious plots. However, good or bad, it is simplistic in its execution.

This simplicity helps keep the book light and easy to listen to, but also predictable and full of old tropes. Your first impression of a character will be your only impression. The larger plot can be guessed from chapter 1. And the good guys scrape through combat with plucky determination, but not without losses.

The Red Sword is a good book for Young Adults or audiences looking for an inoffensive Fantasy Adventure with steady morals and steers clear of heavy philosophising.

red sonjia esque

This book was slow at the beginig. but after a while the pace picked up. this book feels like the 80s movie red sonjia it has that barbarian on a quest type of feel. I'm not sure I will listen to the sequels but the storyline and characters were ok. I feel like there should have been more backstory but Maybe there will be In the sequels. all and all a nice read.
