Ticca is a newly-minted Dagger, a young honorable mercenary out to prove her worth in the big city. Her first job seems like a simple one, but it sets her on a path to a destiny bigger than she ever dreamed. The friends she makes along the way may have destinies of their own to fulfill: Lebuin a new Journeyman mage and a fastidious dandy, has just learned to his horror that his new rank involves actual journeying - and dirt! And Ticca is worried about Lebuin's humble servant, Ditani, as she is sure he is more than he seems and might be a spy for Lebuin's nemesis.
The three of them are swept into a series of deadly events. Fighting to stay ahead of their adversaries, they stumble into secrets that catapult them towards disaster that even the Gods are not prepared for.
The complete list of narrators includes Jennifer O'Donnell, Denise Poirier, and Chris Ruen.

How to break immersion...
Expansive story, characters
A cross between LOTR and Ender's Game; It has the scope of LOTR but with the inner dialogue of Ender's
Proper pronunciation of all the unique words and names
No dragons were harmed in the making of this fantasy epic.
Please, please, please either remove or re-evaluate the use of sound effects in this book [series]. The sounds either completely break immersion or drown out the narrators, which is the entire point of listening. I don't really need to hear a sound bite of a mob every time there is a large fight scene or hear a blade drawn every time the action is mentioned.
- Sam Poe
Strong performances from all involved
As long as book 2 is converted to audio format I'll be listening at least once more as a refresher. I've already read the book twice so it's entirely likely that at some point down the road I will want another listen of this book.
The introduction of Duke is a pretty memorable moment in the story. The part where Ticca escapes for the knife in green is also a great moment.
This story has a bit of a sound effect soundtrack to compliment the narration. There are times when that can actually detract a bit, but overall it's adds some nice depth to the normal audio book experience.
There are a few parts of this book that are worth a quiet chuckle.
Thread Slivers was one of the best independent books that I read in 2013. I was very excited to see an audio version of the book being made available and recommend this to fans of epic fantasy.
