Description

It doesn’t take a legendary sword to make a legendary swordsman, but it certainly helps.

Keras Selyrian is already well on the way to cutting his name into the annals of legend. He’s fought false divinities, thieving sorcerers, and corrupt demigods - and left them defeated in his wake.

But he’s a long way from home, and Kaldwyn offers a different brand of danger than he’s used to. He’s already got a sword of unfathomable power, but it’s damaged and leaking world-annihilating mana, so he’s in the market for a new one. Possibly six. The more the better, really.

The Six Sacred Swords are Kaldwyn’s most famous artifacts, forged as the only means to defeat the god beasts. Each sword must be earned by a worthy champion, and no single person has ever managed to collect them all.

Not yet, at least. Keras is just getting started.

Six Sacred Swords is a lighthearted fantasy adventure inspired by Japanese game series like The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Fire Emblem. It takes place in the same universe as the Arcane Ascension novels, but years earlier and with a different protagonist. While the books are interconnected, they can be listened to on their own in any order.

For appendices with further details on the magic and characters, please download the supplementary PDF.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

My God he can write a book

Seriously. Yes this is a lore fill book but at the same time it ties up the story and how characters come to meet and come to power. Can't wait for the next book in THE S. A. M series to see what happens next. This book runs along side the main series but it's own series as well. Keep them coming Rowe seriously keep it up. And nick keep up the narration!!!

Enjoyable but...

This was a perfectly acceptable off shoot to the Arcane Ascension series that the author has started. But like many offshoots it falls short of the original. It is an entertaining story but the complexity and character development is not as in depth as the original series.

Nick Podehl, as the narrator in both series, delivers a flawless performance as usual.

Epic side story to an epic series

This book cleared a lot of things up and made the first two books really come together. I wouldn't call it a 2.5 book but I will accept it. Nick does a great job as always. I will need to rehear the other four books from Rowe to refresh my memory. awesome how the two book series came to a crossing.

LOVE IT

Im not going to lie, I was hesitant to pick up a book that wasn't in the main series (Arcane Ascension). After just listening to the first few chapters I realized I loved this book. I really like the badass "unbreakable" character is also a witty person. The humor to badassery is fantastic. 10/10 would recommend.

I want more!!!

I love Andrew’s work on Sufficiently Advanced Magic books! Light, interesting and not hard to follow. In this book, Dawn Bringer was hilarious and life of the party! Can’t wait for the next audiobook!

Different names, same characters. One trick pony?

I gave the first book of the Arcane Ascension series a rave review, although I did not rate the others in the series. As this is a spinoff of that series, I feel an obligation to offset that rave.

The lead character in Six Sacred Swords, Keras Selyrian, was introduced in book 1 of the Arcane Ascension series as a somewhat dark, mysterious, knowing and worldly man. (Spoiler ahead - skip to the next paragraph to avoid.) When he reappeared at the end of that series, his character had changed, although it is only in retrospect that it becomes glaring that his back-story and character had not been developed until then, and was likely due to Rowe's plotting out this book.

Now that Karas has his own series, it is evident that Karas has lost the mystery, several years, and much of the apparent knowledge and wisdom with which he had been introduced. The only mystery left is kept as an unanswered question. It is so blatantly stated that you even know what the question is - it is just not answered. I find that that question alone is not enough to be interested in Karas, and I almost did not finish the book.

Quite early in this book, I realized that the character, Karas, was the same in mannerisms, speech and thought patterns, as the lead character in the prior series, Corin Cadence. - In fact, I had to go back and double check that it was supposed to be a different person, and that I hadn't been confused about the names! - Corin was ok for one series, but there isn't enough meat in this plot to carry another him through it, no matter what his name is.

Nick Podehl does a great job with the narration, as always, and he clearly does what he can with the character. He can, however, only work with what he has been given by the author.

I will not be buying the next book.

Excellent as usual, less gamelit/litrpg

The story runs from the perspective of Kerras. It is well written, funny dialogues inbetween great fighting scenes. Nick Podehl does an excellent job (as usual) in portraying the characters. This book has much less gamelit/litrpg elements, because the protagonists magic functions differently than in sufficiently advanced magic/on the shoulders of titans.

Really recommend it!

Besser als die Hauptgeschichte

Der Sprecher ist ohnehin super... Aber diese neben Geschichte am lagerfeuer ist super. Mich hat die noch mehr gefesselt als die zwei vorigen Bücher und die waren schon klasse.

Phenomenal story! Well written and read.

I enjoyed Andrew Rowes books immensely - this one is no difference. Nicely described locations, characters and story that immerses you to the bone. I'm waiting for the next one!
