    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.

    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.

    Fun and entertaining!

    PRO:
    This story is a lot of fun. I found myself laughing out loud a few times and having to explain to people around me that I was listening to something. I can't wait for the next installment of the series.

    The dialog between Karas and Reika is spot on and Nick Podehl does an amazing job of giving them each a voice and personality! (I will never look at ducks the same way again.)

    CON:
    The only thing about the book that drove me absolutely bonkers was that Andrew Rowe used the word "sapient" instead of "sentient". For MULTIPLE objects that are clearly sentient (not sapient).

    For example: Dawnbringer is a sentient sword. She can speak to her wielder, throw out sass, and feel when someone cast magic through her blade. All of which falls clearly into "sentient" meaning of "able to perceive or feel things."

    For contrast, "sapient" means "wise, or attempting to appear wise." OR "relating to the human species" and given that Dawnbringer is a sword who confesses to have never been out in the world, she is clearly not either definition of "sapient".

    I won't give anymore details of the book to prevent spoiling it.. Just know that you will hear "sapient" used and if you are confused, replace the word with "sentient" -- I really wish the publisher's proof reader had caught this (LOL)

    CONCLUSION:
    Still well worth the listen and I'm totally hooked on the series!

    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.

    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!!!

    Doesn't meet the standards of Rowe's other series

    I know this book was to provide background on his other series, but I don't think it provided enough to make up for shallow characters and a weak story. I also think it was trying a little too hard to be humorous. If it wasn't for my love of Arcane Ascension series and my like of The War of Broken Mirrors series, I probably wouldn't have finished and gave it a 1 star.

    Disappointing compared to his earlier works

    This book was entertaining enough that I finished it and didn't return it (barely), but it was mostly just disappointing. It was a long series of fight scenes that felt a bit repetitive and were mostly solved via deus ex machina kind of endings. The characters made a point, instead of being clever, of solving all problems via cheating (by virtue of being from somewhere else so he didn't know how to do otherwise), and a perpetual talk about how excited the main character was to find a "worthy fight" was in stark contract to the fact that he perpetually got his ass kicked and has his injuries massively talked up, which then again perpetually contracted with the fact that he'd join yet another fight again five minutes later. The point being, nothing was really believable, the the "show don't tell" advice for authors seemed not only to be ignored but to be on conflict as what the characters actually "showed" was in stark contract to the courage, intelligence, or fighting ability that was perpetually attributed to them. So yeah, quite disappointing. I also had a minor complaint, which is that in the opening scenes a fight between two characters was perpetually described with one of the two characters being described as "they." I don't know what this was about, but all it did for me was make the scene very confusing as I kept having to rewind to check and see if someone else had joined the scene only to discover that the plural was in fact being used to apply to a single character, again. Not sure what that was about, but it made an already rather mediocre book start with a rather annoying writing dynamic that made one distrust the narrator in a way that also further detracted from the whole story. This then fed into the sense that what was described about the characters conflicted with the traits they exhibited, leaving one with a broad sense of inept characters and a dishonest narrator both. This made the book frustrating on top of being disappointing.

    An excellent blend of humor and swashbuckling fun

    As usual, Nick podehl did an excellent job near Reading this Book. Andrew Rowe wrote an entertaining introduction to his new series and I look forward to reading the next book. this is the first book of his that I've read, and I'm very happy to have come across him. his blend of humor and heroism and swashbuckling fun was engaging and extremely entertaining.

    Amazing backstory

    This is best listened to after the fist two books in the Arcane Ascension series. This will help explain who the narrator is talking to and why. I can be read on its own but you may be a bit confused at times.

    That said, I laughed out load several times listening to this. I love the world that Andrew Rowe has built in these books. The author does a wonderful job ignoring the tired tropes of fantasy and putting a good twist on things that even catches his characters off guard. This is a great story with a dragon and a magic sword and a main character who has a flair for dramatic storytelling. I highly recommend it,

    Weak story

    Not like his other work. There isn't any character development, no big twists or big surprises. The Maincharacter is anoying and so are his companions. Combatscenes are well written but that's about it.

    Not as good as Arcane Ascension, but still great.

    Story is a bit less gripping than with Arcane Ascension, due to the main character being to clean and perfect. But still a good novel in a great universe. And the narrator is one of the best ever.

    ... and it's even funny!!

    I was surprised that this book was having such funny elements! It's not often that I laugh out loud listening to an audio book, but here it happened frequently. Very good characters, and the plot also. Be surprised!
    Andrew Rowe: write more, fast, if it's so good and ... novel. Pun. Do I get a point? Hint ... hello Dawn!

    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!

    Schwächer als Arcane Ascension Bücher

    Wesentlich schwächere Geschichte als Arcane Ascension, zu Zeiten etwas zu albern, Charaktere sind etwas simpel und ohne größere Überraschungen
    Der Sprecher ist aber nach wie vor genial und die Geschichte trotz der Schwächen unterhaltsam und nimmt zum Ende Fahrt auf
