The Sworn

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date

17 hours 26 minutes
As plague and famine scourge the Winter Kingdoms, a vast invasion force is mustering from beyond the northern seas. And at its heart, a dark spirit mage wields the blood magic of ancient, vanquished gods.

Summoner-King Martris Drayke must attempt to meet this great threat, gathering an army from a country ravaged by civil war. Neighboring lands reel toward anarchy while plague decimates their leaders. Drayke must seek new allies from among the living-and the dead-as an untested generation of rulers face their first battle.

Then someone disturbs the legendary Dread as they rest in a millennia-long slumber beneath sacred barrows. Their warrior guardians, the Sworn, know the Dread could be pivotal as a force for great good or evil. But if it's the latter, could even the Summoner-King's sorcery prevail?

I found this book a little hard to follow just listening to it. I am sure had I been reading it I would not have struggled as much. Once I was able to follow the characters and understand the different lands they lived and ruled in, I really started to enjoy this book. Gail Z. Martin put a different spin on the use of necromancy that I thoroughly enjoyed! The narrator did a good job. He kept his voices consistent and that is a necessity when listening to audiobooks!
