I enjoy fantasy adventure books in general however I do believe I have gotten a little bit sick of the "Mary Sue" archetypes that litter them. This is a take on the "heroes on a quest" idea that doesn't in fact feature that many heroes. The fact that the hero of the story is in a thief only masquerading as a hero gives the story the feeling that it's going to be familiar but with a twist. Unfortunately I feel that fantasy books can easily get bogged down in its own lore and the pathfinder universe is quite thick with its own lore. This story however avoids getting stuck in an endless loop of names and towns that doesn't even matter and only really wants you to come along for the ride with the rogue and his magical sword.
Would you listen to Liar's Blade again? Why?
Most definitely, I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I bought it because I was looking for a light fantasy novel and it's got rogues, and well I love me some rogues.
What did you like best about this story?
I love the world, I've been playing a lot of the Pathfinder campaigns with my gaming group and reading this I hear about places and events from the campaigns that intertwine into the story wonderfully, not to mention the creatures and locations that are all too familiar to me as well.
What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He did a great job, each character had a distinct voice and they were a pleasure to listen to. Though I just picked up the sequel to this book: Liar's Island and I was disappointed to find there was a new narrator and well... I don't like the new guy as much.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to 3/4 of the book in one sitting, it was enjoyable but it was light, it wasn't a book that I couldn't wait to get back into or dreamt about what would happen next. It was just a light enjoyable read.
