I must say I enjoyed this trilogy. To have all 3 rolled up together was a big bonus. Although I liked this trilogy, it started off a bit slow and took some time develop. Once it did, it moved at good pace. It kept me interested and looking forward to what happened next. The characters had good depth and the world building was accomplished without getting weighed down in over reaching detail. At first I thought the narration was going to make me turn it off but David Stifel got into a groove and delivered a solid performance. There were several twists throughout you could not see coming. My only negative aspect of the whole trilogy is there were more than a few situations where the characters were saved by divine intervention. Being saved by divine intervention is believable once but any more than that seems slightly unbelievable and excessive.
I really like Aarons writing style and look forward to reading more from him. In conclusion, this series is a great listen. You won’t be disappointed.
Even though this book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review, my review is honest and from the heart!

Firstly this book is a very good value. 3 books for just a single credit is a great deal, and this is the complete series so you know that you are getting the whole story. Book one seems like a fantasy retelling of Star Wars: A New Hope, which is not a complaint. If you like those kind of Hero Journey stories then this is the series for you. Books 2 and 3 take the Hero's journey in a different directions, and become less derivative of the Star Wars saga. I love how they introduce the antagonist of Gabriel and make you really understand and sympathize with him. The narrator has a pleasant voice and brought the story to life. My one big complaint was the epilogue. The conclusion to the story was so beautiful, but then the epilogue comes and just ruins it. Other than that it was a great book and I loved it.
I want to thank the author for providing me with a free review copy of the Sword of Light series.
