Fallen Blade
2 : Bared Blade

by Kelly McCullough
Nov 2, 2015
6 Hours
Ages 18+
Former temple assassin Aral Kingslayer has a price on his head and a mark on his soul. After his goddess was murdered, Aral found refuge in the shadow jack business, fixing problems for those on the fringes of Tien’s underworld. It’s a long step down from working for the Goddess of Justice, but it gives Aral and Triss—the living shadow who is his secret partner—a reason to get up in the morning.

When two women hit a rough spot in the tavern Aral uses for an office, he and Triss decide to lend a helping hand--only to find themselves in the middle of a three-way battle to find an artifact that just might be the key to preventing a war. And with so many factions on their trail, Aral and Triss are attracting a lot more attention than anyone featured on ten thousand wanted posters can afford…

Worldbuilding and Magic Exploration by Amanda (Posted on 8/10/2018)
The overall plot of the Fallen Blade series takes a back seat in this entry, making it a sort of large side-story that focuses more on world-building and magic exploration, with some focus on Aral's continued work toward breaking away from his alcoholism. One of the more enjoyable and noteworthy elements of this book are the interesting races and magic types. More races will be introduced in future installments, and Kelly is a noteworthy author and this a noteworthy series in that it does not simply copy and paste from Tolkien's races.

Some issues with this installment, though...

There are some times that the magic doesn't make sense, or what Aral accomplishes is inconsistent to what is discussed in either this installment or somewhere else in the series. For example, it's made a major point later in the series that Aral is not that great as magic. But he accomplishes something in this book that would scream otherwise - something that it's like there is NO way he should have been able to do on himself if he was supposedly not that great at magic.

There's also a lot of telling in this book when showing would have been more appropriate.
Retun of the Blade by Scott (Posted on 5/31/2018)
This was another good production by GA. Don't let my low score put you off. I like this book well, but I still feel like I don't understand how this world works, how magic works, the gods and what is metaphor an what is literal. That is mostly world building and the responsibility of the author not the audio team. Still its a exciting adventure with a somewhat more positive than last time Blade who is no longer drinking, much as he tries to help a dyad recover a jewel that if it isn't returned will mean a ware between at least two countries.

I actually like this one better then the first book. Will continue listening to this series.
Book 2 by ryan (Posted on 11/26/2017)
I think I like the world this book is set in more than I actually like the story itself. This book is mostly more of the same from the last book. Aral is slowly trying to drag himself up out of the whole he is in while getting a few more pieces and tid bits of what really happened to the temple when it fell.

Gets Better by Travis (Posted on 4/16/2016)
The first one was interesting, and fun, but I really liked this one more. Took me a while to get used to the narrator and the main character to be in the same voice, but once I got past that, I really enjoyed it. Graphic Audio is always topnotch in production value. The characters are interesting and the story is entertaining.
Nicely Done! by Victor (Posted on 12/19/2015)
The first two books are well done; a complex, flawed hero and his god (love the voice of the latter!); in the vein of "Night Angel" stories
Book 2 by justin (Posted on 12/8/2015)
Great follow up to the first book
