- By: Matthew Wolf

When legends come to life, the world trembles from a single name. Ronin. Once-heroes from a different age, they wield elemental powers: wind, water, fire, stone, forest, sun, moon, flesh, and metal. At the same time, a young man discovers his best friend with a sword in her stomach and dark wings sprouting from her back. Guards rush to the scene and accuse him of the act, and he is forced to flee.
Awesome epic fantasy!

Great story, fantastic narrator!
The Knife's Edge is a great story and a great start of what has to become a great series. The story is fast paced, thrilling and exciting. In the book something exciting happens on almost every page, so in the audio book this translates to almost every minute. This all without getting tiring, a great job by the author.
I loved reading the book and I loved it again when listening to this version. Having read the earlier version of the book, some parts were new to me, which was a nice surprise. As a non-native English speaker, sometimes the language used was a bit 'difficult' for me, so I was glad to have read the book first, in my own tempo. This helped especially with names of places, people or objects: I could now easily recognize them because I knew them already.
The performance of Tim Gerard Reynolds is superb, as promised by Matthew:) He is able to give the main characters each their unique voice, so they are easy to recognize and come even more to life!
Now on to the next part: Citadel of Fire!
