Summary

The Downs, the poor district of the city of Avarest, is home to cutthroats and thieves, pickpockets and prostitutes, all of whom pay tribute to one of two powerful crime bosses.

It is also home to Aaron Envelar, a disillusioned sellsword known as the Silent Blade, who cares nothing for the criminal overlords or their schemes, who only wants to survive and make a little coin in the process. 

But when a group of unwitting thugs steal his mother’s necklace, the only link he has to his murdered parents, Aaron decides that sometimes gold isn’t enough - sometimes, blood is the only payment worth taking. And whatever else will come, this time, he will not be silent. After all, when you take everything from a man, what else does he have to lose?

Good read and listen..

Alrighty, then! For a novella this had so much killing I couldn’t even tell you how many died. But it was actually a good little story and I might read/listen to another one about Aaron Envelar, of the Seven Virtues series. No sex and the F-bomb was used 9 times. As to the narration: Steven Brand did a fine job on the men’s voices and his emotions but he does need some help with the women’s voices.

A GREAT Start

This is a perfect prelude to the series, of which I cannot wait to get started. The character was filled in and we now have a solid path forward, complete with villian and NPCs. Excellent narration as well.

captured my interest

great opening. I'm interested in the world and characters. I like that the basin character is vulnerable yet skilled.
