Soulbrand: Weapons and Wielders, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Tournament of the Sacred Sword sounded like exactly the type of thing Keras would enjoy: a series of challenges for thousands of contestants seeking a chance to fight for the Sacred Sword of Earth.
He knew there would be challenges. It wouldn’t be a high-stakes tournament without a few high-profile assassinations and mysterious murders, after all. But Keras wasn’t ready to run into someone from his homeland, and he certainly wasn’t prepared for the revelations that came from their confrontation.
Still reeling from the strange revelations of their meeting, Keras plunges back into the fight, preparing for the battle royale - a massive free-for-all contest outside of the scope of the standard tournament rounds. When the consequences of that match tear at the bonds between his allies, he’ll have to face new challenges alone.
Satoshi Muramasa, the strange swordsman from the distant kingdom of Artinia. Crown Princess Edria Song, the Wielder of Diamantine. Ishyeal Dawnsglow, the Wielder of Soulbrand.
When their blades clash, the heart of the world will tremble.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There's JRPG elements, but fun magic systems, poking fun of tropes, etc...but for additional oomph, there's a lot of very sensible, accepting, and quite frankly wise character interactions that are absent from so many books... and most importantly, I can't stress this enough - none of it feels even slightly forced, nor intrusive.
Except for the editing. I count at least 100 spelling errors, wrong verb tenses, adjectives used as verbs and sentences missing words entirely.
Despite that, and it was JARRING, to read that way... this book kicked so much butt.
Finally we get the info we've been waiting for... and are left with SOOOOO many more questions.
The next book can't come fast enough.
Arcane Ascension is good but Weapons and Wielders - magnum opus.
Andrew Rowe is such a talented author; what the heck happened here?
This story could have been solved in half a chapter if all the people involved had sat around a table with pen a paper and talked, like regular humans of above 11. Instead, they collectively decide separately to stupidly try to drown themself in a fake “**Popular guys have emo vibe crisis: I'm deep and there is no drama like my drama.**”
Point to Keras for spending all three books trying to get someone to talk. Until, of course, he became wanna be fake emo too.
Half the book could have been called “Do not talk to me! I’m dark and tormented” (add black eyeliner and violin music for effects ).
And the other half should be called “Bad Keras! How to get dominated and blinded by the traumas of your possessive and emotional manipulative sword.”
So are we to accept that this guy managed to survive to his late twenties with his “all solving superpower” sane and in good health, and now he falls in love with a sharp phallic object, and now she is like, “you are right; I can't save everybody if the cost is you mad me oh my beautiful sexy-sword.” This is like that other book where the guy was havening s_x with his donkey, but way worse, this is a freaking knife.
The other issue with the book is the story. It was going very solid and consistent until this book. Then bang! Time to set more plot lines for a sequel series and not solve the plot lines already open ever.
This guy is one of the most talented writers I follow; I'm sad this ended like this.

I did have one big issues with this third book though. Dawn, never liked her as a character. As a weapon she is great just don’t liked her personality. This was fine as I accept I won’t identify and think, hey I could hang out with this person regarding everyone. That’s ok. However in this volume she became sooooo whiney I nearly stopped reading because Keras did too!!! Between 40-50% it just went on and on and on AND ON and I thought, just bloody sell her and be done! I am a huge fan of Rowe but this section nearly pushed me over the edge. Sorry, it did. Was not fun to read and I found myself skim reading thinking when will it end. I really hope never to see endless whining again like this in your books. It took the Sara Cadence syndrome to a whole other level.
Assured from that I want to finish with that I did like the book and if you can slog through that part you will too!
Amazing story, lovely characters, super exciting fights, there just that sadness because you know how it ends.
10/10, would recommend.
