    Just finished it. Another excellent read. Really looking forward to the rest of the series.

  • Rich Radgoski says:

    looks intriguing

  • Sasha says:

    Greetings Mr. Robertson,

    I have only read the first 5% of The Red Sea and I have already laughed out loud several times. I loved the Cycle of Arawn and have gotten others to try them out as well. This is fantastic! I am looking forward to the journey I am reading about now and more of Blays and Dante’s adventures in the future. Please don’t stop writing these! These books are right up there with my favorites from Brent Weeks, Mark Lawrence, and Kevin Hearne.

    • Ed Robertson says:

      So sorry for the delayed response, real comments sometimes get buried in spam. Working on that.

      That said, it’s so great to hear you’re liking the two series! Being compared to Weeks, Lawrence, and Hearne is highly flattering. There will be at least two more books in the Cycle of Galand and I’m certainly open to a third trilogy after that, so there should be plenty more reading to come. :)

  • Aaron says:

    the Cycle of Arawn was one of the most pleasant surprises I’ve happened upon in years. I typically remain fairly skeptical when starting a new series; I guess I can be a little…particular. From the first chapter, though, I was hooked. I preordered The Red Sea before completing The White Tree, and–having just finished this latest installment–am thanking myself for doing so! Which reminds me: Thank you. I can’t wait to read what happens next.

    • Ed Robertson says:

      Thanks so much. I can be particular, too, so that means a lot!

      I started writing the sequel to The Red Sea a few days ago. Hoping to have it out by the end of November.

  • Shaun says:

    I’m currently reading the first of the Arawn series and have just noticed. Even more excited to get through them now.

    Without spoilers, is this a prequel series or a follow-on? I’ve tried not to read a description of the first book in case I read something I don’t want to see.

    *The White Tree is great so far!

    • Ed Robertson says:

      It’s a follow on! So you might want to wait on reading the description until finishing the original trilogy.

      …er, if you haven’t already. Sorry for the delayed response, it’s a spam issue I hope to solve soon.

    Love the cycle of arawn. I tend to be extremely busy so I listen to it on audiobook. After finishing the series I immediately restarted it to laugh and enjoy all the epic journeys and blunders of the two making their mark in history starting and ending wars. Will the red sea be making its way to audiobook soon? The author for arawn is perfect! Can’t imagine anyone else narrating the story. The other guy is also right. You are most definitely up there with Brent weeks. The cycle actually replaced light bringer as my favorite series. This is also one I would love to see be made into a tv series, if only to knock GoT off its pedestal but to also give the non book lovers a glimpse into what they are missing. Keep up the good work sir. I’m planning on starting your breaker series next.

    • Ed Robertson says:

      Thanks so much, it’s still surreal to be compared to someone like Weeks. And I absolutely love the job Tim did narrating the Cycle. Writing the new books, there are times I hear their words in his voice!

      Speaking of, The Red Sea will definitely be on audiobook soon. It’s in production right now. I don’t know the release date yet, but my publishers are very excited to follow up on Arawn.

      Nobody from TV’s knocking on my door yet, but who knows! I think GoT has brought a lot of new readers into epic fantasy, though, so even if it’s the only epic series to make it to TV, it’s done a great job.

  • Edward Hanson says:

    I think The Cycle of Arawn is my favorite book series of all time next to
    Trysmoon Saga, Harry Potter, The inheritance cycle and comparible with many more….


  • Bisrat says:

    Is the audiobook version of The Red Sea gonna come out soon on audible?

  • Meg Munro says:

    I read the Red Sea before I read the Trilogy and I cannot say enough GREAT things about your stories.
    Dante and Blays are two of the best characters I’ve ever followed. They compliment each other well. Dante is all business while Blays is (mostly) a riot in all sense of the word.
    I’m so glad I discovered you!!!!!!!!!

  • DJ says:

    Congratulations on your success thus far. I’ve just completed the Cycle of Arawn and it was awesome. Very fun, exciting and gripping. I wish you the very best for the future. You are going to be BIG. Keep up the great work.
    Best regards,

  • Dustin Mooney says:

    Hello, I have completed the Cycle of Arawn and the first book of the Cycle of Galand. Any ideas when the Silver Thief will be on Audio Book?

    • Dustin Mooney says:

      On another note.. I have read many many books.. I love yours.. Thank you for working so hard on these and Keep up the good work!!!

      • Ed Robertson says:

        The audiobook for The Silver Thief is being produced as we speak. I don’t have a date from my publisher yet, but I’m betting it’ll be out within the next couple months. Great to hear you’re getting a kick out of the series.

  • Dustin Mooney says:

    Thanks man!!! ill start the Breaker series now!!!

  • Fabrice Gautier says:


    Has this book been removed from the Apple iBooks store?

    I have read it on my iPad, but now if I look for it I get an “unavailable in the US store” message. The “iBooks” links above also result in such message…
