_Theft of Swords_ by Michael J. Sullivan

They killed the king. They pinned it on two men. They chose poorly.
There's no ancient evil to defeat or orphan destined for greatness, just unlikely heroes and classic adventure. Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, are running for their lives when they're framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy that goes beyond the overthrow of a tiny kingdom, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery before it's too late.

Fun and fast-paced, this sounds like a story that is worth suspending your disbelief!

"Hair-raising escapes, flashy sword fights, and faithful friendship complete the formula for good old-fashioned escapist fun."  (Publishers Weekly 2011)

"This epic fantasy showcases the arrival of a master storyteller." (Library Journal 2011)

    Okay thanks. I just didn't want to feel left out or anything because of my age.

    This has nothing to do with the book, but I am curious if I am the youngest in this group. Cause I'm 17.

      Morgan-- I haven't polled people but it seems like the youngest members have been college students...you are welcome in any case. Lots of variety in age, occupation/interests, point of view on the books.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
