Thrice upon a time, there were three worlds of magic.

From a remarkable, bestselling husband-and-wife team comes the start of a monumental dragon-laden fantasy series. The Bronze Canticles is an expansive saga chronicling the world-altering changes that take place as three connected universes—the Human world, the Goblin world, and the Faery world—are slowly drawn together.

Book One, Mystic Warrior, centers on young Galen Arvad, a human whose magical powers have branded him a lunatic in the eyes of the community. When Galen is suddenly captured and imprisoned, his wife Berkita and friend, Cephas the dwarf, set off to rescue him from the yearly ritual that would sacrifice local “crazies” to the Dragon Priests. But the fate that awaits Galen may be far worse than even his own death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The scope, detail, meticulous planning, and weaving and winding storyline…are just breathtaking.”

    R. A. Salvatore, New York Times bestselling author

  • “An exciting, adventure-filled read from two of the great storytellers and world builders of our time.”

    Margaret Weis, New York Times bestselling author

  • “This emotionally intense novel’s meticulously crafted magical system and likable characters evoke an atmosphere both timely and timeless. While lively action sequences and rich descriptive passages provide plenty of excitement, mature examinations of politics and individual responsibility lend philosophical weight and emotional poignancy…A fine example of socially conscious and unpredictable imaginative fiction.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Fans of Hickman’s work should be extremely pleased with this audiobook. Lloyd James does a fantastic job performing, really embracing the epic fantasy and giving it an energy and depth on par with the finest narrators in the business…with Lloyd James’ first-rate narration, this is a winner for fans of epic fantasy.”


  • “Lloyd James personifies his characters with imagination and style. With fairies and goblins and trolls, as well as humans, he has a wide range to work with. Whether the hint of some well-known public characters is intentional or merely in the mind of the listener, it adds an undertone of humor and energy to this adventure.”


  • “[James’] semi-voiced reading brings this intriguing fantasy adventure tale to life through his timing, his intonation, and his wide range of accents and voices.”


  • Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tony | 2/20/2014

    " Out of the three most seperate stories, two of them were entertaining. Would have been a four if not for that third story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Hans | 2/11/2014

    " The first book was barely worth 2 stars, it got worse from there. If all Hickman's books are this bad he should really consider another career, and spare the world from things that bring disgrace to the entire fantasy genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Major Doug | 1/9/2014

    " Good book: a bit hard to follow the implied interactions between the 3 worlds of magic; however, it provided a good base for the next book(s) in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by John | 11/29/2013

    " I was conflicted between giving this a 3 and a 4 star rating. I did like the book quite a bit, but it just didn't really reach out and grab me and make me want to read it. While I did finish this sooner than now when I post it, it still took me almost 2 weeks to plow through it which was disappointing in a way. It's kinda hard to explain...I think some of it was the three different storylines and that they didn't really overlap/interact with each other all that much which made it harder to read. "
