Born to the Blade


Two young bladecrafters, eager to serve their respective countries, vie for power and survival in a treacherous floating world on the brink of war. Oda no Michiko and Kris Denn have youth, talent, and ambition, but as for glory? Not quite yet. However, when a rebellion leader known as the Golden Lord is beheaded, these warriors-in-training will do everything possible to ensure that riots don’t lead to more bloodshed. To save the nations of the sky, they will partake in dangerous political schemes, cling to fragile alliances, and own their destiny. Born to the Blade is a Realm production, created by Michael R. Underwood and written by Michael R. Underwood, Marie Brennan, Cassandra Khaw, and Malka Older. Listen away. For more shows like this, visit

  • Excellent story telling but…

    While the story is very entertaining and attention grabbing it is hard to follow at time due to some of the names of characters and homelands being hard to distinguish from one another. While some of the characters names you identify right away Chris JoJo or Levina others I really had to stop and think to figure out who was speaking.
