Publisher's Summary

Part supernatural spy adventure, part historical romp, The League of Set is the beginning of a new fast-paced GraphicAudio Original series in the ancient world.  

Samuel ben Yohanan is a secret agent for the Judean Court in Exile in Babylon. A master of magical relics and ancient gadgetry, he’ll do anything to get his people home (and perhaps to advance his personal ambitions as well). But after he goes rogue to help Cyrus the Great conquer Babylon, the Persians send the reluctant Samuel on a covert mission to Egypt in anticipation of their next invasion.  

With Samuel as his partner and Persian minder is Mehrnaz of the Flame, one of the leading magi in King Cyrus’s court. A perceptive and powerful practitioner of magic, she distrusts Samuel from the start. But they must quickly learn to overcome their mutual hostility if they are to survive.  

Samuel and Mehrnaz maneuver together through the intrigues of the court of Amasis II, one of Egypt’s last great pharaohs. They solve mythological and occult mysteries while trying to avoid sudden death at the hands of their hidden enemies. Finally, the two agents will battle the magician-assassins of an ancient evil organization in their necropolis stronghold to save both of their peoples from destruction.  

Performed by Richard Rohan, Lynette Rathnam, Andy Brownstein, Brandon Burton, Holly Adams, Peter Holdway, Dawn Ursula, Zeke Alton, Christopher Graybill, Marni Penning, Jeff Baker, and Niusha Nawab, Ken Jackson, Duyen Washington, Wyn Delano, Jefferson Russell, Joel David Santner, Lilly Beacon, Thomas Penny, KenYatta Rogers, Darius Johnson, and Elliot Dash.

A captivating ancient Egypt, Bond-esque book!


From the opening scenes of Agent of Exiles: The League of Set, Tom Doyle’s writing drew me in. He masterfully reveals the different strengths and vulnerabilities of the main characters, Samuel ben Yohanan and his partner in espionage Mehrnaz of the Flame. The scenes in ancient Egypt glow. I love audiobooks—primarily for their ability to transport you through time and space, and drop you smack dab in the middle of another world. This first audiobook is chock full of action. It’s the most captivating book I have listened to since the beginning of the pandemic, and I’m impatiently waiting for the next one in the series. Tom does an exquisite job weaving the interconnections of ancient history, and I enjoyed the journey. It’s clear that Doyle has done intensive research. He summons up concrete factual historical events and blends them with his own mystical mastery of storytelling, and the result is a flourishing display of writing talent. The audiobook fully engaged me in the characters’ human struggle and contradictions and entertained me with intrigue and skillful fight scenes. It’s both a heroic quest to save two cultures from annihilation and a humorous and cozy bedtime read. A must-add to your holiday gift-giving list for self and others!
