Jan. 31 2012 Riyria Revelations (Book 3)
The New Empire intends to mark its victory over the Nationalists with a bloody celebration. On the high holiday of Wintertide, the Witch of Melengar will be burned and the Heir of Novron executed. On that same day the Empress faces a forced marriage, with a fatal accident soon follow. The New Empire is confident in the totality of its triumph but there's just one problem-Royce and Hadrian have finally found the true Heir of Novron---and they have their own holiday plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius Book Reviews - Novel Review Dec 11 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Format: Kindle

Rating: 9.7

Review: For the third time in a row, Sullivan’s writing has amazed me. Heir of Novron was the final two books, put into one, of the Riyria Revelations. Sullivan finished this series with a bang! What I love most about his writing is the fact that it is always so exciting or suspenseful that I never get bored. While reading his novel I could not put it down. I will not go into detail about the storyline in this review because it could spoil parts of the earlier books, but I can say that this novel was the best one yet. This series was totally worth spending the time to read, and I am excited to read more of Sullivan’s books in the future. Overall, I suggest this book to anyone who enjoyed the first two books in the series, and I suggest this series to all readers who enjoy fantasy, action and adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and heartbreaking May 28 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot remember the last time I shed this many years reading a book - and this is a good thing. Some reviewers list Sullivan's books as light hearted and fun with no depth - I disagree. The books have a quick pace, but personally that immerses me more. The characters felt real, I wanted to be their friends, or their enemies.... To console them or to shoot an arrow through their hearts. Sullivan makes characters that you love to love and love to hate!

Each character has a secret that they are trying to hide from the other characters (about who they really are and how things make them feel). This makes them feel genuine. We all have things that we hide even from our closest friends because we don't think they'll understand. Sullivan clearly understands this well.

Are you considering buying the whole set? Click buy now! I don't think you'll regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding journey, that left me in amazement. Wow. Just plain wow. Top Shelf keeper! Jan. 17 2012
By MelHay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
2 bks separated
Wintertide:
Royce and Hadrian ride into Aquesta ragged and cold from the journey. Many people are coming to Aquesta for the upcoming Wintertide Celebration, one month away. The news has spread that Modina is to be married and the Nationalist leader Degan Gaunt will be executed, all as part of the celebrations. Melengar has fallen to the Imperial Empire. With this many worries come to mind...How's Gwen? Arista? Alric? So much to happen and worry about and questions to answer.

I got a chuckle at the beginning of this book with the small group of young thieves we meet. But, by now we are all well acquainted with the characters and ready for Michael to bring them back to life for us. I was excited to be back into this world ~ its comfortable to me and I want to see where we are going with the situations the characters were left in, in Emerald Storm. Again, I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what would happen to these characters left in a little bit of a tight spot.

Michael did a great job of setting up for this book with the previous ones and using what he had available in all aspects of the world. There is nothing new pulled out of thin air or make you wonder 'where did that come from', everything we need and know have been laid out for us, but now tied together to answer questions for us. Many of the smaller unknowns and lose ends are tied up here, within a captivating story in which Michael brings all the characters together and to demise, good or bad.

Percepliquis:
Men are fighting for their kingdom and homes against attackers we have feared would come. Arista's having horrible nightmares, Royce is depressed after the ending in Wintertide, and Hadrian feels guilt. The kingdoms are coming together under the ruling heir, Modina, as predicted, but without the horn it might all be destroyed. Our friends through the series have one last quest, that could be the death of them but with out it they will die anyway, they all want or need to go on, for different reasons but for the same result, to save man kind.

Screaming from the rooftops, MASTERFUL! This is THE way to end a magnificent fantasy series.

Michael weaves all the books together into this one, pulling pieces together and setting the world; past, present and future, in clear view for us. Just amazing the way Michael took two plain and simple thieves, to create an outstanding series and amazing ending.

This one book holds all the missing pieces we didn't realize we were missing, yet piecing all the secreted comments throughout the series together to complete everything. Michael has taken a series to all different levels through out this series, and this book is a fabulous ending to it all!

I laughed and cried and worried. Both for happiness and sadness, of many reasons -- the characters and their hardships and humor. I have to say I LOVED this book, such a perfect ending. I can't describe how well the ending fit for me, all the way to the last sentence. I don't think I can write a review that will give this book it's well deserved justice, or even the series itself. I am just floored with it all; the story, the characters, the depth of the world completed. All of it completed. And an action packed finale.

I was afraid the team wouldn't have their spark, but they had it. Oh they had it. Seeing the characters grow and live through emotions is what makes the book the best, digging deep in us to care. All the characters have their numerous shining moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Conclusion! Jan. 31 2012
By rwbaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This series took me by surprise. I picked up "The Crown Conspiracy" because I have exhausted all the big names in the genre and saw it one day on an Amazon search for another book. I expected it to be in the third tier of fantasy fiction, however I was completely wrong. I was mesmerized by Hadrian and Royce from the first chapter until the last of the series. I can offer no real criticisms besides a few typos in my kindle version. The character development was a breath of fresh air. After reading authors who spend page upon page describing scenery and trying for intricate character development the witty dialogue and intricate plot gripped me. The story is filled with amazing characters both good and bad. I would suggest these books for anyone who loves fantasy fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of an epic tale Feb. 26 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This review is really about the series as a whole because, quite frankly, I could not imagine loving a series more than I did with the Riyria Chronicles. I devoured all three (6) books in less than a month and as I mentioned in the review of Theft of Swords, it has reawakened a love of fantasy literature that I had long forgotten.

Perhaps because the author chose to write the entire series before publishing the first book, the cohesiveness of the story was just amazing. Everything fit together perfectly and in great detail. No story lines were left dangling, no twist or turn seemed out of place, and everything was well thought out and fit perfectly within the overall story. There are tons of little hints and foreshadows throughout the books.... some of which lead to obvious events or revelations about characters, and some still manage to catch you completely off guard. All the elements of an epic tale are here, action, corruption, deception and conspiracy, personal redemption, and shocking revelations. And they are all woven so intricately and precisely that it isn't until the end that you really see the masterpiece as a whole and can admire it's beauty. And it truly is. I have not enjoyed any books as much as these in many years and now that it's over it's actually a bit sad to see the tales of Royce, Hadrian, and all of the rest of the characters that devoured my free time these last few weeks end.

But I look forward to more from the author, and perhaps there will be a return to Riyria in the future which would be great to see.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Heir of Novron: An unexpected impressive end. Feb. 11 2012
By J. Perez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Heir of Novron details the final Omnibus in the series Riyria Revelations.

Just like the previous books, coincidences abound, and yet somehow the story is involving enough to cause the reader to gloss them over. Sullivan does something very hard in any series: he wraps a lot of threads up together, and quite nicely if I might add.

The reader can also expect a certain degree of surprises in store for them. There are certainly a lot of secrets that are revealed in this volume, so many that I don't think anyone will be able to fully guess them all. I guessed a ton of them, and I was STILL surprised at some of the revelations. That surprise is a really good feeling to a very old fantasy reader like myself.

Initially I thought Sullivan was going to begin the old thing he has been repeating in the previous books: lack luster heroes, repetitive imprisonment, "hand of the author", etc (If you don't know what I mean by that, look up my previous review on Rise of Empire, way too long to define them again). I still felt the "hand of the author" in the story, but if you've come this far, you learn to live with it or stop reading. What I was pleasantly surprised to see was that the heroes of the story finally came into their own.

There are characters, deceased and not, who's line between good and evil becomes blurred. Though the main characters remain in their primary roles and their character development is minimal ... well even nonexistent, secondary characters continued to evolve and change. Magnus evolved, rather abruptly, but he did. Arista came into her own. Alric was particularly interesting to read about with the style of both royalty and insecurity. Arcadius ... I can't find words to express Arcadius without revealing too much, so I leave you to discover him.

In conclusion, a fine entertaining read that takes time to grab you, but does so. 4 solid stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT end to a FANTASTIC series! Jan. 31 2012
By RachelOleo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I felt so sad to put it back on the shelf! The first tow I ordered on a whim, and I couldn't put them down! The character development is slow at the beginning of the series, but stick with it! You won't be disappointed!

While I would not put this on the level of McCaffrey or Martin, they were still very good and I wish they weren't over.

BUT, if you don't like the surprises to be hinted at, you may not enjoy this. Mr. Sullivan drops subtle and not so subtle hints about what will happen; if you would rather be told what happens rather than figure it out on your own, bear that in mind before reading.

Overall, wonderful!
