This is a review of The Riyria Revelations By the flip of the last page of the Heir of Novron , I felt like I have lost a piece of myself For weeks, I have been plowing through the books with unbridled enthusiasm I was expecting a sense of triumph upon finishing the books, instead I was hit with a legendary book hangover The world of Elan is so intoxicating, I just wanted to wallow in this realm forever Sadly, the real world beckons Char I think one paragraph is enough to get all the melodrama o [...]
4.75 5 StarsI have a principle to never DNF a book or series I truly believe that at times stories will need some time to reach its maximum potential The Riyria Revelations is a perfect example of this situation, it s a series that proved this principle of mine to be a great decision for me If I haven t stuck with this series after finishing the first omnibus which in my opinion were really weak and underwhelming, I would be missing one hell of a fantastic series It s not without some flaws but [...]

I ve been looking at my computer screen for a while, trying to find the proper words to describe Heir of Novron, but as it turns out I can t form coherent thoughts Epic Too clich Mind blowing Obviously Extraordinary Duh Magnificent Of course Outstanding Sure.I will ask you to allow me to be extravagant for once Yes I am the girl who gets overly excited with almost everything she reads, who loves 90% of the books she so proudly admires in her bookselves, but this one, it sdifferent It s sacred It [...]

How many of you have read a series and loved everything about it only to get to the last book and be completely disappointed raises hand So many times that has happened to me, especially when I ve read books back to back and I get to the end an stuff from the last book doesn t even fit in with stuff from the first book I mean it does fit if you ve had a drink or three and look at it while standing on your head trying to balance a set of plates with you feet But, not on a normal Tuesday.Well have [...]
I loved Theft Of Swords and Rise of Empire and I expected the Heir of Novron to be truly epic but it wasn tIt was something , it was something greater, it was mind blowingly good Stories like these are the reason I love fantasy I won t share any details or spoilers because I wouldn t dare to deprive you from fantastic experience of going through it yourself Some parts reminded me of The Fellowship of the Ring and I loved it because that was the book that made me fall in love with fantasy The Lor [...]

Heir of Novron is the last omnibus installment of the Riyria Revelations The volume consists of Book V, and VI, Wintertide and Percepliquis, respectively A threat looms over the world, and the new empire is only beginning Can our heroes save the day, or will they cause havoc High five myself Yes I finished a series in a short amount of time, or at least to my standards It is pretty exciting, because I usually take forever to finish a series, or never finish it Don t judge, I am working on it Ti [...]
5 A buddy read with the buddies, who joined together on a Fantasy quest to save the world, at BBB Wow Just wow I am not sure I have words I just finished this series and I am glad that despite some very painful moments, which almost led me to depression and left me with the need to step away and take a break, I stuck with it to the end This five star rating is not only for the last installment, which I found to be the strongest in its balance of prose and action, but for the feeling the series g [...]
This book, and series for that matter, are going down as one of my favorites of all time I absolutely loved it Everything that has been building up in Theft of Swords and Rise of Empire comes to a head in this final installment MJS left no stone unturned and left me completely satisfied, but still wanting Wanting you say DAMN RIGHT I could read another 900 pages of Royce, Hadrian, Arista, and the whole crew right now.This book is another omnibus of books 5 and 6 Just like the previous two book [...]
At some point detailed review might come but so far I will say WOW, just WOW.This series starts as fun little adventure with witty dialogues.In second book we get worldbuilding, characters get layers and plot thickens but it s all setting stage for what happens in this book.By far longest of the 3 it s culmination of everything that happens in previous books and I was astonished to see how some small details and side characters had impact later in story.I am also glad Sullivan didn t writer a [...]
You can find this review and at Booksprens.Wow, Heir of Novron is without a doubt one of the most emotional and rewarding re reads I ve ever had the chance to experience But most of all, it s a book that put together all the things I love about Fantasy and about reading in general Magic, legends and myths, unforgettable characters, duel scenes, chivalrous and heroic moments and emotions Lots of emotions.Just take a moment to look at the book s dedication This book is entirely dedicated to my wi [...]

When you expect nothing from the world not the light of the sun, the wet of water, nor the air to breathe everything is a wonder and every moment a gift A Full Five Stars What a journey this has been In spite of my frustrations with the beginning of this series, this story and these characters have truly won me over in the best way possible This was, without a doubt, one of the most satisfying conclusions I ve ever read If you ve been following my reviews for awhile, you ll know that I actually [...]
Full review now posted Original review can be found at Booknest.Wow I thought that Theft of Swords was fantastic, but Rise of Empire improved upon it greatly Then along comes Heir of Novron, which blew away everything that proceeded it This series started out as a fun romp of a fantasy, fairly lighthearted and and fast paced Some of my friends didn t enjoy the first book because they found it to be too shallow, both in plot and character I honestly don t think anyone could possibly feel that way [...]
Humour, tragedy, action, drama, adventure This one had it all After a patchy start in book 1 this omnibus has fully realized the development of this series into one of my all time favourites Heir of Novron featured an awesome cast of diverse, likeable characters with the protagonists from the previous books returning along with many of the great supporting characters While the plot was in many ways a typical fantasy epic it was written masterfully and the tension remained high due to Sullivan s [...]
This will be an odd review And why can we not give than 5 stars So happy I didn t have to send Michael J Sullivan hate mail because ofRoyce Just put him in my top 10 authors and that is saying a lot.This series was one of the best I have read Yes, that s what I said It has everything a reader could want and if you respect my opinions as far as books go, you will read this series and anything else Michael writes, if you have not already.Now for the review A white feather drifted downward It swir [...]
Sometimes the price of dreams is achieving them The price of reading an amazing series is finishing it and feeling lost And the reward of rereading them is feeling that you ve come home All The Stars May 2016 Buddy reread with the awesome BBB Jan 2016 audio Oh my goodness THE FEELS 5 stars just don t seem enough to convey how much I love this series and its characters Although a reread, I am again suffering from a hangover at the end of it Definitely going to be rereading this series over and ov [...]
I claim The Way of Kings, Part One and The Way of Kings Part Two as my favourite book read this year However this novel would certainly have to be up the top as another of my favourite books read in 2012 Isn t it nice to know that when the world ends in December cough I ll at least have read some great books In my reviews for Theft of Swords and Rise of Empire I mentioned the fantasy genre and storytelling in general respectively I want to do something different again and connect the two to ment [...]
Spoiler free Such a fantastic ending to what has become one of my favourite series It took me ages to get to a point where I could sit down and read this last book As usual once I started reading I couldn t stop Sullivan s writing has come on so much during this series, it keeps you reading and it really does get better with each book I m going to keep this review brief Well, I ll try to Something that surprised me was how emotional these books can be Sullivan is not afraid to give the reader a [...]
Heir of Novron is the omnibus containing Wintertide and Percepliquis, books 5 and 6 of Riyria Revelations.WintertideThis was a surprisingly short book Not that its short length stopped Wintertide being one of the best books in the series I loved this book It was fast paced and exciting from start to finish and was filled with action, humor, intrigue, and adventure Despite the fun feel to the book it was still full of plenty of dark and shocking moments Especially towards the end I loved Hadrian [...]
Excellent ending to a fine fantasy series.
I appreciate the balance Sullivan struck in the Riyria Chronicles too often books of this genre get polluted with gratuitous violence and raunchiness that merely mask a storyline that may not have been as well developed by an author before embarking on the literary journey As a reader, while I appreciate a good action scene of which the Heir of Novron, among the others, had plenty of fantastic action scenes which Tim Gerard Reynolds did great justice to in his narration , I appreciated the nuanc [...]
2016 reread verdict I have now officially decided that I will reread this series once a year due to it s excessive kickassyness Yep If too much of a good thing is bad for you, then this book is POISON As Alice Cooper meant to say I wanna read you, but I want it too much Original review What a great series Michael J Sullivan has captured the essence of fantasy and spoiled us with a well written story that ticked all the boxes and .
Still Searching for Red Herrings could be a subtitle for this last set of the series.If you ve followed the journey this far, chances are you re gonna like this last installment It s like the previous books, except faster paced and dramatic The other minor difference is there s less character development Since all the main players have already been introduced, the narrative is plot driven, which is kind of the point since we all or maybe just me by this time want to get to the end finally and [...]
Sometimes it feels like a very daunting task to judge the last two books in a six book series The temptation is to say, But look at the weight of the rest of the series And have myself say, It must be judged in context to the REST of the story That s not really necessary in this case.I ll admit something Books one and two felt kinda boilerplate and nothing that special after having read a lot of similar buddy novels with rogues as main characters The additions of the elves were only improved for [...]
The last book of the series The interactions between Hadrian and Royce are back, and so are some really interesting characters sadly absent from the previous book This book will keep you reading just one page at night up until around 5 am guilty The end of the series is almost perfect with some things which caught me completely by surprise Conclusion for the whole series if you like fantasy read these books now, they are great Some of the dialog is brilliant and the plot has enough twists and t [...]
This series is a masterpiece and the final book is the worthy culmination.
WintertideThe New Empire has the true Heir of Novron and Princess Arista They are ready to execute them at Wintertide The conclusion of the war seems inevitable as Prince Alric has been forced to flee to Drondil Fields The New Empire still has one problem, Royce and Hadrian haven t given up yet.Wintertide was quite the exciting tale For perhaps the first time in the series I was surprised at many of the outcomes The use of obvious tropes clearly lessened which led to some exemplary storytelling [...]
