THEY KILLED THE KING. THEY PINNED IT ON TWO MEN. THEY CHOSE POORLY.
Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles--until they are hired to pilfer a famed sword. What appears to be just a simple job finds them framed for the murder of the king and trapped in a conspiracy that uncovers a plot far greater than the mere overthrow of a tiny kingdom.

Can a self-serving thief and an idealistic swordsman survive long enough to unravel the first part of an ancient mystery that has toppled kings and destroyed empires in order to keep a secret too terrible for the world to know? 

And so begins the first tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.
When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first books of his Riyria Revelations, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere.

New Favorite Book | 2014-03-26 04:03:06
This is my family's new favorite book series!! Most important for me is the SMART humor. I love characters with a quick wit! I also love when two or more characters have a special bond and would die for each other without even knowing it. It also grabs your from the FIRST PAGE! You don't force yourself through half the book just to get to something interesting. It is all over the place! Great, Smart books! I am listening to them again with my husband. :)

I love Michael J. Sullivan's writing style and cleverness he puts in his characters. I have read all of his books. I am always excited when new books are released and I usually buy both the audiobook read by Tim Gerad-Reynolds and the kindle books. The Ryiria series is light-hearted fantasy series with characters who become friends and adventures you can lose yourself in. Part of the allure is because of the character development and witty banter that draws you into the story as it carries you along with them. I started reading the newly released kindle book Age of Myth plus listened to the new Audiobook (Tim Gerad-Reynolds is excellent) the cleverness and humor continues to amaze and entertain me. I truly am a fan of Michael J. Sullivan who is a wonderful and talented writer.
