Yes its clean. The right amount of fantasy speaking for myself
Myron Hadrian Royce
Yes battle when Royce and Hadrian found out who was the true heir
Having finally finished the series I can now give my opinion of all three. Upon the completion of Book 1; a finely woven story and plot set up combined with a superb narration. I was then compelled to move to Book 2; once again a finely woven tale and the narration did not falter from Book 1. Now completely hooked, I had to do Book 3. There was no let down on performance or story, in fact Mr. Sullivan slipped a unique ending to the series. I strongly recommend the whole series, and once stated hang on because it will be a fun ride.
For sure!! There wasn't a dull moment in the book... in either of the 3 in this series, actually. The characters are great, the narrator is great, the ending is great...
When we found out who the real heir was... I kind of had guessed it, but it was exciting to hear it.
I have a few... When the group is trying to get past the gilarabryn in the tomb... and when Hadrian is fighting to save Royce from the elves.
This is now my number one audio series. A close second would be Fiona McIntosh's series in audio. But this one takes the cake. It brings everything together perfectly at the end. I laughed, I cried and I got very depressed when it was over!!! :)
Riyria has taken the number spot on my list of favorite fantasies. Not only was this an amazing story with loveable characters but the narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds was spectacular. I purchased the first installment of this series based on a recommendation from Audible. I am so glad that I did! I was hooked after listening to the first chapter and I immediately purchased the the kindle version of all three books so I could read when I wasn't able to listen. This story has consumed every moment of my spare time for the last 3 months. I was actually sad that I had made it to the end of the story!
I enjoyed listening to this book a lot. Tim G Reynolds did such a great job portraying the characters in this series.
I loved it all.
I've never listened to any of Reynold's performances before, but I do plan on listening to more of his work.
This book was very funny at times. Haidrian and Royce were very good together. I would love it if this was made into a movie. There were times that I wanted to cry, too.
i didn't have the pleasure of reading the printed version.
when the author revealed the true heir of Novron. i honestly didn't see it coming, but was happy with who it was.
his pacing and ability to change between characters. his vocal range is perfect for a story like this.
when Royce met his daughter for the first time. I'm a former marine, and had a tear on my cheek.
easily the best series i have ever listened to. Micheal J. Sullivan has become one of most favorite authors. great job and well done!
The best part of this particular volume is how it gathers and finishes all the storylines, large and small, that have been developed since the start. I didn't feel like anything important had been overlooked or forgotten. It's a deeply satisfying finale to a wonderful series.
It would be impossible to name just one, there are many fun and interesting characters you'll find yourself getting attached to.
Mr. Reynolds brings off some pitch-perfect voices for a diverse cast, so many distinctive and fitting characterizations that never waver or get muddled from one volume to the next, and help bring them all to life.
This volume, taken together with the first two, creates one long, cohesive story that follows a great collection of characters through several years and sweeping changes, From daring heists and harrowing escapes to high magic and the high seas, Riyria Revelations never lacks for adventure, but also never neglects character and story. This whole series is worth every minute invested in listening to it, and with two books in each of the three volumes, your credits are well spent.
This series is some of the most enthralling fantasy I've come across in recent years. The tale of Hadrian and Royce is well written, exciting, charming and appropriately epic.
The author has suceeded in making a world that you want to visit, and stay in. This series really deserves more publicity than it has gotten, and I thoroughly recommend the books to anyone.
I was not disappointed by this last book in the series. After finishing the series and thinking about it, I do think that the author relies a bit too much on deus ex machina, although he couches it in the idea of some kind of weighting of the cosmic dice--certain outcomes WANT to happen. The characters seem a bit oblivious about obvious conclusions as well, mostly as a plot device. Lastly, there were some threads that were dropped that seemed to be launching points for major plot movements, for instance the "experiment" discussed by Degan Gaunt and the older Wizard before the fall of the Old Empire.
However, these are picayune distractions from an otherwise excellent work of fiction and conclusion of a series. I have not enjoyed a series of books this much for ages. While WANTING more, I never had the feeling that I NEEDED more--that there were fundamental questions left unanswered.
Kudos to Michael Sullivan and Gerard Reynolds on an audio masterpiece.
