    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Theft of Swords to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't reviewed many books. I felt I needed to with this particular book. The story was excellent. Some parts dragged a little bit, but Tim Gerard Reynolds's narration was one of the best that I have ever heard.
    Too me, the narration is just as important as the story. After all... it is an audio book. Most of the fantasy narrators are over the top. Reynolds was spot on. Great work.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    What disappointed you about Angels and Demons?

    The narration was absolutely aweful.


    What other book might you compare Angels and Demons to and why?

    The story was great. I just couldn't listen to the narrator pronounce Hashashin anymore. It was terrible.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Re-record the book with Paul Michael.

    Michael J. Sullivan garnered critical raves and a massive readership for his Riyria Revelations series. The first book in his highly anticipated Riyria Chronicles series of prequels, The Crown Tower brings together warrior Hadrian Blackwater with thieving assassin Royce Melborn. The two form a less-than-friendly pairing, but the quest before them has a rare prize indeed, and if they can breach the supposedly impregnable walls of the Crown Tower, their names will be legend.

    I don't review too many audio books. I stumbled across Theft of Swords about a year ago. I listened to the trilogy of books and when they were over, I found myself missing them. So I loaded the first book up on my iPod and started again. Four times through the series, I found that The Crown Tower was available.

    The writing and narration are terrific. I hope that Mr. Sullivan will keep the series going. You have a lifelong fan.

    Thank you very much.

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    Where does Heir of Novron rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to audiobooks while at the gym, running, shopping and while doing yard work. There are few books that I can listen to over and over again. As soon as this book finished, I started the whole series over and I liked it better the second time. It has everything you would want in a great book series. Tim Gerard Reynolds is an excellent story teller and I couldn't recommend this book enough.

    I wish HBO or Showtime would pick this up and make it into a series.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story and interaction were not up to par. The premise was interesting, but the story was not able to hold my attention. It just dragged on. Wouldn't recommend. As usual, Paul Michael did a great job.
