    Best-selling author Michael J. Sullivan’s mesmerizing Riyria Revelations series has found a welcome home with fans of magic, clashing swords, and daring heroes. This second volume finds Royce and Hadrian on a quest to enlist the southern Nationalists to aid the ever-weakening kingdom of Melengar. Royce suspects an ancient wizard is manipulating them all, but to find the truth he’ll have to decipher Hadrian’s past—a past Hadrian wants to keep secret.

    What did you love best about Rise of Empire?

    This is my favorite new series. It has great characters the story is fast moving and has the depth that I look for. Truly a great read. I have recommended it to all my family and friends.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Royce was my favorite character because his dry humor reminded me of my father.


    Which character – as performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds – was your favorite?

    He is a great performer. I think he really gets a great feel for the characters before he even starts his work. I don't believe that I could honestly choose.

    Samantha Sweet breaks into houses for a living - all perfectly legal as a caretaker for the USDA. But her real dream is to open her own pastry shop, 'Sweet's Sweets.' Life is a little crazy for Sam right now. At one of her break-in properties, a dying woman insists that she take a small wooden box. Sam doesn't realize that the old woman was known locally as a 'bruja,' a witch, until she begins to feel some strange effects from the box.

    Captain Skurvy says: "A Pinch of Romance,Mystery & Paranormal"
    "Fun book, narrator OK but has no Spanish skills."

    Where does Sweet Masterpiece rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This mystery was pretty good and the characters were fun. The narrator was good with the exception of her Spanish. She needs to take a basic course on pronunciation. If you are not a Spanish speaker it will probably not bother you.

    Story
    Would you listen to Peter and the Starcatchers again? Why?

    I listened to this with my grandchildren and we all loved it. I thought that it would be a very typical youth book "starring" Peter Pan. Wrong! it was delightful and not only enjoyed by my pre teen and teenage grandchildren but also by myself. Jim Dale did a marvelous job on the voices and really brought the work to life. I am sure I will be listening again and again to this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peter, George and of course the "Bird Woman"


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Humor, depth and great voices that I could not even think up in my head. Superb!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Wouldn't want to spoil it for the rest of the listeners.


    Any additional comments?

    I will keep this in my library for myself and all of my family members. It would make a great gift too.

    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.

    Great performance, twists and turns keep you reading. I have read this series twice and listened to it twice. I love this series. The characters are believable and have enough personality and depth to keep you not only entertained but connected. Well worth your credits or cash.
