    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.

    Once, dragons ruled the Rain Wilds, tended by privileged human servants known as Elderlings. But a series of cataclysmic eruptions nearly drove these magnificent creatures to extinction. Born weak and deformed, the last of their kind had one hope for survival: to return to their ancient city of Kelsingra. Accompanied by a disparate crew of untested young keepers, the dragons embarked on a harsh journey into the unknown along the toxic Rain Wild River.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very disappointed with the ending. I was listening to the book, really enjoying it and it ended right in the middle. There are characters that you're left wondering what happened to them. I wish the author would write another book to properly end the series!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    The narrator did a good job.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would go see it only if the author would finish the series and sum up what happened to each character in the book.

    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 other book might you compare Rise of Empire to and why?

    I am a huge Harry Potter fan, but Riyria Revelations Series jumped into 1st place with me.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see this made into a movie!!!

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Heir of Novron the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed listening to this book a lot. Tim G Reynolds did such a great job portraying the characters in this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved it all.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Gerard Reynolds’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've never listened to any of Reynold's performances before, but I do plan on listening to more of his work.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.
