A rising star in the fantasy genre, Michael J. Sullivan has built an ardent following for his Riyria Revelations saga, which draws to its epic conclusion in Heir of Novron.
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.
Heir of Novron contains Wintertide and Percepliquis, books 5 and 6 of Riyria Revelations.

Apples and oranges.
I liked them all in the end.
The very last. It should have been predictable, but wasn't.
You'll have to cast me in it first!
A touch of Ambercrombie. A touch of Sanderson. A touch of Salvatore. A touch of Feist.
The whole series was excellent but this was my very favorite of the three!
I already have, and will do so again. I can see this being on my once-a-year list
The entire package. The characters, the plot, the surprises, the humor, the pace of the story - all were excellent. My husband and both my brothers all have loved this series and we are all missing it..
His performance was solid, generally stayed with the correct voice for the character. He brought emotion when needed, and his timing for the humor was spot on.
Yes and yes. Laughed, cried, thought about it when I wasn't reading it, tried to figure out plot.
Highly recommend. Its an extremely enjoyable series.
I love to read. I also love to write.I'm a harsh critic and very, very, very rarely give five star reviews to anything. Three stars for me is an average representation of literature and not a bad review by any stretch.
The fact that the story continued on without any surprises or unbelievable twists that disrupted what had been previously told in the story.
The most memorable moments are when the heroes are facing off agains the gilarabryn while trying to recover the horn and the final battle duel for control of the human and elven realms
I think Heir of Novron is a fitting conclusion to one of the best fantasy trilogies I have read in a long time. Yes, I still think there were too many different characters used for POV. Yes, I don't think that the "twists" were well disguised and were very predictable. But the fact that it is just a good story over comes these faults.This story is very classical for the genre. I think will be liked by anyone who has a taste for epic high fantasy stories that are fun with lots of action and intrigue.
All I can say is that I will miss these two guys. The series wraps up nicely. If you liked the first two books this one is a no brainer
Exciting satisfying listen
Iliked the retrival of the horn and the fight between Hardian and the elves
He made the characters very interesting. He had a great voice and was consistent throught the 3 books. I knew who was talking without being told.
One of the things I like about this series, it provides great adventure with a lot of humor. There were definielty sad parts, since some of the ones who died were not evil (or at least not all evil).
This is one of the best epic fantasy series I have listended to. Each book is a story in its own right, but I loved the way everything came together at the end, especially the aspect of Nimbus (which for some reason I did not see coming).
I've been in love with this series since the first book, and I am so happy that the ending didn't disappoint. Of course, most listeners will have figured out a lot of what will happen, but there are enough surprises to keep you from getting bored!
Sullivan's writing is pretty straightforward, and he doesn't waste a lot of time on pretty prose or description, but the story gallops along with verve and enthusiasm. The whole series is just plain fun. We get conspiracies, betrayals, love, sword fights, adventure on the high seas, elves, goblins, assassins, thieves, war, royalists vs imperialists vs nationalists, friendship, impending doom and redemption. Who could want more than that?
I live for medieval action and mystery and this book certainly delivers but just as excelllent is the thought, humor and character interaction. Everyone has a reason for being who they are and doing what they do as the series of books peel through the layers of time and circumstance to reveal and reward the listener with a thoughtful epic of swordplay, magic and camaraderieship. It can be compared to Lord of the Rings in some respects with it's knights, wizards, priests, royalty and history of elves, dwarves and goblins though stands on its own merit and originality. I missed many an evening watching TV preferring instead to listen to the next chapter, then next chapter again of this wonderful series.
I would compare this series to books by other authors such as Patrick Rothfuss, George R.R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson and Scott Lynch.
I listen to books all day long. The books I love have great characters. If I give a book 4 or 5 stars, it's worth a listen.
I love these books.
He was great..
These books are so good....that I'm not looking forward to listening to anything on my wish list..there's no way another book could be as good. If you look at my library.. and like the types of books I've listened to.. you will love these books.
