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.

I am absolutely in love with with Royce & Hadrian, I love each one more than the other. I don't know what that says about me as they're theives, murderers & scoundrels. ...but they do have a good side.
I have read the entire series, and it is one of the best fantasy series out there. The books are grounded as they provide a base that we can relate to in modern life. They are not so far out there in Melengar that I can't relate the events to the western Hemisphere.
I have read many fantasy series, and this one I could not predict several of the story lines, and that says alot for the writing. There is a particular hair raising moment when our P.O.Vs are trapped and there is no way out - the setup is great and the tension palpable, I loved it. Or when the epic battle takes place, I felt like getting a bag of popcorn and curling up under a blanket, I could see the imagery so clearly in my mind.
The series reminds me a little of the "First Law" trilogy, but without the foul language. The character are flawed, but it is okay.
Loved the 2 main characters
Very similar to the Lies of Locke Lamora
Just buy it!
Well thought out, loved how the series ended and what became of the characters. Look forward to more by this author and narrator.
Nimbus and I can't say because it will give away the ending.
Both, I laughed at Royce and Hadrian's antics and cried when characters died.
Keep them coming!
When I was done with this series, I started to miss the freinds we had made and the journey I went on with them. One of the best series i can remember reading.
This series gives me a good feeling as if I am hanging out with the main characters, to some extent involved in their experiences. I like their respective senses of value, and the dimension their differences give to their relationship.
Of course I like both Hadrian and Royce. Usually I like Hadrian a bit better since I identify with his values, but sometimes I, like Royce, find him a bit annoying. This does not bother me like it does in books where I do not like the characters. It's like it is with a friend.
He IS the characters. He brings in feeling without being excessive, and he often emphasizes something in a different way than I might read it myself, which brings depth and perspective.
I enjoyed joining the characters in their reality, and will miss them. I also appreciate the balance between difficulties and positive experiences.
I fell in love with the characters and now that I've finished the book and now I am sad that it's over. The story was unpredictable and made me think about my life. Well done.
loved it. fascinating detailed story of intriguing, heroes, and villains. these stories or this series of books will have you experience the full gambit of emotions as the characters get themselves in and out of every situation thought possible and some you didn't think possible. fully recommend.
it is definitely worth listening to.. narrator is really good, plenty of "wtf" moments and people cutting onions
