Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Wonderful Trilogy"

    This review covers both Rise of Empire and Heir of Novron, the second and third books in the Theft of Swards trilogy. Any series of books that can hold my attention for 70+ hours and leave me wanting more is a winner. On top of discovering one of my new favorite narrators, I found the books amusing, swashbuckling, and a romp of a fantasy.

    The author is not afraid to left Royce, Hadrian and Arista experience both victory and pain. Recurrent characters pop up throughout the trilogy and add continuity and bind the stories together. Originally written as six stand alone books, the trilogy is wisely packaged in three volumes. The main characters and their joint and individual stories are well developed. I felt I knew them and I missed them when it was over.

    I am giving the story only four out of five stars because the author leaves subtle but essential clues throughout the books that are hard to remember after such a long narration. He is a bit too clever for his own good at times. When listening, remember, nothing is irrelevant. I was confused by the ending of Heir of Novron. Luckily, I had purchased both the audio and Kindle version and I was able to do a search of the Kindle text to find the answer. It annoyed me I had to resort to looking back.

    I had a couple other quibbles with the excessive details in Rise of Empire about every type of mast or sail on a ship and how to operate it in various types of weather. As a reader, I wanted to story to move on and it almost sank. The search for the lost city was puzzling when it turned out that many people knew where it was.

    Those quibbles aside, I highly recommend the Theft of Swords trilogy. It is so much better than others series I have tried, such as The Elvenbane (uneven and disjointed) and The Kingkiller Chronicles (so boring I returned the first book and won't revisit).

    "Outstanding story!"

    The chemistry between Royce and Adrienne the two main characters in this story is amazing. It's the kind of friendship I think we all seek, to be accepted as we are. To have that friend that can help you when you go astray, that friend that can be there with you when your heart is broke and that friend that is with you to celebrate the best times of your life.

    "One of the Best Trilogies EVER"

    I don't reviews often, but it seems as if we are in an age of incredible talent in the fantasy and science fiction genres. After reading Way of Kings, Red Rising, etc. I am just overwhelmed what gems my lie hidden from me. Many think of the past when regarding the classics of the genre, but in the future books like these, including Theft of Swords, will be held up as a highpoint in literature. It amazes me how these books craft perennial wisdom into entertaining tales with ease.

    This book, in particular, had me so nervous about what would happen, as even great books can have moments that leave one with a bittersweet feeling. Here is a tale told so well, with such a rich tapestry of storytelling genius, that I am left a changed person. What greater comp!moment can I give them to explain this book made me escape into pleasure, and never left go, but did do by ringing all the beautiful chords of eternal truths. Unlike some other fate, this book has little that is dark, sadistic, or haphazard. It will be one of he great fantasy trilogies of the genre not just for our time, but all time. Even now I wonder what is do powerful about these archetypes that they resonate with us today.

    If you want to learn about the human heart, and get lost in a tale promised to deliver genius up until the end, then read this book and it's two prior books. You will be glad you did. Truly a profound and yet hopefully book.

    "Loved it! Enjoyable characters and great story"

    I'm always excited when a new continuation of a good story comes along. This book was no exception. Just as entertaining as the previous books in this series. The story has been wonderful to follow. The characters are relatable even though they're fantasy. I was drawn in immediately and became very invested in them. I wanted the book to go on forever. It's always like saying goodbye to an old friend when it ends.

    Thank you Michael J Sullivan for another engrossing and delightful tale.

    Now it's time to listen to the prequels! Narrator was excellent. I only wish each book was longer. I am looking forward to more.
