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 loved listening to the story unfold. This was an enjoyable series and the narration was top notch. On to the prequels since I can't get enough of Royce and Hadrian!
I absolutely loved this series. I hate to see it end. Yes, the series if LONG, but it is well worth every minute. One of the best series I have read in a while. Michael Sullivan did a great job in making his characters real and believable, even though you know they are pure fantasy. I don’t give too many 5 star ratings, but this series deserved them.
Toss up between Royce and Hadrian
He delivers the story and the characters well
no sure, but love to see this series made to film
take a chance on the series
I couldn't put it down. I loved it and think i even developed a crush on the main character. Which i've never done with any other character in any other book. I've now read everything that Michael J Sullivan has done.
This was a marvelous story, so enthralling with the talent of the narrator that I found myself putting aside tasks and just sitting to listen for "just one more chapter". I could recognize each and every character by the narrators voices. It was all wonderful and I didn't want it to end. I wanted to follow Hadrion and Royce on each and every adventure.
I listen to a books while riding my bike, driving, running or working around the house. Keep your mind active.
I have no doubt that I will listen to this series again someday. It was that good. The final book in the trilogy is by far my favorite. It is very well written and has a really gripping and entertaining story-line with twists, turns and surprises. As with all the books about Riyria, Michael J. Sullivan has masterfully blended humor, sadness and excitement. What a wonderful culmination to a fantastic series. I had never listened to anything narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds before the Riyria books but I really enjoyed his style. Tim keeps you interested throughout the long story. I look forward to other books narrated by him. For those of you who's only visibility into Riyria has been the Revelations Trilogy, there are prequels to the trilogy that are very enjoyable and you get more time to spend with characters that it is hard to not see as old friends. Highly recommended for Fantasy or SciFi fans and well worth the credit.
The plot is ridiculous and the prose is pretentious. Could have told the story in one book.The entire second book is a big red herring.
Not a Sword and Sorcery Fantasy
He over dramatizes everything. That would be fine if the book were dramatic, but this just makes the contrived plot less believable.
The entire second book. The first half of the 3rd book.
The first book, engaged me because it was not serious and the characters were fun. Then the author began to take himself seriously and the whole story got out of hand. This would be better to read, because the reader can skip long passages.
I thought this book and the whole series has a great tone. There are quite a few plot twists that you might not expect, but the story is engaging and quite a bit happens in the final book. The ending is somewhat cheesy, but you cannot hold it against the author. I was very glad to end the series with these characters that I thoroughly enjoyed. I could have done with a more developed denouemont to give some better closure, but I can't expect everyone to end a series like Paolini did with Inheritance cycle. If you like fantasy novels that are entertaining, not overly dark and dramatic/ does not throw you into confusing situations right off the bat, this is a book and series for you. I always like to include the books that I like so you get a feel for my taste. I have read and enjoyed Harry Potter, Inheritance cycle (Eragon), The Name of the Wind, WOT. Was not a fan of the Malazan Series
While not my favorite, It is fun and enjoyable story. Just finished the series and found it a perfect filler while waiting for the next installments of my fantasy favorites (WoT final and Rainwilds). Even though "somewhat" predictable ... this was a fun and interesting story,very likable characters and quite well read. If you like WoT, Mistborn and the world of the Rainwilds you will enjoy this trilogy.
Have 300 other books in different accounts.
Great ideas, but drags on too long and could have left a good bit out.
