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.

This has been a wonderful fantasy series. But like all good things it must come to an end. This was one of those series that drew you in and became more captivating the more you read. Micheal J. Sullivan did a great job. I will defiantly keep an eye out for more books by this author.
This book and in fact the entire series is filled with good and great moments. The ending was one of the most enjoyable, memorable, and satisfying endings I have read.
He did an excellent job of using voices that made it easy to quickly identify which character was speaking.
Smiled a smile of satisfaction in the end.
I really loved all three books. The writer did a GREAT job at keeping the story interesting at every turn. He also did a great job wrapping up the story in the end.
This was my first experience with this author, but not my last.
Great writing + great voice = hours of satisfying listening.
I am rarely surprised by endings to books, and hardly ever in a good way. You can guess all you want you will NEVER guess the ending. And yes it is better than any you could come up with-ever!
The amount of time spent laughing while the party was in tense situations.
All of the main ones. The voices he gives to the characters, I imagine would be the same ones I would have given them in my head while reading them.
Listened to over 15 SERIES so far and by far this was my favorite!
When I saw this was released just the other day, I had to burn one of my credits. The series is great. Humor, action and a well developed story.
Royce is my favorite. The duality of man (Elf) and how the character transforms by degrees.
Laugh and I enjoyed every minute of the series.
The gambit of emotions touched sadness, humor, and joy with every book in the series. What a wonderful ending for a great series. I didn't want it to end.
The relationship and hardships endured by both Royce and Adrian.
He captivated my attention with every sentence. Many audio books make you have to go back and recap. Not this one. He did an excellent job.
It was well done and yes, I shed a few tears of sadness and joy
best audio book since the Wheel of Time series.
This book is the best in the series. It has everything one could look for in epic fantasy. It has shades of LOTR (Remember, you shall not pass!). ASOIAF for the back stabbing / political intrigue and share number of characters getting chopped off. One of the last battles reminded me of a combat from 'First Law Series'. These are pretty big names and this book has elements from all these books in it.
This book had me hooked from the start, and it is one of those book which will entice you to take the long route home hoping for more traffic. Humor made me laugh, depth of characters made me feel for their sorrow and triumphs and felt that this book will give reader an emotional ride while telling a story spanning thousands of years. There are some surprises in the book for good measure. Use of language is great, it flows beautifully and very enjoyable.
Tim Gerad Reynolds narrates like a grandfather telling a story to children, and does it so effectively. I thoroughly enjoyed the narration, and I hope to listen to more books from the narrator.
I had a great time listening to this book, and I highly recommend this book.
This series turned out to be a worthy investment - three lengthy listens, never got drawn-out, mystery, action, great payoffs to conflicts, characters that started to feel like old friends, and all woven by an apt narrator. Highly recommended.
Volume 3 of the Riyria Revelations contains the final two books of the series, book #5 Wintertide and book #6 Percepliquis. Michael J. Sullivan and Tim Gerard Reynolds reunite to bring all of the main characters back for a final crescendo. Unlike Volume 2 which leaves the listener hanging, Volume 3 ties every thing up nicely.
If you have enjoyed the first two volumes of this series then you are in for a treat as Percepliquis is definitely the best book of the entire series. Not only is it the most entertaining but Sullivan also goes the extra mile to bring all of the threads together. He masterfully weaves a complex tale full of suspense with big reveals and satisfying ends to the many character storylines. Royce and Hadrian are at their best here and I found myself laughing aloud many times.
Stop wasting time reading reviews and spend that credit. You will not be disappointed.
This mountain of books isn't going to listen to itself.
Yes. This is just a great story. It was written well, funny at times with a feel good ending.
I am not one to compare books. Each one seems very unique to me. Even if its the whole swords wizards and princess plot.
Tim Reynolds has a very unique way of doing female voices. I do not think I could have done them better in my head. I mention the female voices because, I read about other reviewers complaining about other narrators and there version of female voices. So I am giving Tim his due. Over all I will be looking out for other books that Tim Narrates.
I guess I was sad to see that the Trilogy ended. When you have a good book you really never want it to end. I do have to say the ended was fantastic. (all bases covered)
This Series is worth your time and money. Do not skip this one.
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.
"An amazing story"
The Ryria Revelations series in general is a rather strong series and the final book in the duality audiobook "Heir of Novron" is by far the best. Among movies you can often find depictions based on the excitement level defined by time, usually peeking around the point of no return.
Where some of my other favorite series typically gave higher highs, but also lower lows the final books ride on an overall high level albeit with fewer peaks, but very few low points.
The series is highly rated, and amongst books ive read/heard i would put the final book in my top 10
There wont be any spoilers in this text and i am being deliberately vague
Though the primary plot point throughout the series can be reasoned by most sooner or later in the series, the final book still manages to throw curve balls that not only fit, but are immensely satisfying when discovered. For me personally swinging from suspected guesses to things i newer even considered.
The development and interaction between the characters grow and are also very good.
Myron also deserves his own special mention as his character is fantastic.
Tim Gerard does an excellent job through the entire series.
I can listen to this book over and over. excellent characters and a wonderful storyline
Really enjoyed the Riyria series. Excellent characters, well realised and a barnstorming, wide ranging and emotionally deep story.
Loved this series, performance was excellent. Fell in love with the characters and loved the twists and turns particularly in the final book.
"What a series!!!"
I have enjoyed every book in this series. I couldn't wait to get the next downloaded after finishing the previous one.
The characters are full and well rounded. Imagery is so powerful you can feel yourself slipping on ice or laughing at characters mishaps as it becomes like a video playing in you head.
Sullivan is amid my favourite authors for books that are hard to put down, And Tim Reynolds is a great narrator
"Best book in a fantastic series"
The book cleverly wove all the outstanding issues together. I loved the series. And am now looking for more books by this author.
Great conclusion to the series, would totally recommend it.
All of them
All of it
I wouldn't it would ruin it
"Great ending to the series"
Good story that kept me engaged all the way through. Even better than the earlier one in the series.
