Best-selling author Michael J. Sullivan’s mesmerizing Riyria Revelations series has found a welcome home with fans of magic, clashing swords, and daring heroes. This second volume finds Royce and Hadrian on a quest to enlist the southern Nationalists to aid the ever-weakening kingdom of Melengar. Royce suspects an ancient wizard is manipulating them all, but to find the truth he’ll have to decipher Hadrian’s past—a past Hadrian wants to keep secret.
Rise of Empire contains Nyphron Rising and The Emerald Storm, books 3 and 4 of Riyria Revelations.

Thanks! more please! :)
Kind of hard to say with out spoiling... So I'll just say there were a lot and some were very moving and / or fun.
Same as above :)
Again, a great performance by the voice actor / narrator.
This book is a fantastic read/listen and is a great transition to the final chapter of the trilogy! It continues into the world building and helps progress the events and story to a larger more epic scale.
wonderful, all the way through the twists and turns until the end.... terrible ending/cliff hanger
and yes, I'll be acquiring the next book momentarily. lol
Not quite Brandon Sanderson, but still very good. Some of the emotion was quaint. Still very good overall.
I enjoyed the first book of the series but really fell in love with the characters in this book. Much of my enjoyment came from the skill of the narrator who brought the cast to life and made me forget that I listening to only one person.
As a stand alone story this doesn't work too well but as a follow on it draws you further in and leaves you wanting to begin the next book immediately - which is what I plan on doing right now. For someone who doesn't read a lot of Fantasy I have been converted by this series.
Yes, to anyone who loves every aspect of a good book, written into a Sci Fi Fantasy series this is the one. There has not been a lot of mushy love story, but real life good character development, and amazing story line. I think this is my favorite of all next to Muirwood by Wheeler.
Not done with book 3 yet in order to know. But probably when Thresa calls the games bluff and puts an end to the conspiraacy.
A true Depth of intrigue and suspense, intermingled with strength, character, action, drama and deep love.
I was actually thinking what a great movie this series would make. I have really enjoyed it all three books.
Generally, I find that subsequent volumes of successful books are not as good as the initial offering. However, this one breaks the pattern, and is at least as good as the first! Can't wait to see if Vol 3 meets the same high standard!
