Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A Thrilling Continuation!"

    The story continues in much the same way as the first volume. Two gran adventures that put new puzzles into place. Each element that is introduced furthers the story and makes things clearer while adding more questions. Best of all, the comedy continues and the characters only seem to grow in complexity.
