Michael J. Sullivan garnered critical raves and a massive readership for his Riyria Revelations series. The first book in his highly anticipated Riyria Chronicles series of prequels, The Crown Tower brings together warrior Hadrian Blackwater with thieving assassin Royce Melborn. The two form a less-than-friendly pairing, but the quest before them has a rare prize indeed, and if they can breach the supposedly impregnable walls of the Crown Tower, their names will be legend.

The books they are all great and are well worth your time ,cash or credit. I look forward to more adventures with the Riyria. Very funny and a good story too. Great narration also.
Sullivan is an author at the top of his game here. I have enjoyed reading several Riyria Chronicle books, the Crown Tower takes it up a notch.
This story is just so damn fine. Its simple, its not an 'end of the world over the top super human' fantasy novel. Its downplayed. The characters are real. They are well defined. Its almost all character development in fact. And this makes it just soooo good.
There might be a couple of other fantasy authors I would rate as being 'the best' working today. Rothfuss. George RR Martin. Brandon Sanderson... For myself, Michael Sullivan with this story joins this pantheon of greats. Beautiful work.
This one ranks very near the top. It is a wonderful engaging story and Tim Reynolds is excellent in his performance. It is so had to put this book down.
I am new to Tim Gerard Reynolds - I am fully entertained by his performance. Well done sir.
I started this series in the order it was written. I learned to really like both main characters. This book is how they got introduced and it did Not disappoint. I would like to say more but don't want to ruin the story. Read this one first if you like Chronological order, otherwise the books stand well on their own.
The narrator does well with the voices and I like this tones, except for the yip of a dog....lol. Besides that he does well and there are no odd editing spots that can sometimes happen. It is well done in story and audio.
The narrator is brilliant and the story exciting. I was skeptical to going back in time but found the story to be up to the rest of the series. Strongly recommended.
I bought this on a lark and wasn't expecting too much. I found the world as well as the people in it to be surprisingly interesting and engaging. To be blunt the the tale was shockingly good and I was very intrigued by its many twists and turns.
As good as Riyira Revelations. Has all the situational humor, epic storytelling, amazing characters, and fast pace I have come to love from Michael J Sullivan!
