Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great Characters on a Wild Adventure"

    I really enjoyed the development of Hadrian & Royce as characters. The way their stories unfolded, how different they are from one another, and how their relationship develops. There are several plot twists and turns, and when the story concludes your left with wanting more. Much much more. A great listen!!

    "Love!"

    This is my third time listening to this book. If you plan on reading the series start with this one. It is the beginning of a story worth listening to on repeat. Loveable characters with a meaningful message.

    "Easily my favorite so far"

    I started M Sullivan's books years after their publication . I was very tempted to start at the beginning of the story of Ryira rather than starting at the first book published and then going back for the prequel. All I can say is I am ever so glad I trusted how the author had originally laid out the story and went by publication date. While this would be a great adventure story all on its own, knowing what the characters become adds humor to otherwise grim situations and dialogue. I felt like I was reminiscing with old friends about the days when they were reckless and lost in the world.

    "Great"

    I have been putting off reading this book. I was afraid the prequel would not do the original series justice. I was wrong. Sullivan has done a masterful job with this new beginning.
    And of course the narration is fantastic.

    "Couldn't stop listening"
    What made the experience of listening to The Crown Tower the most enjoyable?

    Couldn't stop listening, and now I want to hear about how the boys survived and how they hopefully will continue their friendship.


    What about Tim Gerard Reynolds’s performance did you like?

    Very well read.
