Two thieves want answers. Riyria is born.
For more than a year, Royce Melborn has tried to forget Gwen DeLancy, the woman who saved him and his partner, Hadrian Blackwater, from certain death. Unable to get her out of his mind, the two thieves return to Medford but receive a very different reception - Gwen refuses to see them. The victim of abuse by a powerful noble, she suspects that Royce will ignore any danger in his desire for revenge. By turning the thieves away, Gwen hopes to once more protect them. What she doesn't realize is what the two are capable of - but she's about to find out.

All Michael Sullivan books are just awesome! Great world building, epic fighting and just plain fun! Worth getting!
Absolutely. I loved this book. Although, I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it as much if i hadn't read Riyria Revelations first. This book answered most if not all the questions I had about how Royce and Hadrian actually met. Fantastic story.
Both Royce and Hadrian equally. I cant bring myself to pick a side.
Yes and this is just as good if not the best I've heard.
Yes. but I couldn't.. took me a few days.
plenty of action in this book. The fight scenes were perfectly written from every point of view. And the dialog between Royce and Hadrian is priceless!
Country girl, rock hound, farmer, hairdresser. I almost always have a book going.
Some books take time to warm to, but not so with The Riyria Chronicles. Engaging and fun are a few of the traits I enjoy about the writing. This author is new to me and so far I just want more, more, more. That hasn't happened to me in quite some time. I go through a lot of books so, ya, pretty darn pleased with this series so far.
If you like the first series - you'll like this one, but it does seem rather tidy that virtually all the threads were woven so tightly in the one 48 hour period.
I was disappointed that I paid for the Viscount & the Witch story twice. Once as a Kindle book and then as part of this audio book. Fortunately Gerard Reynolds is so nice to listen to I almost didn't mind. But I did knock off 1 star for it.
Well, half the book is superb.
I generally dislike books that are written with multiple Point of View story lines. Sullivan's books tend to be the exception, but sadly not in this case. It is cool that Sullivan is writing about and fleshing out minor characters from the Riyria Revelations. I mean, it really worked out in The Crown Tower, I love Gwen now. This book however featured one of my least favorite characters, the worthless Hilfred, you know, Arista's bodyguard? Yeah, he sucks even more in this book, and takes up half the page count. And unlike in the first book, there is no meeting of Riyria and Hilfred.
It's a shame that Royce and Hadrian had at most 40% of the page count, because their parts were so much fun.
Read it if you've read the other ones, just know that half the book sucks.
The many pauses some lasting up to 10 or 15 seconds very disconcerting. I found myself looking at my phone to make sure it was still working. Found it very hard to listen to!
I liked the story from being to end as I have done with all the riyia revelations and riyia chronicles. Except for "The Rose and the Horn.
no problems with the performance except the "dircetions" left much to be desired. It felt as if they were trying to add time to the lenght of the book by add long pauses. As if we wouldn't figure it out!
