Publisher's Summary

A rising star in the fantasy genre, Michael J. Sullivan has built an ardent following for his Riyria Revelations saga, which draws to its epic conclusion in Heir of Novron.

On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

Heir of Novron contains Wintertide and Percepliquis, books 5 and 6 of Riyria Revelations.

    "Very Good"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Heir of Novron to be better than the print version?

    Apples and oranges.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked them all in the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very last. It should have been predictable, but wasn't.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You'll have to cast me in it first!


    Any additional comments?

    A touch of Ambercrombie. A touch of Sanderson. A touch of Salvatore. A touch of Feist.

    "Loved it"
    Would you listen to Heir of Novron again? Why?

    I already have, and will do so again. I can see this being on my once-a-year list


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire package. The characters, the plot, the surprises, the humor, the pace of the story - all were excellent. My husband and both my brothers all have loved this series and we are all missing it..


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

    His performance was solid, generally stayed with the correct voice for the character. He brought emotion when needed, and his timing for the humor was spot on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes and yes. Laughed, cried, thought about it when I wasn't reading it, tried to figure out plot.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend. Its an extremely enjoyable series.

    I love to read. I also love to write.I'm a harsh critic and very, very, very rarely give five star reviews to anything. Three stars for me is an average representation of literature and not a bad review by any stretch.

    "A fitting conclusion"
    What made the experience of listening to Heir of Novron the most enjoyable?

    The fact that the story continued on without any surprises or unbelievable twists that disrupted what had been previously told in the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heir of Novron?

    The most memorable moments are when the heroes are facing off agains the gilarabryn while trying to recover the horn and the final battle duel for control of the human and elven realms


    Any additional comments?

    I think Heir of Novron is a fitting conclusion to one of the best fantasy trilogies I have read in a long time. Yes, I still think there were too many different characters used for POV. Yes, I don't think that the "twists" were well disguised and were very predictable. But the fact that it is just a good story over comes these faults.This story is very classical for the genre. I think will be liked by anyone who has a taste for epic high fantasy stories that are fun with lots of action and intrigue.

    What did you love best about Heir of Novron?

    All I can say is that I will miss these two guys. The series wraps up nicely. If you liked the first two books this one is a no brainer

    "Great entry in the series"
    If you could sum up Heir of Novron in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting satisfying listen


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heir of Novron?

    Iliked the retrival of the horn and the fight between Hardian and the elves


    What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made the characters very interesting. He had a great voice and was consistent throught the 3 books. I knew who was talking without being told.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    One of the things I like about this series, it provides great adventure with a lot of humor. There were definielty sad parts, since some of the ones who died were not evil (or at least not all evil).


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best epic fantasy series I have listended to. Each book is a story in its own right, but I loved the way everything came together at the end, especially the aspect of Nimbus (which for some reason I did not see coming).

    "Very happy with the ending!"

    I've been in love with this series since the first book, and I am so happy that the ending didn't disappoint. Of course, most listeners will have figured out a lot of what will happen, but there are enough surprises to keep you from getting bored!

    Sullivan's writing is pretty straightforward, and he doesn't waste a lot of time on pretty prose or description, but the story gallops along with verve and enthusiasm. The whole series is just plain fun. We get conspiracies, betrayals, love, sword fights, adventure on the high seas, elves, goblins, assassins, thieves, war, royalists vs imperialists vs nationalists, friendship, impending doom and redemption. Who could want more than that?

    "Great action, thought, humor and narration"

    I live for medieval action and mystery and this book certainly delivers but just as excelllent is the thought, humor and character interaction. Everyone has a reason for being who they are and doing what they do as the series of books peel through the layers of time and circumstance to reveal and reward the listener with a thoughtful epic of swordplay, magic and camaraderieship. It can be compared to Lord of the Rings in some respects with it's knights, wizards, priests, royalty and history of elves, dwarves and goblins though stands on its own merit and originality. I missed many an evening watching TV preferring instead to listen to the next chapter, then next chapter again of this wonderful series.

    "An amazing story"
    Where does Heir of Novron rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Ryria Revelations series in general is a rather strong series and the final book in the duality audiobook "Heir of Novron" is by far the best. Among movies you can often find depictions based on the excitement level defined by time, usually peeking around the point of no return.

    Where some of my other favorite series typically gave higher highs, but also lower lows the final books ride on an overall high level albeit with fewer peaks, but very few low points.

    The series is highly rated, and amongst books ive read/heard i would put the final book in my top 10


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heir of Novron?

    There wont be any spoilers in this text and i am being deliberately vague

    Though the primary plot point throughout the series can be reasoned by most sooner or later in the series, the final book still manages to throw curve balls that not only fit, but are immensely satisfying when discovered. For me personally swinging from suspected guesses to things i newer even considered.

    The development and interaction between the characters grow and are also very good.
    Myron also deserves his own special mention as his character is fantastic.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Gerard Reynolds’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Tim Gerard does an excellent job through the entire series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Great ending to the series"
    What did you like most about Heir of Novron?

    This book brought the trilogy to a satisfactory conclusion. Some surprising and some satisfying deaths (!) and a nice twist to the tale towards the end.
    The series as a whole is fairly gentle without deep character development or complex motivations, it is nevertheless a pleasant listen which had me finding excuses to keep listening to see what happens next; always a good sign.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Gerard Reynolds’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Tim's performance was great as always. A few slip-ups where voices were mixed up for a few words but that reflects how distinct the main characters voices were.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All the proper reactions to the perils and triumphs of the characters. A smile at the interplay between them.

    It's good, fun, light-hearted entertainment.

    The narration is fine, though at times some of the characters sound almost a little too jolly for the moment.

    It's worth listening to the whole series, as the thread is good and clues are given early on.
