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.

    "Sulli does it again."
    Any additional comments?

    Sullivan is a great story teller and captivates you from start to end. My only complaint is that I have to wait a month till the second part.

    "Great addition"

    Another great addition. Prequel done right, a lot of accuracy and setting up things for the future (original trilogy).

    Keeps with violent parts but overall more light than dark, humor mixed in.

    "Michael J Sullivan is brilliant"

    Having read Riyria Revelations, I was anxious to get more of Royce and Hadrian. I am not disappointed, and am starting Chronicles book 2 when I complete this review! Wish these were each longer like 3 times as long!! I can't get enough. So you have some context, I love fantasy - epic fantasy the best - and I am a senior citizen - retired teacher and actor/director. I love the continual mysteries to be solved.. Thank you Mr. Sullivan!

    "Love Riyria and the worlds it creates!"

    Like all Michael J Sullivan books or was amazing start to finish! The plot is smooth, the dialog spectacular and the characters make you want to laught, cry, and fall in love with them I've and over again!

    plus

    Tim Gerard Reynolds has a voice like warm honey on silk and he gives each character their own touch in such a fabulous way! He has such a way with his voice that you are completely immersed in the story and it can be almost impossible to get out!

    "I never review but I just can't help myself now..."

    I never leave reviews. I'm lazy. But I just can't resist when it comes to this series. I screwed up my review on the book "Heir of Novron" so I'll include that one here. (No spoilers I swear). I just wanted to say that this author is a genius. I never enjoyed a book more than I enjoyed "Heir of Novron". The ending is just so mind boggling, while also staring u straight in the face from right under your nose. I was in shock. Complete and utter shock. The great kind. Insane and amazing and all those other great words. That's all. If you haven't read or heard the Riyria Revelations yet then you absolutely should. If you have already, then you know *exactly* what I'm talking about.

    Also, the Riyria Chronicles is amazing as well. All the stuff that was hinted at in Revelations is finally told in Chronicles. I know this was only book 1 of Chronicles, but already I'm in love with it.

    READ/LISTEN TO THIS SERIES!!! BOTH RIYRIA SERIES!!! You will NOT regret it!!!
