Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Fantasy, 2013

This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king.

Entire Series - Excellent

I loved this series. I finished all three of the Riyria Revelations and I'm looking forward to audio books by Michael J Sullivan. I have not gone into the Riyria Chronicles yet, but I can't get enough of these characters yet.

How does he come up with this stuff!

Any additional comments?

Tim Gerard Reynolds is a masterful narrator. His low voice adds a depth to the narration you can’t find in another reader. His female voices are distinctive and his male voices are diverse. Some narrators make difference voices for each character but you don’t always feel a male or female is speaking. Reynolds is gifted and makes me feel like I’m standing right next to the person speaking. I believe these books were made to be read by Reynolds alone. I can’t imagine another narrator for these books, and I have a list of narrators I love to listen to.

Suri was an instant favorite with me in the first book. She grows so much in this one, but the surprise is Roan and Gifford. We learn more about Roan in this story and find she is a mental magician and Gifford is stronger than we think. There's more to Gifford's story not ready to be shared yet.

There are predictable outcomes in this story due to inserts of thought from various characters in this current series and or previous knowledge of the existing Riyria sagas. But as in with life, it’s not all about the destination… the journey is where the true story is. This book is just the beginnings of the journey. I can’t wait for more.

Story is great but the narration is a bit dull and nearly mono tone compared to other narrators.

Enthralling!

I can't tell you how many times I've sat in my driveway for quite some time, waiting for the action to slow down, just so I could go my front door.

A Damn Good Fantasy Novel

The characters are amazing. The pace and the action is spot on. The crucial moments of the books are built up to, well deserved, powerful, and heartfelt.
