Présentation de l'éditeur

A forced wedding. A double execution. Two thieves have other plans.
The New Empire intends to mark its victory over the Nationalists with a bloody celebration. On the high holiday of Wintertide, the Witch of Melengar will be burned and the Heir of Novron executed. On that same day the Empress faces a forced marriage, with a fatal accident soon to follow. The New Empire is confident in the totality of its triumph, but there's just one problem--Royce and Hadrian have finally found the Heir of Novron and they have their own holiday plans.

And so concludes the final tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.

When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first books of his Riyria Revelations, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 De mieux en mieux 9 février 2013
Par Sylvia
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Et voilà, j'ai fini par attribuer 5 étoiles aux "Riyria revelations". L'histoire est de plus en plus prenante et ce tome 3 (qui correspond aux volumes 5 et 6 initiaux) est sans doute l'un des plus passionnants. Il y a dans ce livre beaucoup d'énergie, de sens épique et une volonté flagrante de faire plaisir aux lecteurs.
C'est un roman de Fantasy généreux et plein d'action. L'auteur sème des indices au fil des pages, j'avais donc compris qui étaient l'héritier de Novron et Mercy, mais peu importe. On quitte le livre le sourire aux lèvres et ravi de savoir que l'auteur va maintenant publier les premières aventures de Royce et Hadrian. Pas question que je rate cela...

This book and the rest in the series were enthralling, exciting, and addictive reading. It was one of the best series that I have read for a long time. I am just grateful that I found them in the winter, when I have more time to indulge myself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding journey, that left me in amazement. Wow. Just plain wow. Top Shelf keeper! 17 janvier 2012
Par MelHay - Publié sur Amazon.com
2 bks separated
Royce and Hadrian ride into Aquesta ragged and cold from the journey. Many people are coming to Aquesta for the upcoming Wintertide Celebration, one month away. The news has spread that Modina is to be married and the Nationalist leader Degan Gaunt will be executed, all as part of the celebrations. Melengar has fallen to the Imperial Empire. With this many worries come to mind...How's Gwen? Arista? Alric? So much to happen and worry about and questions to answer.

I got a chuckle at the beginning of this book with the small group of young thieves we meet. But, by now we are all well acquainted with the characters and ready for Michael to bring them back to life for us. I was excited to be back into this world ~ its comfortable to me and I want to see where we are going with the situations the characters were left in, in Emerald Storm. Again, I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what would happen to these characters left in a little bit of a tight spot.

Michael did a great job of setting up for this book with the previous ones and using what he had available in all aspects of the world. There is nothing new pulled out of thin air or make you wonder 'where did that come from', everything we need and know have been laid out for us, but now tied together to answer questions for us. Many of the smaller unknowns and lose ends are tied up here, within a captivating story in which Michael brings all the characters together and to demise, good or bad.

Men are fighting for their kingdom and homes against attackers we have feared would come. Arista's having horrible nightmares, Royce is depressed after the ending in Wintertide, and Hadrian feels guilt. The kingdoms are coming together under the ruling heir, Modina, as predicted, but without the horn it might all be destroyed. Our friends through the series have one last quest, that could be the death of them but with out it they will die anyway, they all want or need to go on, for different reasons but for the same result, to save man kind.

Screaming from the rooftops, MASTERFUL! This is THE way to end a magnificent fantasy series.

Michael weaves all the books together into this one, pulling pieces together and setting the world; past, present and future, in clear view for us. Just amazing the way Michael took two plain and simple thieves, to create an outstanding series and amazing ending.

This one book holds all the missing pieces we didn't realize we were missing, yet piecing all the secreted comments throughout the series together to complete everything. Michael has taken a series to all different levels through out this series, and this book is a fabulous ending to it all!

I laughed and cried and worried. Both for happiness and sadness, of many reasons -- the characters and their hardships and humor. I have to say I LOVED this book, such a perfect ending. I can't describe how well the ending fit for me, all the way to the last sentence. I don't think I can write a review that will give this book it's well deserved justice, or even the series itself. I am just floored with it all; the story, the characters, the depth of the world completed. All of it completed. And an action packed finale.

I was afraid the team wouldn't have their spark, but they had it. Oh they had it. Seeing the characters grow and live through emotions is what makes the book the best, digging deep in us to care. All the characters have their numerous shining moments.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Conclusion! 31 janvier 2012
Par rwbaker - Publié sur Amazon.com
This series took me by surprise. I picked up "The Crown Conspiracy" because I have exhausted all the big names in the genre and saw it one day on an Amazon search for another book. I expected it to be in the third tier of fantasy fiction, however I was completely wrong. I was mesmerized by Hadrian and Royce from the first chapter until the last of the series. I can offer no real criticisms besides a few typos in my kindle version. The character development was a breath of fresh air. After reading authors who spend page upon page describing scenery and trying for intricate character development the witty dialogue and intricate plot gripped me. The story is filled with amazing characters both good and bad. I would suggest these books for anyone who loves fantasy fiction.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun series, but flawed character development and plotting 24 février 2013
Par Poet and Quant - Publié sur Amazon.com
First of all, I enjoyed all three (six) of the volumes in this series. They were entertaining reads, and I appreciated the author's attempt to write epic fantasy with an optimistic or hopeful tone in a way that could appeal to readers of nearly all ages. (As much as I enjoy GRR Martin's works, I rue the fact that I won't be able to introduce my kids to them and to other similar fantasy works with dark and adult themes until they're considerably older.)

However, I believe the series could have benefited greatly from a better editor, who might have called attention to significant problems with character development and plotting that lessened my enjoyment of the books.

Although the author does a reasonably good job introducing and developing the characters of Royce and Hadrian throughout the books, the same cannot be said for other major characters, including Arista, Modina and Alric. For example, the personalities and character growth of both Arista and Alric over the course of the series more closely resemble inconsistent sine waves rather than arcs.

Arista begins the series as an introvert who shuns the trappings and responsibilities of royal command. She is also described as cunning and clever, with little concern for others beyond her immediate family. Somehow she abandons all that to become an accomplished de facto leader of several quests and campaigns and a champion of the common folk. Her emotional development is scattershot at best, as she vacillates between poorly developed infatuations and a final "love" that has almost no groundwork laid for it. And her sudden amazing competency in a magic system that relies on learning intricate, nuanced hand gestures when there's no one around to teach her (even before she gains possession of the magical robe)? It stretches the limits of suspension of disbelief.

Similarly, Alric begins as a spoiled royal wastrel, rapidly progresses to competent ruler and leader of armies (again with no groundwork for it), and just as rapidly regresses to the weak and petulant monarch expected of his original character.

Modina is perhaps the least believable of all. A peasant farm girl with no training in politics, policy or governing, who is imprisoned, abused and suicidal, suddenly overnight becomes a wise and insightful empress with a head for intrigue and governing? Not even remotely plausible, even with her explanation at the end giving credit to another character.

Moreover, some plot twists (particularly those involving the history and politics of the church) were overwrought with too many disguised motives and implausible actions, while other plot elements seemed woefully underdeveloped (such as the history and culture of the elves, given their central role in the overarching conflict of the series).

Finally, I fault the author's lazy setup or resolution of several key plot points. The author seems to believe that by skipping forward in time a few months or a couple of years (e.g., between books), he can gloss over the details of the character development that he asserts has taken place. The characters somehow manage to grow and transcend their previous shortcomings while we're not looking during those breaks in time. Likewise, resolution of several key plot points, including the final battle, rely upon deus ex magica plot devices for which there is insufficient foundation leading up to them to make them believable. [I'd be more specific, but I'm trying to avoid giving away spoilers.]

In conclusion, the series is quite entertaining as a whole, but in my opinion has significant flaws that keep it from rising to the level of a classic or a masterpiece, as other reviewers have labeled it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A masterpiece of an epic tale 26 février 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This review is really about the series as a whole because, quite frankly, I could not imagine loving a series more than I did with the Riyria Chronicles. I devoured all three (6) books in less than a month and as I mentioned in the review of Theft of Swords, it has reawakened a love of fantasy literature that I had long forgotten.

Perhaps because the author chose to write the entire series before publishing the first book, the cohesiveness of the story was just amazing. Everything fit together perfectly and in great detail. No story lines were left dangling, no twist or turn seemed out of place, and everything was well thought out and fit perfectly within the overall story. There are tons of little hints and foreshadows throughout the books.... some of which lead to obvious events or revelations about characters, and some still manage to catch you completely off guard. All the elements of an epic tale are here, action, corruption, deception and conspiracy, personal redemption, and shocking revelations. And they are all woven so intricately and precisely that it isn't until the end that you really see the masterpiece as a whole and can admire it's beauty. And it truly is. I have not enjoyed any books as much as these in many years and now that it's over it's actually a bit sad to see the tales of Royce, Hadrian, and all of the rest of the characters that devoured my free time these last few weeks end.

But I look forward to more from the author, and perhaps there will be a return to Riyria in the future which would be great to see.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A GREAT end to a FANTASTIC series! 31 janvier 2012
Par RachelOleo - Publié sur Amazon.com
I felt so sad to put it back on the shelf! The first tow I ordered on a whim, and I couldn't put them down! The character development is slow at the beginning of the series, but stick with it! You won't be disappointed!

While I would not put this on the level of McCaffrey or Martin, they were still very good and I wish they weren't over.

BUT, if you don't like the surprises to be hinted at, you may not enjoy this. Mr. Sullivan drops subtle and not so subtle hints about what will happen; if you would rather be told what happens rather than figure it out on your own, bear that in mind before reading.

Overall, wonderful!
