Présentation de l'éditeur
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, Royce returns to Medford with Hadrian but the two 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.

On retrouve le plaisir enfantin d'une Fantasy classique avec bagarres, combats d'épée, morceaux de bravoure et complots à la Cour. Et l'auteur nous rappelle que même si Royce s'est un peu assagi au contact d'Hadrian, il reste un homme excessivement dangereux, et gare à ceux qui osent toucher à ses amis : Royce va le faire payer cher. Très cher...
Still in love with this world and these characters. Albert, the penniless noble, is a good addition and Reuben Hillfred is given a big amount of "space" in this book. He deserves it. The church, through Saldur the Bishop, is ever plotting and Gwen and her ladies are now safe.
Glad I got to learn how it all started. I can now start a re-read of the Revelations.
Thank you Mr Sullivan for creating this world.

As I said in my review of The Crown Tower I still think that The Riyria Chronicles are best read AFTER The Riyria Revelations. I don't think you will really be spoiled for anything in the longer series if you don't, but I think my own experience was more satisfying that way. The manner in which each character is introduced in The Riyria Revelations series and the back story that is offered is absolutely enough to make that set of books complete and wonderful. The Riyria Chronicles books are like little extra treats that give you even more background and more reasons to love the Riyria Revelations. I'm still not sure if I would love The Riyria Chronicles as much if I hadn't read The Riyria Revelations first.
It really is great to see Royce and Hadrian at this point in their partnership, just one year after their first adventure in The Crown Tower. They are settling in, getting used to each other, but still not 100% sure of what drives the other.
I enjoyed learning more about Hilfred and the resolution of Gwen's problems with some of the misogynistic locals. It was also fun to see the young Pickerings!
I really hope this will not be the last Riyria adventure we get!
Anyway, I will say that I didn't think the pacing was quite as good in this one as some of the other entries in the Riyria universe. I think for me the POV almost changed a little too rapidly at times. It's something to note, though I didn't find that it distracted me from the story overly much. I finished it in less than two days.
Michael Sullivan does a wonderful job of keeping the details the same as in the Revelation series. It doesn't feel like this book was tacked on as extra, but rather is a part the series. It's evident that he had this whole story including the background story fleshed out before he even considered writing the prequels.
Rose and The Thorn gave me a lot of satisfaction because not only did I get more of my favorite hero, but I got a little bit of future information that happens after the Riyria Revelations! That in itself made reading the book worth it all the more!
I would love the author to start another story line, how about telling the story of the Novron Prince (don't recall his name) and his body guard and their survival/adventures.
