Présentation de l'éditeur

Two thieves want answers. Riyria is born...

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.

Un an après "Crown Tower", revoici nos héros Royce et Hadrian. Cette fois, l'intrigue s'articule autour de 3 personnages secondaires : la jeune prostituée Rose, le vicomte fauché Albert, et le jeune garde fougueux et courageux Reuben (Très chou, ce Reuben; la scène entre Reuben et le roi est l'une des plus belles du livre).

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...

The events take place 1 year after The Crown Tower.

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.

HASH(0x8c415750) étoiles sur 5 Love Riyria, as always! 26 septembre 2013
Par Sparkly Fluff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As I knew I would, I loved this book! I love any excuse to get into 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!

HASH(0x8c9a6750) étoiles sur 5 Another Great Riyria Story! 30 septembre 2013
Par Andrea T. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
First, let me say that I do not get tired of these books. They're fun reads, touching on serious subjects and containing emotional moments without ever making the ride less fun. The cast of characters are incredible, and the world is an interesting take on a fantasy setting. These are awesome books to read if you're coming off something really heavy, and just awesome books in general. (I never seem to be able to write a review for one without being like "just read them all.")

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.

HASH(0x8c6c0660) étoiles sur 5 I've been looking forward to this book for almost a year 11 octobre 2013

After reading the Riyria Revelations, I was depressed that I wasn't going to read anything more with my favorite character, Hadrian Blackwater. After the prequel books were published I fell in love all over again.
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!

This was a great book! Loved just as much as the other Riyria books which I loved! I really enjoyed reading about Hilfred and getting his back story as well. It was a great ending and I hope there will be more of the Chronicles but if not this book ended well and made a great entry into the Riyria Revelations if you hadn't read them yet.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the original books, this "look back" is just underwhelming. I love the authors writing style and story telling but this is just not very interesting!

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.
