review 1: Last year, I took a chance and used a monthly audible credit on a book called Theft of Swords. I'm glad I did. I devoured it, and it's two sequels. Fantastic story, great characters, and I was happy with the way it ended. Then I found out Mr Sullivan was writing a prequel. I...

review 1: I absolutely loved this book! All the action packed scenes, humor, romance, loyalty and betrayal, mythical creatures, friendship, and so much more that kept me reading well into the night! From the beginning I always thought Hadrian was the Heir or Guardian but I did not expect R...

review 1: I really enjoyed this book. I like sci fi / fantasy novels and thought this created another world to set this story in without making the descriptions of the setting take away from the plot. I also liked the slight questioning of what it is to love and how much of life partner/ r...

review 1: Royce and Hadrian are new partners heading toward a new job when they come across a woman that needs their help with a strange man in her barn. Though Royce does not want to help, he allows Hadrian to help in order to teach him a life lesson.This is a short story (actually it lat...

review 1: A quick short story involving our favorite characters Hadrian and Royce set after the events of The Rose and The Thorn. It is a shame that this couldn't have been become a full length novel, perhaps bringing in some new characters although they would be one time participants, n...

review 1: I didn't find all of the writing as good as Riyria Chronicles #1, but I did find the story equally as gripping. Writing is important because it determines whether you'll stay within the story or get pulled out because something made you cringe- sounded corny, didn't mesh with the...

review 1: The tale continues in this book part two. Good story!! Needs list of characters, perhaps. There's a list of places and religious figures. In this volume the author added two more characters whose name begins with an A and stuck to his rather curious habit of using the same letter...

review 1: I read this book in Dutch, but they are still being translated so I had to wait an awful long time on Wintertide. But it was worth it.To be honest, my friends spoiled the whole book a bit. They all aren't that crazy to wait for the translations and have read all the books like 2 ...

review 1: Review of the book: OMG THAT WAS AMAZING!Review of the whole Riyria Revelations: Winter is starting, days are getting shorter and colder. This time of year, what is better than curling up on the couch for a few hours with a good book. And what better kind of book than one that br...

review 1: This book has gotten me back into reading.. I love to read but something inside me has broken and for the longest time, I couldn't get myself to read past a few sentences of whatever book I pick up.I don't know if I'm all the way whole or if I'll ever be again but I am grateful t...

review 1: No spoilers, although I must say these books should be read in order.What a great series, really enjoyed it, if you like epic fantasy, read these and do not wait.As I have written in previous reviews, I really enjoyed how the characters grew in depth and character as more of thei...

review 1: The first book in this series took me a while to get into but I was so vested in Royce and Hadrian by the end I flew through book 2. I even listened to it on a long car trip so I could finish Theft of Swords as soon as possible. I really like the dialogue and the way each story u...

review 1: A nice,quick read. Hadrian and Royce make a nice pair. I liked Royce better,like Ron in Harry Potter but grown up. Like the previous short story,this one also doesn't require a prior knowledge of Ryiria chronicles. But it would have helped in understanding the jester's past. What...

review 1: No Spoilers.This series keeps getting better with each book, as the larger story unfolds and the characters develop further. The world building is not as immense as you would find in the door stop novels of Sanderson, Jordan et al., but just enough to make you look forward to tur...

review 1: Най- добрата от поредицата до сега. Разрешиха се доста проблеми и се отвориха толкова много нови, че не знам как ще ги оправи само в последния том. Въпреки всичко не съм притеснен, защото още от първия том имам чувството, че Съливан знае точно какво ще се случи във всяка една кни...

review 1: Where to begin with this book... Trying to keep this short and spoiler free - Amelia has to be one of the worst POV characters in the genre. This book starts out great, ends great, middle section - not so much. Amelia's story (that started in the last book) began with promise - s...

review 1: I haven't time to write a full review so I am going to keep this brief. If you haven't started this series yet, you NEED TO.For five books now we have followed the journey of Hadrian and Royce. I must say, for the amount of books involved, Sullivan has kept this story very tight....

review 1: This series starts out so well. A pair of anti heroes that don't care about being the "hero" part terribly much? Well that at least is something I've always enjoyed. A character that's a real character, that does "something good" because it happens to be to his own ends.That's ou...

review 1: AMAZING!! I just loved it. I thought this series would be continuous, with each book beginning right where the last one finished. However, it turns out it spans over the years. Again, the plot, characters & adventure were amazing. Hints were given about the heir of Novron & his ...

review 1: Its refreshing to read something simple once in a while. This book had good humor like its predecessors. The author says, he wanted to write a simple story (a string of stories in fact) without much complexity. So, even though its on the expected lines mostly, the story's strengt...

review 1: This one is not as riveting or action packed as the first two in the series but I understand that you need the middle books in a series in order to make a great saga.It was uneven.I would have liked more time with the Empress.I'm sick of Hadrian always talking/whining about retir...
