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 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 true Heir of Novron---and they have their own holiday plans.
When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first books of his Riyria Revelations series online, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere.
Heir of Novron is the final volume of The Riyria Revelations and includes Wintertide and ---available for the first time--- the final volume, Percepliquis.
BOOKS IN THE RIYRIA REVELATIONS
Theft of Swords (The Crown Conspiracy & Avempartha)
Rise of Empire (Nyphron Rising & The Emerald Storm)
Heir of Novron (Wintertide & Percepliquis)
Sullivan's third duology (after Theft of Swords and Rise of Empire) includes his originally self-published fifth novel, Wintertide, and a highly anticipated new one, Percepliquis. As figurehead Empress Modina plans a coup to reclaim her throne, the elves return to invade the realms of man after vanishing thousands of years before. Defeating them will require the magical Horn of Gylindora and the lost heir of the line of Novron. Mercenaries Hadrian Blackwater and Royce Melborn search for the Horn, joined by the "wizardess" princess Arista and the scholarly monk Myron. Death traps, magic, long-lost children, and real and decoy heirs abound. Sullivan is not a subtle writer, and the sudden romance between Hadrian and Arista is hastily tacked on, but he delivers a fun story with plenty of sword fighting and some genuine surprises.

End of an Epic
Particularly in the fantasy genre, there is not really a whole lot of humor integrated into the story. Multiple times I found myself laughing out loud. Integrate that humor with a truly epic plot, and you have an excellent book to read. The characters are very well developed and I am sad to see them go. I was very satisfied with the way the series wrapped up however. I hope to see more material from this author.
And I felt compelled to let it be known that I loved this book.
A great ending
Michael J. Sullivan really knows how to write a gripping story. This series is a must read and is among my favorites. I missed a lot of sleep due to being caught up in the action. I went from one book into the next. Michael J. Sullivan is now on my must buy list for authors.
