Bestseller Kindle Heir of Novron (This is a review of "The Riyria Revelations")By the flip of the last page of the "Heir of Novron", I felt like I have lost a piece of myself. For weeks, I have been plowing through the books with unbridled enthusiasm. I was expecting a sense of triumph upon finishing the books, instead I was hit with a legendary book hangover! The world of Elan is so intoxicating, I just wanted to wallow in this realm forever. Sadly, the real world beckons... Char! I think one paragraph is enough to get all the melodrama out of my system. Michael J. Sullivan deserves a fair review, and a highly favorable one at that."The Riyria Revelations" tells a spectacular story that is familiar and yet completely different. "The Crown Conspiracy" introduces a duo of thieves: Royce Melbourn and Hadrian Blackwater, who are hired to steal a sword from a castle. The job is not as simple as they had expected, and it set off a series of events that would change the course of the world. Along the way they meet princesses, warlords, pirates, monks, magicians, and all sorts of colorful characters.Royce and Hadrian are complex characters, thieves of renown who are exceptional at what they do. They each have a rich history that slowly comes to light over the course of the novels, and I can’t help but think that this is part of the meaning behind the series’ title. The two are simultaneously funny and lethal. Their banter is a joy to read, and their escapades are entertaining. Characterization, I think, is the strongest component of the story.Coming in a close second is the plot . Sullivan tells a matter-of-fact story, one that is not filled with flowery language nor is it devoid of life. Each novel is a complete book in itself, satisfying to read without leaving me too dependent upon cliffhangers or vague endings. There is an over-arching story, of course, and I can’t imagine anyone reading any single book of this set without wanting to read the rest. The books are quick reads, despite their hefty pages, and pacing is never slow.The world-building comes out just as strong as the plot. Like the characters, the history of the world grows with each novel. The old empire fell hundreds of years ago, and in its wake several independent kingdoms arose. Imperialists look to rebuild the empire. Nationalists seek democracy. Royalists prefer a monarchy to rule over them. These factions provide plenty of room for conflict, as do the religions that accompany the various peoples.I’m trying to think of shortcomings but I am just too in love with the series, that it just comes out perfect no matter what angle I try to view it . Sullivan’s books are tight stories with intense action and wonderful characters. Tropes appear and disappear, sometimes subverted, sometimes not. The conclusion is breathtaking and exciting."The Riyria Revelations" and their prequels, "The Riyria Chronicles" are wonderful novels that I can recommend to any person with a passing interest in fantasy fiction. They would be a great place to start for a budding reader into genre fiction, but they are also great for the seasoned ones too.Just prepare yourself for the grief you have to go through when you finish it. But don't worry, it will be worth it. Heck, I would do it all over again! That feeling of falling truly, madly, deeply in love with a book is worth every last bit of the heartache, right?
