9780356501086: Heir of Novron (Riyria Revelations)

A forced wedding. A double execution. Two thieves have other plans.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 to 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 Heir of Novron and they have their own holiday plans.

And so concludes the final tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.

When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first books of his Riyria Revelations, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere.

From the Author:

NOTE: Heir of Novron contains the last two books in my Riyria Revelations series:Wintertide (#5) and Percepliquis (#6).
 
And so it comes to a close, a tale that banged around in my head for over fifteen years. My intention was to write a series that started out simply, but have mysteries deepen, character backgrounds revealed slowly, and stakes escalate across the entire tale. I must say I'm very happy with the final result, and Percepliquis is by far my favorite book of the series. This shouldn't be a huge surprise as I've said from the beginning that my intention was to make each book better than the one that came before. 

Constructing the series as I did was a risk.  After all, it means the first books will be the weakest links by design.  That really didn't matter when I started writing, because I had no intention on publishing.  My audience was myself, and a few close friends and family, so reading all the volumes was pretty much a guarantee. As that goal changed, I considered restructuring the books to a more traditional "front loaded" design but ultimately decided that the original approach provided the most satisfying read.  Yes, there will be those that drop out early who determine the book to "light" or "lacking depth," but my focus is on the opinion of readers who view the picture in its entirety, rather than just the first 1/3. 

As I write this it is mid-November 2012.  A full year since the release of Theft of Swords and more than ten-months since the final book.  I'm floored that all the books have remained on Amazon's Bestselling Historical Fantasy books since their release.  But what's more amazing is that Heir of Novron is routinely found on the following Top Rated Lists:

  • #1 (US) & #2 (UK) Historical Fantasy
  • #3 (US) & #4 (UK) Epic Fantasy
  • #11 (US) & #12 (UK) Fantasy
  • #1 (US) Men's Adventure
  • #6 (US) Action & Adventure
  • #73 (US) & #75 (UK) Fiction
To be rated in the top 100 of all fiction titles on Amazon can only be described as surreal.  I want to publicly thank all those people who have not only read the books, but taken the time to leave a review which is the whole reason the book has made these lists.  I guess my decision to keep the series structure was a good one.

Many people have written me and asked, begged, and even pleaded to continue the series as they want more adventures with Royce and Hadrian. I of course had hoped that would be the case, but honestly, I never wanted to dream that may come true.  Although the series was carefully designed to begin and end where it has, I did have various spin-offs and ancillary stories that could be told. As it became apparent that there was a demand for more adventures, I put a poll on my blog offering various options for future works. 

The overwhelming consensus was to go back in time and show the founding of Riyria and the earlier adventures of Royce and Hadrian.  To that end I've written a new series, The Riyria Chronicles and I'm pleased to announce that Orbit has once again agreed to release them.  At this time the books written are:
  • The Crown Tower (Aug 1, 2013) - which explores the first assignment that Royce and Hadrian did together.
  • The Rose and the Thorn (Sep 5, 2013) - which explores the actual founding of Riyria and introduces Albert Winslow (as liaison to the gentry), and Gwen DeLancy becoming the proprietor of The Rose and Thorn Tavern which acts as the duo's base of operations.
If you finish Heir of Novron and find yourself "jonsing" for more adventures with Royce and Hadrian, I hope you'll tune in for these next two books. I'm very pleased with how they came out, and even more importantly, my wife Robin loves them.  She is the barometer by which I decide such things and if her enthusiasm is any indication, I think you'll enjoy the ride.

Michael.
