Publisher's Summary

A rising star in the fantasy genre, Michael J. Sullivan has built an ardent following for his Riyria Revelations saga, which draws to its epic conclusion in Heir of Novron.

On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

Heir of Novron contains Wintertide and Percepliquis, books 5 and 6 of Riyria Revelations.

the Heir of Novron by Michael.J.Sullevan

This is the last book of the Ryeira series. It was an amazng series. I recommend it to anyone who loves a continuing story line . The story is lined with such a rich variety of characters and the story rich with life and passions. so sad it is over. Thanks Michael.
The reader Tim Gerad Reynolds is amazing. I love the way he pronounces the word Cross. He really knows how to bring a tale to life.

A very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

Starting the first book in the series, I was unsure I would even finish the set. But the story grew stronger through the first block and really hit it pace by the second book. And the third book filled in all the outstanding details nicely.

The narration was filled with great voice characterization throughout the series.

After so many hours with Royce and Hadrian, I will miss their storytelling company.

So good

I thoroughly enjoyed this series and would recommend to all readers who love a well written book. The performance was top notch. So talented to manage all the characters. I faced all of the emotions, while listening to this story and will probably go thru the whole epic again.

If you're a fan of Riyria then you don't need any "selling" from me. An epic finish to an epic tale.

Comfort reading

This series is easy listening/reading. It is thoroughly enjoyable with well structured but two dimensional characters. All narrative twists are carefully flagged so you can anticipate what is going to happen. However, it is still compelling enough to warrant listening.

Think of it as having the same structure as a romance novel. You know the story: there is adversity to overcome before everyone (nearly) gets what they deserve in the end.

This sounds like damning with faint praise, but I really recommend it for a beach-read.

AN EXCELLENT TRILOGY

This was the third book in The Riyria Revelations trilogy. I thoroughly enjoyed this series.
All three books in this series are very long books, so if you are not into that....

Book 1 The Theft of Swords
Is 22 hours and deals with Royce and Hadrian mistakenly getting involved into this adventure

Book 2 Rise of Empire
Is 26 hours and the continuation of the story. I think it was an excellent book, but not as exciting as the first and third.

Book 3 This book, Heir of Novron
Is a long 31 hours, and brings the adventure all together

Sullivan has another series with some of the same characters, but so far I haven't listened.

Very Good

Would you consider the audio edition of Heir of Novron to be better than the print version?

Apples and oranges.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked them all in the end.

The very last. It should have been predictable, but wasn't.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You'll have to cast me in it first!

Any additional comments?

A touch of Ambercrombie. A touch of Sanderson. A touch of Salvatore. A touch of Feist.

A fitting conclusion

What made the experience of listening to Heir of Novron the most enjoyable?

The fact that the story continued on without any surprises or unbelievable twists that disrupted what had been previously told in the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Heir of Novron?

The most memorable moments are when the heroes are facing off agains the gilarabryn while trying to recover the horn and the final battle duel for control of the human and elven realms

Any additional comments?

I think Heir of Novron is a fitting conclusion to one of the best fantasy trilogies I have read in a long time. Yes, I still think there were too many different characters used for POV. Yes, I don't think that the "twists" were well disguised and were very predictable. But the fact that it is just a good story over comes these faults.This story is very classical for the genre. I think will be liked by anyone who has a taste for epic high fantasy stories that are fun with lots of action and intrigue.

Good but not great.

This is the last of the trilogy. It’s ok. Im not a fan of the fantasy genre. But this came as a recommendation from a friend. I liked the first two books. I’m a “completionist”. Otherwise I would have stopped listening 2 books ago (there are 6 separate stories in the trilogy: 2 Stories in each book. Go figure...) After the first two books it started getting a bit cliche. The main characters do have growth throughout the series. There are some good and unexpected twists. But it’s not as compelling as Patrick Rothfuss’ “King Killer” series which I have really enjoyed. The narrator was very good and had a wide range of voices. But too often it sounded like he would keep the same voices when switching characters in a rapid dialogue exchange. If your a fan of the fantasy genre I think most will like it.

A satisfying end to the Riyeria Chronicles

In these final two books, Michael J. Sullivan wraps up the adventures of Royce and Hadrian (Riyeria) and the arc of the story satisfies the fans: the (surviving) characters remain true to themselves even as they move on with their lives; the mystery driving the series from the beginning is explained (and enough clues are there for even me to figure out most of it ahead of time, but not in such a way that the characters seemed like dunces); and the journey to the end is packed with adventure and humor.

It's really hard to end a series, especially one with the type of characters that the reader can invest herself in and a world where fans can easily imagine further adventures for the beloved cast. Just look at the TV shows Lost or Battlestar Galactica. But the author does a great job of wrapping everything up in a natural way, with a coda that satisfies the fan's desire to know what happens to the characters after the adventures are over.

Again, the narrator was a huge contributor to making this series snappy and enjoyable. He slipped up in the voices once in awhile during extended dialogue, but his reading really brought the colorful world and its distinct characters to life.
