A buddy read with my friends at BB&B, because we love Hadrian and Royce!
Back with one of the best bromance couples ever, the thieving duo of Hadrian and Royce. The second in the Riyria Revelations, this book starts couple of years after the events which first introduced us to this risk taking, butt kicking and at this point, somewhat infamous team of very capable "retrievers of objects". Since the last big job, their names have become well known and even badly written plays are being performed by traveling troupes in front of crowds in many cities around the continent. This is why many people are looking for them - some to give them a job, some to lock them up, and others to maybe take more drastic measures... However, a young woman has been looking for them for a while and risks everything in order to find them. She and her father, as well as her whole village, need their help, although the way she initially presents the job to them is a bit misleading. She hires them to find a sword, I know, another one!, but forgets to mention that it is currently locked in a tower with no way to enter it, and a magical monster protects it. The same monster which has been eating and killing off the population of the local settlements. Simple, right?
Well, it turns out, the gentle big man Hadrian, who has a big heart and can't stop himself from wanting to help people, might have gotten them in a bigger mess with much higher stakes than he could have possibly imagined. The always practical, laconic and seemingly cold-hearted Royce reluctantly agrees to help as well and neither one of them were properly prepared for the mortal danger lurking after sundown...
The village is very pathetic! It is sad to see the difference between the way the big city rich folks live and the rustic poverty the rest of the people have to deal with. Thrace Wood is a farmers' daughter and until couple of weeks ago, she had a family, of which the monster have not killed only her father, as of yet. SHe is desperate to keep him alive, and her quiet strength and determination in the package of a diminutive and naive young woman is very compelling and wondrous to read about. We also get to see Princess Arista once again, a character which is still in its formative stages. She is learning about herself as she is discovering how treacherous the world around her can be. Her lessons come with a lot of loss and disillusionment as well... Despite her still not being who I believe she could be, I love this character and am looking forward to her reaching her potential.
Of course, Royce and Hadrian steal the show with the power of their personalities. Hadrian shines in this one and the reader can truly appreciate the differences in the two men, while enjoying how they compliment each-other in every way. Another strong and dubious character shows up again and the Wizard Esrahaddon brings in that enigmatic, wise, mystery man type of vibe to the story. We also get to hang out a bit with the weapon-obsessed Dwarf, whom I feel a bit sorry for at times and I am sure it will break my heart eventually, since the Dwarfs are not very good matured, to say the lest...
This volume takes the already familiar to us political intrigue and shows its place in the much bigger picture of the machinations of the Church of Nyphron to tear down and then restructure the world's governing system in a manner which will give them full control of the vast human population. We also start getting some idea of the current miserable situation for all the Elf descendants in this land and learn some history, which speaks of much better times for them in the far past... It is very fascinating to read this after having the first two books of the Legends behind, because we get to see how truth gets warped in the telling and how much it depends on who controls the narrative... After all, it is his-story, the one told by the victors...
I loved this book just as much as I did the first one, despite this being a bit darker. I will fervently recommend it to everyone who loves a good Adventure or a Fantasy story!!! You will not be disappointed:):):)
I wish you all happy reading and may you find what you need in the pages of a good book!!!

Thanks for visiting my page! I'm Michael J. Sullivan, and I first opened the door to my imagination with typewriter keys while playing hide and seek and finding a black behemoth when I just ten years old. These days I use computer keys and write classic fantasy and sci-fi with unlikely heroes.I'm thrilled with the reception my books have received, and delighted that they have appeared on more than 150 best-of or most-anticipated lists including those compiled by Goodreads (4 Choice Award Nominations), Barnes and Noble, and Audible.com. Here's a bit about my series:
THE LEGENDS OF THE FIRST EMPIRE: A new adventure begins 3,000 years in the past
Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between men and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now, only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer. Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom. And Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people. The Age of Myth is over; the time of rebellion has begun.
THE RIYRIA REVELATIONS & CHRONICLES: The best friendships are forged in blood.
They killed the king. They pinned it on two men. They chose poorly.
There's no ancient evil to defeat or orphan destined for greatness, just two guys in the wrong place at the wrong time. Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, are enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they're framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy that goes beyond the overthrow of a tiny kingdom, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery before it's too late. NOTE: Three Riyria books were nominated for Goodreads Choice Awards.Do you enjoy audiobooks?
