Finished reading June 6, 2012.
Another great read from Michael J. Sullivan which has certainly whet my appetite for more. I give “The Emerald Storm” 4 1/2 stars.
I’ve been a huge fan of Michael Sullivan since reading The Crown Conspiracy (found in Theft of Swords), and have thoroughly enjoyed each book that has followed included this one, The Emerald Storm (found in Rise of Empire). The first four chapters have not been a disappointment.
Rise of Empire (Riyria Revelations)
by Michael J. Sullivan @author_sullivan
Royce and Hadrian have been called upon to aid the struggling kingdom of Melengar as it alone stands in defiance against the newly formed empire. As war approaches a desperate gamble behind enemy lines is their only chance at forming an alliance with the Nationalists to the south.
But Royce has plans of his own and uses this opportunity to discover if an ancient wizard is using Riyria as pawns in his own bid for power. To find the truth, Royce must unravel Hadrian’s hidden past. What he discovers will lead them to the end of the known world on a journey rife with treachery and intrigue.
And so continues the second tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.
