The Crown Conspiracy, a medieval fantasy novel reminiscent of Harry Potter and C.S Lewis. It is a heroic adventure suitable for both young adult readers and general audiences. This is the first published work by author Michael Sullivan, of Fairfax VA and is book one of the multi-book saga: The Riyria Revelations. The series is told through six novels conceived as a single epic tale. Across the entire chronicle, mysteries build, characters evolve, and plots thicken, but each is self-contained and can be read independent of each other. In the first episode, the reader is introduced to Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, who make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles until they become the unwitting scapegoats in the murder of the king. Sentenced to death, they have only one way out…and so begins this epic tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend. The Crown Conspiracy was released October 1, 2008 and immediatly gained acclaim. On May 30, 2008 at BookExpo in Los Angeles it was recognized as a Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year Finalist in the category of Fantasy/Science Fiction.
A great read
I liked the book, I liked the main characters and villains were described brilliantly. I found it kept me reading, as I could almost see the characters, very good personalities and well described. Over all, it kept my interest and I'm glad that I read it. I can see where this can be a continued series...
