Though I gave the first of Michael J. Sullivan’s Riyria Revelations volumes - Theft of Swords - a review back in November, I never did get around to sharing my thoughts on the second installment, Rise of Empire. In fact, I haven’t really gotten around to review much in the past... two months. This changes today. Lucky you. As I was saying: I never got around to saying anything about Rise of Empire. For the purposes of discussing the final volume of Sullivan’s initially self-published, old-school fantasy epic, let me just say it was a solid follow up to its predecessor. With Heir of Novron, Sullivan brings the ever-enticing tale of Royce and Hadrian to an end with two final adventures that blow the four that came before out of the water. Everyone loves and epic ending to, well, and epic fantasy - Sullivan proves how well he can deliver just such an ending.
