    Update: 12/09/17 Have I really not posted an update since the launch of the Kickstarter? That's so negligent of me...and so much has happened. Okay, so first things first, the Kickstarter was a huge success, it ended up being the 2nd most-backed and 4th highest-funded fiction project o...

    4.5 stars. Riyria has a special place in my heart. While The Stormlight Archive and The Malazan Book of the Fallen fulfill my love for epic fantasy, Riyria (both Chronicles and Revelations) satisfies a different need. The sense of wonder that I obtain from reading Riyria, which ...

    My oh my! RTC once I?m back ...

    This was fantastic! The 10th novel featuring our amazing duo Royce and Hadrian, the rouges for hire known as Riyria. I must say that this is one of my favourites. The story was full of mystery and suspicion. The side characters were colourful and unique. But most importantly, I felt l...

    Step aside Holmes and Watson! There are new detectives in town! As the title of the book suggests, this is a mystery novel, so if you enjoy your fantasy mixed with lot of intrigue and suspense, you?re in for a treat because The Disappearance of Winter?s Daughter brings the best ...

    This is the newest book in the Riyria world and it once more follows Hadrian and Royce, the notorious thieves-for-hire who go by the name of Riyria. They're fairly well-established by this point, and each is notorious in certain parts of the world (if you've read the other Riyria Chron...

    I was given a beta-version ecopy of this book in exchange for honest, thorough feedback. Note that this is not the final version of the novel and might change significantly before it is published. But here we are again. The 4th Chronicle, and 10th overall Riyria book does not disap...

    "Chasing fantasies was a thin thread to justify life, and yet how many wonders had been wrought by people who did exactly that-those who believed in crazy dreams." Wow, I really enjoyed this one! This is the best of the Riyria Chronicles books yet. I've complained before about the C...

    Too short. Great to have the thieves back again but want more. ...

    4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/12/23/... As much as I?m enjoying Michael J. Sullivan?s other series The Legends of the Lost Empire right now, I have to say, nothing quite beats the feeling of coming back to good old Hadrian and Royce. The Riyr...

    Who?s my all time favorite fantasy bromance? For two years it?s been a toss up between Wax & Wayne and Royce & Hadrian. Royce & Hadrian just took the lead :) 4.5 Stars! ...

    GIVE IT TO ME *GRABBY HANDS* Edit 12/29/16: IT HAS A TITLE!!!!!!!! (Also, Michael Sullivan mentioned beta readers??? How does one become a beta reader o.o) Also why are people already rating a book that hasn't even been written yet?? He's only just started writing it and there's ...

    Executive Summary: This book ended pretty strong after a bit of a slow start. Another fun Riyria story. Audiobook: Tim Gerard Reynolds once again his usual excellent job. He is the voice of Royce and Hadrian to me. I was really happy that I could get the audiobook as part of the kic...

    I was privileged to be a beta reader for this. It's probably a 4.5 at this point with just a few niggly bits that need to be cleaned up. Michael is a master of the witty dialogue and twisty plot bits. I found myself wishing this was already in print so I could share all the good parts ...

    This was the most fun I've had for a long time reading a book! My only regret is finishing the book because I want MOOOOOOOOOOORE Royce and Hadrian adventures. It was so great being back with them, I've missed them so much and my love for my precious Royce grows deeper and deeper. ...

    In my pre-review notes?which I seriously want to become like, actually important or interesting in 2018 (the reviews, not the notes)?I have to note a couple things regarding Winter?s Daughter. 1. This is one of my favorite books ever. Yes, EVER. I realize I?m about ready to ...

    First off, I want to thank Michael Sullivan for giving me the opportunity to gamma read The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (Riyria Chronicles, #4). This is the first full-length novel by Sullivan that I have had the chance to read, having listened to The Jester and Professional Int...

    Having finished reading everything Riyria over a year ago (but currently loving the Legends series), it was a pleasure to re-enter the world in this time-period and get reacquainted with Royce and Hadrian! And boy, did this book deliver! After gratefully being able to participate in su...

    A stand alone Riyria novel. The setup: Whiskey baron's daughter marries a Duke then she is kidnapped. The Whiskey baron (Winter) hires Riyria to either get his daughter back or to make whoever is responsible pay. Loved this book! Let's start with: It's a standalone novel. I l...

    Though this book doesn't officially come out until July, I received it early for participating in the Kickstarter for it. It was great to see Royce and Hadrian again. For me this was much better than The Death of Dulgath which was my least favorite of the Riyria books, both from th...

    4.5 stars. This author has become one of my favorites. He writes great characters into great stories about great worlds. Michael J Sullivan brings his two MCs, Royce and Hadrian, to life in a fun and vivid way. I love the sense of humor and the friendship they share, as well as thei...

    I had to ruminate on this one overnight. Royce and Hadrian are some of my favorite characters, but there were a few long-winded new characters that annoyed me. So, it's a very solid 4.5 and I always round up. All the action, humor, and intrigue you've come to expect from the Riyria...

    I fangirl hard over this duo and was over-the-moon excited to read this one a bit early (thanks Kickstarter!) Royce and Hadrian never disappoint. They are thoroughly entertaining, capable, well written. This whole world has a deep, wonderfully woven history. Honestly I feel like th...

    This is one of the easiest 5 stars I?ve given this year. The Disappearance of Winter?s Daughter by Michael J. Sullivan is the 4th book in the Riyria Chronicles and the 10th book in the overall series. It also serves as a standalone and entry into the series. I personally had never ...

    Review also published here The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter was a book I had been looking forward to since, well, since it was still titled Riyria Chronicles 4, unwritten and not even Kickstarted yet. Expectations were high, this being the 10th Riyria novel in total (6 Rev...

    A must read Riyria adventure for any fans of Royce and Hadrian. Michael J Sullivan is on top story telling form in his latest Riyria adventure with a great story, an unusual romance, a terrifying landlady and the thieves usual entertaining banter. (Royce as a unicorn! priceless!) ...

    I?ve been following Michael J Sullivan for a while now, and I am confident enough in liking them that I will buy his books before reading them. Even though this is book 4 of the Chronicles, you can read this first and be fine. If you have read other Riyria books, have fun looking for...

    ?Are you two always like this?? ?He is,? they both said in unison. Perhaps the best Riyria book yet. Both Royce and Hadrian have more depth. Their relationship is more complex. The storytelling, especially the inner dialogue, is superb. Several distinct and distinctive fema...

    Update: 12/09/17 Have I really not posted an update since the launch of the Kickstarter? That's so negligent of me...and so much has happened. Okay, so first things first, the Kickstarter was a huge success, it ended up being the 2nd most-backed and 4th highest-funded fiction project o...

    4.5 stars. Riyria has a special place in my heart. While The Stormlight Archive and The Malazan Book of the Fallen fulfill my love for epic fantasy, Riyria (both Chronicles and Revelations) satisfies a different need. The sense of wonder that I obtain from reading Riyria, which ...

    My oh my! RTC once I?m back ...

    This was fantastic! The 10th novel featuring our amazing duo Royce and Hadrian, the rouges for hire known as Riyria. I must say that this is one of my favourites. The story was full of mystery and suspicion. The side characters were colourful and unique. But most importantly, I felt l...

    Step aside Holmes and Watson! There are new detectives in town! As the title of the book suggests, this is a mystery novel, so if you enjoy your fantasy mixed with lot of intrigue and suspense, you?re in for a treat because The Disappearance of Winter?s Daughter brings the best ...

    Revelations Theft of Swords 4* Rise of Empire 4.25* Heir of Novron 5* Legends Age of Myth 5* Age of Swords 3.5* Chronicles The Crown Tower 3.5* The Rose and the Thorn 5* The Death of Dulgath 4* The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter 4.25* So needless to say I've...

    This is the newest book in the Riyria world and it once more follows Hadrian and Royce, the notorious thieves-for-hire who go by the name of Riyria. They're fairly well-established by this point, and each is notorious in certain parts of the world (if you've read the other Riyria Chron...

    I was given a beta-version ecopy of this book in exchange for honest, thorough feedback. Note that this is not the final version of the novel and might change significantly before it is published. But here we are again. The 4th Chronicle, and 10th overall Riyria book does not disap...

    "I have a friend and I think about killing him all the time." "Oh, so you admit it now. We're friends?" "I never said anything about you. Don't be so presumptuous." Really, what is there to say that I haven't already highlighted in my reviews of the previous nine Riyria book...

    "Chasing fantasies was a thin thread to justify life, and yet how many wonders had been wrought by people who did exactly that-those who believed in crazy dreams." Wow, I really enjoyed this one! This is the best of the Riyria Chronicles books yet. I've complained before about the C...

    Too short. Great to have the thieves back again but want more. ...

    4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/12/23/... As much as I?m enjoying Michael J. Sullivan?s other series The Legends of the Lost Empire right now, I have to say, nothing quite beats the feeling of coming back to good old Hadrian and Royce. The Riyr...

    Who?s my all time favorite fantasy bromance? For two years it?s been a toss up between Wax & Wayne and Royce & Hadrian. Royce & Hadrian just took the lead :) 4.5 Stars! ...

    GIVE IT TO ME *GRABBY HANDS* Edit 12/29/16: IT HAS A TITLE!!!!!!!! (Also, Michael Sullivan mentioned beta readers??? How does one become a beta reader o.o) Also why are people already rating a book that hasn't even been written yet?? He's only just started writing it and there's ...

    Executive Summary: This book ended pretty strong after a bit of a slow start. Another fun Riyria story. Audiobook: Tim Gerard Reynolds once again his usual excellent job. He is the voice of Royce and Hadrian to me. I was really happy that I could get the audiobook as part of the kic...

    I was privileged to be a beta reader for this. It's probably a 4.5 at this point with just a few niggly bits that need to be cleaned up. Michael is a master of the witty dialogue and twisty plot bits. I found myself wishing this was already in print so I could share all the good parts ...

    This was the most fun I've had for a long time reading a book! My only regret is finishing the book because I want MOOOOOOOOOOORE Royce and Hadrian adventures. It was so great being back with them, I've missed them so much and my love for my precious Royce grows deeper and deeper. ...

    In my pre-review notes?which I seriously want to become like, actually important or interesting in 2018 (the reviews, not the notes)?I have to note a couple things regarding Winter?s Daughter. 1. This is one of my favorite books ever. Yes, EVER. I realize I?m about ready to ...

    First off, I want to thank Michael Sullivan for giving me the opportunity to gamma read The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (Riyria Chronicles, #4). This is the first full-length novel by Sullivan that I have had the chance to read, having listened to The Jester and Professional Int...

    Having finished reading everything Riyria over a year ago (but currently loving the Legends series), it was a pleasure to re-enter the world in this time-period and get reacquainted with Royce and Hadrian! And boy, did this book deliver! After gratefully being able to participate in su...

    A stand alone Riyria novel. The setup: Whiskey baron's daughter marries a Duke then she is kidnapped. The Whiskey baron (Winter) hires Riyria to either get his daughter back or to make whoever is responsible pay. Loved this book! Let's start with: It's a standalone novel. I l...

    Though this book doesn't officially come out until July, I received it early for participating in the Kickstarter for it. It was great to see Royce and Hadrian again. For me this was much better than The Death of Dulgath which was my least favorite of the Riyria books, both from th...

    4.5 stars. This author has become one of my favorites. He writes great characters into great stories about great worlds. Michael J Sullivan brings his two MCs, Royce and Hadrian, to life in a fun and vivid way. I love the sense of humor and the friendship they share, as well as thei...

    I had to ruminate on this one overnight. Royce and Hadrian are some of my favorite characters, but there were a few long-winded new characters that annoyed me. So, it's a very solid 4.5 and I always round up. All the action, humor, and intrigue you've come to expect from the Riyria...

    I fangirl hard over this duo and was over-the-moon excited to read this one a bit early (thanks Kickstarter!) Royce and Hadrian never disappoint. They are thoroughly entertaining, capable, well written. This whole world has a deep, wonderfully woven history. Honestly I feel like th...

    This is one of the easiest 5 stars I?ve given this year. The Disappearance of Winter?s Daughter by Michael J. Sullivan is the 4th book in the Riyria Chronicles and the 10th book in the overall series. It also serves as a standalone and entry into the series. I personally had never ...

    Review also published here The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter was a book I had been looking forward to since, well, since it was still titled Riyria Chronicles 4, unwritten and not even Kickstarted yet. Expectations were high, this being the 10th Riyria novel in total (6 Rev...

    4.5 stars. Riyria has a special place in my heart. While The Stormlight Archive and The Malazan Book of the Fallen fulfill my love for epic fantasy, Riyria (both Chronicles and Revelations) satisfies a different need. The sense of wonder that I obtain from reading Riyria, which ...

    This was fantastic! The 10th novel featuring our amazing duo Royce and Hadrian, the rouges for hire known as Riyria. I must say that this is one of my favourites. The story was full of mystery and suspicion. The side characters were colourful and unique. But most importantly, I felt l...

    Step aside Holmes and Watson! There are new detectives in town! As the title of the book suggests, this is a mystery novel, so if you enjoy your fantasy mixed with lot of intrigue and suspense, you?re in for a treat because The Disappearance of Winter?s Daughter brings the best ...

    This is the newest book in the Riyria world and it once more follows Hadrian and Royce, the notorious thieves-for-hire who go by the name of Riyria. They're fairly well-established by this point, and each is notorious in certain parts of the world (if you've read the other Riyria Chron...

    I was given a beta-version ecopy of this book in exchange for honest, thorough feedback. Note that this is not the final version of the novel and might change significantly before it is published. But here we are again. The 4th Chronicle, and 10th overall Riyria book does not disap...

    I was privileged to be a beta reader for this. It's probably a 4.5 at this point with just a few niggly bits that need to be cleaned up. Michael is a master of the witty dialogue and twisty plot bits. I found myself wishing this was already in print so I could share all the good parts ...

    This was the most fun I've had for a long time reading a book! My only regret is finishing the book because I want MOOOOOOOOOOORE Royce and Hadrian adventures. It was so great being back with them, I've missed them so much and my love for my precious Royce grows deeper and deeper. ...

    In my pre-review notes?which I seriously want to become like, actually important or interesting in 2018 (the reviews, not the notes)?I have to note a couple things regarding Winter?s Daughter. 1. This is one of my favorite books ever. Yes, EVER. I realize I?m about ready to ...

    First off, I want to thank Michael Sullivan for giving me the opportunity to gamma read The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (Riyria Chronicles, #4). This is the first full-length novel by Sullivan that I have had the chance to read, having listened to The Jester and Professional Int...

    A stand alone Riyria novel. The setup: Whiskey baron's daughter marries a Duke then she is kidnapped. The Whiskey baron (Winter) hires Riyria to either get his daughter back or to make whoever is responsible pay. Loved this book! Let's start with: It's a standalone novel. I l...

    Though this book doesn't officially come out until July, I received it early for participating in the Kickstarter for it. It was great to see Royce and Hadrian again. For me this was much better than The Death of Dulgath which was my least favorite of the Riyria books, both from th...

    4.5 stars. This author has become one of my favorites. He writes great characters into great stories about great worlds. Michael J Sullivan brings his two MCs, Royce and Hadrian, to life in a fun and vivid way. I love the sense of humor and the friendship they share, as well as thei...

    I had to ruminate on this one overnight. Royce and Hadrian are some of my favorite characters, but there were a few long-winded new characters that annoyed me. So, it's a very solid 4.5 and I always round up. All the action, humor, and intrigue you've come to expect from the Riyria...

    Who?s my all time favorite fantasy bromance? For two years it?s been a toss up between Wax & Wayne and Royce & Hadrian. Royce & Hadrian just took the lead :) 4.5 Stars! ...

    GIVE IT TO ME *GRABBY HANDS* Edit 12/29/16: IT HAS A TITLE!!!!!!!! (Also, Michael Sullivan mentioned beta readers??? How does one become a beta reader o.o) Also why are people already rating a book that hasn't even been written yet?? He's only just started writing it and there's ...

    Executive Summary: This book ended pretty strong after a bit of a slow start. Another fun Riyria story. Audiobook: Tim Gerard Reynolds once again his usual excellent job. He is the voice of Royce and Hadrian to me. I was really happy that I could get the audiobook as part of the kic...

    I was privileged to be a beta reader for this. It's probably a 4.5 at this point with just a few niggly bits that need to be cleaned up. Michael is a master of the witty dialogue and twisty plot bits. I found myself wishing this was already in print so I could share all the good parts ...

    This was the most fun I've had for a long time reading a book! My only regret is finishing the book because I want MOOOOOOOOOOORE Royce and Hadrian adventures. It was so great being back with them, I've missed them so much and my love for my precious Royce grows deeper and deeper. ...

    In my pre-review notes?which I seriously want to become like, actually important or interesting in 2018 (the reviews, not the notes)?I have to note a couple things regarding Winter?s Daughter. 1. This is one of my favorite books ever. Yes, EVER. I realize I?m about ready to ...

    First off, I want to thank Michael Sullivan for giving me the opportunity to gamma read The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (Riyria Chronicles, #4). This is the first full-length novel by Sullivan that I have had the chance to read, having listened to The Jester and Professional Int...

    Having finished reading everything Riyria over a year ago (but currently loving the Legends series), it was a pleasure to re-enter the world in this time-period and get reacquainted with Royce and Hadrian! And boy, did this book deliver! After gratefully being able to participate in su...

    A stand alone Riyria novel. The setup: Whiskey baron's daughter marries a Duke then she is kidnapped. The Whiskey baron (Winter) hires Riyria to either get his daughter back or to make whoever is responsible pay. Loved this book! Let's start with: It's a standalone novel. I l...

    Though this book doesn't officially come out until July, I received it early for participating in the Kickstarter for it. It was great to see Royce and Hadrian again. For me this was much better than The Death of Dulgath which was my least favorite of the Riyria books, both from th...

    4.5 stars. This author has become one of my favorites. He writes great characters into great stories about great worlds. Michael J Sullivan brings his two MCs, Royce and Hadrian, to life in a fun and vivid way. I love the sense of humor and the friendship they share, as well as thei...

    I had to ruminate on this one overnight. Royce and Hadrian are some of my favorite characters, but there were a few long-winded new characters that annoyed me. So, it's a very solid 4.5 and I always round up. All the action, humor, and intrigue you've come to expect from the Riyria...

    I fangirl hard over this duo and was over-the-moon excited to read this one a bit early (thanks Kickstarter!) Royce and Hadrian never disappoint. They are thoroughly entertaining, capable, well written. This whole world has a deep, wonderfully woven history. Honestly I feel like th...

    This is one of the easiest 5 stars I?ve given this year. The Disappearance of Winter?s Daughter by Michael J. Sullivan is the 4th book in the Riyria Chronicles and the 10th book in the overall series. It also serves as a standalone and entry into the series. I personally had never ...

    Review also published here The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter was a book I had been looking forward to since, well, since it was still titled Riyria Chronicles 4, unwritten and not even Kickstarted yet. Expectations were high, this being the 10th Riyria novel in total (6 Rev...

    A must read Riyria adventure for any fans of Royce and Hadrian. Michael J Sullivan is on top story telling form in his latest Riyria adventure with a great story, an unusual romance, a terrifying landlady and the thieves usual entertaining banter. (Royce as a unicorn! priceless!) ...
