" The thrilling conclusion to the Riyria Revelations was nothing short of excellent, and should elevate Sullivan to ... dare I say it ... the ranks of J.R. Tolkien. Hadrian and Royce are once again called upon to save the empire, first from the evil leaders of the Church and ultimately from the conquering elves. Empress Modina and Princess Arista play key roles in unifying people and mounting the expedition to save the world. Even the lesser characters are superb. Friendships, love, anger, loss, triumph, redemption ... all of the classic elements of epic fantasy!! "
