Once she suffers a fatal accident, the Imperialists will reign supreme. There is just one problem. Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater—the legendary swordsmen—have finally found the heir of Novron, and now it is time to act.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Death traps, magic, long-lost children, and real and decoy heirs abound…A fun story with plenty of sword fighting and some genuine surprises.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Tim Reynolds maintains a tone of engagement as the complex strands from the prior novels in the series are drawn together…Reynolds infuses the characters with attitudes that make clear their social status. Many characters are memorable. Their relationships with their comrades are complicated, and Reynolds shows their ambivalence and affection toward one another, as well as their mutual suspicions.”

    " Heir of Novron is the third book in the Ryeria trilogy after Theft of Swords and Rise of Empire. It did not disappoint. The only disappointment comes when you realize that the trilogy is done. Michael J. Sullivan is a masterful storyteller and Timothy Gerard Reynolds was a great narrator. "

    " Maybe it was because I listened to the Lord of the Rings sountrack while reading it, but the final book in the Riyria Revelations - especially the second half (i.e. book six) - had a much more epic feel to it. Still, the book stayed true to its roots and contained within it the same aspects from the previous books that I had loved, namely diverse and likable characters, wonderful character development, great dialogue, and enough action scenes to keep me thoroughly sated. Whenever I come near the end of a great series, I always feel sad because it means my journey with them has ended. Michael Sullivan has created such a great world and an awesome cast of characters that I really didn't want to finish the books - though not finishing it or even slowing down proved impossible, because of how intense and gripping everything was. I will miss my days traveling with the two main characters (Hadrian and Royce), just as I will miss the many other characters that Sullivan did a great job fleshing out. The pain was eased by the author's announcement of a new series (a prequel). As I've always said, there is really nothing better than a series of books that are so good you get sucked into the world they have created and can't bring yourself to leave. A book that is so enjoyable you can't put it down is worth so much more than any video game or movie. It was midway through the first book that I decided this series had the potential to become my new favorite book series. Having finished, I moved the three books up to the top row of my bookshelf, where I can (and will) display them proudly. Wonderful, wonderful series. "

    " I read this series because I liked the friendship and banter between Royce and Hadrian, but I felt that this final instalment in the trilogy really lost the humor until the end of the book. The end was quite good, though. "

    " 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!! "
