Fans of magic, sword clashes, and valiant heroes will welcome this second volume of the Riyria Revelations series. Rise of Empire is divided into two books: Nyphron Rising and the Emerald Storm. Here we find Royce and Hadrian on a new adventure, this time to enlist the Nationalists of the South to help the weakened and threatened kingdom of Melengar.
Royce has suspicions that an arcane sorcerer is manipulating their quest, but in order to discover the truth, he must first decode the past of his partner Hadiran, and this is a history Hadrian would rather keep a mystery.
Both like-able and realistic, the personalities of Royce--a young man with cocky swagger and mean sword fighting skills--and Hadrian--his counterpart with a more straight laced, wise demeanor--play well off of one another throughout the series and have become beloved heroes to fans worldwide.
In this audiobook, narrator Tim Gerard Reynolds once again sparks the imagination of listeners with his vibrant storytelling talents.
