    2. I have a problem with fantasy. I do like the genre, but I can't stand multi-volume epics with 900+ pages per volume. I don't like spending 25 pages in a cave or 150 pages fighting a battle. I don't need a six-page description of a tavern. I don't like struggling to figure out how a name is pronounced. Since the fantasy genre seems to be dominated by what I don't like, I tend to approach it with extreme caution. In my opinion, fantasy authors and publishers could take some lessons from Michael Su [...]

    3. *** 4.25 ***A buddy read with my friends at BB&B!You know how some authors feel like they are working on your wave-length​? Well, I think MJS is one of those for me. I love his storytelling style, natural and easy, never jumping into melodramatic nor falling to pedestrian. It is always just the way my senses need it to be. And this is exactly how I like my Fantasy Adventures to be told - with a perfect feel for timing, pacing and a sense of humor. Add an exceptional talent for banter and u [...]

    4. Sorry, guys. I know this is one of the big successes of the self-publishing fantasy biz, but wow, was it not for me. The story lagged, the dialogue was beyond wooden, most of the characters whiny and emotionally immature. It took a good couple of books after this one to get the taste of bad fantasy out of my mouth. Note: The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement. You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the [...]

    5. The Crown Conspiracy is perfect for readers who enjoy epic fantasy, but in a smaller package. When you have the time and energy for a 500 or more page epic, why not? But if you want a good historical fantasy tale that is shorter but doesn't lack what you enjoy in the genre, then it's great to find one. This is a good choice if you have encountered that dilemma. When I developed a renewed taste for fantasy as an adult reader, I looked at different fantasy novels that many established fans of the [...]

    6. I'm all about grim dark , complex, dense epic fantasy, I really didn't think i'd enjoy this as much as i did. The world building was well done, Elan is a beautiful world with rich history and myths. To me the best aspect of this novel was how well defined the characters were. Royce, Hadrian, Alric, Myroneven the antagonists, they all had unique personalities. As for the story itself, its been a while I've felt this compelled by a book. I couldn't put it down once I started. Given the recent stri [...]

    7. An enjoyable enough book, but nothing that wowed me. It was generally well-paced, but it also wasn't a book that I couldn't put down I think one of my complaints was that there wasn't really a lot of character development - it's very much a plot-based book. Which is fine, for what it is - I just, personally, tend to prefer more depth in characters. I felt it was kind of standard "reluctant thief, jovial merc, brat prince thrown into power Go!"There were also a few little technical points which a [...]

    8. Okay, in the spirit of complete disclosure I actually read Theft of Swords which includes this book and Avempartha. Last night however I finished The Crown Conspiracy and have to say I'm exceedingly pleased.Of late I've read a string of mediocre books. They weren't "bad", I didn't hate them but neither could I get into them. Often I'd get to the point I just didn't care. That's not the case here and if the quality holds up I may become a fan of Mr. Sullivan.The characters here are not only "well [...]

    9. I loved this book! So much fun, but not without a harsh brutality that lends weight to the story and truth to the world they live in. I adore Royce and Hadrian and find myself invested in them in a way I haven't been in a long time. The other main characters were equally endearing in their own ways and I was never too impatient to get past their stories to get back to my favourites. I feel like there is still a huge amount to discover about Royce and Hadrian in the following books and I can't wa [...]

    10. This is just the type of book I needed, a fast paced light fantasy read.It was refreshing to read a fantasy book without complex world building, complex magic systems or tons of different characters. This was just pure classic fantasy.One issue I had was the dialogue which throughout this felt awkward and forced, also lots of plots in this felt to easy for the characters and I never really felt they were in any real danger. Mayron was my favourite character and he must be protected at all cost.

    11. 16Mar2012: the 6th book finally came out in Jan of this year, so I'm re-reading the series in order. I hadn't realized it had been 3 years since I first started reading this series. I didn't read it in order nor did I read the final copy, except this book. I started out by ARC reading book 2, then read this book, then ARC read the rest of the series except book 6. IOW, I get to read this just for fun this time & enjoyed it very much.-------4April2009: It's a fun, quick fantasy read. The sett [...]

    12. A while ago I read The Viscount and the Witch which was really great. I really liked Royce and Hadrian, they made me laugh many times throughout that short story. Writing a good short story is quite a feat that only few authors have. The Crown Conspiracy was even better than I had expected. Royce and Hadrian are really great characters, they make a very interesting (and hilarious) team. While Hadrian is a righteous ex-soldier, Royce is a cynical thief with a devious mind, and these two guys make [...]

    13. Is this a tribute to Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser? If not, it should be.This book has received a fair share of glowing reviews, with reviewers praising, among other things, its lack of unnecessary exposition. And it is an enjoyable book, for the most part. However, some attention to detail would not have been amiss.Is this a Young Adult novel? I’m not sure. Everything is just skimmed over. We hardly have any idea what anybody looks like or how things work. This is a shame, really, since there ar [...]

    14. Jako , jako dobro .Imao sam neki blagi osjećaj da će mi se priča dopast . Pravo osvježenje u žarnu i stvarno se radujem drugom dijelu .Priča sama po sebi nije nešto epski , ali opuštajuće je . I baš zbog toga ima veliki plus . Nema milion likova kojima moram pamtit imena , njihovu istoriju itdEY KILLED THE KING. THEY PINNED IT ON TWO MEN. THEY CHOSE POORLY.Pored jako dobre priče , knjigu krase i likovi .Ne pamtim , kad me je neki duo u fantasyju toliko nasmijao . Odličan par ! I Myr [...]

    15. Michael J. Sullivan's Riyria Revelations are an entertaining, fast paced and very welcome addition to the ranks of modern fantasy. Sullivan combines the character and world-building skills of Fritz Leiber with the plotting and humour of Dashiell Hammett.

    16. “It’s those thieves, those damned thieves,” the Earl of Chadwick called out as he ran after Braga. “They’re demons! Magicians! Evil mages! They are like smoke, appearing and disappearing at will.”Hadrian and Royce are Riyria - professional thieves extraordinaire. They steal from the rich, and give toe other richor whoever's rich enough to pay for the job - usually nobles who want special items from other nobles. And they say thieves have no honour!This is sword and sorcery - rogues a [...]

    17. I so enjoyed this book.d it's all due to what it lacks!So much sword and sorcery fantasy these days feels like it has to be uber-descriptive. They remind me of the frozen turkeys that when you unthaw them just drain off water they have been 'plumped up' with. So it was with great pleasure that I read this book: Despite an evil plot to overthrow the throne, sinister manipulations, secret prisons,a bratty prince and princess, an uber-magician, and a tenacious dwarf, the book seemed as refreshing a [...]

    18. Unexpectedly, I liked this one very much. Hadrian Blackwater and Royce Melborn, infamous Riyria thieves, find themselves framed for the murder of the king. Whoever had the bright idea to pick those two to pin the crime on was a moron of epic proportions. Royce and Hadrian stand not for such nonsense.Not a kind of epic fantasy I usually love. On the top of my epic fantasy list are authors like Steven Erikson and Mark Lawrence, with meatier writing and as for thieves and their masterful schemes, [...]

    19. It has me very interested in continuing the story for sure. It is really a 3.75 stars, but at this stage I can't give it a 4. I am hoping, from reading all of my friends comments that the series develops well. I can see that happening. There has been some very nice character building (the narration on audio is excellent), but I really want to see a development of said characters now to push this story into the 4 star realm. Secondly, I want to see a bit more depth to the story, this did feel at [...]

    20. Absolutely brilliant. Captivating. I fail to find the words to describe this books awesomeness. And the book series are complicated I first put this on my currently reading list then realized I had theft of the swords book. Later after finishing the half of the book, I realized it was actually this book and it was a collection of two books. And I am putting this book on my read list, because I want to vent about my feelings. Hadrian and Royce are thieves for hire. They are infamous and are known [...]

    21. Overall this story is more like 3.5 star for me with promising development of a series. There are many introductory explanations about the setting and backgrounds, either by telling or showing, coated with the plots. This approach is both good and bad. The good thing is, this approach gives reader promising big unexplored Riyria Universe, so I believe a lot of readers crave for more. But on the other side, this approach is sacrificing the story itself into a mediocre one. The main story is prett [...]

    22. A fast paced and entertaining story, set in a classic fantasy world. If you are looking for a quick, fun and relaxing read, this book is just perfect.

    23. Looking for a fun book to read, which will take your mind off your daily problems? Look no further, as Michael J. Sullivan’s Riyria Revelations does just that. I am no fantasy aficionado and quite frankly haven’t really delved that deep into this genre. However, I can say without any hesitation that while this book may not be great as per fantasy nerd standards, it does make you enjoy every moment that you spend reading it. This is a short book and only the first in the series, therefore it [...]

    24. Thrilling, Captivating, Amazing are some of the first words that came to mind when I finished this book last night. I stayed up late into the night to finish this book, so that is a sign that I loved it. One of the better sword and sorcery books that I have come across in a while. This book was a take back to the fantasy books that have quests, magic, and great characters and plots. At first I wasn't sure if I was really going to bond with any of the characters, but to my delight I found myself [...]

    25. After plowing through a few grimdark novels of significant size this year, I was thirsting for something less mentally exhausting and more fun to read. Enter Riyria! And what a breath of fresh air this has been.The Crown Conspiracy is probably the shortest in the series making it a really quick read. It is good introduction to the Riyria duo, Hadrian and Royce, who seemed to be more than what they appear to be on the surface and were complete opposites. Barely 3 chapters in and I was already hav [...]

    26. Kompetentno, ali jedva nešto više od toga, bar za sad. Priča jeste opuštajuća, ali je takodje na nivou jedne od prosečnih epizoda CSI-ja i njemu sličnih, ali ta narativa koja bi trebalo da povezuje svih šest odvojeni epizoda (objavljenih iz ekonomskih razloga u tri knjige) obećava i sigurno ću se vratiti da dovršim serijal. Očekivao sam više, i od likova (koji iako simpatični ne ostavljaju utisak jer nema dovoljno tihih momenata) i od priče, ali bar se brzo čita i opuštajuće je [...]

    27. The Crown Conspiracy – Michael J SullivanI will admit, that over the last few years I have grown away from the fantasy genre, so this book sat in my “to be read” pile a bit longer than it should have. However once I opened it up, I was thrilled with the story. What we have here is a very well thought out tale of intrigue… regicide, battles over the throne, conspiracy, and two thieves thrown into the mix keep the story line moving at a rapid pace. A short summary: Two expert thieves are c [...]

    28. Wow. I can't say this was a surprise after reading all the positive reviews of this book, but I can say that I was impressed. A wonderful first novel from the author, and I am very much looking forward to Book 2.I love the witty banter between the characters, especially that between Hadrian and Royce. They reminded me a bit of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, but have a style and flair all their own. I look forward to more adventures with them as well as their friends from the Rose and Thorn. One thi [...]

    29. See my review (with spoilers) of the book itself. This re-read was for the audio version.The book itself was right on the cusp between 4 and 5 stars. I originally gave it 4, then bumped it up to 5 after I'd given it time to sink in.So why 4 now? This 4 is for the audio experience only. The story is still just as good. The reader wasn't bad, and I didn't struggle with him really, but at the same time he didn't wow me like some readers I've listened to in the past. I've also read books 2 & 3 i [...]
