The Riyria Revelations, even after two and half years now, is still hands down one of the best series I have ever read. Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, the main characters of this series, are comparable to Holmes and Watson. They're an unlikely team that clicks, getting along almost flawlessly. In the Viscount and the Witch, Sullivan gives us a glimpse of their first year together¿a truly unforgettable encounter. Just give this series a chance, and believe me, you will never regret it nor put it down.

Lessons Learned Before the Revelation

A short story providing us with some of the back story for Royce and Hadrian, from their early days together. Funny, yet somewhat cynical, not surprising if you are familiar with Royce's prejudices and Hadrian's naivety.

    Read First - even if written after the fact

    The book is written well. It provides more insight (clearer picture) into how two unlikely characters met. As much as I enjoyed the series, I wished I had read this one first.

    Color me intrigued!

    *Book source ~ Many thanks to the author for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

    In the world of Riyria Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater are unlikely partners. Royce is a thief and assassin and Hadrian is an honorable soldier determined to see the good in people and to help where he can. Royce decides to teach his new partner a lesson in trusting strangers.

    Ok, I have no idea how these two guys became partners in the procurement business in the first place, but I am officially hooked on this world and on Royce and Hadrian in particular. There isn’t a lot of world-building in this short tale, but what there is only makes me want more. The hook is the back and forth between Royce and Hadrian. The dialogue and dynamics between the two is awesome. I am seriously chomping at the bit to read more and I’m thankful there are several stories about them out there for me to devour.

    What a teaser!

    I liked this little short story; just enough to wet my appetite for the rest of the series! I liked the way the two characters interacted. Will be buying more by this author
