A daughter vanishes. Two rogues are paid a fortune to find her. It isn't enough.

When Gabriel Winter's daughter mysteriously disappears and is presumed dead, the wealthy whiskey baron seeks revenge. Having lived in Colnora during the infamous Year of Fear, he hires the one man he knows can deliver a bloody retribution - the notorious Duster.

Ride with Royce and Hadrian as the cynical ex-assassin and idealistic ex-mercenary travel to a mysterious old-world city filled with nobles claiming descent from the imperial aristocracy. Riyria's job appears easy: discover what happened to the missing duchess and, if she lives, bring her home . . . if not, punish those responsible. But nothing is simple in the crowded, narrow, mist-filled streets of Rochelle, where more than one ancient legend lurks.

"Michael J. Sullivan satisfies my desire for intimate, character-driven stories, and regularly manages to keep me reading well into the wee-hours of the morning." -- Fantasy Book Review

"Riyria has everything you could possibly wish for: the characters are some of the best I've ever encountered in fantasy literature, the writing is top notch, and the plotting is so tight you'd be hard-pressed to find a mouse hole in it. It also has one of the most satisfying endings of any series Ive read." --Barnes & Nobles Fantasy Blog

This is probably the best of the Riyria Chronicles thus far. It delves deep into the workings between the classes and shows so many aspects that have not yet been explored by MJS. It also takes the time to introduce us to characters that we have met before in the Revelations. It is packed full of action, adventure, and is all around a really good time.

I love the dialog that he writes - snappy banter between comrades, deep and heart felt at other times. Michael J. Sullivan always delivers an excellent tale with compelling characters. I am so glad he continues to bring us more of Royce and Hadrian adventures.

If you have not read Michael J. Sullivan's Riyria Series, Disappearance of Winters Daughter is not the first book to pick up in the series, as the plot of the book is simultaneously a prequel and a sequel to many other books that Mr. Sullivan has written. However, if you have read the Riyria Revelations, then Disappearance of Winters Daughter is a must read! First, some of the characters developed for the book including Evelyn Hemsworth are characters I wished Michael J Sullivan had created earlier, so we could get more stories starring her as a random companion to Hadrian and Royce. This story allows us to really look at the lives of the half-eleven, the Belgic, and the other peoples of Elan in a way that some of the Revelations speed through. Additionally, you can tell that this book is the 16th book Michael J Sullivan has written in Elan because I don't think world building and dialogue has ever been better. I cannot recommend this book enough. Come for another great adventure with Hadrian and Royce, stay for Evelyn, jiggery-pockery, and great conversations about unicorns (ONCE YOU READ IT, IT WILL MAKE SENSE).
