War is raging in Melengar. To save her kingdom, Princess Arista hires Royce and Hadrian to perform a dangerous mission behind the enemy's lines. Royce begins to suspect that they are being used as pawns in the wizard Esrahaddon’s shadowy struggle for power. The thieves journey to the ends of the world amid treachery and betrayals and Hadrian is forced to face a past he hoped never to see again.



"This series is thrilling, laugh-out-loud-funny, heartbreaking, chilling, and whip-smart at every turn." ( Fantasy Faction)
"Hair-raising escapes, flashy sword fights, and faithful friendship complete the formula for good old-fashioned escapist fun." ( Publisher's Weekly)

A fantastic Trip

I really loved this. It's certainly as good as the Theft of Swords books, and I'm well into Heir of Novron by now. I did subtract a star because Rise of Empires leaves too many loose ends, a feeling I didn't have after the first two books (i.e. Theft of Swords). I don't mind a few loose ends, but this time, it just didn't seem -- complete -- for lack of a better word.

Again, I listened to the extraordinary narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds, who brings all the characters to life wonderfully.

I admire the world building in this series, and I love the characters. I would write more to both, but there'd be spoilers, so I have to restrain myself.

Suffice it to say, that the locations are fantastic, and that I love the variety. I do suffer with our heroes, but I laugh, too, because once again, the story doesn't lack humour, and I frequently found myself grinning.
