A puppet is crowned. The true heir remains hidden. A rogue's secret could could change everything.War has come to Melengar and once more Royce and Hadrian are hired to make a desperate gamble and form an alliance with the Nationalists who are fighting the Imperialists in the south. But Royce has plans of his own and uses this opportunity to discover if an ancient wizard is using Riyria as pawns in his own bid for power. To find the truth, he must unravel the secret of Hadrian's past--what he discovers may end their friendship and break Riyria in two.And so continues the next volume of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.

From the Author:

In many ways, the The Riyria Revelations is the story of two rogues who become unlikely heroes as they find themselves in the midst of the political shifts in the world in which they live.  For myself, who knows the arc of the entire series, I've always considered the series to have four main protagonists: two men and two women.  

The women in Riyria take a little longer to get to center stage, but the reader is rewarded with living through the events that shape them into what they will become...strong characters who stand toe-to-toe with their male counterparts. Much of their transformation comes in Rise of Empire and it was very rewarding to see the butterflies that emerge from the cocoons of this book in the final installment, Heir of Novron

That's not to say that Royce and Hadrian don't have their own trials and tribulations.  The middle books are an interesting time in the friendship of Riyria.  Hadrian's growing frustration with his profession has left him melancholy and desirous of a new vocation.  As independent as Royce likes to portray himself, losing Hadrian will be his only tether to a civilized life, and he is haunted by his old rival Merrick Marius and ties to a past he would like to forget. 

Middle books are tricky things...the wonder of the world (as shown in the first books) has worn off, and the exciting conclusion is far in the distance.  How then, to make a middle book gripping and entertaining?  For me, it was using the middle books to expand beyond Royce and Hadrian and give the readers a peek into the broader implications of the events and how the world of Elan is evolving.  Also, I held back key details about our duos past, exposing their histories a bit at a time, so much of this book explores the roots of both of these fascinating men.

I do hope you will enjoy this next installment in the series.  As I mentioned in my Author's note from the first book, my intention was to escalate the tension, and deepen the mysteries with each book so by the end of this story you should be deeply invested in where the books are going.  I promise you a conclusion that will tie all the threads together and answer all the questions that Rise of Empire starts to expose.  Buckle up...it's going to be a wild ride!

Michael.
