Heir of Novron (#3)

Previous: Rise of Empire

The New Empire intends to mark its victory over the Nationalists with a bloody celebration. On the high holiday of Wintertide, the Witch of Melengar will be burned and the Heir of Novron executed. On that same day the Empress faces a forced marriage, with a fatal accident soon follow. The New Empire is confident in the totality of its triumph but there’s just one problem—Royce and Hadrian have finally found the true Heir of Novron—and they have their own holiday plans.

When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first books of his Riyria Revelations series online, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere. 

Heir of Novron 
is the final volume of The Riyria Revelations and includes Wintertide and — available for the first time — the final volume, Percepliquis


“[HEIR OF NOVRON] delivers a fun story with plenty of sword fighting and some genuine surprises.”

Publishers Weekly

“What started out as a straightforward fantasy adventure in The Crown Conspiracy has evolved into a full-blown epic in Percepliquis.”

Fantasy Literature

“HEIR OF NOVRON is the conclusion to the Riyria Revelations, cementing it in a position as a new classic of modern fantasy: traditional in setting, but extremely unconventional in – well – everything else.”

Drying Ink

“Fans of the first two volumes, then, will be comforted to know the Riyria Revelations come to a close in fine fashion. Sullivan will have kept a few twists up his sleeve to the very end, while we as readers will have been enthralled by the extraordinary deeds of Royce and Hadrian. I heartily recommend HEIR OF NOVRON and its predecessors to fans of classic epic fantasy tales.”

LEC Book Reviews

“All in all, I have to say that the two novels together as the omnibus HEIR OF NOVRON are just plain awesome. No two ways about it.”
