Review: Heir of Novron

Heir of Novron (The Riyria Revelations, #5-6)Heir of Novron by Michael J. Sullivan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

By Mar, that was f'ing phenomenal! And now it's over...doh!

Perhaps part of my subliminal reason for putting off finishing this series for so long was that I didn't want it to end. Whatever, that's bullshit. I was just being lame. This should have been devoured upon release!

Wintertide was the best book in the series. Yes, out of six 5-star efforts, this is the one I'd put (slightly) above all the others. The twists and turns, and the climax - wow!

Percepliquis was a slight letdown, but only because Wintertide was so intense. This was the epic coming together of all the loose threads of the series, and it delivered. Oh, if that title is tough to pronounce, I believe we could subtitle it The Fellowship of the Horn.

Yes, we get an all star lineup (of sorts) as the cast is picked out to complete the final job of Riyria. And then a dungeon crawl! All sorts of beasties and more revelations (hence the title of the series), and more climaxes than a holiday night in Medford House.

Sad to see it come to a close, but it did so in top form. Kudos, Mr. Sullivan. This is a series that will definitely be revisited.
