The Crown Tower

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
August 2013
12 hours 51 minutes
Michael J. Sullivan garnered critical raves and a massive readership for his Riyria Revelations series. The first book in his highly anticipated Riyria Chronicles series of prequels, The Crown Tower brings together warrior Hadrian Blackwater with thieving assassin Royce Melborn. The two form a less-than-friendly pairing, but the quest before them has a rare prize indeed, and if they can breach the supposedly impregnable walls of the Crown Tower, their names will be legend.

Wish I would have found these books before reading the theft of swords but better late than never. Like the series. The characters keep me interested in the story The narrator does a good job with the voices. Entertaining to say the least.

After I finished reading the whole series of Riyria Revelation, I have a completely fell in love with Hadrian Blackwater, and I was so sad to say him goodbye and then I found out there was more of Hadrian. So far I am completely happy with this book it was worth of my time I love the storyline #Hadrian#love

As always, an amazing book read by an amazing narrator. Michael J. Sullivan brings our two favorite characters together as only he could. And Tim Gerard Reynolds breathes real life into all of the incredible characters.

My first introduction into Sullivan’s world. Great characters and development. The stories of the characters are intertwined in a way so that you are never left with a longing to just get through one group to get to the other. They are all intriguing and never used as fill.

I got this book as a VIP award not really my preferred genre so my rating reflects this. I would suggest this book is essentially Harry Potter for adults. That said perhaps my lack of preference for a book of this type gives review more credibility? The book is well written, the character development is well thought, and thus is an entertaining read. The narration was superior.
