Publisher's Summary

Hadrian, a warrior with nothing to fight for, is paired with Royce, a thieving assassin with nothing to lose. Together they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown Tower is the grandest fortress ever built and home to the realm's most prized possessions. But it isn't gold or jewels that their employer is after; if he can keep them from killing each other, they might just get him his prize.

rubbish! but i liked it

like my TRex records, this is simple juvenile nonsense but i enjoyed it.
the novel is full of holes and the plot is at time unbelievable -but i loved listening. sadly the authors little dialogue at the beginning has convinced me that he is just a poor writer who thinks he is better than he actually is. However, that said i loved listening to this and the other stories with Hadrian and Royce.
No where near quality or GRR Martin or Abercrombie..but read this -or listen and enjoy it-i didi. incidentally i listened to Bernard Cornwell's Pagan Lord in his Saxon series and the sheer quality in comparison to Sullivan was obvious, like FORD KA compered to a Volkswagen Touran ..if you want a quality Epic try Brian Ruckley

Excelent Prequel or Sequel to the Riyria series

Having listened to the other three books in the series I was at first disappointed that I hadn't started with this one as it technically comes before the three books in the series chronologically speaking.
But I wasn't disappointed when I listened to it as it fills in things alluded to in the revelations books and also stands on its own as a very well written book. Whether you have listed to to Revelations series or not you will enjoy this immensely.
The author narrates his own introduction to the book which I thought added a personal touch as he explains his reasons for writing the prequel after the Revelations series and give us some insight into how he views the charters etc.

If you are unsure about reading the Revelations trilogy which are incredibly good value in terms of length give this a read as it's only 12 hours long and if you enjoy it you can look forward to the rest of the series.

If you are like me and have read the other three books and enjoyed them you will love this book. Can't wait to listen to some more.
