Among the book covers that I liked lately are those done for the novels in The Riyria Revelations series. I like the simplicity of these covers and the link with the story, “The Crown Conspiracy” and “Avempartha” feature the places found in the central attention of two lovely characters, Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater. I just finished the second novel in the series, “Avempartha”, and I can say that I am pleased when it comes to the connection between the story and the cover artwork. Another very interesting thing is that the artist of the covers is none other than the author of the novels, Michael J. Sullivan. Considering all these aspects and the fact that I enjoyed the first two novels, the third announced title of the series, “Nyphron Rising”, immediately caught my attention and I am very curious to see where these adventures will take me next. Adding the synopsis of the novel and I can easily say that “Nyphron Rising” is one of the titles I am looking forward to read until the end of the year.
War has come to Melengar. To save her realm, Princess Arista must reach the leader of the Nationalists and convince him to join forces. She turns to two trusted mercenaries to provide escort, but finds the team on the verge of dissolution.
Hadrian is tired of his lecherous profession and longs for a just cause. Royce knows a secret which could provide his partner a life’s purpose greater than anything his friend could imagine…but is it true? Or is an ancient wizard using them as pawns in his own struggle for power? To unravel the truth Royce convinces Hadrian to join him for one last mission—what they discover could change the future for all of Elan.
