    May2012: Read it again in preparation for the final book of the series & really enjoyed it, even though I knew what was coming. Great! Sep2010: Again, I had the privilege of reading an ARC & enjoyed the experience tremendously. Sullivan took me for another great ride. I'd hi...

    One of the things that make the Riyria Revelations different is that they were conceived as a single tale, told in six installments. Each book could stand alone, but they are oh-so-much better when the reader builds on the story that came before. Another outstanding quality is that the...

    Another enjoyable read. Love how all the women characters just grew to be better, wiser even when all hell was breaking them down this book showed a lot of growth with Arista, Modina, Amilia and a few other women characters. I enjoyed that Michael J Sullivan added more to the women cha...

    I finished this a few days ago but hadn't taken time to review it. I must say that I have enjoyed this series and can recommend it. This series and these characters are so well done I'm very glad I found it. I'd had it recommended to me some time ago but never got around to reading it....

    In all of the series I seem to have problems with the construction of some of the characters and their ulterior evolution, but, maybe, it`s only a personal thing. In one moment some of them are the most despicable and feared across the land, in the next one, they`re dead- easyyy as a p...

    4 stars This is a fine fantasy novel that moves the larger story of the Riyria Revelations forward and continues right where Emerald Storm left off. This book is mostly Hadrian's show and that is ok by me. His character continues to make huge decisions based on his moral judgemen...

    In truth, this is a rather hard review for me to write because I enjoy this series so much. I feel like there isn?t much I can say besides, ?I love it! I love it! I love it!? ? but that?s not much of a review. In previous books, Sullivan has been hitting homeruns, but with Wi...

    That?s the only series I always want to re-read after finishing a part of it. It?s amazing! I so love the writing style, care about the characters (even small side ones) and how much the world develops throughout the series. Plus, the story was thrilling and interesting again. And ...

    What kind of characters do you like? Do you like them to be tortured, tormented and fail at everything they do? If so, then this series is just for you! By best advice for this series: cheer for the bad guys, hope that everyone dies, and you won't be too disappointed. The bad guys...

    I haven't time to write a full review so I am going to keep this brief. If you haven't started this series yet, you NEED TO. For five books now we have followed the journey of Hadrian and Royce. I must say, for the amount of books involved, Sullivan has kept this story very tight. W...

    You ripped out my heart Mr. Sullivan. You ripped it out from within my rib cage in a matter of pages. You just shoved your fist into my chest, got a hold and just... ripped it out. Just like that. And then you took out your dagger and started cutting it, strand by strand, in front of m...

    Binge reading certainly did not do justice to this series. Either that or this book is the best of the series. Either way, this book is a winner. There is still a lot of politics to wrap your head around and a lot less of Royce and Hadrian comical banter as they spend the majority of t...

    Best book in the series so far! It had it all. Easy 5 stars! I finished it a while ago but RL(being very hectic) prevented me from posting accurate updates since I'm mostly listening to the audiobook and using the omnibus edition. I'll try to write a proper review at some point. ...

    These books just keep getting better. The writing is better, the characters have developed some depth and complexity, and even though things have gotten a little darker, it?s still not dark fantasy ? and that?s a good thing for this series I think. And it?s ditto what I have...

    "Happiness comes from moving toward something. When you run away, ofttimes you bring your misery with you." I had a feeling going into this one that it would break my heart and I was right. Something had to go wrong eventually. Well, I mean, stuff had already gone wrong, but somet...

    Oh Mr. Sullivan how I hate you but love your writing. I just finished Wintertide and I feel like you have just ripped out my heart. Yet I love the fact that your writing can have such a powerful effect on me, that you can write such amazing characters that make me feel so deeply. Bu...

    The imagery in this book was fantastic. I don't know how else to say it. I'm a big fan of worldbuilding when it comes to fantasy, and Michael did an excellent job 'taking' the reader to Wintertide and feeling, smelling and hearing what goes on during the festival. And like the previous...

    Initially, I thought I would rate these books by their two part bind ups, but I've changed my mind. This book needs to receive the individual attention and 5 star rating it deserves, no matter what part 6 may bring. This series has had its ups and downs, overall I love the characters ...

    The atmosphere becomes darker here, with some horrendous scenes right out of my worst nightmare. That mustache-twirling church went overboard at times. And what's with that holy idiot squirreling away his enemies in prison? It would make more sense to just execute most of them. Plot co...

    What! It's over? It's short. Everything is great but short. I want more. "White's pawn takes queen and bishop." Epic. And I kinda figured about what the prophecy was going to be. But killing loved ones are wrong. Writers please don't build intense romances and kill off the c...

    FREAKING TERRIFIC!! This is definitely the best of the series so far. The stories told in such a way that it kept me on edge all damn time and the scene of Royce and Gwen in the ending......., pretty sure I died there. WOW Michael, WOW. ...

    I know what it means to be alone, I sure do wish I was at home. I don't care what the neighbors say, I'm gonna love you each and every day. You can feel the beat within my heart. Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part. ...

    Given how the series was progressing over the past 4 books, I wasn?t surprised to find myself gushing at the end of Wintertide and giving it a stonking 5-stars! The story really started to soar by now with Hadrian and Royce finally arriving into Aquesta where Empress Modina ?reigns...

    I literally read this in one setting!!!!! ?Royce, listen to me. You have to hang on. Don?t let go. Don?t you dare let go. Do you hear me? Are you listening to me, Royce Melborn? You have to hang on, Royce. Please? give me your hand. Give me your hand!? I almost died when h...

    Again it was quite predictable. I think that Michael's style of writing gives away what's going to come... at least for me. but this took me back to a time long ago when I was reading the Harry Potter series. The reason it took me back was because I don't think I've cared so much for c...

    Absolutely fantastic! This is the 5th book in a series so I don't want to spoil anyone :) (view spoiler)[My boyfriend Hadrian is still alive... I thought he was going to die - wait does he die, or does Royce die and that's why Sullivan only made prequels instead of just continuing w...
