Orbit Announces New Michael J. Sullivan Novel | The Crown Tower

crowntower-2-5The Crown Tower will be the first book in the Riyria Chronicles series, and the whole series is a prequel to Michael’s Riyria Revelations, which Orbit published for the first time in print last fall.

The Riyria Chronicles will tell the stories of Royce and Hadrian’s adventures before Theft of Swords. If you’ve read the Riyria Revelations series and wondered about the allusions to earlier romps, you’ll now be able to read all about them. . .

You can find some additional information about the new series on Michael’s blog:
Michael Sullivan is a local author here in Washington DC and someone I’ve read quite a bit of. His previous series, Riyria Revelations was originally self published and went on to be a big hit both before and after Orbit purchased the rights. I reviewed it earlier this year. I have to admit I was hoping Sullivan’s next work would take him away from Riyria, but we know how publishers love proven intellectual property. So, here we go. . .

Here’s the blurb for The Crown Tower:
Two men who hate each other.
One impossible mission.
A legend in the making.

A warrior with nothing to fight for is paired with a thieving assassin with nothing to lose. Together they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown Tower is the impregnable remains of the grandest fortress ever built and home to the realm’s most valuable possessions. But it isn’t gold or jewels the old wizard is after, and this prize can only be obtained by the combined talents of two remarkable men. Now if Arcadias can just keep Hadrian and Royce from killing each other, they just might succeed.

So what do you think? Interested? Not?
