This week celebrates the first major market release of Michael J. Sullivan's The Riyria Revelations series. Let's just call today and the next 2 days the 3 Days of Riyria as it will be all about Michael J. Sullivan's The Riyria Revelations series, which Orbit is re-releasing in 3 omnibuses with the next two to follow in December and January. To start us off the kind folk at Orbit Books have given me the chance to giveaway two sets of the first two omnibuses Theft of Swords and Rise of Empire, which contains the first 4 books of the series. Quite a boon I say for such a fun series I've enjoyed thoroughly so far. Here is the brief blurb for Theft of Swords to whet your appetite:
Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles – until they are hired to steal a famed sword from the palace of the king and find themselves caught up in a conspiracy to overthrow the empire. Sentenced to death, they have only one way out, to get involved in the plots of the nobles and save the kingdom from itself.
Can one thief and his master swordsman of a friend keep their heads above water long enough to survive? Much less solve the mystery that threatens to topple the crown itself?
…and so begins this epic tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.
