Riyria Revelations

A Listmania! list by Michael Sullivan "Author of The Riyria Revelations & Chronicles: Theft of Swords | Rise of Empire | Heir of Novron" (Fairfax, VA)
The list author says: "The Riyria Revelations is an epic fantasy written by myself, Michael Sullivan. It follows a cast of characters set in the fictional world of Elan. Instead of a string of sequels, this six-book fantasy series was conceived as a single epic tale divided into individual episodes. All were written before the first was released so that plot elements are intertwined, yet each is self-contained and can be read independently from each other. With this series you will not be held hostage to read the next one--you will simply want to.

The series was actually released in two different format. The six-volume version were published through two small presses (AMI and Ridan, which is owned by my wife). Orbit (fantasy imprint of big-six publisher Hachette Group) re-released it as a trilogy. The original books are now out of print, and sold only by collectors.

A prequel series, The Riyria Chronicles will be released by Orbit in August 2013. It starts with The Crown Tower in August and The Rose and the Thorn in Sepember."
