"I loved this story and it took all of about ten minutes to devour so it was quick and simple and really whet's my appetite for the final book in the series. Can't wait! An enjoyable romp with your favourite thieves." -- Iceberg Ink
"Interesting, funny, and promising so much for the future (well, past, actually, as this was written after the series proper). The Viscount and the Witch is very highly recommended as a cheap (UK/US) or free way to check out Sullivan's writing, and become hooked on the adventures of Royce and Hadrian.Go. Read. Enjoy. Then go pre-order the rest of the series." -- Civilian Reader
From the Author
It started when she persuaded me to write a short story so that I would have something for readers during the transition between self and traditional publishing. Pre-order pages for Orbit's editions of Revelations had been posted (but not yet released) and my earlier versions were removed to make way. For the first time in years, I had nothing "out there", and since my contract allowed me to produce non-book length works, and because short stories are...well...short, Robin asked me to create an early story staring Royce and Hadrian. The thing is, I'm not very good at short stories. So I decided to approach the task like a chapter--the first chapter of a novel. I went back in time and wrote a simple little tale about Royce and Hadrian meeting Albert Winslow. This would have occurred about two years after the duo first met and hence The Viscount and the Witch came into being and I've published it for free since it's inception.
Revelations had enough momentum, I polled my readers for what other stories they would be interested in and early stories of Royce and Hadrian came out the clear winner and so I'm pleased to announce that in the fall of 2013 two more books will be released in a new prequel series, The Riyria Chronicles.
