Theft of Swords (Riyria Revelations) - Michael J. Sullivan The reviewer’s ethics prohibits me from writing a comprehensive review. You see, I know the writer. Although our acquaintance is exclusively online, through GoodReads, I talked to him. I exchanged opinions with him. I think him a really nice guy, and my attitude towards the man might influence my words as a reviewer, so I’ll say the minimum.
I enjoyed reading this thick tome very much. The story line is solid (actually two story lines, because the book includes two novels); the characters are engaging and original; the pace is just right; and the tension building towards the climax has me salivating as a fellow writer. I wish I were that good. Furthermore, a pinch of humor turns this epic adventure quest into a romp of danger and delight.
Definitely recommended for any fantasy fan.
