Note: Nyphron Rising has been replaced by Rise of Empire a two-book Omnibus edition that contains both Nyphron Rising and the Emerald Storm.                   

A PUPPET IS CROWNED. THE TRUE HEIR REMAINS HIDDEN. A ROGUE'S SECRET COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING.

War has come to Melengar. To save her kingdom, Princess Arista runs a desperate gamble when she defies her brother and hires Royce and Hadrian for a dangerous mission. As the power of the Nyphron Empire grows, so does Royce's suspicion that the wizard Esrahaddon is using the thieves as pawns in his own game. To find the truth, he must unravel the secret of Hadrian's past--what he discovers may end their friendship and break Riyria in two.

ABOUT THE SERIES
Nyphron Rising is the third book in the captivating Riyria Revelations. 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 book has its only story and conclusion.

REVIEWS
"The Riyria Revelations is shaping up to be one of the most original and entertaining fantasy series I've seen in years." -- King of the Nerds Fantasy Reviews

"Another absolutely riveting installment in The Riyria Revelations series! Once again, Michael J. Sullivan did not disappoint. There was suspense, humor, action, treachery, and even a tiny bit of love thrown in."
-- Ramblings & More

From the Author:

In October 2010 I sold my Riyria Revelations series of books to Orbit (fantasy imprint of big-six Hachette Book Group). As such, the original versions are now officially "out of print" and available only by third-party vendors who are selling what are now essentially "collector editions".  Orbit took the six-book series and re-released them as three, two-book omnibus versions (published from Nov 2011 to Jan 2012).  The fact that the series is published in two different formats is often confusing, so here's how the books break down.

Original self-published editions (now out of print)

  • The Crown Conspiracy (originally published by AMI, and later by Ridan)
  • Avempartha
  • Nyphron Rising
  • The Emerald Storm
  • Wintertide
  • Percepliquis*
The new incarnation of the series from Orbit 
  • Theft of Swords contains The Crown Conspiracy and Avempartha
  • Rise of Empire contains Nyphron Rising and The Emerald Storm
  • Heir of Novron contains Wintertide & Percepliquis
Due to overwhelming demand for more Royce and Hadrian stories, a new series, The Riyria Chronicles, has been created that tells the duo's early adventures including their first assignment and the forming of Riyria. This new series will also be released by Orbit following their "a book per month" schedule.

The Riyria Chronicles
  • The Crown Tower - August 1, 2013
  • The Rose and the Thorn - September 5, 2013
For those interested in other projects, I have a number of things underway.
  • Antithesis: an urban fantasy (which I will self-publish in 2013)
  • Hollow World: a time travel science fiction story (to be completed in 2012)
  • A new (untitled) fantasy series: (to be completed in mid 2015)
  • A Burden to the Earth: a literary fiction piece (completed but needs editing)

In addition he will have short stories in the following anthologies:
  • Traditions in Triumph Over Tragedy
  • The Jester in Unfettered
  • Autumn Mists in The Fantasy Faction Anthology
  • Burning Alexandria in The End Anthology
* Percepliquis is technically the only book of the original series that is not "out of print." For those who originally read Wintertide this edition allows for the stand-alone version so that they can complete their series. The content is identical to the Percepliquis which is found as the second book in the Heir of Novron release.

About the Author:

Michael J. Sullivan has been successfully published in all three publication paths: small press, self-published, and traditional (big-six).  His debut series,  The Riyria Revelations has sold 70,000 copies when self-published and another 140,000 English copies from Nov 2011 - Jan 2012. The series has also been translated to thirteen foreign languages including: Germany, Dutch, French, and Japan.

Michael's work has been well received by critics and readers alike, earning him hundreds of positive reviews, and more than 25 "best of" or "most anticipated" list mentions. He has attributed much of his success to the fantasy book blogging community. Dubbed "the little indie that could" he found his books pitted as the only independent in major competitions such as the 2010 goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Fantasy and the 2009 Book Spot Central's Fantasy Tournament of Books, which he won. As a traditionally published author he was named to both Library Journal and Barnes and Noble's Blog Best Fantasy of 2011 lists.

Michael has several projects under development: 

  • Antithesis:  an urban fantasy 
  • Hollow World: a time travel science fiction story 
  • The First Empire Series: (to be completed in mid 2014)
  • The Crown Tower: book #1 of The Riyria Chronicles (released by Orbit Aug 6, 2013)
  • The Rose and the Thorn:  book #2 of The Riyria Chronicles (released by Orbit Sep 17, 2013). 
In addition he will have short stories in the following anthologies:
  • Burning Alexandria in The End Anthology (released)
