The Death of Dulgath - Michael j Sullivan

When the last member of the oldest noble family in Avryn is targeted for assassination, Riyria is hired to foil the plot. Three years have passed since the war-weary mercenary Hadrian and the cynical ex-assassin Royce joined forces to start life as rogues-for-hire. Things have gone well enough until they're asked to help prevent a murder. Now they must venture into an ancient corner of the world to save a mysterious woman who knows more about Royce than is safe and cares less about herself than is sane.

My thoughts:
All I could think about was how I could not remember how the Heir of Novron ended! I remember..no, I can't. I need to re-read. SO yes I know these take place before that. But I have forgotten things so this one revelation was all, I did not remember all of that. I knew about Royce, but the rest was lost in time.

Anyway. Royce and Hadrian are hired to protect...well sort of...the Lady of Dulgath. I do feel like this one can be read on it's own. He creates a nice tale that makes you want more, but you also feel fine just jumping in. I only wanted more since I know something happened at the end of Novron but that is years ahead of this story.

Royce is awesome, I love him.
Hadrian is more the happy shiny people person. Yes you are a nice friend Hadrian, but Royce ;)

So they have an adventure. Get into trouble and on to new adventures! A good story, and I need more! I still have not read the series taking place 3000 years in the past ;)

Good fantasy

  1. That's good that you could catch up to speed even if you didn't remember things.

  2. Seems this was a good one, it is always a worry going in when you feel you don't remember but as you say a prequel and satisfying so what more could a reader want.

  9. I always hate when I can't remember what I read in the earlier books - because even if the author does a great job writing the book, it always bugs me I can't remember.
