The Crown Conspiracy: The Riyria Revelations

The Crown Conspiracy  - Michael J. Sullivan Lightly detailed, driven by dialogue, comical, and rapidly paced, The Crown Conspiracy falls short as an adult fantasy novel, but for younger readers interested in a lighthearted escape with enjoyable action and memorable characters, they could do far worse than this self-contained start to Sullivan's loosely connected series. The climax is predictable but still entertaining, and characters, while supremely shallow, convey personality and humor that would make good fare for a Saturday matinee. A good choice for young readers exploring the fantasy genre.
