Better than the first.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rise Of Empire: The Riyria Revelations (Paperback)
I bought the first book as it was recomended by Amazon - and thought it was good. Not a top one, but a good enjoyable read. The one fault was that Hadrian and Royce did not seem fleshed out enough. This is rectified in the second book, and you get a much better idea about what makes the characters tick. Other characters such as princess Arissa are fleshed out more also.
Like the first book this is split into two seperate stories, which works well. Less gumpf and more plotting/action.
My only gripe is it would have been nice to see Myron the Monk again. He was brilliant in the first book and it's a real same we have not seem him again since. Same with King Alric - it would be nice to see how he is developing as King - but you hardly see him
Overall I recomend this as I did the last one and am looking forward to book 3.
