Today we’re talking about The Emerald Storm. It’s the fourth book in Michael J. Sullivan’s series The Riyria Revelations. So far, I’ve loved every single novel and I hope that continues with this one!
The Plot (as found on Goodreads):
A MESSAGE IS INTERCEPTED. A SINISTER PLAN LAUNCHED. TWO THIEVES STAND IN THE WAY.
Ex-mercenary Hadrian Blackwater sets course on a high seas adventure to find the lost Heir of Novron. His only hope lies in confronting the ruthless and cunning Merrick Marius. Fearing Hadrian is not up to the challenge, Royce Melborn joins his ex-partner for one last mission. Their journey finds them adrift amid treachery and betrayals forcing Hadrian to face a past he had hoped to never see again.
Four books down, two more today. I’m happy to report that we’re still going strong and Sullivan nailed it once again.
I was a tiny bit hesitant going into this book because it’s mostly set on a ship on the sea. See, thing is I come from a landlocked country, so I know nothing about ships or sailing. Sometimes it’s a tad difficult for me to fully get into stories like that, especially when authors decide to hit you with nothing but nautical terms (that I simply don’t understand). Anyway, Michael J. Sullivan made this book so thrilling and enjoyable!
By now I’m convinced that Sullivan could write literally anything and it would be good. I absolutely love The Emerald Storm. It was super thrilling – who’d have thought that you can do so much in such a limited setting? Once again it was impossible to put the book down!Continue reading
