Book Review: The Crown Conspiracy February 4, 2011Posted by Jaidis in 5 Tree Reviews, Book Reviews, Jaidis Shaw Reviews.
THEY KILLED THE KING. THEY PINNED IT ON TWO MEN. THEY CHOSE POORLY.
There is no ancient evil to defeat, no orphan destined for greatness, just two guys in the wrong place at the wrong time. Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles until they become the unwitting scapegoats in a plot to murder the king. Sentenced to death, they have only one way out…and so begins this epic tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.
The Crown Conspiracy by Michael J. Sullivan was one wild ride from start to finish. Filled with action, betrayal and mystery, I was either on the edge of my seat with anticipation or laughing at the quirky comedy. The relationship between two of the main characters, Royce and Hadrian, was a pleasure to read. Not only does it have all the elements of a great friendship where in the heat of the moment, battling to save their lives, they still take time out to poke fun at each other…but it has trust and loyalty as well. If Mr. Sullivan can pack this much excitement and adventure into just the first book, I can’t wait to see what he has come up for the rest of the series! I can quickly see this book series working its way up my ‘Favorite Book Series’ list! Keep up the great work Mr. Sullivan!
