Here is where we can discuss The Crown Tower by Michael J. Sullivan chapters 18-22.
DO NOT post any spoilers from further along in the book, this is just for chapters 18-22.


Becky (beaktastic) | 86 comments So, I've finished it :) Me likey. I wish there had been a more final ending scene with Royce, Gwen and Hadrian, but... meh. I still enjoyed it.


Shaad Zaman (shaadzaman) | 234 comments Mod

Michael (michaeljsullivan) | 84 comments @Becky - you are like my wife and daughter who pleaded with me for a "convalescence scene." I just thought that it was more dramatic ending as I did. (Actually the original ending was right after Gwen declares "I have you," but Robin was afraid that it might be perceived as a cliffhanger if I didn't explicitly explain they survived their wounds. Plus, it let me expose something about Pickles that I would have left for another future work.

Michael (michaeljsullivan) | 84 comments @Shaad & Becky - I'm glad you are excited. Just 7 days and 8 hours. Not that I'm counting. Incidentally that is my birthday ;-)

I liked the final Arcadius and 'Pickles' scene, but yes, like my wife I think I would have liked a convalesence scene, but I do appreciate a good dramatic ending. I think I'm a quite a bit like your wife after reading your foreword where you mentioned that she begged for more Hadrian and such :) Love Hadrian.

And I cannot wait for the next one! Ahhhh! Also, happy birthday in advance :)

Amy (amanahan) | 16 comments Hooray! Rose and Thorn out today! I just bought the kindle edition, but does anyone know if the Audiobook will also be out soon as well? The Crown Tower audio was out almost as quickly as the print edition, but I can't find any info on R&T.


Shaad Zaman (shaadzaman) | 234 comments Mod

Michael (michaeljsullivan) | 84 comments Yours came in "after the fact" and is stuck behind a big bunch of shipments for the Hollow World kickstarter - but Robin is working through all the shipments as fast as she can.


Shaad Zaman (shaadzaman) | 234 comments Mod
