Maybe Chris can confirm this but it would appear than only the Audible version is coming out Dec-5th ahead of ebook or paper version. I'll probably end up doing the audio opening day.


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I hope the ebook or physical book releases around the same time; really looking forward to this!


Timelord Iain | 14948 comments The Question answered on the book page by Sullivan says audiobook and ebook release worldwide and paperback mailed personally in US & Canada... Hardcover if Kickstarter funds... so I think ebook should appear on or before December 5th as well...

I don't have to worry... still haven't found time to start Theft of Swords yet...


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments You must start them, Iain. So good!

So excited for this!


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I'm about to back the kickstarter for this. Can't wait to get it!


Samir (royceblackwater) | 842 comments I backed the kickstarter for this and I will get the digital copies pack on Dec 5th so I'm definitely starting then.


Sarah | 494 comments My patience isn't going to hold to wait for everyone to read this, but I will chime in on discussions once others get going.

Chris  (haughtc) | 1633 comments Wow, didn't even see this thread until Sarah bumped it up today.

Digital packages are out for Kickstarter backers. Physical books should be out in December, I believe.

It does look like the audiobook is up for release on Audible on Dec 5.

I had missed it to until I was looking at the by month list of BR!
I backed the kickstarter so I have the digital already. Its why I'm not sure I can hold out until the normal release!

Aaaah I missed the Kickstarter. Some of Michael's emails end up in my primary email folder and some of them go to the promotions folder... all the ones about the Kickstarter went to promotions (which I never check). :(

I bought the pre-release of the audiobook on Audible a month ago.


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 996 comments I read and really enjoyed this one.

Through chapter 3. Nothing really to talk about yet. Solid Ryeria world building but nothing epically good or bad.


Sarah | 494 comments I'm up to chapter 11. Really interesting so far.


Sarah | 494 comments Please tell me others are reading this.
I NEED to talk about all the feels this book is causing.

I'm up to chapter 21.


Frank | 650 comments joining late, starting tonight. Can't wait to jump in.

I’m almost done. I’ll post some thoughts tomorrow.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I'm working crazy hours this week (finals at the university I proctor for) so I haven't gotten far. But I'm loving it already.

Yup, so many cozy feels when it comes to these two. <3


Frank | 650 comments Just getting into it, thru Chapter 5, enjoying a new tale of Hadrian and Royce, like coming home again.
Interesting the revelation of (view spoiler)

I loved that part too.


Sarah | 494 comments Ok, so some of my comments/observations/feels

Ch. 3
(view spoiler)

Ch. 10
I really, really should have seen this one thing coming. (view spoiler)
The other one was very well played. (view spoiler)

Ch. 12
Unicorns. Talk about the last thing you would expect either of these two to use as a metaphor for something.

Hadrian said. “The truth is, we’ve done nothing wrong.”
Royce closed his eyes and shook his head. “By Mar, the way you think. It’s . . . it’s . . . I honestly don’t know if there’s a word for it. You realize the truth is rarely important, right?”--- I love how after all this time Royce still finds Hadrian cheerful & optimistic outlook so exasperating.
Also, I loved how the guard was amused by them. And how they both answered in the affirmative for the other.


Ch. 17
(view spoiler)

Ch. 21
(view spoiler)


Sarah | 494 comments Ch. 28
The line about Hadrian throwing his cloak out the door gave me serious Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels images. I couldn't help it. I actually snorted at that.

Ch. 29
(view spoiler)

All in all I really enjoyed this adventure with our boys.
If Mr. Sullivan decides to write more about them, I'm so in.
If he doesn't, well I'll pout about it but we certainly have some good adventures with these guys already.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I finished last night and really loved this one, of course. These two are fantastic.
