Publisher's Summary

Three times they tried to kill her. Then they hired a professional. She hired Riyria.
When the last member of the oldest noble family in Avryn is targeted for assassination, Riyria is hired to foil the plot.
Three years have passed since the war-weary mercenary Hadrian and the cynical ex-assassin Royce joined forces to start life as thieves for hire. Things have gone well enough until they receive the odd assignment to prevent a murder. Now they must venture into a forgotten corner of southern Avryn - a place whose history predates the empire. As usual, challenges abound as they try to anticipate the moves of an unknown assassin before it's too late.
But that's not their only problem. The countess of Dulgath has a dark secret she's determined to keep hidden. Then there's the little matter of Riyria's new employer...the Nyphron Church.
From the best-selling author of The Riyria Revelations comes the third installment of The Riyria Chronicles. Although part of a series, it's designed to thrill both new listeners and Riyria veterans wishing to reunite with their favorite rogues.

At the beginning of this listen is a word from the author. He states he does not want to wear out the welcome of these 2 wonderful characters. I agree that there is nothing sadder than to see much loved characters wear thin. However, that is not the case here!! This story is every bit as rich and colorful as the first book in the series. Whenever Mr Sullivan gets the urge to continue this story I say MORE PLEASE!!!!!!!
Prior to reading this book I went back and re-listened to the whole series and enjoyed every minute of it. I am sure I will reread them again in the future. This is one of the finest series of books available in this genre and I have read a lot of them.
I can't leave without also giving a huge thumbs up to Tim Gerard Reynolds. I can't imagine anyone else who could have given a better voice to these stories!

Another Excellent Edition

This series remains one of the best in this genre, and this most recent edition is fully up to the standards that come before it... Royce and Hadrien are two of the best characters in the genre as wll... The humor, especially the off center examples, are priceless... The narration could not be done any better... The story itself is really quite poignant, and the plot lines are thrilling and intriguing to any fan... The saddest thing is knowing that this series is likely finite and some point we'll have to say goodbye to these wonderful characters and stories forever... Until that I'm gonna enjoy the hell outta the ride...
