The Emerald Storm 
Michael J. Sullivan

A message is intercepted. A sinister plan has been 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 his friend is not up to the challenge, Royce Melborn joins his old partner for one last mission. Their journey finds them adrift amid treachery and betrayals forcing Hadrian to face a past he hoped never to see again.

The Emerald Storm is the fourth book in the captivating Riyria Revelations. Instead of a string of sequels this six-book fantasy series was conceived as a single epic tale divided into individual episodes. All were written before the first was released so that plot elements are intertwined, yet each book has its only story and conclusion.

NOTE: The Emerald Storm is permanently out of print as a stand alone book and will now be included in the Orbit (Fantasy Imprint of Hachette Book Group) Omnibus edition: Rise of Empire .

Riyria Revelations Series


"In the space of a short year and a half, Michael Sullivan has moved from a small press debut author that featured in one of my first "Indie Spotlight Reviews" to a "name" in the fantasy field who sold-out his first novel and is getting both critical acclaim and fan appreciation...The Emerald Storm is an A++ and a top fantasy of 2010. " -- Liviu Suciu, Fantasy Book Critic

"So far, The Emerald Storm is my favorite book of the series. There are a few elements reminiscent of classic adventure literature, a who-done-it mystery, a pirate tale, and a thriller-type plot twist or two. I particularly enjoyed the warrior-tribe culture of the land of Calis." -- Greg Hersom, Fantasy Literature

"For fans or for newcomers to the Riyria Revelations, The Emerald Storm is a breathtaking read that manages to invoke the spirit of classic literature - from the Odyssey type journey of the Storm's crew, to the foreign jungles and violent trek that invoke images of Heart of Darkness...The ending will leave you itching for the next book" -- Lisa Hurley, SciFiGuy 

"I can't suggest these books enough.  They are light-hearted yet deep.  They are fast paced and involving.  They remind me of old-school adventure fantasy and political spy thrillers. These are the quintessential fun summer-time reads that I find so enjoyable when the heat index rises and the days grow longer lending themselves to lots of reading by the pool.  It's a heady mix, and I sincerely hope you give yourself a few hours to give them a try." -- Ruled by Books 

"Sullivan does a particularly good job about making you care about character’s new and old...They [The Riyria Revelations] continue to touch upon familiar tropes of the sword and sorcery genre while managing to infuse an originality and vitality to the proceedings that is nigh impossible to ignore...Really folks, you should be reading this series."-- King of the Nerds
