The New Empire intends to mark its victory over the Nationalists with a bloody celebration. On the high holiday of Wintertide, the Witch of Melengar will be burned and the Heir of Novron executed. On that same day the Empress faces a forced marriage, with a fatal accident soon follow. The New Empire is confident in the totality of its triumph but thereโ€™s just one problemโ€”Royce and Hadrian have finally found the Heir of Novron and they have their own holiday plans. 

Heir of Novron is the final volume of The Ririya Revelations and includes Wintertide andโ€”available for the first timeโ€”the final volume, Percepliquis.
My thoughts:
I am sad to see it end, but the end came. I still felt like this was one of those “I feel like home” books, because it reminds me of the books I first read and fell in love with. Which makes this the style of fantasy that is my first love, and my true love.
While reading there came a point where I just could not get enough, it was when the Percepliquis story started because it meant the end. I could not put the book down, but still I did put it down because at the same time I did not want it to end. I struggled between needing to know! And not wanting to know since then there would be no more. Of course the wanting to know struggle won, that is a given.
It was a good ending to this series and at times I giggled cos it was funny, at times I wanted to shout noo! And at times I said I knew it!! Did I really knew it? Well, I claim I did but in the end I have a million different versions of what might be going on, who might be who and all the rest. The book took me for a merry ride and gave me lots of surprises.
And what about our beloved heroes then? Oh I Heart Royce, but then I have always loved elves. I really fell for Hadrian in this one too because he is so chivalrous and sweet. And there were HEAs too, I do love them. Especially with one couple I did not know would meet. There are so many wonderful characters I would love to mention but that would take time. Though when thinking about what I have read I find myself startled cos I realize that I do not like Modina, I liked Thrace, but not Modina, the empress.
It was a wonderful conclusion to a great series and it had me at the edge of my seat. This is what I want my fantasy to be like, a great cast, a great story, a wonderful world and a rich history. In the end I would sure like to read more from this world, and certainly from this author.
Of course I recommend this series to all. And do not be afraid of the page count, since I know some are. Fantasy books are huge, and this book is actually two books in one if that makes you feel better ๐Ÿ˜‰
I like it, Hadrian ๐Ÿ˜€

    I really enjoyed the first book and keep meaning to get the rest so I'm really glad to see that you enjoyed the rest of the serious. I also really love it when I come across a book that reminds me of the kind of fantasy that first attracted me to the genre. That was the case with The Black Prism by Bret Weeks. Have you read it?
