Death of Dulgath Audiobook pre-order is live!

I know a lot of people are as excited as I am about the newest Royce and Hadrian book, The Death of Dulgath.  The beta process has been going spectacularly well, and we are quickly approaching the copy edit stage.

The good people at have let me know that the pre-order page for the book has gone live, so you can reserve your copy now.

As you can see, it will (a) utilize the same amazing artwork as the print and ebook (which was created by the incredible Marc Simonetti), and (b) will once more be narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds.

Robin has done an amazing job wrangling the beta readers and I've already started making changes based on their feedback. Thank you to all those who are participating. You're making a good book even better, and I'm grateful for your generous time and talent.  Here's some of the input we've received from those who have completed the full read.

I think this is a very well told original story. It had everything I love about Riyria.

Hadrian and Royce are as fantastic as ever. This was so much fun.

I SOOO LOVE THIS BOOK. After I'm done with this survey I'm going to reread it.

A combo of great characters and a terrific story well told. 

Great story with memorable characters.

Good to see our old pals again. A great story, loved The First Empire references.

It was like being 'back home'. I hated that the series ended (as all must, eventually) and wanted more. This was right on!

It's a busy time, especially for Robin who is bearing the brunt of a lot of the work. But one that is also very rewarding because I couldn't be happier with the results. I can't wait until others have a chance to read or listen to the book.


  1. "The First Empire references"? What First Empire references? o_O

    1. The First Empire is a new series by me. Like Riyria, it's also set in Elan but 3,000 years before the time of Royce and Hadrian. Through it I'll be able to explore the truth of the myths that people in "modern day" Elan have come to know about their past.

      That series is being published by Del Rey and the first book in that series, Age of Myth, will be releasing June 7th, 2016.

    2. I know all of that. :) I was just wondering how it's possible that there are First Empire references in The Death of Dulgath, and how that beta reader could recognize them...
