2 Days Left to Get Theft of Swords on Sale


As part of their "First in Series Sale" Audible.com has Theft of Swords on sale for just $6.95. If you haven't started listening to Riyria on audio, this is an excellent chance to give it a try.  This volume is an omnibus and so you will receive two full-length novels (The Crown Conspiracy and Avempartha) for less than $3.50 each. But you have to hurry the sale ends 11:59 PM tomorrow (Sunday)!


Tim Gerard Reynold's narration really shouldn't be missed. If you're not sure if you want to take the plunge. You can check out either of these free short stories. They are a great introduction to the world of Riyria (and Tim as the narrator) so you might want to listen to them first. Each is right around an hour and you can access them by clicking on the covers below.




Several years have passed since the war-weary mercenary Hadrian and cynical ex-assassin Royce joined forces to start their thieves-for-hire organization better known as Riyria. Things have gone well enough for the team as they do "jobs" for various nobles throughout Elan. Usually that means stealing something, but when a young heiress asks them to steal her…well, that's a first for the pair. All is not as it seems, but Royce is determined to get the bottom of what's actually going on. After all, he has his professional integrity at stake.

Originally released in the Blackguards anthology published by Ragnarok Publications, this is a standalone short story of 10,800 words (1 hour 18 minutes listening time) . No prior knowledge of The Riyria Revelations or The Riyria Chronicles is required to enjoy it to its fullest, making this a perfect introduction for new readers or a chance for existing fans to spend a little more time with old friends.




WHO WILL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH? 

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

This is a standalone short story of 7,200 words (54 minutes listing time) . No prior knowledge of The Riyria Revelations or The Riyria Chronicles is required to enjoy it to its fullest, making this a perfect introduction for new readers or a chance for Riyria veterans to spend a little more time with old friends. The Jester is a story of adventure, bonds of friendship, and a recognition that the choices we make dictates the future we find.
