Free eBook: The Crown Conspiracy by Michael J. Sullivan

Posted by Simcha 7:48 PM, under | 2 comments

I've been wanting to read Michael Sullivan's The Crown Conspiracy for ages and so I was really excited when I discovered the audiobook today on Podibooks (it's not new to the site though, I just haven't been to Podibooks in a long time). I am already on chapter Four and I'm enjoying it immensely. In addition to being a very captivating story, the narrator, Nathan Lowell, does an excellent job of reading it. 



They killed the king. They pinned it on two men. They chose poorly.

There's no ancient evil to defeat, no orphan destined for greatness, just two guys in the wrong place at the wrong time. Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles until they become the unwitting scapegoats in a plot to kill the king. Sentenced to death, they have only one way out…and so begins this tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.

The Crown Conspiracy is book one of the six-book saga: The Riyria Revelations. Eschewing recent trends toward the lengthy, gritty, and dark, the Riyria Revelations is a return to traditional fantasy combining great characters, humor, and drama in appropriate measures. The series is told through six novels each a separate episode in a single epic tale . Across the entire chronicle, mysteries build, characters evolve, and plots thicken, but each is a self-contained story that can be enjoyed in its own right.

To listen to The Crown Conspiracy audio book just click on this link.

And if you enjoy the book you have the option to donate a little something (or not so little- up to you) to Podibooks, the majority of which will go to the author.

I'm now trying to think up some more chores that I can do so that I'll have an excuse to keep listening to this book...

I wanna read this one...but yes read not listen :/

I'm glad you got a chance to listen to the podiobook version. Unfortunately...it has now been taken down. You see the series was sold to Orbit (Fantasy Imprint of Hachette Book Group) and they are putting out audiobook versions of the entire series which meant we had to remove the "free" version -- sorry about that.
