    "I didn't personally like Rise of Empire as much as any of the Lord of the Rings novels. I did enjoy the alliteration in the title."

    "After reading Rise of Empire, I can't wait to start the next book, Heir of Novron. I was left with just too many questions. I normally don't like to read series books for several books for multiple reasons. However, with this series, I honestly don't want to see this series to end."

    "I got this book as a birthday present and honestly, it just wasn't my type of book. The dialogue seems forced, the plot was contrived and seemed too close to already-existing fantasy worlds like those of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. The market is saturated with these types of books and it doesn't stand out in my opinion."

    "Best book"

    "This style of fantasy, once ubiquitous, has fallen a bit out of fashion recently. You’re more likely to read about a band of marauding mercenaries celebrated as ‘heroes’ than about an actual hero who’s, well, a hero. Well good news for you! If you want to read a different type of fantasy, a fantasy about good guys doing good things, beating bad guys, and saving the day, fantasy books that are decidedly optimistic and upbeat -- tales that bring a smile and grin to your face, not tears by the end of it -- then this is your list. A list compiling the best of the feel good fantasy in the genre."

    "Rise of Empire (Riyria Revelations) is a very OK fantasy series. I enjoyed its plot but the characters, particularly Royce, could have been developed further, in this reviewer's opinion. It's OK for what it is, the series when taken as a whole."

    "Rise of Empire written by Michael Sullivan is the 2nd book in the Riyria Revelations series. Melengar is at war again and the true heir is hidden. This book is a great continuation and you dive deep into another world, a fun read."

    "Rise of Empire is a fantastic novel, War has come to Melengar and once more Royce and Hadrian are hired to make a desperate gamble and form an alliance with the Nationalists whom are fighting the Imperialists in the south. As the power of the Nyphron Empire grows, so does Royce's suspicion that the wizard Esrahaddon is using the thieves as pawns in his own grab for power. I had to go straight on to this and now I'm heading straight to Heir... Exciting stuff. Love the dialogue with Royce and Hdrian, when he's ill, when they are scaling.."
