王都の二人組 (盗賊ロイス&ハドリアン) というタイトルで邦訳が出ている。表紙のイラストを見るとラノベ的扱いか。洋書版の表紙は誰が買っても良い雰囲気だけど、日本版は書店で見たら絶対買わない類の本。オーディオブックで出会えて良かった!



Book Review: Theft of Swords (The Riyria Revelations #1-#2)



An infamous skilled thief, Royce Melborn, and his partner in crime, Hadrian Blackwater, are known as Riyria in Kingdoms of Avryn. When they set out to steal a sword from Melengar castle, they are framed for killing the King.


This book is the first book in the Riyria Revelations series written by Michael J. Sullivan. This high fantasy novel is one of my favorites, but I almost gave up on this book at first; it starts really slow, and I had to wade through a Shakespearean-like quaint part before it really got started.


Royce and Hadrian are the antipodes: Royce is a reticent and agile guy who grew up on the streets. Hadrian is chatty, and proficient in ancient swordplay. They successfully stole countless valuables, but they are not evil. As I read, I came to like them very much; the way they conduct misdeeds is elegant, and they help people with their skills. I was fascinated by their illustrious adventures.


All in all, this book is a must read for people who enjoy high fantasy books.


The author said that he intended to start small and end big. This book starts with the conspiracy in a kingdom, but it unravels the mystery of political parties in Avryn, the world of elves, and gods along with the story of Riyria.


This book is the beginning of a grandiose story, and I can’t wait to know more about their world.


YL: 7.5
