{"_id":"5b4f5708097ccd4029312bd1","title":"The Crown Conspiracy","desc":"<i>THEY KILLED THE KING. THEY PINNED IT ON TWO MEN. THEY CHOSE POORLY.</i><br /><br />The Crown Conspiracy is book one of the multi-book saga: The Riyria Revelations. The series is told through six novels conceived as a single epic tale. Across the entire chronicle, mysteries build, characters evolve, and plots thicken, but each is self-contained and can be read independent of one another.<br /><br />In the first episode, the reader is introduced to Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, who make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles until they become the unwitting scapegoats in the murder of the king. Sentenced to death, they have only one way out...and so begins this epic tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.","cover":"https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1313141264m/4345290.jpg","author":{"_id":"5b4f5706097ccd402931295b","name":"Michael J.

Sullivan, and I first opened the door to my imagination with typewriter keys while playing hide and seek and finding a black behemoth when I just ten years old. These days I use computer keys and write classic fantasy and sci-fi with unlikely heroes.I'm thrilled with the reception my books have received, and delighted that they have appeared on more than 150 best-of or most-anticipated lists including those compiled by Goodreads (4 Choice Award Nominations), Barnes and Noble, and Audible.com.

But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between men and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now, only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer. Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom. And Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people.

They pinned it on two men. They chose poorly.</i><br>There's no ancient evil to defeat or 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, are enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they're framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy that goes beyond the overthrow of a tiny kingdom, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery before it's too late.","image":"https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1433443335p5/2063919.jpg","followers":[],"isPenNameDefault":false},"publisher":"","year":"","isbn":"0980003431","isbn13":"9780980003437","format":"","publication_day":"","status":"Book Published","__v":9,"setting":{"theme":"","title":true},"head":{"fonts":[],"styles":[]},"isDeleted":false,"uploadRequest":[],"quotes":[],"enabled":true,"reviews":[{"id":1,"rating":0,"_id":"5b4f5708097ccd4029312bd5","count":0},{"id":2,"rating":0,"_id":"5b4f5708097ccd4029312bd4","count":0},{"id":3,"rating":0,"_id":"5b4f5708097ccd4029312bd3","count":0},{"id":4,"rating":0,"_id":"5b4f5708097ccd4029312bd2","count":0}],"review":0,"reads":[],"rCount":0,"views":[],"vCount":27,"hashTags":[],"subCatg":[],"category":[],"previewChapters":0,"chapters":[],"comments":[],"coAuthor":[],"uploadedOn":"2018-07-18T15:04:40.041Z","previewChap":0,"isPreview":false,"actions":{"willRead":0,"mayRead":0,"reading":0,"wantRead":0,"read":0,"interested":0},"paywh":{"minAmt":0,"enabled":false},"featuredPara":[],"discount":{"to":"2020-02-18T21:41:41.868Z","from":"2020-02-18T21:41:41.868Z","amount":0},"price":{"rent":{"enabled":false},"payg":{"enabled":true}},"timeLine":[],"trailers":[],"summaries":[],"photos":[],"onlyPreview":false}
