Inhaltsangabe

Three times they tried to kill her. Then they hired a professional. She hired Riyria.

When the last member of the oldest noble family in Avryn is targeted for assassination, Riyria is hired to foil the plot.

Three years have passed since the war-weary mercenary Hadrian and the cynical ex-assassin Royce joined forces to start life as thieves for hire. Things have gone well enough until they receive the odd assignment to prevent a murder. Now they must venture into a forgotten corner of southern Avryn - a place whose history predates the empire. As usual, challenges abound as they try to anticipate the moves of an unknown assassin before it's too late.

But that's not their only problem. The countess of Dulgath has a dark secret she's determined to keep hidden. Then there's the little matter of Riyria's new employer...the Nyphron Church.

From the best-selling author of The Riyria Revelations comes the third installment of The Riyria Chronicles. Although part of a series, it's designed to thrill both new listeners and Riyria veterans wishing to reunite with their favorite rogues.

Hadrian and Royce on a quest to save a fairy

Michael J. Sullivan did not disappoint me. The Death of Dulgath, the third book of the Riyria chronicles is as entertaining as its predecessors. Of course this is not Pulitzer prize stuff, but it is just fun to hear more from Hadrian Blackwater and Royce Melborn. The witty and snappy banter, their dare devil attitude and the quality of good old fashioned story telling make it hard to put the book down or stop listening.

The story might be a little bit less violent this time, but this did not diminish its quality. Royce is still as vicious as ever and good natured Hadrian might have even gotten a bit more naïve, but both of them throw all their principles over board, when there is an opportunity to help a damsel in distress. Only this time the damsel is the last member of an old noble house and targeted for assassination, but even more disturbing is the dark secret this lady is sharing with Royce.

This is phantasy as good as it gets.

Not great, just good

Not so good as other books from this storyline, but a good read nonetheless! I had hoped for a little bit more tieback to the other plot lines, and maybe some more old secondary characters... I nevertheless I hope the author doesn't make this the last Riyria iteration!

Riyria and more about the Lore

Plotwise it's the best of the Riyria Chronicles. It also adds some more explanations of elven lore. Additionally hilarious Royce and Hadrian banter and ... situations.
