I would recommend reading this before reading the Riyria Revelations books,even though the author wrote it later.

A prequel to Sullivan’s “hugely popular” Riyara Revelations series. If you aren’t already familiar with Royce and Hadrian, I highly suggest you start with the Revelations series first. I should have heeded the advice Sullivan gives in the introduction and done the same. This entire book seems to be nothing more than a heavily contrived attempt to get Royce and Hadrian together. The plot is weak, and there’s so much background and history that first-time visitors to this world (like me) are likely to be overwhelmed and leave feeling rather cheated of an actual story.

Michael Sullivan's initial series the Riyria Revelations was an outstanding effort of simple, adventure fantasy built around a small cast of well-developed characters. Sullivan's 1st prequel, The Crown Tower brings back the same cast of characters, twelve years before the introductory novel Theft of Swords. Like the original series, it is built around the easy-to-latch onto characters Hadrian and Royce, the focus of the original series. The book is a fast-paced read, and highly enjoyable. I recommend beginning with the initial series before beginning the first of what is a planned series of prequels.
