This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater, make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles-until they are hired to pilfer a famed sword. What appears to be just a simple job finds them framed for the murder of the king and trapped in a conspiracy that uncovers a plot far greater than the mere overthrow of a tiny kingdom.
Can a self-serving thief and an idealistic swordsman survive long enough to unravel the first part of an ancient mystery that has toppled kings and destroyed empires?
And so begins the first tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.
When author Michael J. Sullivan self-published the first books of his Riyria Revelations, they rapidly became ebook bestsellers. Now, Orbit is pleased to present the complete series for the first time in bookstores everywhere.
Theft of Swords was originally published as: The Crown Conspiracy and Avempartha.

This book is awesome
Great read! Murder, vivid sword fights, mystical and I even laughed a few times. Highly recommend.
This book is truly amazing! I love fantasy and this book ranks as one of the greatest stories I've read. It has it all - political intrigue, an epic quest line, and great humor. If that's not enough, the world building skill of Sullivan is just mind-boggling! Move over Martin and Sanderson, make room for Michael Sullivan as one of my favorite authors.
