The Crown Conspiracy - Michael J. Sullivan *Read this and other reviews on my book blog here.*

I haven’t read fantasy books for a while now. I just don’t like them...I LOVE them!
I am always afraid to start a book that seems interesting because I think I will stop my every other work in order to finish that book first. This is what pretty much happened after I started reading [b:The Crown Conspiracy|4345290|The Crown Conspiracy (The Riyria Revelations, #1)|Michael J. Sullivan|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1313141264s/4345290.jpg|21574260]. One of my Goodreads friends is the guilty!
A friend of mine recommended this book to me and I started reading it after which my fear became true. I had started piling up my assignments, being late for mealtimes just so that I could finish it. To be honest, I have no problem with the length of a book if it is a good one. But thank goodness it was not as lengthy as other fantasy stories or my studies would have gone camping in forest!
The concept of stealing and re-stealing of a bunch of letters seems to me quite interesting. I am not a fan of ‘thy-thou…’ type of language in conversation, and I am happy the author didn’t use one. I am not fully satisfied with the character portrayals though. I feel there was much space left unfilled. But I guess more will be revealed as the series progresses. I have just finished this one from the series and a few pages from the next one. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to spend a good 4-5 hours (the time it took me to finish this including). It may not be long enough, but the story is pretty awesome.
