The Crown Conspiracy is a heroic adventure suitable for both young adult readers and general audiences and is reminiscent of Harry Potter and C.S. Lewis. The main characters are Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater. The two 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. 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 independently of one another. The second book Avempartha is scheduled for release from Aspirations Media, Inc in April 2009. Michael’s work is already receiving acclaim as The Crown Conspiracy was recognized May 30th, at the national BookExpo exposition in Los Angeles when Foreword Magazine named it a 2007 Book of the Year Finalist for fantasy and science fiction.
