Description

One of the genre's favorite pair return in a classic fantasy short for both Riyria veterans and first-time readers.

Several years have past since the war-weary mercenary Hadrian and cynical ex-assassin Royce joined forces to start their thieves-for-hire organization better known as Riyria. Things have gone well enough for the team as they do "jobs" for various nobles throughout Elan. Usually, that means stealing something, but when a young heiress asks them to steal her…well, that's a first for the pair. All is not as it seems, but Royce is determined to get the bottom of what's actually going on. After all, he has his professional integrity at stake.

Originally released in the Blackguards anthology published by Ragnarok Publications, this is a standalone short story of 10,800 words. No prior knowledge of The Riyria Revelations or The Riyria Chronicles is required to enjoy it to its fullest, making this a perfect introduction for new readers or a chance for existing fans to spend a little more time with old friends.

Fast&Easy

I like short stories, I can finish in an evening. The style of writing is that of
Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes...

great intro to the Riyria world

This is the first story of Michael J Sullivan's that I heard/read. It's a great story with some great characters. Loved it enough that I got one of his books. Worth the time if you like fantasy.

A twist you didn't expect.

Funny in the begging & then the first unexpected twist.. It starts to get you wondering in suspense & that's where the second & biggest surprise hits & that makes you at least crack a smile if you don't end up laughing..
~ Review on this site ~
I'm just not sure what book comes next.. I didn't realize the jester was before this until I heard them say about their last job.. Audible needs to show the books in order when they are connected instead of making your customers try and figure it out on my own like I did.. I'm New to all this.. I normally just use my text to speech..

Mediocre addition to the books.

Not bad for a free audio production by Michael J Sullivan, but not as brilliant as the series.

Another Awesome Riyria Story!

I love ALL the Riyria stories and Royce and Hadrian are my all time two favorite "fantasy" characters. I love the dry humor and situations they find themselves in. Even though this was a short story, it had a great plot and interesting characters.

I was so excited to learn there will be another Riyria Chronicles story coming out later this year! Woo-Hoo!

Michael Sullivan, thank you so much for releasing this book for free; it was awesome.

Lustige Story mit charmanten Charakteren

Die Story ist kurzweilig und in sich geschlossen, obwohl die Charaktere aus einer größeren Buchreihe bekannt sind. Die beiden Protagonisten sind interessant und humorvoll. Der Sprecher spricht ein gut verständliches Englisch, ist jedoch nicht sehr variabel in seiner Betonung.

kurzweilig

Leider sind die Stimmen der zwei Hauptpersonen schwer von einander zu unterscheiden. Ansonsten gefallen mir die Geschichten der beiden immer.

Vorgeschmack

Ich habe den ersten Teil dieser Reihe vor dieser Kurzgeschichte gehört und kann also im Nachhinein bestätigen, dass sie ein super Vorgeschmack ist. Der Auftakt der Reihe hält, was diese Geschichte verspricht!

Fesselnde Kurzgeschichte

Wem Riyria gefällt wird auch diese abwechslungsreiche Kurzgeschichte lieben. Sie ist kurzweilig, spannend, und steckt voller unerwartete Wendungen.
Roice trockene Art ist wie immer köstlich und wieder gewinnt man den Eindruck, dass sich unter der harten Schale ein zumindest etwas weicherer Kern verbirgt, der sich als professional integrity nach außen hin zeigt.
Zwar liebe ich wie David Nathan die deutsche Übersetzung interpretiert, aber auch der englische Sprecher holt sehr viel aus den Charakteren heraus.

Sherlock Holmes and Watson in Riyria

Michael J. Sullivan’s “Professional Integrity” is a free download and since I did not read any of the Riyria Chronicles, I have to judge the story on its stand-alone value. Loyal Riyria readers have the benefit of meeting old friends and might get a lot more out of this small narrative.

The story is nicely written and I enjoyed the banter of the 2 protagonists, nothing outstanding, but entertaining enough. The storyline is a little bit construed and not very logical, but phantasy readers are used to that. To me the two protagonists, Royce and Hadrian, appeared to be medieval copies of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Royce regardless of his grumpiness and cynicism is the deep thinker, who has everything figured out already, while Hadrian jumps to conclusions and has a weakness for damsels in distress.

The two ex-mercenaries get through life by thieving and contract work for nobles, but to their astonishment, they are asked by a charming young woman to kidnap her. In spite of Royce’s misgivings they take the job and are drawn into an adventure with werewolves, false priests and noblemen and mischievous servants.

All in all a nice tale, especially since it is for free.
