    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.

    Awesome title

    This is quite different to any book I would have expected but still has his own brand of logic and pragmatism that I enjoyed.

    THANKS FOR THE FREE SHORTY

    This free short story by Michael J Sullivan is a wonderful addition to the
    Riyria collection. This is a short and complete Riyria story, and is a good
    introduction to the collection .

    WEREWOLF?

    Michael J. Sullivan has yet to disappoint me. This is my sixth book or short story by him and I could recommend them all. His writing is smooth, intelligent and witty. Most of his work is considered fantasy, but you don't have to be a fantasy fan to enjoy his work. This story is a kind of Halloween mystery. If you are already a fan, don't miss this one. If for some reason you have never read Sullivan, get this while it is free. This is a gem.

    Reynolds is a top tier narrator.

    Thank you, Michael, for this free story!

    Great visit to the world of Royce and Hadrian, in their typical characters, and in a story with several twists and turns. If only we could get a fix of them every month! Tim Reynolds is the only one who should ever read this series as he is perfect!

    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.

    Marvelous.

    A fun, lighthearted story - lighthearted for Royce and Hadrian, anyway.
    It makes me want to read the trilogy again.

    Wonderful, well read story. Witty and with twists.

    Michael J Sullivan at his best story telling. Hadrian and Royce are fantastic diverse character you can't help but love. I just love the witty exchanges between the pair and their mannerisms.

    Tim really brought the story to life the way he rad it.

    Mediocre addition to the books.

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

    You get to spend another hour of your life with Royce and Hadrian for no cost. Add in that Tim Gerard Reynolds is at the mic and you can't beat it!

    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.

    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.
