Theft of Swords(The Riyria Revelations (omnibus editions), #1)
An omnibus edition.
- The Crown Conspiracy
THEY KILLED THE KING. THEY PINNED IT ON TWO MEN. THEY CHOSE POORLY.
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 in order to keep a secret too terrible for the world to know?
And so begins the first tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend.
