Speculative Fiction Junkie - Reviews of works of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and related genres. After reading a number of positive reviews from other sites they reached out for a review copy of the Crown Conspiracy. In their own words they said...
"...when I first heard about author Michael J. Sullivan's debut novel, The Crown Conspiracy, which does contain a bit of each of these elements, I was wholly uninterested. But for several months thereafter I kept hearing unerringly positive things about this book, and eventually I was forced to capitulate and seek out a copy."
The review goes on to say: "The first thing that happened to me when I started reading The Crown Conspiracy was that I realized that I couldn't put it down. I tried prying it off my fingers and shaking my hands around like I'd just touched a hot pan but all to no avail. This book is that good. Even more amazingly, Mr. Sullivan manages to sustain this effect throughout the entire novel. The characters are likeable, interesting, and well developed, and the setting is wonderfully fleshed out, complete with a detailed history, political rivalries, varied landscapes, and everything else that readers of fantasy have come to expect. And Mr. Sullivan weaves the action into this story so skillfully that I had to keep reminding myself that this is his first novel."
The Review concluded with: "All in all, though, this was an extremely enjoyable read from start to finish. The Crown Conspiracy reminds me why I fell in love with the fantasy genre in the first place."
