The Riyria Trivia Challenge

We’ve received such wonderful feedback from all you Riyria fans, and we know how eagerly you’re awaiting THE ROSE AND THE THORN (US | UK | AUS).

We’re challenging you to test your knowledge of the world of the Riyria Revelations and Chronicles in a month-long Trivia Challenge this September. Will you prove yourself to be as smart as Esrahaddon? Become a fan of the Facebook page to participate, and if you haven’t already, remember to pre-order your copy of THE ROSE AND THE THORN out on September 17.
