Michael J. Sullivan is one of the most successful independent/hybrid authors out there right now. His Riyria universe has become his more popular world, and now you can experience that in chronological order.

What’s on the Riyria Reading Order?

This timeline includes all of the Riyria books by Michael J. Sullivan in chronological order. These books take place on the world of Elan, and includes all of the novels and short stories that take place on that world. This includes several series of books:

  • The Riyria Revelations books cameĀ first.
  • Riyria Chronicles followed but take place before the first series.
  • The First Empire books take place in the distant past and stand alone.

These three series provide the bulk of the Riyria books, but you will find several short stories as well.

Where do I start reading the Riyria books?

The Riyria books have too good places to start. First, the first books to be published (The Riyria Revelations series) is one good place. But the First Empire series, starting with Age of Myth, is another good place to start because it takes place so far in the past that it stands on its own.

If you find anything that we need to add, edit, or omit, please let us know. We love to hear any feedback you might have to make this timeline and this site better. We hope you enjoy this Riyria reading order! If you do, be sure to check out some of our other timelines, such as the Wheel of Time.
