about

The gods have been proven mortal and new heroes will arise as the battle continues in the sequel to Age of Myth—from the author of the Riyria Revelations and Riyria Chronicles series.

In Age of Myth, fantasy master Michael J. Sullivan launched readers on an epic journey of magic and adventure, heroism and betrayal, love and loss. Now the thrilling saga continues as the human uprising is threatened by powerful enemies from without—and bitter rivalries from within.

Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but long-standing enmities dividing the Rhunes make it all but impossible to unite against the common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess renders them indistinguishable from gods?

The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feel nothing but disdain for both Fhrey and mankind. With time running out, Persephone leads the gifted young seer Suri, the Fhrey sorceress Arion, and a small band of misfits in a desperate search for aid—a quest that will take them into the darkest depths of Elan. There, an ancient adversary waits, as fearsome as it is deadly.

Praise for Michael J. Sullivan

“If you enjoy epic fantasy, and are perhaps hungering for something with timeless appeal, then I highly recommend picking up Age of Myth.”—The BiblioSanctum, on Age of Myth

“Hair-raising escapes, flashy sword fights, and faithful friendship complete the formula for good old-fashioned escapist fun.”—Publishers Weekly, on Theft of Swords

“Filled with adventure and clever dialog and featuring a pair of not-quite-heroes whose loyalties to each other provide them with their greatest strength, this epic fantasy showcases the arrival of a master storyteller.”—Library Journal, on Theft of Swords

“With less gore and a smaller cast of characters than George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire but equally satisfying, Sullivan’s epic fantasy will be gaining fans at exponential rates.”—Library Journal, on The Rose and the Thorn

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic Fantasy With Strong Females I've been waiting months for the next instalment in Michael J. Sullivan's latest fantasy epic. Not only were my expectations met, they were exceeded. Just as with AGE OF MYTH, this sequel is a powerful, emotional tale that truly makes you feel like you're going on an adventure with unforgettable characters. I don't know where to begin because I just loved this book so much! The characters were exceptional. Raithe, one of my favourites, played a smaller role in this story, but the rest of it was completely dominated by Persephone, Suri, Moya, Brin, and Roan. If you're looking for a fantasy epic with strong, unconventional female characters, THIS is the book you've been waiting for. Proof that it doesn't matter who you are or how high the odds might be stacked against you––if you believe in something, you can fight for and achieve it. Another aspect I loved was the further depth into the world's lore. What makes this series so unique is that it's unconventional fantasy; these people and characters, more or less, are primitive, but far from stupid. Witnessing them learn and utilize weapons and creations we take for granted today was one of the highlights in what continues to be a fantastic series. And of course, there was the action! There were epic battles and betrayals and bloodshed, all leading to a satisfying climax and an ending chapter that already has be biting my nails and stressing. And if all of that isn't enough to convince you that you NEED these books in your life, look at that cover. Just look at it. I haven't seen many covers as beautiful as this. I need it framed on my wall. AGE OF SWORDS is not a book to be missed, and will undoubtedly land on my Best Books of the Year List. Read it now!!!
