Michael J. Sullivan's trailblazing career began with the breakout success of his Riyria series: full-bodied, spellbinding fantasy adventures whose imaginative scope and sympathetic characters won a devoted readership and comparisons to fantasy masters Brandon Sanderson, Scott Lynch, and Tolkien himself. Now, Sullivan's stunning hardcover debut, Age of Myth, inaugurates an original five-book series??and one of fantasy's finest next-generation storytellers continues to break new ground. Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between men and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now, only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer. Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom. And Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people. The Age of Myth is over; the time of rebellion has begun.… (mer)

I thought Age of Myth started out a little slow, but I really enjoyed the premise so I stuck with it -- and I'm really glad I did! I flew through the last half of the book in one evening, because once it picked up, it was impossible to put down.

This was a really well done epic fantasy novel, with a variety of interesting and likeable characters. The women, in particular, were quite strong -- which I definitely appreciated. I also liked the humour sprinkled throughout, and the bits of snarky, on-point dialogue. They provided the perfect counterpoint to the dark world-building and gruesome situations the characters often encountered. ( )

4.5 stars (half a star less because I didn't really feel the love connection between Raithe and Seph.

I was not expecting to like this. I basically picked this up because someone on youtube mentioned it even though their other recommendations were not up my alley and boy oh boy I'm glad I did. The world and magic of it are excellent.

This was a great adventure - Suri and Minna are my forever cinnamon rolls and I am here for them.
Persephone is a bad bitch and Raithe is ok - he comes across a little dull for me despite his skills.

I was into Nyphron but I'm second guessing myself after finishin it.

Malcolm is a wonderful rock bludgeonor.

I don't know how I feel about Arion yet - she seems a bit aloof and above emotion.

Poor Maeve.

And Konniger, Gryndal and that duo of dicks, the King and Prince of Fhrey, can suck it.

I'm excited for the next one. ( )

DNF lol. This audiobook reader has got to be most annoying I've ever encountered.

Michael J. Sullivan is a gifted storyteller! For those of us who have read his Riyria series, we of course already know this. But this author is no one-trick wonder. Age of Myth is the first book of Michael J. Sullivan's newest series, the Legends of the First Empire. Set 3000 years before the timeline of Riyria Revelations, the series aspires to set the record straight and tell the truth behind the myths shrouding the First Empire's creation.This story was wonderful. The pacing, action, plot reveals, setting and context, the characters - all fabulous. For want of a better word, there is something 'friendly' about the author's style that is satisfying and heartwarming. And, best of all, we are left with questions for the next instalments to answer.

In the days of darkness before the war, men were called Rhunes. We lived in Rhuneland or Rhulyn as it was once known. We had little to eat and much to fear. What we feared most were the gods across the Bern River, where we were not allowed. Most people believe our conflict with the Fhrey started at the Battle of Grandford, but it actually began on a day in early spring when two men crossed the river.
