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 J.R.R. 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 humans and the 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.… (mais)

I really enjoyed the other series in this world but this just fell completely flat. A friend had warned me but I still expected it to be passable. This is a DNF less than 10% of the way in. ( )

Competent and enjoyable - written in that modern language which is all the rage (tbf, it's better than pseudo tolkien speech and perhaps easier than inventing your own syntactic variations).

A little lacking in depth and heavy handed on the moral issues (by which I mean laboured, rather than the issues themselves being unworthy' they were perfectly valid as concepts). ( )

After struggling to become absorbed in the story, I wascaught up in it before the 50% mark.

As a history prequel to the Riyria Chronicles (which are on my to-read list), I found this first novel in the series thorough in its detail of relatively small events that I’m sure will become the stuff of legend in the Chronicles. I love that it feels like a “normal” tale of finding one’s place in the world, knowing that these events will take on more meaning, later.

The world and its humanoid races are well-thought out. This is evidenced by excellent description and convincingly plotted intrigues in both the civilized and rough cultures.

The only negative is invention of different race names than typically found in fantasy genres. I believe puzzling it out is part of why I struggled to get into the plot. Once I could equate that to my familiar experiences, things became easier. ( )

Let me state for the record that I am a Michael Sullivan groupie, despite Robin's continued rejection as a beta reader. The Age of Myth is the first of a five-volume series (Legends of the First Empire), occurring some three thousand years before his six-volume Riryria series. It is a time when humans (the Rhune) are surviving, dwarves (the Dherg) have been driven deep below ground, and elves (the Fhrey) are thought to be gods. The book opens with a man (Raithe) killing a Fhrey, after watching him kill his fearsome father, with some help from a slave, Malcolm. As a tribe is threatened by the Fhrey, Raithe is offered sanctuary by the former chieftan's wife, Persephone, who is a born leader. And, they both are aided by the young mystic, Suri and her white wolf, Minna, who speaks to trees, gaining invaluable advice.

Like his other series, the strength of Sullivan's writing is his strong, developed characters, and the escalating tensions as the story progresses. Personally, I did not like the reveal at the end of the first book, but applaud Sullivan's approach to epic fantasy in writing all of his books up-front so we do not have to wait five years for the next one, like George R.R. Martin or Patrick Rothfuss. ( )

A few years ago I read the Riyria Revelations series by the same author and loved it; this book, set in the same world but during a different era, much less so. For whatever reason, I didn't connect with the characters and I spent much of the book longing for the complex story and fascinating characters I remember from the other books. Likely, the weight of my expectations made it impossible for this volume to measure up, and to be fair, I appreciated the attempt to flesh out this world and the intriguing, if sometimes creepy, storytelling. Overall, I can't say I loved this book, but it's likely to appeal many of this author's fans. ( )

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.
