My resolve has been hardened lately when I saw the cover of the second book in the series called Age of Swords. It's simplistic design is all for me. So I said to my self that I will buy both books at the same time and hopefully be patient enough to wait for books three through five. (I told you that bluish covers -- this time bluish green -- just draws me in... I can't help my self.)
Check out the cover of Age of Swords: Book Two of The Legends of the First Empire by Michael J. Sullivan
The gods have been proven mortal and new heroes will arise as the battle continues in the sequel to Age of Myth.
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 within.
Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but long-standing enmities dividing the Rhune make it all but impossible to unite against a common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess makes the Fhrey indistinguishable from gods?
The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feels 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—an enemy as surprising as it is deadly.
Age of Swords: Book Two of The Legends of the First Empire by Michael J. Sullivan will be released on June 20, 2017.
