    Age of Death took an astounding turn in the direction of the overall story, and it was brilliant This book is aptly titled as it would be the death of me We have yet another cliffhanger ending as the second arc of The Legends of the First Empire series is shaping up to be one continuous story It was excruciating to say the least, but I can empathise with Sullivan in struggling to find a suitable point to break off for each volume, short of releasing it as a single doorstopper A single volume wouldn t work for physical printing purposes, especially if collectors of the hardcovers want to maintain the aesthetics of the books And if you ve seen their covers and how the hardcovers look like, you ll want that consistency They are stunningly beautiful.The mythology of Elan as we know it from Riyria has been blown apart in this penultimate volume It is getting harder and harder to write a review for one of these books as we progress towards what is looking to be an epic finale Reading The Legends of the First Empire as a huge fan of Riyria books which I ve read about three times already made it enthralling as one can now appreciate how much history has morphed into myths and legends over the span of three thousand years I d probably sound like a broken record by now, but it is the gradual unveiling of the truths, the real events and the people behind it, which made this series so incredibly captivating for me.It would not come to your surprise to know that our beloved characters also continued to grow and develop most compellingly as they venture into a strange new place I know it sounded vague, but truly I couldn t say anything except that the resultant worldbuilding in this place was spectacular Those who ve read Age of Legend would know what it was to come Even with such anticipation, I was amazed with the revelations that came to light when our brave and intrepid band of unlikely heroes dared to undertake this dangerous and arduous journey Have I ever said how much I loved that the unsung heroes of this saga were not typical heroes and warriors This war won t be won or lost by birds or dragons, nor by greed or hate, but by the courage and virtue of an unlikely few who will forfeit everything to save the future Sullivan s writing kept getting better over the years, but the one thing which has been his hallmark all these time was his excellent characterisation I dare you to read his books and come out not caring about the characters The story of redemption, one of my favourite character themes, is ever present and well written in Sullivan s books Riyria was the best example of this And then we also have the stories of marginalised characters who are and become so much than what people expect them to be Poor indeed are the infallible, for facing failure teaches us how to prosper Age of Death is the most exciting and fantastic entry of the series so far While one would expect that of a penultimate instalment of a series, it was the manner in which the story took a turn that made it so fascinating and thrilling I have no clue how the story will continue for the finale, Age of Empyre, which is without a doubt one of my most anticipated books of the year I received an early copy of the ebook as one of the Kickstarter backers.Official release date 4th February 2020 You can pre order a copy from US UK Book Depository Free shipping worldwide You can find this and my other reviews at Novel Notions.

    Beta read went through it rather quicklyGamma read very few changes I think some of the chapter titles changed, but I ll have to compare the two versions to be sure 4.5 starsThis book felt so short, yet it s over 400 pages The book starts off with Brin, thankfully, right where the previous book ended This book also has a cliffhanger, but I don t think it s quite as agonizing as Age of Legend.About half the book follows the seven as they explore and fight through uncharted territory Everything they experience is new and fascinating The other half follows Suri and the Fhrey, who are on the road to civil war I enjoyed seeing the conspiracy take shape Very little time is given to Persephone and the other humans.If you ve enjoyed the series so far, you ll find this one quite satisfying It s quick and easy to read, full of adventure There are several characters, like Tesh, who grow and change This element complemented all the adventure stuff nicely.Clean language no sexual content some violence Book Blog

    WTH was that ending I was warned it will end in a cliffhanger, but I expected a milder one, like in the previous volume, not like this Damn Well, at least I should be happy that with Kickstarter I ll get to read the final volume in February, not May.Anyway, despite the vexing ending, I very much enjoyed the book It picks up the story from the previous volume but now its focus is on the fellowship view spoiler trying to save Suri hide spoiler

    With Suri in the hands of Fane Lothian, Nyphron is convinced he no longer has a chance of winning the war Persephone finds herself alone Her brave friends who went to save Suri are dead, but Malcolm tells her that there s still a chance they could return The group who willingly entered the land of the dead are the Rhunes only hope.Age of Death like Age of Legend ended in a cliff hanger At least I know I won t have to wait too long for the last book of the series, but I really wish the story progressed further.Age of Death clearly shows that in this world, death isn t the end The reader is granted a view of the afterlife and the realms within it The history of the world and the gods are mentioned in some detail which was interesting to say the least The gods aren t exactly what I imagined they would be.I love the work put into the various characters I find myself enjoying all of them and what they add to the tale, which is rare Michael J Sullivan puts them through what appears like hell at times and they all face it differently I know it s not reasonable to expect a happy ending for all of them, but I hope things all turn out for the better for each one of them.Age of Death was a really enjoyable read Now I just have to wait for the series conclusion, Age of Empyre.

    Send help for I am not okay thAT IS NOT HOW CLIFFHANGERS WORK GODAMIT MICHAEL IT S PURE CRUELTY THAT S WHAT IT IS While it certainly feels like a middle book it s still a real good read Also I expect a big bang in Age of Empyre aND I M READY FOR ITAlso a reminder that Suri is the Preciousest of Precious and I love her If you came here expecting a proper review, you have came to the wrong place view spoiler also I had half a panic attack at least three times because I thought our little gang might meet Raithe in the Afterlife and my heart would not have been able to handle it but the fact he was nowhere to be found there, makes me even scared for what s to become of him and how it might develop in Empyre hide spoiler

    But but you can t end a book like that Other than the cliffhanger ending this book mostly felt like filler Although we got to know of the history of the world, and I always like that sort of thing Quick disclaimer the version I read was only 349 pages, not 420 like it says here on Goodreads 3.5 stars

    4.5 stars This has been my favorite of the Legends series so far Went by quickly and left me wanting the next book.I have a tendency to get a little impatient with certain parts of the Legends series books Since there are things going on in different locations, with different characters, you have to go back to some of the less exciting spots from time to time I do find myself just wanting to be back where the action is, and have a tendency to try to get through these less exciting parts quickly While this still happened occasionally with this book, it was kept to a minimum and just what was necessary to keep you informed of what was going on elsewhere, so I appreciated that It does end in a cliffhanger that left me feeling much like the characters must be feeling I wanted to keep reading and I was grumbling for a couple minutes, but Mr Sullivan does warn you ahead of time and explains why he had to do this I feel confident that not all is lost, so I can handle waiting Luckily, the Sullivans are awesome and get the books out as quickly as humanly possible, so the wait should be fairly short Side note I received an early copy of this book as a Kickstarter backer, and I look forward to backing the next one
