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.

"Author Michael Sullivan and narrator Tim Reynolds team up again for a series that serves as a prequel to the Riyria series. The first in the new five-volume Legends of the First Empire begins with an event that threatens to reshape the world: A god is killed by a human. One of the hallmarks of Sullivan's books is a broad cast of characters who interact in a variety of ways. There too lies the strength of Reynolds's narration. The dynamic relationships between the characters, including their friendly verbal sparring, are the foundation of his performance. As the characters develop in confidence and independence, Reynolds reflects their changes in attitude. He sets a strong pace and maintains a sense of forward motion. J.E.M.
