Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan (June 20, 2017 by Del Rey)
Michael J. Sullivan is one of my must-read authors, enough said. Looking forward to this sequel to Age of Myth, which I really enjoyed, and I’m simply blown away by the gorgeous covers to the books in this series so far.
“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 from 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 the common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess render them indistinguishable from gods?
The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feel 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 where waits an ancient adversary as fearsome as it is deadly.”
