Inhaltsangabe

The gods have been proven mortal, and new heroes will arise as the battle continues in the sequel to Age of Myth - from the author of the Riyria Revelations and Riyria Chronicles series.

In Age of Myth, fantasy master Michael J. Sullivan launched listeners 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 longstanding 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 renders 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.

Ohrenschmaus... englische Version aus Neugier

Vor lauter Neugier wie es weitergeht habe ich dieses Buchsogar auf englisch gehört. Es hat sich gelohnt. Spannung vom ersten bis zu letzten Kapitel. Ich warte sehnsüchtig auf die Fortsetzung.

All in on stupidity

The story continues, but this time several chapters and central plot points are dedicated to somekind of children's story on the invention of all kind of things. The worst thing is that most of the inventions make no sense, the author seems have no grasp on how things were invented, or what challenges that were overcome in their inventions. He doesn't understand bronze (tin is rarer than copper), iron (better for being more common, but you can't control carbon directly without modern tools, which makes the quality random), the bow (was invented very early for hunting small animals, the main invention was finding the right materials for larger version and the training necessary to draw them), or the wheel (its invention mainly determined by landscape, and completely unsuitable for forests..).. And let's ignore the massive stupidity that is his understanding of linguistics, where somebody unable to read any language can not only decipher a foreign dead language and foreign script, but understand its phonetics too in mere hours. Something logically impossible, we don't know what ancient languages sounded like for a reason even with all our modern analysis and sources. The result is a book that goes on and on about really dumb inventions that make no sense. To top things off the non-humans seem to end on massive collective brainfarts, making the setup for the next book stupid beyond belief. At least we have a cools mix of central characters, just wish what they did made more sense

Awesome as ever

During Age of Myth I was still struggling to love the new set of characters as much as I did Royce, Hadrian, Arista and Gwen but by now I can hardly wait for the next. In Age of Swords the story gains speed and familiarity. A great peek at what is coming and now I can have 6 books instead of 5.
Thank you Michael Sullivan and Timm Reynolds both of you are great.
