    New York Times Audio best seller | Amazon Editor's pick | Audible Editor's pick

    After more than 500 years of exile, the heir to the empyre is wary about his sudden reassignment to active duty on the Goblin War’s front lines. His mission to rescue an outpost leads to a dead-end canyon deep inside enemy territory, and his suspicion turns to dread when he discovers the stronghold doesn't exist. But whoever went to the trouble of planning his death to look like a casualty of war didn't know he would be assigned to the Seventh Sikaria Auxiliary Squadron. In the depths of an unforgiving jungle, a legend is about to be born, and the world of Elan will never be the same. 

    From Michael J. Sullivan, the New York Times, USA Today, and Washington Post best-selling author, a new adventure begins with the first book in The Rise and Fall trilogy. Although this series is set in the same world as the Riyria novels and the Legends of the First Empire books, it is a stand-alone tale. As such, no prior knowledge of the other works is required to enjoy this tale to its fullest.

    Too much of the 'First Empire'-Formula

    Like most I really enjoyed Riyria. But starting with the First Empire series the stories lost their witty, funny and adventurous side. This book is suffering from the same problems.

    1. Deus Ex Machina: There are gods who are toying with mortals. This makes for an incredible bad long term story if you're not looking at it from the gods perspective. Everything is on rails (because we already know what's going to happen to the bad guy) and the main characters just go through a somewhat heavily constructed plot to tie lose ends together. Because they are being played or it is foreseen.
    2.) Frustrating levels of misunderstandings, selfdoubts and blindness of main characters.
    3.) Sullivan is emphasising that history tends to get blurry and mythy over time and generations. He is in fact building a whole story arc on that for the second time. But this time a character who lived shortly after or even in the age of wonders forgets or doubts all these old truths to the point that it serves as a bumper for any story holes. This got as far as me doubting if I even like one of the main characters.
    4.) Everything is at such a large scale that it feels like Sullivan is just writing down the events as opposed to writing a story which is focussing on likeable, relatable characters experiencing a wonderous adventure.
    5.) Everyone is just in time for the story to tie up neatly, waiting for their cues to miss, rescue or murder each other. Remember? Gods! Deus Ex Machina. Some hints and odd behaviours later, which are leading to the new book, we get a rediculous "happy end" for the looney character, which is just throwing a child's mental health under the wagon for some good old godly intervention and some questionable heart warming.

    Still after all this criticism, the book is not bad but lacks where predecessors already had weak points.

    Not sure what happend here ...

    It feels like someone else wrote this one. It starts out great, but then seems to jump over important development bits to the point of some of the happenings feeling disconnected. I wonder ... if this is Robins first, it's a great book :) But if it's MJS latest, it feels like he got tired of this universe.
