Publisher's Summary

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 humans 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.

A Very Enjoyable Mystical Read

This book grips you from the first page. You can roughly figure out where the story's headed but in no way predict how it'll get there! At every juncture you will be filled with lots of questions but continually satisfied with the ongoing story. You can tell that there is a lot more of the story to come, to be told but you'll never be left wanting. I actually thought to myself how glad I was that all the key characters were undermined because it meant the absence of full scale and multiple battles on multiple fronts. I think the series has been written in this way in order for us to absorb all the intricacies at each stage of the story which promise to be relevant much later in the series. That said, there is sufficient action, humour, mysteries and conspiracies to keep you engaged from start to finish (and when you do reach the finish line of this book, you'll immediately feel and know that the journey's just begun!!).
The narrator is one of my favourites so no doubt, he gets full marks from me!!
I desperately look forward to the next book in this series!

Sullivan + Reynolds = Gold

Would you consider the audio edition of Age of Myth to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version as I only listen to audibooks lately, due to detteriorating eyesight.

What other book might you compare Age of Myth to, and why?

This one is hard.. It's quite different from other works by Sullivan, even though it's the same narrator. I feel like it has a slight resemblance in pacing to The Lies of Locke Lamora. ( )
Though the plot is quite different. The portrayal of characters and humor resemble in part what I loved in The Cycle of Arawn. ( )
Though so far it's less... Visceral, less brutal. With kinder characters. It doesn't help to sepperate the two that they're performed by the same person.

Which character – as performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds – was your favourite?

Giffard. Don't know if I'm spelling that correctly, but he's.. Fantastic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. The scene involved Giffard and a woman. It was.. Heartbreakingly beautiful. Made me sit down and write this review.

Any additional comments?

VERY different from the other books Sullivan has written, yet in a good way. The pacing, humor and strong characters are still there, yet the story is completely different, the world is different.. It's just really fresh.
Even if you've not read any of his other books, read this one.
