Michael J. Sullivan is the author of two popular adventure fantasy trilogies: Riyria Revelations (Theft of Swords, Rise of Empire, and Heir of Novron), and The Riyria Chronicles (The Crown Tower, The Rose and the Thorn, and The Death of Dulgath).
Now, in his US hardcover debut, Age of Myth, he kicks off his most ambitious project yet: a five-book epic of gods, men, and the powerful destiny that ties both together.
Since time immemorial, humans have worshiped 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.
Age of Myth will be published by Del Rey on June 28, 2016. It is 416 pages, priced at $26 in hardcover and $12.99 for the digital edition. The eye-catching cover is by Marc Simonetti.
