turns out to be not the prick I thought he was, and Fane Lothian remains the most despicable of all.I would have liked a bitabout Nyphron and Persephone, but I think they will have the biggest share in the last volume, due to what we know so far about the Empyre.Nevertheless, it was a fun and easy reading, as is the case with all Sullivan s books If you ever feel down, tired or not in your best mood, try one of his books as a matter of fact, start with The Riyria Revelations Series, if you haven t already you won t be sorry.PS as always, if you need a recap of the previous volumes, here they are Beta read went through it rather quicklyGamma read very few changes I think some of the chapter titles changed, but I ll have to compare the two versions to be sure 4.5 starsThis book felt so short, yet it s over 400 pages The book starts off with Brin, thankfully, right where the previous book ended This book also has a cliffhanger, but I don t think it s quite as agonizing as Age of Legend.About half the book follows the seven as they explore and fight Beta read went through it rather quicklyGamma read very few changes I think some of the chapter titles changed, but I ll have to

and fascinating The other half follows Suri and the Fhrey, who are on the road to civil war I enjoyed seeing the conspiracy take shape Very little time is given to Persephone and the other humans.If you ve enjoyed the series so far, you ll find this one quite satisfying It s quick and easy to read, full of adventure There are several characters, like Tesh, who grow and change This element complemented all the adventure stuff nicely.Clean language no sexual content some violence Book Blog 4.5 Death is Just a Door StarsAge of Death is the fifth book in the Legends of the First Empire series where Michael J Sullivan MJS takes all of the history we learned in the Riyria books and turns it on its head to give us the true story, before years of retellings, exaggerations, forgotten details and twistings happen World of note to the reader Since I ve read many MJS books, I like to point out that while most of his stories are self contained with solid end points Age of Legend, Death 4.5 Death is Just a Door StarsAge of Death is the fifth book in the Legends of the First Empire series where Michael J Sullivan MJS takes all of the history we learned in the Riyria books and turns it on its head to give us the true story, before years of retellings, exaggerations, forgotten details and twistings happen World of note to the reader Since I ve read many MJS books, I like to point out that while most of his stories are self contained with solid end points Age of Legend, Death and Empyre are not They arelike one larger story split into three parts and so they end at spots that are treacherous for our beloved characters Be prepared As usual this book is very aptly named as some of our characters are wondering through the world of the dead Will they be able to make it out alive or is there a fate worse than death It is hard to say at this point because everything seems very dire Still I love the traveling party that made it across the veil and seeing a few of the characters that we ve lost in the pastThe good news is that death is not the end, but that is also the bad news THE BOOK OF BRINCharacters are really MJS s strong suit I feel so connected to all of them Even characters that I hated in Age of Myth are not as flat as they once seemed and now it is very hard to hate them especially reading anything through their eyes Tressa for instance has become dear to me now in this series by Age of Death, if you would have asked me about her in Age of Myth, I would have wished he a fiery death Gifford and Roan also have a special place in my heart, since both are broken in different ways I loved seeing Gifford in death and how he was changed, it was a true reflection of the man.As one group traverses the perils of the underworld trying to make it to Suri, Persephone is in the dragon camp sure of the death of most of the people she loves Malcolm is back with his strange knowing and cryptic statements Sure, he says that there is a chance all of her friends won t stay dead but for now she is feeling rather alone and useless just waiting for the next shoe to dropThis war won t be won or lost by birds or dragons, nor by greed or hate, but by the courage and virtue of an unlikely few who will forfeit everything to save the futureMalcolm, that is another conundrum Who is he really Is he good or evil, or is that statement too simple Is he really trying to fix something he broke long ago or is this just another little game he is playing with the mere mortals of the world Onebook and perhaps we will know for sure.Suri, I love that girl so much She is one of my favorite characters of all time and has been through so much already She is alone in the Fhrey city, held prisoner as the Fain tries to figure out the secret of dragons There are plots all around Suri and she will eventually play a greater part, I m just not sure what it will cost her Mawyndule also will be a pawn on someone s side, I m just not sure whose and may be the tipping point that will either destroy characters I love or help them inadvertently This was another great installment in a series of fantastic books It had all of the little things I ve come to love in this series Quotes from the Book of Brin, danger, adventure, loss, sacrifice, hope, love, mythos and mystery are all in there somewhere I m definitely excited to see how the series is going to close out and with the final book coming out in just a few months my wait won t be long Thank you to MJS for 1 writing out the entire series before beginning to publish the books.2 Putting them on an accelerated release time schedule, especially for the final book.3 Making sure the Audio is ready at the same time as the book release.Another great addition to my fantasy collection But but you can t end a book like that Other than the cliffhanger ending this book mostly felt like filler Although we got to knowof the history of the world, and I always like that sort of thing Quick disclaimer the version I read was only 349 pages, not 420 like it says here on Goodreads 3.5 stars With Suri in the hands of Fane Lothian, Nyphron is convinced he no longer has a chance of winning the war Persephone finds herself alone Her brave friends who went to save Suri are dead, but Malcolm tells her that there s still a chance they could return The group who willingly entered the land of the dead are the Rhunes only hope.Age of Death like Age of Legend ended in a cliff hanger At least I know I won t have to wait too long for the last book of the series, but I really wish the story With Suri in the hands of Fane Lothian, Nyphron is convinced he no longer has a chance of winning the war Persephone finds herself alone Her brave friends who went to save Suri are dead, but Malcolm tells her that there s still a chance they could return The group who willingly entered the land of the dead are the Rhunes only hope.Age of Death like Age of Legend ended in a cliff hanger At least I know I won t have to wait too long for the last book of the series, but I really wish the story progressed further.Age of Death clearly shows that in this world, death isn t the end The reader is granted a view of the afterlife and the realms within it The history of the world and the gods are mentioned in some detail which was interesting to say the least The gods aren t exactly what I imagined they would be.I love the work put into the various characters I find myself enjoying all of them and what they add to the tale, which is rare Michael J Sullivan puts them through what appears like hell at times and they all face it differently I know it s not reasonable to expect a happy ending for all of them, but I hope things all turn out for the better for each one of them.Age of Death was a really enjoyable read Now I just have to wait for the series conclusion, Age of Empyre Send help for I am not okay thAT IS NOT HOW CLIFFHANGERS WORK GODAMIT MICHAEL IT S PURE CRUELTY THAT S WHAT IT IS While it certainly feels like a middle book it s still a real good read Also I expect a big bang in Age of Empyre aND I M READY FOR ITAlso a reminder that Suri is the Preciousest of Precious and I love her If

makes me evenscared for what s to become of him and how it might develop in Empyre hide spoiler Well, I don t know what is wrong I LOVE the writing of Michael J Sullivan And I have enjoyed so many of his books So it is surprising that I m not feeling it with the latter half of this series I did like this one better than the last one so that is a positive, but I feel like I m in mourning because there is a huge hole whether it is in my heart or in the story is my main question It just feels slow and wordy For me, it feels like he wrote a trilogy but the last book was a little too lon Well, I don t know what is wrong I LOVE the writing of Michael J Sullivan And I have enjoyed so many of his books So it is surprising that I m not feeling it with the latter half of this series I did like this one better than the last one so that is a positive, but I feel like I m in mourning because there is a huge hole whether it is in my heart or in the story is my main question It just feels slow and wordy For me, it feels like he wrote a trilogy but the last book was a little too long, so he decided to split it into 3 separate books Hence the excess words With this one he inserted a lot of stories about past incidents, history, people He also threw in obstacles that felt just like an obstacle with little to glean There were few aha moments While I love a good backstory, here it made this feel a little long So 3 stars..I think I hope Age of Death took an astounding turn in the direction of the overall story, and it was brilliant This book is aptly titled as it would be the death of me We have yet another cliffhanger ending as the second arc of The Legends of the First Empire series is shaping up to be one continuous story It was excruciating to say the least, but I can empathise with Sullivan in struggling to find a suitable point to break off for each volume, short of releasing it as a single doorstopper A single volume Age of Death took an astounding turn in the direction of the overall story, and it was brilliant This book is aptly titled as it would be the death of me We have yet another cliffhanger ending as the second arc of The Legends of the First Empire series is shaping up to be one continuous story It was excruciating to say the least, but I can empathise with Sullivan in struggling to find a suitable point to break off for each volume, short of releasing it as a single doorstopper A single volume wouldn t work for physical printing purposes, especially if collectors of the hardcovers want to maintain the aesthetics of the books And if you ve seen their covers and how the hardcovers look like, you ll want that consistency They are stunningly beautiful.The mythology of Elan as we know it from Riyria has been blown apart in this penultimate volume It is getting harder and harder to write a review for one of these books as we progress towards what is looking to be an epic finale Reading The Legends of the First Empire as a huge fan of Riyria books which I ve read about three times already made itenthralling as one can now appreciate how much history has morphed into myths and legends over the span of three thousand years I d probably sound like a broken record by now, but it is the gradual unveiling of the truths, the real events and the people behind it, which made this series so incredibly captivating for me.It would not come to your surprise to know that our beloved characters also continued to grow and develop most compellingly as they venture into a strange new place I know it sounded vague, but truly I couldn t say anythingexcept that the resultant worldbuilding in this place was spectacular Those who ve read Age of Legend would know what it was to come Even with such anticipation, I was amazed with the revelations that came to light when our brave and intrepid band of unlikely heroes dared to undertake this dangerous and arduous journey Have I ever said how much I loved that the unsung heroes of this saga were not typical heroes and warriors This war won t be won or lost by birds or dragons, nor by greed or hate, but by the courage and virtue of an unlikely few who will forfeit everything to save the future Sullivan s writing kept getting better over the years, but the one thing which has been his hallmark all these time was his excellent characterisation I dare you to read his books and come out not caring about the characters The story of redemption, one of my favourite character themes, is ever present and well written in Sullivan s books Riyria was the best example of this And then we also have the stories of marginalised characters who are and become so muchthan what people expect them to be Poor indeed are the infallible, for facing failure teaches us how to prosper Age of Death is the most exciting and fantastic entry of the series so far While one would expect that of a penultimate instalment of a series, it was the manner in which the story took a turn that made it so fascinating and thrilling I have no clue how the story will continue for the finale, Age of Empyre, which is without a doubt one of my most anticipated books of the year I received an early copy of the ebook as one of the Kickstarter backers.Official release date 4th February 2020You can pre order a copy fromUSUK Book Depository Free shipping worldwideYou can find this and my other reviews at Novel Notions. Every book, so far, in The Legends of the First Empire series is always my favorite by the time I am done with it and yet again the most recent serial installment knocked the previous book out of my top favorite Age of Death was a spectacular story that grabbed my complete and total attention from the very start I can only imagine after reading this book what is going to be in store for readers in the final installment of this series and all I can say is to bring it on I am ready and I can ha Every book, so far, in The Legends of the First Empire series is always my favorite by the time I am done with it and yet again the most recent serial installment knocked the previous book out of my top favorite Age of Death was a spectacular story that grabbed my complete and total attention from the very start I can only imagine after reading this book what is going to be in store for readers in the final installment of this series and all I can say is to bring it on I am ready and I can handle it or at least that is what I keep telling myself The end of Age of Legend left readers on quite the cliffhanger, so it would be apt to say that I was dying to get my hands on this story In this book, our band of usual suspects have been divided where some of them are traveling into a world completely unknown to anyone that has walked the earth, well there are exceptions to that statement, and the others were left to walk their own path Luckily, the story picked up where it had left off and I was able to jump in very quickly with what was taking place with Brin and her cohorts I can say that I had not anticipated the journey that they would take nor the setting that they would travel It was beyond my imagining and it was truly an astounding place to be.The story also follows Suri as she tries to make good on the promise that she made to Arion Man, do I miss Arion as a main character but in this story, we get to meet her mother and there were a few surprises there It was interesting to see how the threat of civil war was being viewed by the Fhrey and that there was a faction who wanted to open communication with the Rhunes if for no other reason than to wrest power from the fane any way that they could Can t say that I disagreed with the plan to undermine the fane, he was quite the evil megalomaniac.I will say that I was a little surprised that little time was given to Persephone and what was taking place with the other humans who were waiting for an outcome to the threat they were expected the Fhrey to unleash Not having a large active part from Persephone didn t detract from the story, I just found it surprising As with the previous book, Age of Death ended on another gripping cliffhanger thank you Mr Sullivan after some major battles that raised my blood pressure and I am now anxiously anticipating the final book, Age of Empyre Just the thought of what s to come has goosebumps raising on my flesh and my heart in my throat
