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 I don t review my own books, but I do use this space to update readers So here goes02 04 20

we were there for the start of the recording of the audiobook We still have at least one, and maybe two days of recording left We are finding some very minor adjustments that we are making during the recordings, so I m going to wait until we are done before making the ebook But we are dangerously close to having everything locked down and sending the Kickstarter backers their ebook on the next installment.10 10 19 The beta reader feedback is in and incorporated, and I ve received the copyedits from both Linda and Laura I ll just need a few days to accept reject the copyedits and then we re

can get the Kickstarter backers their copies.08 23 19 Well, yesterday we launched the Kickstarter for Age of Death, and while I m not surprised the project fundedI was shocked that we did so in just 25 minutes Currently, it s raisedthan 61,000 from nearly 1,700 backers That makes it the 7th most backed and 15 most funded fiction project of all time We already cleared our first stretch goal, and Robin just posted a second one all backers will receive a bonus short story Autumn Mists If you want to get Age of Death 3 months before the retail release, then come on by the Kickstarter 08 06 19 And done Well, mostly Some time ago, Robin had some major alpha feedback for this book, which made me take apart the engine, and for a while, it was in pieces around my garage Well, I put it back together, turned the key, and what do you know it started With the magnitude of the changes, Robin needed to go over it again, and she did There was still one major area that needed work and after a surprisingly short and easy meeting they don t always go that way we had a plan, and so while she finished reviewing the book, I worked on some tweaks to the part she and I agreed to in our meeting Well, I finished them about half an hour ago, and at the same time, Robin sent me a file with her full book s review comments of which are simple line edit level changes nostructural issues These types of changes usually go quickly for me, and I predict we can be in beta in less than a week We ll keep you posted.07 18 19 Okay, with Age of Legend officially released we have seen a lot of excitement for this title So, here are some details 1 Pre order pages are already up for the audio and hardcover editions We hope to have the ebook live in the next few weeks Official release date is 2 4 20, but we WILL be doing a Kickstarter and people who pre order through that will get the book in October The artwork for the cover is finished Marc Simonetti did a great job, and I hope to be revealing the cover soon Stay tuned 03 28 18 Finished the post alpha 2 edits on this book, and it should be done except for any minor tweaking I might find as I work on post alpha 2 edits on the final book What is a post alpha 2 edit Well, Robin gave me initial alpha on books 4 6 back in the day, and 4 needed some pretty extensive work That s what I had been spending the majority of my post Age of War time on It was the most extensive rework of a book I ve done, but it was a essential and b I m now happy with the way that book is and if Robin agrees it ll start getting reading for beta Okay, so back to this book I went over it all given the massive changes to book 4 There were some things I trimmed out that weren t working for me, but very little needed to be revamped This book was actually in much better shape than I remembered, and if Robin is satisfied with it, It ll go over to beta shortly after Age of Legend Ohand we changed the title of thisagainbut I think we ll be sticking with Age of Death 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.
