Waiting on Wednesday: Age of Swords

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Breaking the Spine
The gods have been proven mortal and new heroes will arise as the battle continues in the sequel to Age of Myth.
In Age of Myth, fantasy master Michael J. Sullivan launched readers on an epic journey of magic and adventure, heroism and betrayal, love and loss. Now the thrilling saga continues as the human uprising is threatened by powerful enemies from without—and bitter rivalries within.
Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but long-standing enmities dividing the Rhune make it all but impossible to unite against a common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess makes the Fhrey indistinguishable from gods?
The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feels nothing but disdain for both Fhrey and mankind. With time running out, Persephone leads the gifted young seer Suri, the Fhrey sorceress Arion, and a small band of misfits in a desperate search for aid—a quest that will take them into the darkest depths of Elan. There, an ancient adversary waits—an enemy as surprising as it is deadly.
Why I'm Waiting
I wasn't as taken with the first book in this series as I was with Sullivan's previous work, but now that a lot of the groundwork for this world has been laid and all the characters are set up I think I will be more than happy with this one. Also, this cover is so much more than I expected! I love it!

Age of Swords is released June 28th, 2017, and you can preorder it here


  1. I was just reading a stellar review of the first in this series -- I'm sorry it didn't work as well as you'd hoped, but here's to a better second book! Here's mine:

    1. It's still a rather good book but when I compared it to his other series, which is one of my all time favorites, it wasn't as good so I was let down, unfortunately. I've heard a lot of people loved the first one and I'm so happy they did! I hope this one is as good as his other writing, because I really want to fall in love with this series as well. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I really need to try this author - not sure what I've been waiting for actually.

    1. Yes, why have you been waiting LOL. Didn't you haul one of his books a few months ago?
