"There are things beyond the control of men, and the will of the gods is one of them."
Michael J. Sullivan is a fantasy reader's best friend. Not only does he write fantastic and engaging stories, he spends a lot of his time ensuring that his readers are satisfied and pleased with his books. In essence, Sullivan works incredibly hard to unravel an engaging story for his fans.
It is no surprise, then, that Age of Myth is a worthy addition to the fantasy genre. For me, Age of Myth read as the first episode among many. The story itself is self-contained and clever, but ultimately promises more in future episodes to come.
There are a slew of characters to care about and admire. And unlike many fantasy novels, it easily passes the Bechdel Test without the female characters looking like masquerading males in disguise.
Thus, Age of Myth is a fantastic beginning to what promises to be a brilliant series.
