Beschreibung

Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped 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 humans 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.

Nice start

Lore wise Age of Myth is the most interesting book yet. It awakes the "ancient empire" and colourfull magical world to life. But the book has some flaws as well compared to the Riyria book. The biggest is a lack of Royce. I always liked Royce the best not only because he was most real character but also because he and his worldview was a nice counter weight to all the well-intentioned altruistic heros. Giving the books more charm, live and chemistry between the characters.
Nevron seems to be plotting, Malcom as well, but neither perspective was told in the book. The narrating characters are all easily manipulated, naive or helplessly in love. That makes the reader get to the necessary conclusions faster than the characters. Seriously no-one suspected what really happened with the "bear". The problem with Persephone might also be her age, intelligence and experience in politics. She should be disillusioned and cynical instead of blindly believing.
The whole book lacks a bit of the Riyria charm and humor and replaces it with more generic characters.
Don't misunderstand me the book is still very good especially if you already know the Riyria books and I have some hope in Nevron becoming a narrating character and Persephone growing up.
Tim Gerald Reynolds was brilliant as always.

Solid start into the series

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Age of Myth gefallen?

Decent plotlines, intriguing yet obscure magics - impending crisis.
It needs to be seen how this tale is continued. The conflict portrayed in the first book evolved from a one dimensional David vs Goliath concept to a multilayered one.
Looking forward to the next release - how this base is built on.
Indeed multiple characters have been introduced with extraordinary potential plotwise!
Wait and see...
