Can't Wait Wednesday #9 - Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings and spotlights the books we are excited about and have yet to read. This meme is based on Waiting on Wednesday which is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.

I can't wait for... Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

Expected Publication: June 20th, 2017
by Del Rey

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 can't wait: 
This is the sequel to Age of Myth which I read in 2016 and freaking loved. It my first time reading this 'fantasy master' but I was blown away by his writing style, his worldbuilding skills, and his characters. Sullivan writes every single book in his series before publishing the first so you don't have to worry about plot holes or inconsistencies.
This series is set 3000 years before his previously written Riyria Chronicles and is about a man (aka Rhune) who murders a Fhrey whom Rhune's believe to be invincible. As the murderer flees for his life from the land of the Fhrey, he finds himself in the company of several interesting characters.
Seriously, I cannot wait to continue this series and read more by this author to ascertain my love for his books.
