Age of Empyre

Age of Empyre (The Legends of the First Empire #6)Age of Empyre by Michael J. Sullivan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fhrey have their own dragons and intend to set them against Nyphron and his forces. Imaly's plot is in place and Malcolm's plan seems to be unraveling. It's a race against time to see if Rhunes will survive.

Age of Empyre was a really strong conclusion to The Legends of the First Empire. Michael J. Sullivan does a masterful job at displaying the history of his world in a thought provoking and at times heartbreaking way. I wasn't expecting happy ever after, but I'm devastated at the outcomes I didn't see coming.

The character development was really excellent throughout this series. This book just makes it so much more meaningful. Suri, Brin, and Malcolm were the three characters who I found most compelling. Seeing Suri become everything that Arion wanted was magnificent. I was so happy to see her that way. Brin was so much stronger than I ever imagined. I absolutely loved what the author did with Malcolm. He answered so many questions, clarified so many things from Riyria Revelations, and yet left readers with a much larger question that I certainly didn't see coming.

I truly enjoyed Age of Empyre and The Legends of the First Empire series. I'm also really glad to know that the author is not done telling stories in this world yet.

4.5 out of 5 stars
