Age of War hits 10,000!

We are still 2 1/2 months out from the release, and I’m pleased to say that more than 10,000 people have added Age of War to their Goodreads shelves. Holy smokes!


I’m thrilled that people are learning about the new release, and I’ve been encouraged by the reviews left by early readers.

Here’s what Justine had to say (she won one of the ARC copies last month)

As I’ve come to expect from Michael J. Sullivan, the tale he is weaving grows in scope and gets more ambitious and brilliant with each subsequent novel. Unpredictable, at times heart-wrenching, and moments I did not see coming made this book a tough one to put down. Beautifully written, wonderfully paced, and emotionally charged, this is one you really need to read!

Oh, and a reminder that there are two more giveaways going on right now. See my previous post for details about them.

And thanks everyone,for showing your enthusiasm for the book. I can’t wait until everyone has a chance to read it.

Book Giveaways!

Hey all, Age of War is coming, and as such I have a few giveaways to tell you about.

  • First, there is a drawing for first edition copies of all three Legends of the First Empire books.   This is open to people from all countries and we’ll do the drawing at the end of June and ship the books in early July. There have been several printings of Age of Myth (and I think Age of Swords has also gone into at least one reprint) so this is an excellent chance to get books that might not be available anywhere else.
For people who are pre-ordering the book, I hope to have a pre-order promotion posted soon where you can receive some initial chapters of the new book as well as some bonus material. Stay tuned for that!


Recaps and Glossary

Hey all, did you know we are just 3 short months away from the release of Age of War?  I’m so excited to hear what you all think of the new novel. We are working hard to get information posted to help people “ramp up” quickly so I’ve added the following to this website.

The glossary is spoiler-free, so between it and the recap you should be up to speed and not need a re-read of Age of Myth or Age of Swords, but if you do re-read even better!

In the next few days I’ll also be posting some sample chapters, and we are going to be putting together some bonus stuff for people who pre-order so keep your eyes open for both of those.

Oh, and in case you need a recap for Age of Myth, here is a link for it as well.
