The man who became known as Esrahaddon is reported to have destroyed the world’s greatest empire—but there are those who believe he saved it. Few individuals are as divisive, but all agree on three facts: He was exiled to the wilderness, hunted by a goblin priestess, and sentenced to death by a god—all before the age of eight. How he managed to survive and why people continued to fear his name a thousand years later has always been a mystery…until now.
From the three-time New York Times best-selling author Michael J. Sullivan, Esrahaddon is the final novel in the Rise and Fall trilogy. This latest set of stories sits snugly between the Legends of the First Empire series and the Riyria books (Revelations and Chronicles). With this tale, Michael continues his tradition of unlikely heroes who must rise to the call when history knocks, demanding to be let in. This is the 19th full-length novel in a body of work that started in 2008 and spans four series.
Back with a bang and a very big one at that, Michael J. Sullivan continues to deliver amazing stories one after the other from his beautiful world of Elan.
Esrahaddan is absolutely fantastic and is the third and final book from the Rise and Fall trilogy. Everything Mr. Sullivan writes turns to gold, and if you haven’t read Esrahaddan yet, oh my, are you for one tasty treat.
Beautifully written new characters that you will love, plenty of surprises, humour and twists, and turns that will keep you hooked from the start right up to the last page. Damn everything this author writes is an absolute pleasure to read.
In this final book where you see the history and events that lead and bring us to the first series, the Riyria Revelations. It is like a jigsaw puzzle when you see it all come together. It was fun and unexpected with every turn of the page.
Michael J. Sullivan is a master of his trade and continually weaves his magic and creates so many characters is truly out standing. A lot of his characters are so relatable, and I have loved every minute I’ve spent in this world, laughing and crying along the way.
Is this book we meet the man who ended the empire, or did he. We get to see a young Esrahaddan grow and become the legend and one of most feared wizards of his time.
After being banished from his village of Haddon at seven years of age after a couple of magical accidents without his realisation, he finds him befriending three Uber ran Ghazel, Dank, Niblik, and Mashy, who took him in and deliver him to Hakkabah, who adopted him as her own son.
Now a powerful wizard and a member of the ancient order of the Cenzars of the Empire, an old nemesis is back, Mawyndule up to his old tricks, a two thousand year old vendetta against the Empire will stop at nothing to see it destroyed.
Truly excellent storytelling and for all you fantasy and Riyria fans, this is a must-read. Very highly recommended…..😁⚡️🗡💀
