King of Ashes by Raymond E. Feist

So this is Feist’s first book outside Midkemia for an awfully long time. I was, and am, a huge fan of his even though the later books in the series had some serious issues. It’s fairly obvious from the start that he is trying to be a little edgier here. There is proper cursing, lots …

Wrath by John Gwynne

As this is the final book in a four book series I’ll keep it short and sweet. This was a great series. It is not the most original thing I have ever read, but everything it does that you might have seen before it does extremely well. It has heroes, proper heroes, and villains. For …

Ruin by John Gwynne

Another amazing book. I’m not going to go into too much detail as it’s the third book. If you’ve read this far you’ll continue, if not, it doesn’t matter. I love all the characters. I love the story. I’m kind of trying to draw it out I’m liking it this much. The author has no …

Valour by John Gwynne

Another great book, I’m really enjoying this series. We start off immediately after we left off on the previous book. I won’t go into too much details of the plot but after the end of the first book, things are not looking the best for our main protagonists. The first book was a little slow …

Malice by John Gwynne

This book was absolutely amazing, I didn’t know I had been wanting a book like this until I started it. It has an old school feel to it, it’s dark but not grim dark. Out main character is basically a good guy, weaknesses and flaws yes, but you root for him and he seems to …

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

About half way through this book I wasn’t sure I was liking it much. It started ok but there still didn’t seem like much was happening and considering this is such a short book that is not a good thing. However things started picking up and I really enjoyed the rest of it. We only …

The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan

I still have some quibbles with this series but I really enjoyed this concluding volume. I think this whole series only takes place over something like six months, so the pace has been pretty relentless and this book is no exception. I’m not going to go into too much plot details for fear of spoilers …

The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan

Another enjoyable entry in the series. We start off shortly after the events of the first book. Taniel is recovering from his injuries. Tamas is dealing with an impending Kez invasion. Adamat is still trying to get all of his family back and Nila is captive of Lord Vetas. Like the previous book the pace …

White Wolf by David Gemmell

I’ve read this book many times, Skilgannon is one of my favourite Gemmell characters. I think David Gemmell pretty much defined the modern heroic fantasy novel. There are a lot of similarities in his books and this is no exception. We have a warrior who has a dark past. And the main character really does …
