For such a long time, I had only read around 10 individual series or books in the fantasy genre. Only in 2018 and 2019 did I start to read new authors and branch out into other areas of fantasy. Over the past two years, I’ve had a few authors and series on my radar, and
When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire
A couple of years ago, I read my first Stephen King story, Elevation. It’s a short novella and I loved it. It was beautiful and the characters were delicately complex – I promised myself then that I would read more Stephen King. Well, it’s been two years and I’m yet to fulfil that promise! So,
Everyone who tells you that the first books are worth burning through is right. I’m aware that there are still some future books that may well fall flat, but that’s not going to stop me from reading the rest of this series. Now that I’ve see what Butcher was capable of when this book was written, I am so excited to see what the future books have to offer.
New readers of Sanderson, however, might be feeling a little overwhelmed. There are, after all, around 20 books and several series, all intermingling in one way or another. You don’t want to spoil any surprised by reading them in the wrong order, but you also don’t want to read a book that just has way to much going on and you put it down, never to read a Sanderson book ever again.
Harry Dresden has faced some pretty terrifying foes during his career. Giant scorpions. Oversexed vampires. Psychotic werewolves. It comes with the territory when you’re the only professional wizard in the Chicago-area phone book. But in all Harry’s years of supernatural sleuthing, he’s never faced anything like this: The spirit world has gone postal. All over
There are so many fantasy books and series that I have never read and want to get around to, but despite that taking up a lot of my reading time there are also books and series that I want to read again. Why? Well, the main reason is because I’ve forgotten what happened in the
Business has been slow. Okay, business has been dead. And not even of the undead variety. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn’t been able to dredge up any kind of work–magical or mundane. But just when it looks like
Many viewers of the TV show who have never read the books, probably decided never to even think about the world of Westeros ever again, let alone read the books! I want to inspire you to read the books because they are incredible.
Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago’s first (and only) Wizard P.I. Turns out that ‘everyday’ world is full of strange and magical things – and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Harry is the best at what he does – and not just because he’s the only one who does
If you’re reading this, you’re probably stuck in your house. You can leave once a day but other than that you’re staring at a wall, wondering when it’s all going to end. Or, you’re from the future and you’re so glad this is all over…
The Poppy War is a very strong beginning to a fantasy series. The main character and the cast of characters are fantastically realised. The world is a breath of fresh air in the genre, and the magic system is intriguing, but perhaps not totally original. If you like grimdark, then pick up this book.
The world gets SO much bigger and we meet new characters (some a little recognisable), new cities, and new… places. I can’t get into spoilers here, but I have to emphasise that I did love this book
