Hope And Red by Jon Skovron

Hope And Red by Jon Skovron
4.5

The short version: Hope And Red is the most fun book I’ve read in 2016 and one of the first I will recommend to people, from now on, who ask for a book similar to that of Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastards series or Brent Weeks’s Night Angel trilogy.  Are you missing the world of Brent […]

Confirmation The Thorn Of Emberlain is delayed 

Over the past few weeks, we’d been hearing a few whispers from our friends in publishing that Scott Lynch’s The Thorn Of Emberlain probably wouldn’t make the September 2016 release date. A few members of our Facebook Group picked up on these rumours too and expressed their disappointment, but understanding towards Scott’s real life issues. Phil, for […]

Stranger Of Tempest by Tom Lloyd

Stranger Of Tempest by Tom Lloyd
4.25

If you could judge a book by its cover then Tom Lloyd’s Stranger of Tempest would be one of the finest books of the year, unquestionably. However, we all know that doing this – judging a book by its cover – is a sin. So, instead, you need to read the thousands upon thousands of […]

False Hearts by Laura Lam

False Hearts by Laura Lam
4.5

How would you react if the most important person in your life was being accused of a murder you know they couldn’t possibly have committed? How far would you go beyond your comfort zone to prove them innocent? Would you risk your future, even your life, to save theirs? Taema and Tila were born as conjoined […]

13 more hours of Game of Thrones…. 

The countdown has begun… Game of Thrones show creator David Benioff has told the world: “It’s two more seasons we’re talking about[.] From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now.” We’ve already had 60 hours, so this means that […]

Superfan Interview: Malazan Book of the Fallen

Superfan Interview: Malazan Book of the Fallen 

Welcome to the first edition of Fantasy-Faction’s Superfan Interviews feature. The concept of this brand new feature is simple: go out, find some Superfans and interview them about why they appreciate an author’s work as much as they do. This feature has a place near to my heart, because I consider myself a Superfan of […]

Help Fantasy-Faction do cool things! =)

Help Fantasy-Faction do cool things! =) 

Fantasy-Faction has a Patreon page! For years, people have been suggesting we set something like this up, but we’ve always held off. I’ve seen Patreon as a great website for artists, but one that you need to have some great rewards or wild ambitions in order to justify. Well, this year I’ve come to the […]

Cover Reveal for Jay Kristoff’s “Nevernight”

Cover Reveal for Jay Kristoff’s “Nevernight” 

I’ve been a huge fan of Jay Kristoff’s since reading Stormdancer back in 2012. Admittedly, the themes of Japan, Martial Arts, Fantasy, Mythical Creatures and Technology pretty much answered my prayers… but the writing style, the kick ass characters, the fun and keep-you-guessing plot were surely enjoyed by most fantasy readers too. Of course, I’ve […]

Dominion Cover Reveal & Extract

Dominion Cover Reveal & Extract 

A lot of Fantasy-Factioners will have read and enjoyed Peter McLean’s Drake by now. If you’ve not, it’s about an anti-hero named Don Drake who is forced to carry out an assassination to pay his debt to a demon. There is a catch to this transaction though, and very quickly Drake finds himself facing death at […]
