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 […]

Interview with Sylvain Neuvel

Interview with Sylvain Neuvel 

I was lucky enough to get a super-early Advanced Review Copy of Sleeping Giants. It was a book that immediately grabbed me and kept hold of me until I turned the final page. For anyone who has read The Three by Sarah Lotz, the style is rather similar. We are presented articles, transcripts and logs […]

Excerpt from ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’ – A short story from Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie

Excerpt from ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’ – A short story from Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie 

There are very few authors that Fantasy-Faction forum users and Facebook group members talk about more than Joe Abercrombie. There are many reasons for this, but in addition to truly enjoying his books, there is a feeling amongst the community that Joe Abercrombie is at least part responsible for the favourable direction that our genre has headed […]

Dragon Hunters by Marc Turner

Dragon Hunters by Marc Turner
4

The first book in Marc Turner’s Chronicles of Exile series, When The Heavens Fall, got an array of positive reviews when it was released in 2015. We found it to be a Malazan style epic with nods to the fantasy of days gone by. Although this hit the spot for readers who like the big, sprawling epics being […]

Snakewood by Adrian Selby

Snakewood by Adrian Selby
2.5

Snakewood is one of those books that will have plenty of fans and plenty of haters too. When an author tries to do something unique or far-reaching it will either impress you or turn you off. The ‘magic system’ in Snakewood means that there is a great deal of mind/body altering substances (potions) in use. […]

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

The first question I expect you to ask about City of Blades is: ‘Does it live up to the Locus, World Fantasy, British Fantasy and GoodReads Choice Award nominated City of Stairs?’ Well, that’s a good question, my friends… Allow me to answer it with an emphatic YES and quickly follow it up with the promise that it truly is […]

Chinese Mistborn Cover

Chinese Mistborn Cover 

We’ve featured work from Jian Guo before when we highlighted his incredible Chinese covers for Book of the New Sun and The Lord of The Rings. It seems China liked their dose of classic English-language fantasy and crave some more, this time something more modern in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn. Yet again, Guo’s talents have been called […]
