Having spotted this on the Inn at the Crossroads blog, I was utterly intrigued and decided I simply had to add it to my reviews list. Firstly because it was being published by Random House, and not by Harper who publish A Song of Ice and Fire, and I was curious about why, and secondly […]

The world of Empire of the Saviours is a place where the people live under the control of the saints and, in turn, the saints work under the command of the saviours. The people are kept in their towns by the heroes, guards for the saints, and told it is for their own good, to […]

City of Dragons by Robin Hobb

It felt somewhat appropriate to review City of Dragons for Fantasy-Faction in answer to my review of the first book of this series that went live on the site in March. Although I’m skipping from volume one to volume three of the Rain Wilds Chronicles, it is perhaps apt to illustrate the marked difference in […]

The Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb

The Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb

In preparation for the release of the next book in the Rain Wild Chronicles this year, I decided to revisit the Cursed Shores and remind myself of the series so far. Hobb’s Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies remain my favourite books of all time and The Dragon Keeper takes us back to the same world, […]

Anne Lyle Interview

Anne Lyle Interview 

Anne Lyle grew up in Robin Hood’s England where she couldn’t help but be captivated by the heroic tales of old. She now balances her time between researching and writing fantasy based in Elizabethan England and working as a web developer – a beautiful juxtaposition of the historic versus the modern, which shows through in […]

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor

I first heard about this book when I got my hands on a graphic novel sampler of it at FantasyCon and then afterwards I kept hearing good things about it through its rampaging online campaign. Looking at it as a study into successful digital marketing would probably take up a whole article of its own. […]

The End Specialist by Drew Magary

The End Specialist by Drew Magary

When I saw the cover of this book – a simple yet striking image of a grim reaper impaled seemingly by his own scythe – I was instantly drawn in. “Who wants to live forever?” it asks underneath the image. I just had to know what this book was about. The back tells us that […]

The Measure of the Magic by Terry Brooks

Editor’s Note: This review contains some spoilers for the first book. If you haven’t finished the first book in the series, read with caution. The Measure of the Magic is the second in the Legends of Shannara duology. I began reading with perhaps not as much enthusiasm as one should, given this author’s standing amongst […]

Beyond The Pale by Mark Anthony

I stumbled across this book entirely by accident almost a decade ago when I was on a working holiday in Australia. I had been in Sydney for several weeks working temporary jobs, doing the tourist bit and sampling the delights of various backpacker hostels. It was a blast but I’d reached the point where I […]
