Tough Travels: Assassins 

Back in 2014, Nathan Barnhart created a weekly feature called ‘Tough Travels’, which he hosted over on Fantasy Review Barn. Inspired by The Tough Guide to Fantasyland by Diana Wynne Jones – a tongue-in-cheek parody of the fantasy genre – it would spotlight a different trope every week, and invite other bloggers to compile their […]

Brent Weeks Interview – The Blood Mirror

Brent Weeks Interview – The Blood Mirror 

Having met Brent Weeks and chatted with him a few times via email, I can tell you he is one of the nicest guys out there. Yes, he tortures us with his damned cliffhangers – which are not cliff hangers, as the interview explains – and he puts even the toughest, most loved characters through […]

Brent Weeks, although not the greatest prose stylist ever, knows how to give his readership a great story, engrossing characters, powerful shocking twists, and possibly the greatest pacing known to the fantasy genre.

Intro & Recap I admit that when Brent Weeks announced he was going to take a break from the Night Angel world – leaving behind incredible characters such as Kylar, Durzo and Viridiana – I sighed. In fact, I thought he was crazy. I mean, I don’t have access to Brent’s bank account (despite a number […]

Brent Weeks Interview 

Running a fantasy blog, I’m often asked who my favourite authors are. Upon giving my answers, people are often surprised that the likes of Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, J.R.R. Tolkien and so on aren’t in my top 5 (or even 10). I think it’s because when I started reading fantasy it was because I […]

Brent Weeks is author of what I consider the best fantasy trilogy of all time. The Night Angel Trilogy really seemed to have it all. You had a complex plot, multiple subplots, hot women, incredible and vivid action, intense relationships and all was contained within an enjoyable style of writing. Mr. Weeks earlier this year […]

Earlier this year I read The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. I have to say that it is one of the very best fantasy trilogies I have ever read. I felt things for those characters I have never felt before in a book. I really felt I knew them and cared about what happened […]

Fantasy-Faction’s Reading List for 2011 

Well we are approaching the end of the year. *sigh* And in 2010 I didn’t read nearly as much as I was intending to. In order to ensure this doesn’t happen again, for 2011 I am putting together a reading list of the best fantasy novels. These are books that people have been telling me […]

It takes a special kind of author to write three books and have them sold consecutively on a monthly basis. Typically, a fantasy trilogy will take between three and four years from the first book until the last book is released. This allows time for readers to finish a book, have a bit of a […]
