This year though we’ve had Kelley Armstrong, Brandon Sanderson, Martha Wells, Peter V. Brett, Patrick Rothfuss and so, so many more besides releasing stand-alone […]

Never mind variety, anticipation is the true spice of life and is something Peter V. Brett really knows how to inspire. We waited with baited breath for the third instalment of Brett’s Demon Cycle, and true to form he rewarded his fans generously for their patience.

Last year I reluctantly read The Painted Man. I say reluctantly because everyone told me that I had to read it but based on the tagline, ‘Sometimes, there is very good reason to be afraid of the dark,’ and the generic hooded figure on the cover it looked like another run of the mill fantasy […]

The Painted Man and The Desert Spear are among my favourite books ever written. Not only is the story absolutely brilliant, but Peter V. Brett’s writing is just simply, what I like to call: readable.
