Breaking News: Peter V. Brett announces ‘Skull Throne’ release date

Just a week after Fantasy-Faction’s Grim gathering, Peter V. Brett has shared some VERY exciting news: Seeing as Peat only just finished the novel (like, literally a few weeks ago) that date will be quite an impressive turn around; either Peter’s writing is REALLY, REALLY polished by the time he sends the book in or […]

We here at Fantasy-Faction are huge fans of Peter V. Brett’s Demon Cycle books.

Peter V. Brett’s Latest Bulgarian Cover

We were lucky enough to run the cover reveal of Peter V. Brett’s The Daylight War a few years back and that was a phenomenal cover. To be honest, I didn’t think the artists version of Inevera could be beaten at the time, but this recently released cover from Peat’s Bulgarian publisher – Colibri – […]

Judge A Book By Its Cover – An Interview with Larry Rostant

Judge A Book By Its Cover – An Interview with Larry Rostant 

I never intended to buy The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett. I was walking through a bookshop intent on picking up something else, most probably a crime novel. I hadn’t read a fantasy novel in a long time. But the cover caught my eye and stopped me in my tracks. The hooded man glared […]

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. Creating a fantasy world that drags you in and has an atmosphere that terrifies you and yet keeps you gripped […]
