Empire of the Dead by Phil Tucker

Empire of the Dead by Phil Tucker
4.5

Gilgamesh meets Oceans 11 meets The Walking Dead. As much as I raved about Phil Tucker’s Chronicles of the Black Gate, you would think I would’ve jumped at his Empire of the Dead, book one of the Godsblood Trilogy. You would be wrong. Partially. I actually one-click bought the book when it first came out, […]

Worldbuilding Round Table with Jonathan French, Alec Hutson, and Phil Tucker

Worldbuilding Round Table with Jonathan French, Alec Hutson, and Phil Tucker 

Of the fantasy books I have read this year, three of my favorites have been Alec Hutson’s Crimson Queen, Jonathan French’s The Grey Bastards (winner of SPFBO 2016), and Phil Tucker’s The Path of Flames (SPFBO 2016 finalist). All have received both critical acclaim and reader adoration. What drew me into their worlds was how […]
