BFB Moderators Best of 2014

Laurentius’s List Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson My favourite of 2014. WoR, like Way of Kings, is a huge monster of a book. I loved it nearly as much as I did Way of Kings. The continuation of the story of Kaladin Stormblessed is almost as good as the WoK. I have never been a […]

One of them even though we were deliberately stirring the pot! Anyways, our Best list is massive…as it should be…hence our name! Take […]

Book Review: The Way of the Shadow (Brent Weeks)

by Ben

Assassin’s Apprentice, Mathew Stoover’s Tales of the Otori. Week’s effort is something new though. It’s assassins with a whole lot action and a whole lot of magic.
