Best Fantasy Books of 2015: BFB Staff Picks

by Jon Snow

Note that this isn’t the official BFB top 2015 list. A lot of the staff don’t read 2015 published books, so don’t be frustrated that your favourite is not on here. What this is, is a good indication of what books are probably worth reading and what is not. @sneakyburrito In no particular order: The Vagrant […]

Something we’ve done this year is to keep a record of the 2015 books that forum members have read. If they feel so inclined, they give the book a rating. Note that some forum members who have read the book, decided not to vote but wrote a review instead, as they don’t like giving books […]

Upcoming Books in February 2015

by Ben

Hope everyone had a good rest and spent time with family and friends in Dec/Jan. Obviously there have been some great books in Jan with Firefight, Golden Son and Providence of Fire among many others.

Review: The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan

by Ben

The Crimson Campaign is the sequel to what was probably the best debut fantasy novel in 2013, Promise of Blood. There was a lot to live up to in my opinion. I really enjoyed the first book, it felt Sanderson-esque to me and in certain parts (characterization) McClellan was better than Sanderson. The story begins […]

Best Fantasy Reads of 2013

by Ben

It really doesn’t matter what you do with these kinds of lists, you can’t please everyone and that certainly isn’t our aim. A couple of readers thought our Worst list was terrible.
