Find out what the must-read fantasy books are over the 2017 year! 2017 looks to be an interesting year for fantasy book releases.

And here we have it: at the end of another year. And what does that mean? It means yet another Best Fantasy Books Year in Review list, written by yours truly, Ben aka the lazy fantasy book critic who occasionally writes best lists. Now following last year’s format (when I somehow managed to cook up […]

Five things we’d like to see from Fantasy in 2016

by Jon Snow

2014 was a great year in fantasy, lots of big names came to play. The likes of Lynch were back, Hobb brought back Fitz and a new epic fantasy and new player called Brian Staveley emerged. Fast forward to the present day and I would say that 2015 was a fizzer compared with 2014. Besides […]

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 […]

Review: Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb

by Jon Snow

Robin Hobb has without a doubt in my mind already written the most well rounded character in the history of fantasy. There are not many books that write a protagonist that are in more than 3 books and span over several decades. With Fitzchivalry Farseer, we get to meet him from a little “orphan” boy […]

by Ben

This year we are going to break down fantasy into a number of different categories and pick a winner and list the runners-up. I think is a good way of putting in a list of good reads because when you do a top down list, it doesn’t promote great books that are near the bottom […]

BFB Moderators Best of 2014

by Ben

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 […]

Review: Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb

by Ben

I am going to do this review in 200 words (not including these)  as there are other more detailed reviews to come and I don’t want to over load you. The pace is incredibly slow, throughout the whole book but if you are reading it to know about Fitz’s life post the Tawny Man Trilogy […]
