    The Liar's Key - Mark Lawrence

    Like I said in the other thread: Just like in the previous book there's a lot of traveling, but unlike Prince of Fools other aspects take over halfway through the book. The second part of the book is without a doubt the most fun. Florence is the economic heart of the Broken Empire. There are as...

    The travel thread

    In response to @Khartun's question about suggestions of what to visit in New Orleans I thought we could expand that idea and talk about the places we visited, what we liked, what we didn't and so on. We can also showcase where we have been, so we might learn about new places. This summer I'm...

    Uprooted by Naomi Novik

    review This book felt like a traditional fantasy book crossed over with a old (albeit slightly darker and Grimm-esque) folk tale. I liked the themes and the structure of the book (training in the tower/capital/battle+resolution). The characters are good, but I didn't like how the Dragon was...

    Those Above by Daniel Polansky

    Good things: - Eloquent prose - Interesting themes - Strong worldbuilding Less good thing: - telling us things, not showing us - three, consecutive chapters with people getting up and morning rituals: dull! - 2 of the four pov-characters are cardboard thin: Bas is a general but apart from the...

    Dust of Dreams - book club

    I'm admittedly a bit further than most of the people her on the forum, apart from a few. I'm going to do something here that's just mad - I'm about to speculate about some of the hints Erikson dropped in the previous eight books and the prologue of DoD: Anyway, I'm ready to embark on this...

    So what's new on the fantasy frontier?

    I thought it would be great if we could post about all the new books, anthologies, news snippets, potential movie adaptations etc. concerning the fantasy genre. Something like this: Brandon Sanderson to release original graphic novel trilogy set in the Cosmere Brandon Sanderson has announced...
