    It’s July 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    You will not be disappointed. Quantic Dream also created Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. It's more or less like the Telltale Walking Dead games, but with AAA graphics, set in a near future. Great story and fantastic game. Game of the year to me. If you haven't watched it yet, look at the...

    It's June 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Finally summer! I just finished the newest Alex Verus book, Marked. A little lackluster compared to the previous book, but I'll take it. When you cant get any Dresden Files, atleast there's other stuff in a similar vein, of a decent quality. If you like the Alex Verus series, Marked is not a...

    The Dark Tower trailer

    I might be in the minority here, but I liked the trailer. Read the books and didnt love em. Didnt even like most of the books, but finished the series, only to be disappointed there as well. Theyve said theyre not making a straight adaptation, and even though it looks a bit simplistic, Ive...

    April is Read Self Published Month

    My favourite selfpublished fantasy is probably Blood Song by Anthony Ryan, followed by the two Zero Sight books by B. Justin Shier. They read a lot like a Dresden Files, following a young Harry Dresden. Any of you guys got a rec?

    The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan

    OK, I have officially finished the book. No spoilers below My thoughts: There's two story arcs, written much like Tower Lord and Queen of Fire. But the upside is, that we're not left hanging waiting to discover what happens to Vaelyn Al Sorna. I only really found the arc of one of the main...

    Burned by Benedict Jacka

    I think this series has been too predictable since book one. The whole setup is deus ex machina. He can see into the future, and has the ability to avoid all end everything. How can he ever be in any danger or get in trouble? Also, Alex Verus keeps claiming he is so weak, while all other...

    Im still here, although only infrequently. I peep in once or twice a week usually. I still read books though. Life caught up to me, so got busy with lots of other stuff. Maybe we should do a bookclub again soon-ish?

    LGBTQ Fantasy

    Personally, I dont mind at all if you make it a category, but I dont see the point either. As many have said, it's 2016. I would rather just call it good or bad books. Being gay is fine, and so is a gay main char. I suggest adding the Painted Man/Warded man series to the list. If you are in...
