New Book Discoveries
In the spirit of sharing more ‘discoveries’ with one another, This short review on Black Gate caught my eye as a potentially interesting fantasy series.
The big thing I look for in fantasy is a well-drawn, creative setting (and here most contemporary fantasies let me down, being either historio-fantasy or Tolkien pastiches). I also want a riveting plot, endearing characters, and great writing - so not asking too much. I can’t tell how much of that is in this novel, but it seems to at least have the setting, and a lot of bloggers like it fwiw.
