An excellent epic fantasy centred around the three children of the Annurian emperor following his assassination. Engaging characters and a nicely rounded plot, continues in book two."I don't suppose there's any way you can dim those eyes of yours. It's nice that a goddess fucked your great-great-gra...

After reading fantasy for most of my life, I’ve seen more than a few “Next Big Thing” come along. Some of those hyped novels and series have lived up to the tile, but more than a few have crumbled under the expectations. At least, in my eyes they did. And so when I kept seeing people rave about Bria...

This story had a lot of very good elements, but for the life of me I couldn't get into it. I found it incredibly boring at moments, so much so, that it took me three days to read it. It had all the makings of an epic fantasy, but the plot just didn't develop fast enough for me, and even that would b...

I'd had this book on my 'to buy' list since the spring, I think, but I never managed to fit it into the book budget. Finally, my son gave it to me for Christmas - YAY!! I was looking forward to reading it, so it was the first of my Christmas books that I cracked. It began slowly, I have to say...

When 2013 was at the end and various websites published the lists of most anticipated fantasy books in 2014, The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley was on every one of them. I dare you to find the one without it! :) Also, those lucky bloggers who got early review copies sang praises and showered it ...
