10 Fantasy Books On My TBR List

10 Fantasy Books On My TBR List

I love fantasy, so as you can imagine, my fantasy TBR list is pretty extensive! Whether it’s continuing beloved series, or starting new and intriguing ones, there’s so many books I want to get to, that it’s really hard to know where to start. I feel like I shouldn’t be starting new series before I’ve finished ones I’m already reading, but sometimes it’s just so tempting! Anyway, here’s just a small selection of books of my fantasy TBR. Some of them have been on there since forever, and others are relatively new additions to the list: ‘The Seer of Sevenwaters’… Read more »

Review: Mistress of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

Review: Mistress of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

‘Too many events in this Empire twisted in upon themselves, until centuries of unbending customs led their society towards stagnation and entropy.’ Warning: Minor Spoilers. In this final book in Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts Empire trilogy the level of political intrigue rises (a feat I didn’t think possible after the events of Servant of the Empire) along with the stakes to make this the most exciting book in the entire series. Mara, now Servant of the Empire (an adopted member of the Emperor’s family and an almost mythical figure, adored by the masses) is living in tranquility with… Read more »

My Top Five Fantasy Worlds

My Top Five Fantasy Worlds

It’s no secret to my regular blog readers that I adore fantasy: I just love how through it we can leave behind the mundane world of jobs, schools and grimy towns to discover new, fantastical worlds where magic is rife and literally anything could happen. In fact, the vividness and inventiveness of the world in which a fantasy story is set is one of the primary ways I judge it, whether that world is colourful and enchanting, or gritty and dark. Hence why I thought doing a round up of five of my all time favourite fantasy worlds would make a… Read more »

Review: Servant of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

Review: Servant of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

‘Checking her anger, she spoke in measured tones. ‘You are not a “captive”. You are my property.’ Kevin studied Mara’s face, ‘No.’ A grin lit his features, rendered wicked and humourless by the anger that lay behind. ‘Your captive. Nothing more. Never anything more.’ After reading and loving the first book in Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts Empire Trilogy, I went straight back to the library the following day to check out the second book, and was over a hundred pages in after the first day. I enjoyed this book just as much as the first, and whoever has already checked the… Read more »

Review: Daughter of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

Review: Daughter of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

‘A voice rang out. ‘We seek the Lady of the Acoma!’ The Lady of the Acoma. Like a cold knife plunged into the pit of her stomach, the words cut through Mara’s soul. That one sentence forever changed her life.’ Way back when I first started this blog, I posted a review of Raymond E. Feist’s amazing Riftwar Saga, and was recommended in the comments to check out the Empire Trilogy that he had co-written with fellow fantasy author Janny Wurts. Well, over a year later and I’ve finally made a start on this series, and I really wish I… Read more »

Review: The Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist

Review: The Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist

‘All eyes turned to see Kuglan the magician step forward. ‘I have need of an apprentice and would call Pug, orphan of the keep, to service.’’ Last summer I read the entirety of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, devouring book after book in quick succession. I wanted to watch Game of Thrones, as I was curious to see what all the fuss was about, and I hate watching things before I’ve read the book. As a result I ended up on a bit of a fantasy kick, and so while waiting for the long-time-coming Winds of… Read more »
