As you must know, I loved the Raven’s Shadow trilogy by Anthony Ryan. It took me a while to really sink into the world, but once I had, I couldn’t put the books down, and ripped through them. They were everything I loved and had been craving for in epic fantasy for what felt like ages: battles, a complex, fully characterized world, mythology, mad queens and conniving princesses, battles…and an Aragorn like idealistic protagonist, a nice change from the morally compromised ‘heroes’ of Martin’s realm.
Today I received the first book of Ryan’s new series, The Waking Fire. The reviews I’ve seen so far are very promising, and I can’t wait to get started! Get a load of that cover!
Review coming soon!
