Rating: 4.5/5 stars (Half-star taken off for a slow start. But man, did that ever change.)
Move over, Martin, because Gwynne is here to steal yo’ girl.
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
Have you ever got the feeling that after reading the first book in a series, you just know that there's a huge potential for the series to become one of your favorite series of all time? Malice, the first book out of four in The Faithful And the Fallen series by John Gwynne is one of those rare cases for me.
Malice is certainly a traditional epic fantasy with a medieval-like setting; it has a lot of twists and turns – my heart was racing for most of the read! – and characters, political intrigue – this book is not for the faint-hearted, you would not believe how many snakes are out there – and a “God-War” approaching! The long and the short of it, I loved it! 5 starts out of 5!
