Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) 16, Mar

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.

Wrath (The Faithful And the Fallen #4) 09, Mar

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Masterpiece. Mark my words, if this series ever get adapted into a television series with the same production value for Game of Thrones, it will create a myriad of fan base all over the world. Watch out GRRM, while you’re waiting for the breeze from the 'Winds of Winter' to come, John Gwynne has appeared out of nowhere and he has conquered the genre, the apprentice has become the master.

Ruin (The Faithful And the Fallen #3) 05, Mar

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Intense, brutal, gory, poignant, epic, filled with love and vengeance, John Gwynne simply can do no wrong. 

‘Two for vengeance. One for Love.’

Ruin, the third book in The Faithful and the Fallen series is an example of how a penultimate epic fantasy book ought to be written. It’s again, better than its predecessors, making this the best book in the series so far. I still have one book left to read and yet this series already took the throne I bestowed upon my previous favorite dark fantasy, The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie.
