The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch Book Review 02, Jun

THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA by Scott Lynch is one of my three current favorite unfinished series. It is up there with A Song of Ice and Fire and The Kingkiller Chronicles. Mind you, the first book has a benefit of being perfectly able to stand upon its own and if you wanted to just read it then you wouldn't really be depriving yourself of a vast unfinished mystery. Scott Lynch also has his reasons for delaying his publication of the 4th book which I certainly can't fault him. Still, I'm going to say this is a must-read for both fantasy as well as grimdark fantasy fans. It is not only brilliantly written but horrifying as well as gut-bustingly funny.

The Rise of the Nazil (The Rise of the Nazil #1) by Aaron Michael Hall Book Review 31, May


THE RISE OF NAZIL is an epic fantasy novel depicting the conflict and relationships between the pale white-haired Nazil race with the more diverse human population around them. The Nazil are a racist, imperialist, and corrupt slave-holding race which all other people live in terror of. However, not all of them are without honor and a chance encounter (or perhaps not so chance encounter) between a young woman named Brahanu and the First Chosen of the Nazil changes the destiny of the nation forever.
