There's this term we are using in the Grimdark Fiction Readers & Writers fb group, called "Grimdark AF". A term to identify the grimdarkest of grimdarks. As grimdark as it gets. GRIMDARK AS FUCK. I believe it deserves to be a sub-genre of Grimdark Fantasy, and Godblind may as well be the very first novel classified as such. 

Rhyming Rings

David Gemmell was one of the greatest fantasy authors of the last century. Apparently he excelled in thrillers as well.

Jesse Teller is a new voice in Grimdark fantasy, and if you like your books dark and bloody as hell, then he might as well be your new favorite author.

Tyrant's Throne (Greatcoats #4)
30, Apr

I have to admit that when I first-started this series, I wasn't the biggest fan, but times change, and people (change) with them. Greatcoats is now one of my favorite series of all times. 

The Seven (The Vagrant, #3)
21, Apr

  
To publish your debut and manage to make it stand out among a myriad of other fantasy books isn’t an easy feat. 

To follow up in its success with a second installment which will be as good as the first and without suffering the middle-book syndrome is even harder. 

But to close the series, tie all loose ends, provide a satisfying ending as well as a crave for more, and most of all, avoid anticlimax, requires a vast amount of talent. Not only does Peter Newman succeed in doing so, but he also teaches you how it’s done.

Kings of the Wyld (The Band, #1)
04, Mar

 I may be taking a risk here, what with being still on March and all that, but I'll declare Kings of the Wyld debut of the year. 

Swarm and Steel (Manifest Delusions #3)
04, Mar

Fletcher's new stand-alone novel in the world of Manifest Delusions is, simply said, mind-blowing. Literally. 

The Heart of Stone
18, Feb

The Heart of Stone is the first book of Ben Galley that I ever got to read, and oh-boy do I ache for more.

Veiled Intentions (The Dragon's Blade #2)
07, Feb

Veiled Intentions is a richly imagined, powerful and poignant story, and a stairway that Miller both built and ascended, leaving the land of the good and joining the band of the great.
