The Price of Faith (The Ties That Bind #3) 05, Mar

3.5/5

THE PRICE OF FAITH is the third volume of THE TIES THAT BIND and the end of that trilogy set in Rob Hayes' fantastic sword and sorcery world. It has events which are bound to tick some readers off and bound to excite others. Is it worth the purchase? In the end, I leave it up to my review to let readers decide.

The Colour of Vengeance (The Ties that Bind #2) 19, Feb

5/5

THE COLOUR OF VENGEANCE is the sequel to THE HERESY WITHIN and the second novel of THE TIES THAT BIND trilogy by Rob J. Hayes. It follows the adventures of the Black Thorn, a murderous bandit who is possibly the strongest man in the world but utterly unable to control himself or his tempers. The Black Thorn has been betrayed by his fellows and is not going to stop until he gets his revenge.

The Heresy Within (The Ties That Bind #1) 08, Feb

4/5

THE HERESY WITHIN is my first grimdark novel and was a book which introduced me to the idea that fantasy could be more than just good guys, bad guys, and magic swords. Well, no, actually it was GAME OF THRONES but this this was my SECOND grimdark novel that told me such things weren't just one-off products which couldn't be replicated. This is a novel full of sex, swearing, blood, and morally repugnant but somehow still likable anti-heroes
