Fantasy Fiction has an ever-evolving nature. Throughout the years there has been a number of prominent authors who had the ability to alter its natural course. Some of them heavily influenced the genre to the point that whole new sub-genres were created, and others nudged it to a new direction ever so slightly that was barely even noticeable, but helped modernize the genre all the same. Peter Newman is one of the latest.
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.
