Filip picked up his first fantasy novel when he was seven and hasn’t stopped reading since. A critical reader who judges novels on their technical use of language and plot alike, he has a soft spot for literary fiction and tragic, heroic tales.
In his free time, Filip writes fiction, makes gaming reviews on YouTube, and maintains a personal blog. All that when he’s not too busy going through piles of books in as short a time as possible.
When I read ‘They Mostly Come out at Night,’ the first in Benedict Patrick’s Yarnsworld novels, I was well impressed with what he did. I haven’t had the good fortune of reading up on the second and third books set in that world, but I would be little surprised if the fourth one isn’t the best one yet.
This novel is the first in the Yarnsworld series, a fictional universe created by Benedict Patrick. It’s also Patrick’s first ever self-published novel. As beginnings go, it’s pretty damn impressive…but it is not without its issues. That said, buckle up and read on as I discuss this thrilling mix of fantasy and fairy tale in another edition of The Good, The Bad, and the Meh!
DISCLAIMER: I received an e-ARC of Priest of Bones in return for an honest review.
I’ve never taken up reading so many books I knew next to nothing about as in the past half-year. This new way of reading for me has proven itself a most positive experience– I’ve discovered a number of fantastic new authors, indie and ‘mainstream’ alike! Sure, now and then I’ll read a book that is mired in errors, bad characterization and worse, but I find myself excited about so many novels to come from all these new names!
