If you've been following my Booknest updates, you'll probably know that I haven't shut up about this series for almost a month already. The Faithful And the Fallen by John Gwynne, it baffles me that not a lot of readers know about this fantastic epic fantasy series. Right after I finished reading Malice, the first book in the series, I decided to ask for an interview opportunity with John himself, which he kindly agreed to do. However, I made up my mind to at least finish the series first before I proceed with it because sometimes, let's face it, the last book in a series could ruin your enjoyment of the entire series altogether.
Right after I finished Wrath, I realized that notion has been kicked to outer space. Each book in the series is superior from its predecessor, you can find my spoiler-free review for each installments here on Booknest. Without further ado, here's my interview with John Gwynne, about his series, his writing process, book recommendation and what's next.
Rating: 4.5/5 stars (Half-star taken off for a slow start. But man, did that ever change.)
Move over, Martin, because Gwynne is here to steal yo’ girl.
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Masterpiece. Mark my words, if this series ever get adapted into a television series with the same production value for Game of Thrones, it will create a myriad of fan base all over the world. Watch out GRRM, while you’re waiting for the breeze from the 'Winds of Winter' to come, John Gwynne has appeared out of nowhere and he has conquered the genre, the apprentice has become the master.
