  1. Hi there Dom. Just found your blog and tend to have a lot of the same opinions about many of the books you review. I am always looking for new tips on what I might enjoy reading, hence why I was searching and found this page. I shall be back for some guidance 🙂 I also found Gemmell and Feist work the most entertaining and favourites. More recently, I likeWeeks, Gwynne, Brett and Ryan novels as first rate newcomers. I’m just reading the wheel of time series now and taking a break as there is so much to get through, although I do love marathon reads!

    I can’t say I enjoyed Abercrombie books I have read or read much of the Mark Lawrence’s book which I started….. If you get bored or fed up with some of the newer books coming out, you might want to check out Melanie Rawn’s dragon prince, dragon star and exiles series if you haven’t read them before. It’s been a while since I did. Interesting to see what you’re take on them would be. Also, the axis trilogy and subsequent connected series by Sara Douglass was worth looking at, although it has been years since I read these too.
    Cheers.

    • Hi Donald, thanks for checking in. I’ve not looked in to Douglass, but I have Dragon Prince and Dragon Scroll (plus one random other) by Melanie Rawn on my bookshelf. I quite enjoyed them both, though I can’t remember much about them now. I did get my hands on book 3 in that series but for some reason just never got around to reading it before it went back to the library (my wife managed to find it there and get it out).

      Cheers,
