  7. in no particular order as I genuinely can’t separate them in terms of quality

    One of our Thursdays is missing – Jasper Fforde
    The Buried Giant – yes Mr Ishiguro, despite what you say, a novel with dragons, mystical knights, strange boatmen, magical quests and mists of forgetfulness is definitely a fantasy novel.
    This Census Taker – China Mieville – short but very sweet.
    The Minotaur takes his own Sweet Time – Steven Sherrill – a welcome return for M to the the pages of literature.
    Children of the Sky – Guy Kay – simply beautiful writing and great book.


  8. In no particular order:
    Prince of Fools
    Warbreaker – Brandon Sanderson
    Shadows of Self – Brandon Sanderson
    Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell – Susana Clarke
    The Time of Contempt – Andrej Sapkowski


  9. So hard to choose! And these are not in any particular order.
    Brandon Sanderson- Words of Radiance
    Mark Lawrence- The Wheel of Osheim
    Josiah Bancroft- Senlin Ascends
    Patrick Rothfuss- A Wise Man’s Fear
    Brian McClellan-Promise of Blood


  10. Witches of Lychford – Paul Cornell
    Wheel of Osheim – Lawrence
    Peace – Gene Wolfe
    Sharp Ends – Abercrombie
    Stilletto – O’Malley

    Wolfe’s Shadow and Claw stays with me. Cornell and O’Malley have fun series.

  13. 1. Broken Empire (this is just sucking up, these books where amazing. I’ve never come across a character like Jorg before and not sure I will again!!)
    2. Heir of Novron by Michael J. Sullivan (I was just going to put the entire Ryria series but put my favorite of them all. Great story telling and characters you love come to the end)
    3. Morning Star by Pierce Brown (Another series finisher but again another great book. Characters and story is so compelling, loved every second of it)
    4. Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits by David Wong (another classic from Mr. Wong aka Jason Pargin. Well written story with plenty of humor)
    5. Ex Heroes by Peter Clines (Changing it up and putting book#1 of the series. This was a unique take on the zombie apocalypses and really enjoyed it)


  14. Blood Song by Anthony Ryan

    Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
    Prince Of Fools by Mark Lawrence
