quadfather wrote:It's a bloody good series. Not without its problems, but it does a fairly good job of kicking a whole host of hoary old fantasy tropes in the nuts. (Whilst, without irony, including plenty of the new cynical dark low fantasy ones, mind, most notably some pretty bad sex).
What's worth noting is that the spin-off books so far have actually been of an even higher standard and there's a new one out soon! \o/
Only for those that have read everything: Anyone else wish Bayaz would fuck off now? His secret war overarching plot does nothing for me, and only seems to be an excuse for cameos and mini deus ex wizards. I want mentally ill barbarians and twisted torturers not baldy mcgrudgeface.
