Fantasy book reviews

These fantasy book reviews are courtesy of greghamerton.com, where you'll find more recent updates and new developments.

I love fantasy books, especially ones that are intelligent. There is nothing better than to drop into the page of a well-written fantasy novel and find a world of wonder to explore.

THE RUNES OF THE EARTH by Stephen Donaldson
Because I'm so passionate about it, bad books tend to disappoint me more than they should. They get thrown across the room when they break the spell. This could be due to bad writing, implausible plotting, or just downright cheesiness. I'd rather re-read one really good book than power through twenty mediocre ones.

But since I'm a writer myself, I have no desire to cut into the work of others with my rough-edged sword. There are enough cynics in the world, and it's all too easy to find fault, much harder to find a reason to praise that isn't just being patronising. So you'll mostly find reviews of the books I like here.  The bad books ... well, they're outside the window.

These are my personal experiences from a writer's perspective.
