Second the recommendation for Senlon Ascends. Cracking read.

 

I'm currently reading this thanks to recommendations in this thread. It's excellent!

Has anyone read any NK Jemisin? I've just finished the Fifth Season and it was absolutely fantastic. Really unique writing style for a fantasy, consistent and logical worldbuilding, interesting characters and a really well realised world. About to start the sequel and would thoroughly recommend for anyone looking for a new read.

I've got it, but I;m finding it hard to get into . It's not really grabbing me.  I need to make a concerted effort.

I just finished the third book. It stays great all the way through, although the third book has to do a fair bit of heavy lifting to land the ending.

R Scott Bakker's Prince Of Nothing series. Worth a read? Just polished off Anna Smith Spark's The Tower Of Living & Dying (a worthy sequel to The Court Of Broken Knives, which I also enjoyed) and she seems to cite RSB's books as influences in interviews. Might take the plunge on the first book

First hundred pages of TDTCB seemed very dense with references to about 8 or 9 different political factions and a lot to take in, but now it's settled down into a very compelling multi POV grimdark fantasy number. Glad I took the plunge
