More About the Author

Christopher Bunn graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois with a Master's degree in TV/Film Production. After several years working in the UK on dramas and documentaries, he worked for Big Idea Productions in Illinois, producing children's DVDs and video games. It was there, during a snowy Chicago winter, that he began writing stories. Finally succumbing to the allure of better weather, he moved back to his home state of California where he has been ever since, writing books, film scripts, composing music, and working on a farm.

In addition to his time in media production, he has spent many years working around the globe in various countries. He ran a post office in a United Nations refugee camp in Thailand, done construction in the Amazon, worked in an orphanage in the highlands of Ethiopia, caught malaria in Kenya, done post-hurricane demolition in Hawaii, and worked the nightshift in a shoe factory in Israel.

His stories are influenced by his favorite writers, mainly J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, George MacDonald, and Susan Cooper. Lately, he has also been writing script for independent film: The Fellows Hip (winner of Best Feature at the Indianapolis Gen Con Festival, 2012) and The Rangers (currently in production with OAP Films).

In this final volume, the author seems to be filling space until he can get to the grand finale. The two main characters get into a repetitive series of mishaps. They are caught by an enemy, all seems lost but they manage to escape. After that, they are caught by an enemy, all seems lost but they manage to escape. And so on...

"Don't look back!" but he always looks back. Every time!

The ending is good. However, I think that the best part of the novel is the epilogue. It has an amazing Peter Pan kind of feeling that leaves you wistful and a little sad.

I enjoyed the trilogy and I am more than willing to forgive the author for any weaknesses in the story. I really look forward to reading more of his work.

"The Wicked Day" is the third book in the 'Tormay' trilogy by author Christopher Bunn. This is a Kindle e-book that is a 670 Kb download and is price at $ 2.99.

SPOILERS (general theme only...no specific detail given)

This final book follows Jute (and several others) in his quest to understand and develop his special gift...his ability to summon and control the wind. His difficultly in grasping the use of this wondrous skill has come at an inopportune time as the land of Tormay, as the region has drawn the undivided attention of a very powerful and sinister demon. A dark creature who has bidded his time for centuries and has now decided the conditions are ripe for him to take this peaceful land for his own.

END SPOILERS

The Pros:
1.) author Bunn has possibly some of the best descriptive talent I've read. There are several treks in this novel...on land, through underground passages, dungeons and castles etc. and they all simple ooze with tension, atmosphere and a sense of foreboding. Spine tingling!

2.) lots of action and intrigue leading up to a great finale! A battle of epic proportions.

3.) the book finishes with a short narrative of what happened to several the main protagonist, after the final battle i.e. what they did with the rest of their lives. Being the sentimentalist I am, I've always liked this type of finish for aging heroes and heroines; it was used in both Tolkin's "Lord of the Rings" and Dennis L. McKiernan's "The Iron Tower" trilogies with good effect...and it's used with good effect here. Touching in many ways.

4.) a great map...a hearty thank you from all of us fantasy lovers who appreciate this bonus feature.

The Cons:
1.) dialogue...

When I first started reading "The Tormay Trilogy" I felt a little let down with the first book, but as I started the second book I really started to get into this story. When I started "The Wicked Day" all I could hope is that the story would continue to grow into the greatness,I am here to say that I was not let down "The Wicked Day" is the best book in the series without doubt. The whole time I was reading this book I could only hope it would not end, unfortunately it did have to end, I recommend this book and this series to all, it is a story that will get into your heart and you will want more. And I have been told that there could be more Tales of Tormay. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

I enjoyed the first two books, and the ending of the trilogy was just as good. I got the first book for free on Amazon, and I liked it so much that I purchased the other two.

I liked the characters and the writing style. The description of the final battle is really gripping and sweeps you right along.

I like fantasy novels by David Eddings, Dave Duncan, Raymond Feist, the early Dennis McKiernan books, Stephen Donaldson, David Drake - if you like those authors, then I think you will like this series also.

Christopher Bunn is easily one the best self-published fantasy writers available on Amazon. His work compares favorably with the best of Tolkien, LeGuin, and McKillip. I have no idea why he charges so little for his books. His works are easily worth the amounts that are routinely charged by the big publishing houses. I can't over stress this point - buy his books now before he comes to his senses and starts charging what they are worth.

In reading Wicked Day, I felt like Bunn kept the quality level up with the second book. There are some moments where I felt that aspects of LotR were too present as an influence, but this isn't necessarily a negative. This implies that there are elements that lack originality, but overall he creates a fantastic new universe with great history and strong heroes. It was great to see Jute come into his own, I felt myself rejoicing in all of his triumphs. Bunn more or less tied up every plot throughout, which was generally satisfying to someone who gets a bit persnickety about such things. I was very pleased with the progression of the characters, the battle scenes, and the level of prose. A great read that really brings the series to a solid close. Definitely recommended.

VAGUE ENDING SPOILERS: WATCH YOURSELF

I kept thinking about the sceadu after he was 'dealt with' and I'm pretty glad that they referenced that situation later, even in the way it was done. There was something very strong for me during the end of the last battle. Bunn creates the situation where the moment of triumph becomes the moment of greatest vulnerability, basically you no longer look for assault and let your guard down. This was achieved very fluidly and I really enjoyed it. The ending also was something more than I expected. I felt like this was going to resolve with the classic fantasy stint of good triumphing over evil because of hope or faith or whatever, but it was more than that. I felt like the message I received at the end was more the 'evil wins the day when good men do nothing' and a message of constant vigilance. I feel like these aspects really helped bring the series over the top and give it that special edge that I was hoping to see.
