With the first book of the series, I didn't do this. While I loved the writing, setting, and story elements, I turned to the last page feeling "wronged" somehow because the characters did not meet my expectations. And this was a mistake on my part. If you went looking for heroes in Beyond Redemption...well...you were hunting snipes with a burlap sack in high grass with hungry lions.
So, with The Mirror's Truth, I set aside all of the things I wanted, and I read the book.
And I loved it.
If you like your worlds epic, your "heroes" flawed, and your gods bat-shit crazy, then these books are for you.
I would also like to point out that this was a self-published work as well, and the work that Michael did to bring this amazing book to market is the stuff that...well...books are written about. And it also won the r/Fantasy Stabby award for BEST SELF-PUBLISHED / INDEPENDENT NOVEL OF 2016!!!!
This is an amazing book and I can't wait to read more of the book Michael puts out, and trust me, from what I know he likes to put out ;)
The Mirror's Truth picks up right where BR left off and just proves how great a writer Fletcher is. He does a stupendous job writing from so many different viewpoints and his characterization is so deep. Every character is fleshed out across the novel and, if you read BR, all of your favorites are back and better than ever. Fletch also proves that he is very original with his world building, magic system, and monster creation (though I guess you can't have a fantasy novel without a dragon). My favorite part about TMT is the ability to get inside the mind of each character. It allows you to get a sense of each character's drive and purpose and just adds so much to the storyline.
Fletcher is at the top of my reading list and he needs to be at the top of yours, especially if grimdark fantasy is your cup of tea. If you like Mark Lawrence, you'll love Michael Fletcher. But do yourself a favor and pick up Beyond Redemption first. You'll be happy you did.
This book is wildly entertaining, profane, fun, gross, hilarious, violent, and just all around crazy... but at the same time I ofen found myself deeply moved by the feelings of pain, loss, guilt, shame, desperation, hope, and love felt by these characters. All the amorality and killing makes the eventual acts of sacrifice and redemption feel that much more heroic and earned. Without getting too corny, I did take valuable lessons away from this book: reality is often yours to define, and your own demons and delusions can always be defeated. Not to worry though, Grimdark fans, it's not all unicorns and rainbows; not by a log shot. Bedeckt is still a brooding mess, Wichtig still a deluded narcissist, and Stehlen will still cut your throat as soon as look at you.
If Fletcher continues to develop and get better at his current pace, the future volumes in this series are going to be among the best the genre has to offer.
