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.
"There are no myths or monsters, just things people haven't hallucinated recently."
Well, that was fun. It's actually a bit disturbing that I get these books so well. Does that mean I'm sane, or quite the opposite? Perhaps my own delusions help me understand how this world works. Perhaps the mirror knows, but will it tell me truth?
As a concept, I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it, and it's so perfectly executed. I'm being a bit vague, I know. But really these books are better experienced without too much knowledge going in. There is just so much to discover.
Let's just say I'm a fan.
