Great characters and plot - it gets faster and more fascinating by the page . . . A hell of a debut: highly recommended -- Conn Iggulden on Malice With all manner of battles, betrayals and revelations. I particularly enjoyed the battle scenes and duels . . . If it sounds like your thing, then it probably is -- Mark Lawrence on Malice A strong contender for the "if you like Game of Thrones, why not try this?" award -- Independent on Malice Valour is hands down the best fantasy I have read in an age -- Book Frivolity on Valour Triumphant . . . A masterful thrill ride of a book -- Dominish Fantasy Reviews on Ruin A breathtakingly perfect finale to a series that has grown from strength to wonderful strength. Poignant, pulse-pounding and phenomenally paced . . . satisfying - and heart-breaking - climax that Tolkien himself would be proud to have penned * Fantasy Faction on Wrath * --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

In A Time of Dread we follow a wide array of characters, all of them interesting in their own way:
- Bleda from Sirak Horse Clan who was taken by the Ben-Elim when he was little and raised as their ward;
- Drem and his father Olin, who had many secrets to share with his son;
- Riv, daughter of Dalmae, who was training to become one of the White-Wing of Drassil;
- Sig, a giant and weapon master of Dun Seren.
And of course there is a big focus on the battle between the Ben-Elim and the Kadoshim.
At some point, I imagine, our character’s paths will cross, but for now I was really enjoying to read about where they came from and what they are up to. My absolute favourite arc was about Drem. He was just such an easy character to root for! Kind, brave and quite intelligent, he will be destined for great things.
