Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years.

What can I say, its like Tolkien yet it not like Tolkien. And like Tolkien It did that one thing I look for in a book it sucked me down the rabbit hole in to a world I can only usually visit in my dreams.

Any book that can do that when my eyes are open is a book of pure magic !!!

I looked through the main characters eyes, heard with their ears, spoke with their voice. I felt everything they felt, I was them and they me..........if that's not spell weaving then what is ?

Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

What can we say, dungeons and dragons like story - yes, sword and sorcery like story - yes.

And yet so refreshingly new, it was like discovering Tolkiens Hobbit for the very first time - pure magic.

More, more, more, give me more.

The year is 2650. Seventy-five years ago, an alien fleet attacked Earth. Without warning. Without mercy. We were not prepared. Hundreds of millions perished. Dozens of cities burned. We nearly lost everything. Then the aliens abruptly left. We rebuilt. We armed ourselves. We swore: never again. But the aliens never came back. Until now. With overwhelming force the aliens have returned, striking deep into our territory, sending Earth into a panic.

Some strong similarities to the Battlestar Galactica story yet different in everyway that matters, gripped hold of me and would not let me go start to finish.

Set 10 years after the events in Prince of the Blood, this book is a remarkable adventure of mystery and magic. In Amos Trask's ship, Prince Nicholas and Squire Harry set sail for a friendly visit to Uncle Martin in Crydee. But while the two are guests in Crydee, disaster strikes. Nicholas, third son of Prince Arutha, is a gifted youngster, but sheltered by life at his father's court in Krondor. To learn more of the world outside the palace walls, Nicholas and his squire, Harry, set sail for pastoral Crydee, where Arutha grew up.
