Product description

Review

'Influenced by Gemmell's Rigante and GRR Martin's Game of Thrones - two good strands of DNA. Great characters and plot - it gets faster and more fascinating by the page. All I want now is for the author to put everything else aside, including his health - and write two or three more as fast as humanly possible. Hell of a debut: Highly recommended' Conn Iggulden 'With its warring clans, sleeping giants, Banished Lands and omens and portents ... is a strong contender for the "if you like Game of Thrones, why not try this?" award' Independent blog 'Malice is easily one of the best fantasy novels I read this year, and one which will appeal to most fans of the genre' Iwillreadbooks.com 'It's exciting when you find a strong new voice ringing out through the halls of fantasy, and John Gwynne hits all the right spots in his epic tale of good vs evil, the first in the Faithful & The Fallen series ... there's a lot of pleasure to be had in this debut novel; Gwynne is definitely one to watch' SFX 'With three-dimensional characters, a gripping plot, and a world that became real to me, John Gwynne's Malice is a great debut. In short, this is the kind of fantasy I love to read and I truly can't wait for the next volume in The Faithful and the Fallen!' Fantasy Book Critic
