The Trouble With Peace
Anyone reading the latest from Abercrombie? Just started.

I’ve said this before, but I think he’s a better pure writer than Sanderson. Sanderson Lourdes Supreme over Worldbuilding, but Abercrombie I think is better at the finer details of characterization. I also prefer his more brutal, R rated, realistic view taken in his novels. No one is ever safe.

He’s also the only one even near Sanderson in churning out quality work at a good clip in the fantasy world.

re: The Trouble With Peace
I agree with you on Abercrombie being better pure writer overall than Sanderson, mostly due to his characters being far superior. I haven't gotten around to the trouble with peace yet. I had originally planned on waiting till next fall and just reading 2 and 3 after the third came out, but I've been rereading the stand alones the last two weeks (reading red country now) and I doubt I'll be able to wait to read it now.

However, you are way off on this one. There are bunch of fantasy authors churning out quality work at a good clip these days.

Bought it the day it came out. I love his writing style. I need to get around to reading the stand alone books that come before the Age of Madness books.

re: The Trouble With Peace
Same. I’ve read all the trilogy novels.

I’ve read Red Country. But I’ve lapsed on a few of the other standalone entries.

And yea. His writing style is probably my favorite of current fantasy authors.
