About this author

Raised on a steady diet of fantasy novels, comic books, and Dungeons & Dragons, Peter V. Brett (“Peat” to his friends) has been writing fantasy stories for as long as he can remember. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Art History from the University at Buffalo in 1995, and then spent over a decade in pharmaceutical publishing before returning to his bliss. He lives in Brooklyn.

Esio Trot by Roald Dahl
" Fuck this book. Don't read it to your kids. That's the short version.

Felix The series is awesome. There is not to many Epic/Dark adult fantasies out there. The Painted/Warded man is one of my all time favorites.It feels like 1 part LIl'Abner 1 part crucible shake not stir-then add demons for taste.
