Bryan Waters Love your books Sir, but I had to unfollow you. Whoever updates your Goodreads profile, is a little over eager. Whenever I log on, I am spammed by dozens of posts. Its just too much.

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.
