An interesting read. The entire book takes place in one city during a brutal rebellion at the height of its power, with all sorts of bleak and murky grey. It is a brutal oppression from start to finish, but I did struggle a bit. Something about the s ...more

The Thousand Scars by Michael R. Baker
"This is the first book of my SPFBO4 (self-published fantasy blog off 2018) titles that I got around to reading and I have to say this one was a dark, dark read with a whole lot of grim thrown in. We follow a lot of different groups of people, each..." Read more of this review »

A really fascinating book. I didn't know what to expect going into this as it's not really a genre I like, but I ended up enjoying it quite a lot. Set in an Urban fantastical America with all matter of fantasy elements and packed with real world triv ...more

Brandon Sanderson
“Elend smiled. "Oh, come on. You have to admit that you're unusual, Vin. You're like some strange mixture of a noblewoman, a street urchin, and a cat. Plus, you've mangaged - in our short three years together - to kill not only my god, but my father, my brother, and my fiancée. That's kind of like a homicidal hat trick.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

“Elend started. "Vin!" Then, he smiled. "What took you so long?"
"I got delayed by an Inquistor and a dark god," she said. "Now hustle.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
You act as if I were your enemy.
“You are my enemy. You seek to end the things I love.”
And is an ending always bad? it asked. Must not all things, even worlds, someday end?
“There is no need to hasten that end,” Vin said. “No reason to force it.”
All things are subject to their own nature, Vin, Ruin said, seeming to flow around her. She could feel its touch on her—wet and delicate, like mist. You cannot blame me for what I am. Without me, nothing would end. Nothing could end. And therefore, nothing could grow. I am life. Would you fight life itself?
Vin fell silent.
Do not mourn because the day of this world’s end has arrived, Ruin said. That end was ordained the very day of the world’s conception. There is a beauty in death—the beauty of finality, the beauty of completion.
For nothing is truly complete until the day it is finally destroyed.
