What's the policy on spoilers? Don't want to let anything slip in a conversation about the books :)

Welcome to the Banished Lands Addiction Club. You are a welcome member to swell our ranks to fight off the Kadoshim!

I love re-reading these books. I feel I notice more tiny details and it makes the experience so much better. Have you ever listened to then on audible?

It would be amazing to see some fan art from the Banished Lands. If anyone has ever drawn anything whatsoever (doesn't have to be professional, anything from the Banished Lands will be amazing) then please upload it! I'm sure everyone would love to see it.

Hello Will, I am proud and happy to say, I've read them all. I'll probably re-read towards the end of the year as that is the time when I revisit series.

I've read them all, Will. The trouble for me is that I'm utterly hopeless at remembering all the ins and outs. I tried a couple of your quizzes a while back and was disappointingly average. I think your Dad said that my favourite character from the new series 'Drem' was based on you, is that right?

That would be a good time to re-read, especially with A Time of Courage due to be published in April.

An avid follower of the Banished Lands then. It is definitely very hard to remember all the facts, only a few people have got 100% in those quizzes.
Yes, apparently he is inspired by me. It's cool to think that I am a hero in a book somewhere :)

Ahh such a fantastic book! (view spoiler)
That is one of the most heart wrenching endings possible, still have not forgiven him.

Exciting news everyone! Orbit have secured a trilogy from John Gwynne for a Norse-inspired tale! More details in the Bloodsworn folder in this group :) Looking forward to a new world in 2021!

interesting, as that means the next and final in this series is out next year and not long to wait! I've read both the new books, and only the 4th, Wrath, to read of the first series - would be nice if the trilogy norm were broken again though, and this trilogy were a quad as well! Hey, Will, are you sure it's gonna be a trilogy, you never know, he could have plans for a five or six book series!!

Yes! The finale of A Time of Courage first. And I can assure you, it is one big and satisfying ending!

Well he is now doing the edit for the third book, which is the conclusion of the series, so I can safely say it is a trilogy hahah.

Ruth Harwood (ruth120067) | 14 comments fab! I've read the first two, I'm now reading Wrath (wow, the tear-jerker ending of Ruin almost undid me - just that final sentence!) so hey, I'm ready and looking forward to it!

Wow you've nearly finished! That ending was completely heartbreaking! Hope you love Wrath :)

ADPreadsYA | 2 comments Adrienne here, in the swelting heat of California's central valley. Thanks for allowing me to the chance to cheer/vent with like-minds. Just finished Malice last night and started freaking out because, even though I have Malice, Valor and Ruin, I don't have Wrath🤤. Not to worry, it arrives next week.
Anyway, just want to say that this story is everything I needed to push me past my GoT withdrawls and even better, it's complete!
Still trying to process those last10 or so chapters. On to Valor!

Great to have you in the war band with us Adrienne, looking forward to discussing the books with you :).

Hopefully you won't have to wait to read Wrath after Ruin!

message 48: by Michael (new)

Michael | 66 comments Hi, guys and gals. I just wanted to ask a question because I'd really like to buy the Faithful and the Fallen quartet in hardback. Amazon doesn't appear to be selling them and Malice is £349 which is crazy and my local Waterstones doesn't have them in stock. Where can I get the hardbacks at trade price for new books? Will I have to ask Waterstones to order them in for me?

Well, that is probably an average price for Malice now, unfortunately. Because it is the first in the series it is more expensive.

They do occasionally turn up cheaper though on Ebay. Just got to stalk it for a while :)
