  1. Surprised grrm hasn't jumped higher since the tv series came out.
  2. Lost my £20 bet that the world would end, got really good odds too. Oh well, back to work it is.
  3. Also loved ending of first law. To realise that the heroes are worse than what they were fighting. Brilliant.
  4. Would have loved Jordan to finish it (even if it took another 30 books). Feel that Sanderson has taken his time to get in touch with some of the characters and some of the plots seem a bit rushed (having spent years building them up then sort of meh was that it?). Having said that MOL is my most anticipated book of all time. Jordan wrote the ending himself I believe so we will see his vision. At the end of the day it isn't Sanderson's books or characters so you probably can't expect him to spend the time and love on them that Jordan did, but he has probably done as well as anyone could. P.S I wasn't really a Sanderson fan anyway and couldn't be arsed to finish the 3rd of the mistborn trilogy.
  5. Going out on a limb here, but maybe the visions are a plot device to make Aviendha more important for the rest of the story? Before this she could have fell down a well and although Rand being heart broken it would have meant nothing to the rest of the story. Now she has to save her people from a fate they would find worse than death. Hurrah!
  6. Gemmill named decado as the greatest swordsman of drenai history. Can't remember the name of the book but is set in the future when druss, skilgannon and decado are brought back to life. Druss would have easily have taken him though (axe).

    Fave Character

    Forgot the Bloody Nine (even though he was a slight copy of Dace) class character. Hope Abercrombie brings him back in a new series. In fact I think he'll have to as the fans of the First Law series are going mad that he hasn't appeared in the last couple of books. One of the best fantasy writers at the mo and one of the best characters, for me Abercrombie kicks Sandersons arse.

    Shannara

    With you on that one, it has been sitting on the book shelf for a bout a year, have tried reading it twice but can't seem to get into it.
  9. I thought it was accepted that the Wheel of Time is another age of the Arthurian legend? Sword in the Stone. Callandor - Excaliber Green Man Grail - Bowl Of winds King is the land. Al Thor - Arthur Lan - Lancelot Moiraine/Tom Merilyn/Amyrlin - Merlin (advisor) Morridin/Damondred - Mordred Galad - Galahad Gawyn - Gawaine Nynaeve - Guinavere 3 women taking him on a boat after he's died to Tar Valon - Avalon. Morgase - Morgause Caemlyn - Camelot Tigraine - Ygraine (Arthur/Rands mothers) The fisher king. Probably loads more.
  10. Forgot about Konrad out of Warhammer. The book got me into fantasy in the first place.
  11. Why do people always mention Lan but not Rand? I know he lost his hand, but he also go LTT's memories (300years experience). We haven't seen him fight recently but I think people may be surprised. If it is a retelling of the story of King Arthur (the wheel turning etc..) then remember Arthur (Rand) beat Lancelot (Lan).

  13. Conan Most of Gemmells/Abercrombie/Ericksons characters. Aretmis Enreri/Jarlaxle Raistlin Magere Caine thosands of others but can't think at the mo.
