The author of the Mistborn series is finishing the Wheel of Time series. I stumbled across a reference to Mistborn and read a bit about both series due to Brandon Sanderson being involed in both. Both appear to be overly convoluted fantasy fiction, is this fair? I don't like epic for epic sake, it has to be a character arc and essentially life's journey that you are seeing parts of at a time. It is probably what makes Harry Potter work, you see a year of his life at a time. Each can build on the previous year, but remains a distinct story within a series, even though the overriding story is ever present.Quote
Dan Brown is the single most overrated writer in history. I'm going to pen my second book targeting some coverup by the Catholic, Judaism and Muslim churches, then ride the wave of controversy to record sales.Quote
Don't get me wrong, The Da Vinci Code was a good read and well told, but no better than any other "airport novel". Koontz, King, Ludlum, Patterson, Clancy; all just as good.
