The Great God's War is a much more accessible work than the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Much more like Mordant's Need in that regard.

For sure, but it still retains SRD's trademark exploration o ...

This came up on the Reddit forum.

Everyone knows that Kevin enacted the ROD with Foul because he was mired in despair because LF "had the feller fist" and was winning the war. Kevin was d ...

Never in a million years would iron heels have been part of Caerroil Wildwood's design.

Good point.

I think it's clear enough from reading the First Chronicles as a whole that it would have been Kevin's growing doubt that led him to cast about for desperate "solutions". The RoD was one s ...

So, *ahem* The Sarantine Mosaic.

Great duology. Changed the way I look at epic fantasy. Not many books change your outlook of an entire genre.

The only negative I have to say about those books i ...

I was 13 when I read LFB. That was a few years before I read LotR, maybe that's why I don't put Tolkien on the pedestal many fantasy fans do. The Chronicles are far superior in my opinion.

My memory says it took place in Kiril Threndor, according to what Foul tells Covenant while he's transporting TC from Kiril Threndor to Kevin's Watch.

Of course it took place in Kiril Threndor. T ...

I like them. They're easier reads than Erikson, but the continuity is good enough that the world remains as believable, and they fill in a lot of the blanks before, betwe ...

GOT is pretty established as a classic mostly due to its huge popularity
