  1. Her blog has somewhat dried up of details behind her progress of late. I’m hoping that progress is still being made. I prefer Sword of Shadows to Rothfuss and Lynch or pretty much any of my favorite series/authors other than Martin or Abercrombie.
  2. If you could choose one of the following series to end unpredictably, one series to end predictably, one series to end with a disappointing ending, and one series to have its final book go unpublished, how would you choose? 1) Sword of Shadows by J.V. Jones; 2) The Gentleman Bastards by Scott Lynch; 3) A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin; and 4) The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
  3. I guess you can add Ian Tregillis to that list?
  4. His website was last updated in August 2019. At the time, his website said he was a few days off from completing his first completed re-draft of his new book. That was some time ago and his Twitter remains inactive. Does anyone know of any news?
  5. I want to go back to this series and get first edition hardcovers. There seems to be a lot of different editions/publishers for the first book. What publisher is the true first edition?
  6. How close to the publication date will the signed Waterstones edition be able to be purchased? I seem to remember the other two available for purchase well in advance of publication but can't seem to find this on Waterstones website now.
  7. I guess I was mistaken. I really thought he posted a picture on Twitter of the completed manuscript. Must have been just the first draft.
  8. I seemingly remember you calling the increase in quality between the Book of Words series and Sword of Shadows possibly the greatest increase in writing quality between series, or something like that.
  9. I don’t get it though. I thought he was done.
  10. While this thread is more active...any update on the book at all?
  11. I believe so. She fairly regularly provides updates about the book on her Patreon.
  12. 16 is late for certain aspects of puberty to kick in but it IS magical puberty.
  13. I am in the midst of re-reading Sword of Shadows by JV Jones. Is there a guide or does someone know off-hand the ages of the following characters: 1) Effie (8?) 2) Raif (18?), 3) Drey(20?) 4) Raina, 5) Ash (13?) 6) Angus, 7) Vaylo, 8) Mace, and 9) Bram? Not sure if this is made clear, but is a year in the books roughly equivalent to a year on Earth? Not sure if the weather patterns mean the planet is further away from its star. Lastly, it’s a little hard to tell during my re-read but does anyone know the span of time the books take place over so far?
  14. I feel like he has been giving this exact speech for a good 4 - 5 years now. We got more actual progress reports from GRRM. I also vastly prefer Lynch’s approach of just not saying anything. Rothfuss just says the same stuff over and over but refuses to state where he actually is progress wise. That being said, JV Jones has the preferred method of communication for these types of situations, which is actually substantially communicating her progress.
  15. I have read John Gwynne’s first book many years ago when it first came out. I remember it being mediocre at best. I don’t remember much but I do remember there being a rip off of aSoIaF where the good guys are slaughtered and someone survives swearing to seek revenge. I also remember the teenage main character being married to the most beautiful woman ever who was forced to marry him but who loves him. This may be a totally inaccurate description, but the bottom line is the book in my opinion wasn’t very good. Flash forward to the present and people are singing his praises as being one of the best authors of the modern age. That his books are grim dark and wholly original. Did I miss something or are people just disillusioned?
