    The hole in my fantasy seeking brain has been plugged after I finished Raven's Shadow (2013, author Anthony Ryan) this Christmas long weekend. Have the second book Tower Lord and afraid to start reading as I know I'll lose myself in it - and I don't have time!

    Just the right balance of dark hero (a little too virtuous for my liking), unlikely brotherhood, a hint of magic and a whole lot of surviving great odds.

    Not quite there with bleakness though, don't think I can handle anymore Janny Wurts though it has been a decade since I've touched her books.

    Sounds good. Is there sex? I like some raunch in my fiction.

    The story revolves around the hero Vaelin who is of the Sixth Order (assassins) and pretty much a bunch of male virgins. The threads where love motivates action, angst are primarily tied to familial love. Romance in this book is subtly treated and of the purest variety, helps keep the focus on all the killing ;)

    ^ finished the trilogy, it became messy by the third book. A little disjointed, overwrought, page-filling detail that didn't drive the story. But its saving grace was that the author didn't pull any punches with his key character's inner journey and the cost of living his truth.

    DO NOT READ.

    * Okay, to be fair I don't mind having known some of the characters and they will linger awhile in my trash filled brain.
