The Fall of Arthur by JRR Tolkien

“If you’re a fan of Tolkien, you’ll love The Fall of Arthur by J.R.R. Tolkien. If you’re a fan of literature, you’ll love this book. If you’re a fan of Arthurian tradition, you’ll love this book. The main story in the alliterative poem is worth the price of admission, because you can enjoy the beautiful style of writing used to tell a very interesting story. This book is worth your time and money even if you don’t read the essays that come with it.”

Tolkien wrote a work that was never before seen by the world, and it tells the story of King Arthur’s last days in England. The Fall of Arthur, J.R.R. Tolkien’s only book about the legends of Arthur King of Britain, may be seen as his best and most skillful use of the Old English alliterative metre. In it, he brought to his new interpretations of the old stories a sense of the grave and fateful nature of all that is told: of Arthur’s journeys to distant heathen lands, of Guinevere’s escape from Camelot, and of the great sea-battles. The Fall of Arthur was one of many long narrative poems that he didn’t finish during that time. A very good friend read it at the end of 1934 and said, “You must finish it!” This means that he started it in the early ’30s. However, at some point in the future, he gave up on it. There is some evidence that it may have been in 1937, the year that The Hobbit came out and the Lord of the Rings was born. A letter from 1955 said, “I hope I can finish this long poem about the fall of Arthur.” But that never happened, and he never wrote it.

In addition to the text of the poem, there are a lot of manuscript pages. There are a lot of drafts and experiments in verse, as well as narrative summaries and a lot of important but ambiguous notes. The Silmarillion and the bitter ending of Lancelot and Guinevere’s love, which was never written down, can be seen in these last two things.

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff (The Nevernight Chronicle: Book 2)

Killer: In a land where three suns almost never set, an assassin is still on a quest for revenge against the people who killed her family. When Mia Corvere was born, she was chosen to be one of the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder. But many in the Red Church hierarchy think she hasn’t earned it. When she does her job in a backwater of the Republic, she doesn’t get any closer to killing the men who killed her family; in fact, she’s been told that Consul Scaeva is off-limits. After a deadly fight with an old enemy, Mia’s suspicions about the Red Church grow. During the end of the grand games in Godsgrave, Scaeva will make a rare public appearance. At that time Mia will be sold to a gladiatorial collegium so that she can finally kill him. On the sands of the arena, Mia meets new friends, enemies, and more questions about why she likes the dark. Mia will have to choose between love and revenge as conspiracies take place inside the walls of the collegium. She will also find out a secret that could change the world as she knows it.

“Godsgrave exceeded all of my expectations. I thought I knew where this was going, but I didn’t. This year, the last book in the trilogy, Darkdawn, will be out for people to read. I can’t wait to read it. This ended with such a huge cliffhanger. If Jay Kristoff keeps writing with the same level of imagination and originality that he did here, this could be one of the best fantasy trilogy’s ever written about.”

There is a lot of history to this series that is still being learned about slowly. I can’t wait to find out what happens next in this fun world.”

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence (Book of the Ancestor #1)

The ending of this story was awe-inspiring. It is one of my favorite stories to read about Nona. Lawrence has made one of the most interesting fantasy worlds that my mind has let me visit.

Beren and Luthien by JRR Tolkien

The epic story of Beren and Lthien has been painstakingly restored from Tolkien’s manuscripts and is now being told as a single story for the first time. It will bring together fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, Dwarves and Orcs, and the rich landscape and creatures unique to Tolkien’s Middle-earth. The story of Beren and Lthien was, or became, an important part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, the myths and legends of the First Age of the World. He came back from France and the Battle of the Somme at the end of 1916. The next year, he wrote the story. The fate of Beren and Lthien’s love is very important to the story, and it has never changed. Beren was a mortal man, but Lthien was an immortal Elf. Her father, a great Elvish lord, was very against Beren. Before he could marry Lthien, he made him do something that was impossible. When Beren and Lthien work together, they try to steal a Silmaril from the most evil of all, Melkor, who is also called Morgoth, the Black Enemy. In this book, Christopher Tolkien tries to separate the story of Beren and Lthien from the larger work in which it is found. But that story itself changed as it made new connections with other parts of the larger work. To show how this legend of Middle-earth changed over time, he has told the story in his father’s words. First, he gives the story in its original form, and then he gives passages in prose and verse from later texts that show how the story changed. When they are shown together for the first time, they show parts of the story that were later lost. They show the story in both its events and its narrative immediacy.

“This book is good for people who have read a lot of Tolkien’s books. It’s almost certain that if you like Tolkien’s poetry editions, like Beowulf a Translation and a Commentary or the books set in Middle-earth, this is the book for you. However, if you just want to read a prose story, you won’t be happy with what you find here.”

The Witchwood Crown by Tad Williams (Last King of Osten Ard #1)

Several decades ago, the Storm King was killed and his army was scattered. Osten Ard has been at peace ever since. Simon Snowlock, a kitchen boy who became king, and Miriamele, the only child of King Elias, have been in charge of the land. But now that they’re getting older, they can’t rule as long as they used to be. Simon’s dreams have gone away, old friends have died, and betrayal and assassination are on the horizon. Because his son and heir Josua is dead and his grandson is a slut. In a world that is getting darker, a journey of redemption and discovery awaits. During a long, cold winter in Nakkiga, the Norn Queen, a friend of Ineluki, wakes from a long sleep. She tells her followers that she won’t sleep again and that they can trust her. Humanity must be killed. It will be her sorcerers who bring a demon back from the dead, and her warriors will search the world for living dragon’s blood.

Finally, the Witchwood Crown, the most important thing in the world, will be hers. “People from different cultures and races fight in this book. The world is stark and gray, and I don’t know who to root for. It’s a very good fantasy story, so go read it!” In Fantasy Book Review, Sean Barrs says that he thinks that the books are good.

The Seven by Peter Newman (The Vagrant Trilogy #3)

‘An exciting new writer who is sharp, compelling, and unique.’ “Mark Lawrence”: Years have passed since the Vagrant and Vesper went to the Shining City with Gamma’s sword in their hands.

It has changed since then. She went to the breach and closed the gap between the worlds, protecting the last of humanity but also trapping the infernal horde. Vesper did this because her father had done the same thing.
In this new age, Vesper leads the charge for peace and unity, with seemingly nothing in the way of a bright new future for the world and its people.
There aren’t any eyes until then
The Seven awoke.

Gilded Cage by Vic James (The Dark Gifts Trilogy #1)

Abi Hadley is going to work for the most ruthless noble family in England. If she finds out the truth, it could either help free her from prison or break her heart.

“Finally, I was emotionally exhausted and wanted to read another book right away so I could learn more about this amazing world Vic James has made up! All I can say is that I’m very impressed. I think everyone should try this, no matter what kind of movie they like. It doesn’t matter that it’s called “Dystopian,” because the story is so well-written and interesting that any reader can enjoy and enjoy it.”

The Fifth Empire of Man by Rob J Hayes (The Best Laid Plans #2)

“The Fifth Empire of Man is great. Intricate with beautiful dialogue. Edited by an expert (I noticed one tiny mistake in these 400-pages). Hayes is sure to get a call from one of the big five fantasy publishers at some point soon. The characters in Hayes’ books are just as memorable as the ones in Abercrombie’s books. Be one of the cool kids who reads this series before it gets popular, because I’m sure it will be popular soon after you do. A pirate movie? That’s what I thought it was going to be.”

In this picture, the Pirate Isles are all under the flag of Drake Morrass. The war has only just begun. There’s still a long way to go before he can call himself King, and there are traitors everywhere. The Five Kingdoms and Sarth have built a fleet of ships that no one has ever seen before. They plan to destroy the Pirate Isles with fire and steel. It’s been a long time since Keelin Stillwater has thought about revenge, but now he can get it. He sets sail for the Forgotten Empire. But there’s more than dense jungles and ruined cities that await him there, too. The cursed land is now home to vengeful gods and evil spirits, and they don’t like to be disturbed. At the same time, Elaina Black is trying to get powerful allies and the forces those allies can give up to help her. If Drake dies, she’s going to take the throne. Either way, she’s going to take it.

Blackwing by Ed McDonald (The Raven’s Mark #1)

In this story, there are a lot of grisly and macabre deaths, but not too much action. Some parts of the book are very intense, but this book is very hard to predict. When I thought I knew where the story was going, I was surprised by a twist, betrayal, or political fight. The publisher stated that this as being “gritty epic fantasy for fans of Mark Lawrence and Scott Lynch” and I cannot disagree.
