Absolutely brilliant

Baker’s open comments are something that everyone should read or hear. As a PhD scientist and engineering and lover of all sci-fi and fantasy I have never heard such a more powerful opening as this book. The case for grim dark and the rules for story tell are powerfully explained I was left with my jaw on the floor.

I will be recommending this series for the the next ten years if not more. This is a classical exposition on the moral dilemma we call humanity in a fun dark, intellectual, brilliant, set of stories that we as lover of fantasy should read. This will open your mind and blur the boundary of what we conceive as evil and good. You will relate and hate that you relate to the characters given because it is who we are in nature.

I want to thank all the authors who made this brilliant piece of work. This is true grimdark at its finest. Real people real feelings real actions real story telling. They don’t not shy away from the true good and evil in the human soul.

Please enjoy this exciting journey into the dark you will not regret it!
