    Didn't really like TRHC -- Will I like her other books?

    Hi all, I'm wondering if I should give Wurts' series starting with The Curse of the Mistwraith a go... I just finished To Ride Hell's Chasm, and I have to say I wasn't particularly impressed. BUT I really enjoyed the beginning with the set-up of court intrigue and characters clashing with each...

    Wars of light and shadow on goodreads' beyond reality

    For the loyal fans of this most excellent of series, I would note that the Beyond Reality group at Goodreads is voting on whether or not to discuss The Wars of Light and Shadow, or Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber. A tough choice, to be sure, but... If inclined to vote, and to actually follow up...

    INITIATE'S TRIAL: Updates on Release

    I thought it was about time to start this thread, as Ms. Wurts has been so kind on her own site (Trystane's Website: host for the Janny Wurts Offical Webpage and the Don Maitz Official Webpage) to keep us readers updated on her progress. A word of warning, Janny Wurst DOES NOT, EVER, give...

    Curse of the Mistwraith

    Is it as good as everyone makes out on reviews? To me female authors seem to not really include action and pace in novels or am I mistaken? Is this the case for this book and the rest of her books, does she have pace and action and intrigue etc? I bought a bunch of her books because they were...

    Question on Janny Wurts' Curse of the Mistwraith (War of Light and Shadow)

    I ordered the book a few days ago because I've been reading A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin and needed a way to fill the wait in between now and the next book. So I looked around and got a lot of recommendations for a number of different authors and series to look into and decided on...

    Favourite Janny Wurts Passage

    Many of us have lauded Ms. Wurts' writing ability, and how her vocabulary occasionally requires the reader to consult Mr. Roget's big book of words. For me, I have always felt when reading that she reaches into my brain, and pulls me into the story, so it feels like I am a specter floating...

    Help me out here.

    I came into my dorkdom .. late in life. I never really read much growing up. None of the stories I read appealed to me except one or two. I started RPGaming around Age 23 and found out how much of a geek I really am. I since have loved reading fantasy. Since 23 (now 27) I have read several...

    CURSE OF THE MISTWRAITH: Where the Atheran Journey Begins...

    Not being able to remember the brilliant post that started this thread prior to the Great Crash of '08, I do remember the reason. There are lots of threads in this relatively new sub-forum that are simply riddled with spoilers, and given Ms. Wurts' penchant for making her readers drop their...
