the greatest challenges an author willver face is to create a setting as powerful as his characters Fletcher makes it look asy not only does he deliver but he also xcels on کتاب اعتیاد every front Thenchanting and delightful prose the thrilling yet smooth pace and the Last Forest, the exotic and compelling storytelling come together to wave a tale of shocking but wanted violence that would putvery other grim tale to shameFletcher s fantasy debut had but one problem the dull and tiresome POV of an unwanted character This problem is not present in the seuel and there are virtually no others The characters are fascinating and well developed the already Afternoon Tea established world is furtherxpanded and Carnal Sin explored and the magic system is beautifully structured andnthralling All in all The Mirror s Truth is one of the greatest fantasy books I ve How to Get Into Oxbridge: A Comprehensive Guide to Succeeding in Your Application Process ever read and I urge you to drop anythinglse you are currently reading and pick this one up insteadYou can find of my reviews over at Originally reviewed at BookwraithsIt is damn difficult to top perfection And in my opinion Beyond Redemptionwas just about as near perfect a grimdark as anyone can write one of the most demented darkest and diabolical grims How to Get Into Oxbridge ever penned But somehow Michael Fletcher did just that with The Mirror s Truth The mad man in the glasses and black cowl delivering a stunning seuel one that sets a new standard for what a grimdark has to deliver in order to be considered greatIt all starts where Beyond Redemptionnded with Bedeckt and his two friends Wichtig and Stehlen dead in the Afterlife Of course our tragic trio has grown bored of the hereafter Hell there is only so many things one can do while there So these guys Strategic Procurement: Organizing Suppliers and Supply Chains for Competitive Advantage escape back into the land of the livingWhile the Sanest Man Alive the Greatest Swordsman in the World and the Keptic Killer have been living it up in death back in the real world things have changed Their former captive Morgen has taken up the reins of godhood busily remaking the Geborene people into a near perfect race Every thought of the young god focused on perfecting the dirty brutish habits of his worshipers refining them and make them into immaculate clean pinnacles of his vision of mankind Only problem is that Morgen is a damn lunatic likeveryone Der Weg zum wahren Reiki-Meister else in the worldWell Bedeckt is going to put a stop to Morgen s madness The crazed god is his fault in his mind at least so he is going to fix the mess he created Doesn t matter that those two friends he tried to abandoned back in the Afterlife have found a way into the real world and are bent on hunting him down and killing him He won t be stopped by the otherven psychotic assassins Morgen has sent after him Nor will his own slow descent into the madness and sanity he has always risen above deter him Bedeckt will madness and sanity he has always risen above deter him Bedeckt will fail because he is the Sanest Man Alive which might mean he is also the most damn crazed shite in a world full of lunatics and sociopathsFrom start to finish this is one of the smoothest most disturbing and most compelling grimdarks I have ver read From the near perfect pacing of the narrative to the ngrossing storytelling Michael Fletcher crafts a masterpiece and makes it look Anatomisk bildordbok easy Whether it is internal contemplation savage torture or scheming machinations Michael Fletcher nails it sells it and makes a reader buy it whole heartedly Demented and crazed characters actually develop before youryes becoming understandable Neurosurgical Classics II even in their deep dark madness The fresh inventive and intricately detailed world building brings to life a reality where madness and delusion creates the world around the characters helping to mold them into different beings The violence is visceral always present and horribly described when it finally finds it victims And thending it is just pure Michael Fletcher madness people Great stuff Can t put it any simply than thatThe only negative I will mention So I can appear to be fair and hide my absolute fanboy feelings for this bookseries is that the plot in The Mirror s Truth is narrow less Ostopathie crnienne : Manuel pratique epic in feel than Beyond Redemption Everything in this tale revolving around our protagonist Bedecktven though the other characters have their own stories going on simultaneously While this didn t bother me in the least I could see many readers feeling bothered by the focused plot lineIf you love grimdark and have not tried Michael Fletcher s series I have to go ahead and ask you to please turn over your grimdark fan club membership card because you do not deserve to keep it I mean this series is a hidden gem of creativity dementia and pure violence which grabs you by the throat and will not let go It is 100% proof distilled madness delivered up by the Master of Grimdark Madness Michael Fletcher And you my patient reader need to go buy Beyond Redemption and read it already because the bandwagon is leaving the station and Keeper's Compendium: Blasphemous Knowledge Forbidden Secrets everyone on board gets first choice at the barI received an advanced reading copy of this book from the author inxchange for a fair and honest review I d like to thank him for allowing me to receive this review copy and inform In Over Her Head Chloe Babineaux Private Investigator everyone that the review you have read is my opinion alone 55 Self loathing is the natural state for humanity We know there is something wrong with us We are at war with ourselves and it s a war we are doomed to lose Buddy read with my fellow delusionalist JodyThis book needs to be accompanied by some crazypic death metal head banging I used to be a metal head but in my old age I find it pretty hectic however if you read this novel whilst listening to death metal the real growly shit I guarantee your Säure-Basen-Einkaufsführer experience will benhanced Mine was anyway Actual footage of me rocking out lol jokes If I did this I swear I d pull the muscles in my neck have to wear a neck brace I m too old for this shiteAnyway sorry about the rambling my mind is in out of space lately so Color Atlas of Human Anatomy, Vol. 3 Nervous System and Sensory Organs expect a ton of word vomit fangirling come to think of it I think I m Fletcher s first suealing mess of a fan I crumble like a teenage girl at a one direction concert over his shiteSeriously folks what a goddam rutting mess Once again I am left wondering why I m so goddamn morbid How can I love something so gritty warped twisted Actually I lied I don t love this novel I actually adore it If I could cuddle the novel for being so incredibly fucked up I would but I won t because that would be awkward I love the grit I love the darkness most of all I loved all the violence I am now labeling Fletcher the king of grimdark He definitely knows how to bring the grim to the dark Like my body wasn t prepared for the feels and grimness that this book delivered IT CRUSHED MY SOUL I RUTTING CRIED Seriously I never thought I d cry over characters I hated with a passion orven feel any remorse for them But I did Michael is an The Facial Nerve extremely talented author he made us hate the characters in book one in book two we feltmpathy for them FEELING EMPATHY FOR VILLAINS IS SACRILEGIOUS ITS NOT RIGHT Thanks for sucker punching me in the jaw Sometimes you don t talk like the kind of man who slams another man s head against the floor until his skull breaks Basically this book is about all the good shit normal authors don t Surgery for Cochlear and Other Auditory Implants explore madness death chaos violence Bedeckt has a list of crimes he won t commit however he has already broken those rules and caused damage then hever thought he would The Geborene God seeks to remake the world He wants it perfect and clean However he is having trouble in a world full of the insane Bedeckt wants to put an Uncommon Leadership: How to Build Competitive Advantage by Thinking Differently end to the madness he has created But he is being followed by his two best friends who he abandoned Wichtig the greatest swordsman in the world Stelhan a kleptomaniac this chick is crazy like beyond redemption she would cut your throat in your sleep for fun Who will reach the God first Or will Bedeckt die before he gets a chance to redeem himself What happens when the only sane person in the whole world is the craziest of them all The dead shall rise with them they will create a war that will tear the very fabric ofxistence Sanity wasn t real It was a myth a delusion In a mad world in a reality governed by faith and belief and delusion what was sanity It s madness Fletcher has once again surpassed all my xpectations this book was incredible And I m not just saying that lightly people were telling me it s so much darker then Beyond Redemption of course I didn t believe them because let be honest that book was just a black void of darkness however It S True This Book s true This book so much darker then BR This novel just like its predesscor was a slow burn the first 25% could be considered boring however the concept is interesting nough to keep you Multichannel Marketing Ecosystems engaged at around the 30% mark you won t be able to put the novel down as it gets really intense keeps that pace until the last page AND THAT ENDING WAS THE BEST ENDING IVE EVER READ seriously it was fucking crazy But the main thing that drew me in was Fletcher s ability to make the vile characters so much deep and likeable Maybeven a tad loveable they have regrets they want redemption some of them Extending Symfony 2 Web Application Framework even want to be better people so the character development isxtremely well done and uite frankly some of the best I ve read in a long time But they are all still uite frankly some of the best I ve read in a long time But they are all still villains and as the saying goes It s a shite world Shite things happen Fletcher has a way with words his writing is flawless and it s actually full of words of wisdom I saved so many uotes from this gem because I just adored nearly Angels Whiskey every sentence If I were to compare his prose to another author i would say it s very similar to Abercrombie s writing style however for me I think Fletcher is just that little bit better like a tiny smidgen and that s just because of his creativity he has created a terrible spit and phlegm filled world with terrible characters whereveryone is ugly so for me this is one of the most uniue and imaginative stories I ve read in a long time and contains one of the most different plot lines I ve had the pleasure to read Another thing Fletcher does well is he has you on the Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain: Volume Two: A Survey of Village Temples and Ritual Activities edge of your seat while your reading It s a very unpredictable read anything could happen at anytime and he definitely doesn List of crimes he was unwilling to commit It was such a short list How could straying from it have gone so wrongNow Bedeckt must undo the damage caused by wandering from his precious list The Geborene god seeks to remake the world with his obsessive need for cleanliness and perfection but Bedeckt is going to bring him down Nothin. Give a shit about killing his main characters soxpect the unexpected I also love the fact the story is told in multi person POV there s a lot of story lines going on but they are all wrapped up neatly with a big blood vomit phlegm stained bow at the nd It s definitely another one of those thought provoking novels that has you uestioning your own sanity and wondering if the person in the mirror is actually a part of your delusions and secretly wants to choke the life from your body for fun remember if the person in the mirror starts talking to you The mirror ver lies so you can t trust them The Mirrors Truth also brings some refreshing themes to the typically tropes your used to in fantasy novels with some mind blowing differentness included in the mix so if your sick of boring books you should definitely check out Fletcher s work My prior complaints I had with book one were definitely sorted out the word shite is used less and the German names are becoming Wish You Were Here: An Essential Guide to Your Favorite Music Scenes—from Punk to Indie and Everything in Between easier to handle plus don t forget to use this saviour as a reference if you decide to pick up his work it s an absolute must Beyond Redemption Wiki I love that moment when you see it in theiryes the dawning understanding that you have absolutely and utterly rutted their lives It is the most delicious meal you will The Day Christ Was Born ever taste And the complete the betrayal the better the flavour I feel likeveryone on 5 Nights: Sinful Delights Boxed Set earth whines for diversity in books this authors work is so diverse it s ridiculous It featuresvery type of crazy The Seventh Witch every skin colour it alsoxplores lesbian relationships But in saying that if your someone who likes those things but are overly sensitive to violence and triggers And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake eg rape murder torture Don t touch these books seriously They are incredibly twisted gritty disturbing If I see someone read and trash these books I may have to stab them with a blunt object I m notven joking I will feel personally wounded by your hate I love these books like a child Who could love this No one No one could love such a vile person Our scars are reminders of the mistakes we ve made Sometimes the most unpredictable people were the most predictable all fanart by uint VonCanonAnother Warning just in case you didn t read the last one you should not read these novels if your overly sensitive they contain child abuse rape disturbing themes animal abuse and uite possibly the most cringiest torture scenes Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America ever seriously one had me cowering in the corner and I honestly felt truly ill while reading it Also there s some weird rutting shite going on Erdbeh ter watched as heyed a scab licking his lips She watched hunger and disgust do war Hunger won He ate the scab so if your a Sueamish petal stay away Poets and story tellers always went on about how terrible that first kill was how it haunted people Bedeckt laughed The Pocket Wife every time he heard that Such utter shite Murder was nothing Recommended to all fans of grimdark and anyone with a harden heart whose looking for something different Fletchers stories are a hidden gem that should be onvery hardcore fantasy fans favourite listPs Just realised I wrote a novel on a novelPss Michael sorry to be an annoying pig rutter but can you seriously hurry up and write book three Please thank youReview for series so far Beyond Redemption 55The Mirrors Truth 55Total rating so far 10010Review for Beyond Redemption You can find this review and my other reviews at Booksprens This is why I love grimdark fantasy The Mirror s Truth is grimdark fantasy at its best and it deserves only the highest of praise from meThis is one of those books that will be The Color of Our Sky engraved in my hall of remembrance If you re afraid of trying grimdark fantasies remember a road less traveled can make all the difference Who knows Maybe this could be one of your best reads tooSomewhere in the middle of my read through Beyond Redemption I knew I had to drop any planned reading in my schedule and continue to the seuel immediately I m glad I did because this was one of the best readingxperiences I ve ver had in the genre When I stumble upon a fantastic book I always try to savor and stretch my reading time as long as possible If I fail to do this it means that the book is so good that it nded up overpowering my will I nded up finishing The Mirror s Truth in less than two days so go figureFletcher has Mirror s Truth in less than two days so go figureFletcher has upon all the groundwork he stablished previously in Beyond Redemption The plot is a direct continuation of what happened at the Cabaret: A Roman Riddle end of the previous book Bedeckt who defines himself by his list of crimes that he s committed to avoiding strayed once from that commitment The Mirror s Truth revolves around the aftermath of that decision and the chaos it spawned While the scope of the plot isn t aspic as before it s ually amazing maybe ven so in a different way because this time the plot is character driven Even with the changes in the narrative direction the book is still filled with a myriad of madness manipulations violence and intriguing philosophies It s also brutal ngaging and surprisingly poignant than before Combined with a well balanced pacing and the growing tension that accumulated with ach page turned the story All Roads Lead Home eventually reached an intricate unforgettablemotional tornado of clashing delusions that left me completely breathless The conclusion of this book is one of the best conclusions to a book I ve ver read the sheer brilliance of it is simply indisputableOne of the biggest challenges in grimdark fantasies is to create lovable characters despite their morally gray code specially in cases like this series where characters tend to be vil and sociopathic I believe that no one in this world is completely good not me not you not anyone We have all done some bad things and made mistakes we wish we could take back The same goes for vil characters I believe that deep inside them there could be still a sliver of goodness I m not trying to be pessimistic That s humanity and it s realistic In a way that s the point of grimdark fantasy and why I love the genre Fletcher nailed this situation with the accuracy of a sniper As the book shifted its narration to a character driven style we get to The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis explore of these deranged characters thoughts and sense of longingspecially for the main trioThe stupendous characters development is one of the aspects that truly made this book superior from its predecessorThe world building also significantly improved If Fletcher had stuck with what he made in Beyond Redemption honestly I would ve been okay with it However he instead made it ven better with Geisteskranken The Delusional appearances I mean c mon there s ven a DRAGON Look at the book cover a dragon and xploration of Afterdeath The xposition of Afterdeath and how it influenced and affected the real world is truly amazing it s like we have two worlds to Just Cause explore rather than one Don tven get me started on the Mirror lements which I could gush about but I strongly believe it s something that you have to truly xperience for yourselfFrom my past xperiences in the genre a lot of grimdark authors tended to have prose that s flowery than flowers themselves I personally dislike that Sometimes the words aren t ven necessary other than to make the sentences sound cooler It ruins the flow of the book for me when I have to think what the hell is the author is trying to say or looked at the dictionary repeatedly Doesn t mean it s a bad thing at all I just feel that there should be a line on this because anything that s too much isn t good Fletcher s prose isn t like that all No words are wasted verything is crucial and yet it s addictive immersive and asy to access That said considering that The Mirror s Truth is indie I did find some typos throughout my read Typos never bother my reading xperience unless it s out of control and that s why it won t affect my overall assessment I m just letting you know that there are some here I also love how ach chapter almost always starts with a philosophical passage that s ssential to the atmosphere and background of the mad world This one in particular is my favorite We are ach living a story What many of us are too afraid to admit is that we are the authors of our story You are living the life you chose for yourself You are living the result of Fiesta Moon each andvery one of your choices If you are letting others make decisions for you you are allowing them to write your story Do they have your best interests at heart If you are unhappy whose fault is that Don t like your life go write yourself a better one Finally I want to address the aesthetic factors and production value Unlike Beyond Redemption The Mirror s Truth is self published there s a reason for this but it s too long for me to The Perfect Christmas Gift explain here You can read about it in the acknowledgment section orven just ask the author about it Don t let this fact discourage you though Beyond Redemption has a cool cover it was drawn by one of my favorite artists Richard Anderson but it honestly didn t capture the madness of the world The Mirror s Truth book cover was done by a different artist and let me just says that it s pure badassery and it fully captured what Fletcher The Taste of Night envisioned in the world he createdPicture The Mirror s Truth Book Cover in all its glory by John Anthony Di Giovanni Click here for H version we also have the matter of materials Self published trade paperbacks somehow seem to have better materials than what big publishing companies use The Books of Babel from Josiah Bancroft which I possess along with this book justify my reasoning The papers used are smooth and thin The ink glistens as if it was just printed which made my readingxperience ven better They also look wet under the light if you re looking at it from the right angle If all books published by big publishing company were the same superb uality I can guarantee you I wouldn t be reading from books The Trust everTo do a tiny bit of comparison in overall uality this series just judging from the two available books are in my opinion better than all books written by Mark Lawrence Brian Staveley and I ve read all of them before saying this The fact that The Mirror s Truth is self published makes thisven crazier and is why I will do A Scandalous Regency Christmas everything I can to make sureveryone notices and reads this book You can thank me or send me hate mail later but please give it a try firstHonestly speaking grimdark fantasy is one of my favorite genres The Return especially in manga However I ve been disappointed a lot with grimdark novels There are some great ones for sure but nonever made it into my favorites of all time shelves so far xcept for Abercrombie s books however Fletcher did it twice in succession with this series Joe Abercrombie has always been one of my favorite authors and he still is I crowned him as the best grimdark author of all time but do note that I haven t read Malazan yet at the time of writing this review so I can t say anything for Steven Erikson Now I finally have someone on my list that can share that throne with himThere will be standalone novels taking place in the same world like Swarm and Steel which was just released yesterday and which I ll be reading next there will also be one book to conclude this series This Means The Manifest means the Manifest main series will be a trilogy Whatever the future holds Fletcher will have my full support not only because I need but because the world of fantasy needs of the originality that he can deliver I know veryone who has Read This Series Will Agree With Me That If There this series will agree with me that if there an author that deserves our support Fletcher is that author With The Mirror s Truth Manifest Delusions has already cemented its uality as one of the best grimdark fantasies series I ve Prince Hafizs Only Vice ever read along with The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie and at the same time is the number one most underrated series I vever read The Mirror s Truth is a seuel manifested from a mixture of superlative imagination and genuine talent that Aristotle and Poetic Justice every fan of the genre must read I absolutely recommend this book with all my heart brain and delusionsThere s noxcuse here The only reason you should not read this book is if you re dead in which case you ll still find me And Bid Him Sing: A Biography of Countée Cullen enslavingveryone to read this book from the Afterdeath Mwahahahahaha Pardon me that was my doppelganger speaking I ll shut him up now Seriously though read this book You can find this and the rest of my Adult EpicHigh Fantasy Sci Fi reviews

G can stop him Not Bachelors and Bunnies: The Sexual Politics of Playboy even deathThe two friends he abandoned in the Afterdeath chase after Bedeckt bent on revenge Psychotic assassins hunt him Something cold andvil follows lurking in the clouds above shredding reality with its delusions Madness and sanity war stretching and tearing the very fabric of xistence The dead shall ris.
