The sequel seems to be a lifetime away from the first book. Set in a time of chaos, war and loss, we see the characters take their own paths in this fight whilst dealing with past consequences and new dangers.
Any book lover worth their salt has experienced those dreaded book withdrawals. When twisting plotlines, emotional scenes, quality characters and intense cliff hangers have taken you on an emotional journey of epic proportions. You can't help but feel emotionally drained after all of that. I myself get incredibly invested in every book I read, to the extent that I'm balling my eyes out with every character death, laughing at witty monologue and pining after every heart wrenching hero/heroine.
It was hard to narrow down my favourite books as I have read so much over the years so I decided to list my favourite authors instead. Some of these haven’t been read in some years but are so good that they have made an impact on my reading tastes and what I value in a piece of text. Although I am introduced to new authors and books all the time, these are the ones that stand out in my mind even now.
