    • On the face of it, you would think that Gathering the first book in Brian G Turner s Chronicles of Empire is a fairly standard fantasy novel, where a group of disparate travellers come together by luck than judgement and find themselves drawn into a greater quest to put the world to rights And if it were to be presented to you as that you might well think ho hum.But hold your horses, because Turner subverts your expectations straight away, in the prologue, by introducing an element which effect [...]


    • Chronicles of Empire GatheringBrian G TurnerA review by AnushkaGathering is a first book in the series Chronicles of Empire by the debut writer Brian G Turner It is a fantasy book primarily set in a late Middle Ages sort of world, but there are clear elements of sci fi most represented in form of time travelers such as the main antagonist Molric and the technology to come being referenced at times.The book is an impressive debut from an author with a clear passion for his work and the work that [...]


    • I picked the Chronicles of Empire Gathering by Brian G Turner up because it promised both Fantasy and Science Fiction with a taste of something possibly of Historical Fiction It doesn t disappoint in creating that combination and I have to admit that I truly enjoyed the story and the characters But there were some elements that made this a difficult read for me and after finishing the first time through I had questions about things that I couldn t honestly say were not answered in the book becau [...]

    • This is a book that has been a long time in the making Not only has it given the writer a lot of hard work, or studying writing and understanding writing, it has also managed to spawn the biggest SFF forums on the internet, all without a word being published.But all the hard work, has it paid off Turner delivers a book that on the face of it is a standard fantasy, or at least that it how it is packaged, but within a few pages you rapidly discover there is a lot to it than that In fact I found m [...]


    • On the face of it, Gathering , the debut novel by Brian Turner, is a typical fantasy unlikely travellers fated together to battle their foes, but Tuner flips this on its head brilliantly with the introduction of Molric in the first chapter The novel s primary antagonist, Molric is a traveller from the future who brings advanced technology back with him in a bid to save the world from destruction The fact that the novels antagonist is trying to save the world speaks volumes for the world Turner h [...]


    • I only knew about this book because I m a member of SFF Chronicles, a forum set up by the author Unsurprisingly he s advertising the book on his forum and I followed the link to find out that I could borrow the book via Prime The story follows a group of travellers thrown together by circumstance, all of whom for reasons of their own are going to their country s capital city The team is rather disparate and under normal circumstances would surely have never met never mind worked together And yet [...]


    • To say that Gathering is an epic would be something of an understatement Brian Turner has collected most of the standard tropes of fantasy fiction, given many of them a brush up and turned them to fresh angles, and then thrown in a few SF elements for good measure There s a heck of a lot going on here, making for an ambitious debut novel.Some of the gambles pay off Rodrigan is an immediately sympathetic villain, and a great viewpoint from which to look at Molric s machinations Of the heroes them [...]


    • At first, I was underwhelmed There I said it, I can t take it back But bear with me The opening to Chronicles of Empire Gathering, reads like a typical fantasy trope, a group of almost seemingly random strangers meet in the midst of a storm, and somehow all contrive to group together A typical mix of Cleric, Fighter and Thief, I started to wonder if I was back in my DD days and where this was going to go Seemingly in the direction I thought, staying at inns, arriving in big cities, it all sounde [...]


    • Gathering is a strong fantasy debut, with an interesting plot twist that I had not encountered before The story unfolds as rather familiar tale of a collection of disparate characters, who become embroiled in a plot to assassinate the ruling emperor It is told in multiple POVs, something that I am fond of if done well, which this is The story flows from one POV to another, and moves along at a good pace This group of people have some expected skills the fighter, the thief, the blacksmith, the ri [...]


    • Morlic is from the future Power hungry and determined to stop the destruction he knows is to come.A group of young misfits meet and journey to the city Corianth on the promise of work Their they are joined by Ezekiel who is also from the future and determined to stop Morlic destroying humanity.Instead of finding their place they are drawn into the power struggle and their lives are in danger.A slow build up but once they reach the city it fast paced and completely draws you in Some nice twists a [...]


    • a strong, solid start to a world that I want to explore further Turner has built a cast with depth and differing motivations that I enjoyed spending time with.


    • Gathering is a book rich in characterization, plotlines, atmosphere, and period detail It has the feel of an epic fantasy large cast, characters traveling to meet their fate, graphic battle scenes, arch villains , but there s a very nice twist into another genre that unexpectedly adds layers of intrigue that I found quite pleasing.There s a huge cast of characters in the work our band of protagonists is made up of a group of strikingly well defined individuals And I was very pleased that there w [...]
