Simply, you write a really bad fantasy book. The only books Newcomb ever read were Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth and maybe a few badly written bondage novels. At least Goodkind can write ONE novel half decently which is more than Newcomb can claim by a few miles. The blurb on The Fifth Sorceress claims it is the epic fantasy of the year.
While Newcomb certainly has a fertile imagination, it's fertile in the same way a sexually frustrated, disturbed teenage boy's might be. We get sultry sorceress after sorceress whose only role in the story is to satisfy the author's fantasies about bad, bad, bad women in leather tights. If you are going to write soft porn scenes every ten pages, by golly at least make them GOOD sex scenes. Newcomb can't even manage to do that right. With page after page of painful exposition, Newcomb attempts to translate his pornographic fantasies into credible plot devices.
I'm not even going to describe the insult to both women and the English language THAT attempt has birthed into the world. His books are so riddled with cliches, it's no surprise Newcomb sinks to the bottom of the quality barrel. I can't tell you how offensive to your eyes it is to just look at a page written by this man. Look, it says something when the series even garnered its very own website about how bad it really is. And rarely will you ever see a book that gets hundreds of essay-sized one-star amazon reviews throughly bashing the novel every way since Sunday.
It took to about book five of this dreck before the publisher mercifully put Newcomb out of his writing misery. When that moment happened, I'm sure there were angelic choirs singing in full force. Some people might be wondering why bestselling author Terry Goodkind is missing from the top 25 best fantasy books. This is one of the most "asked" questions emailed to me and left in the comments section on the top list. I've drastically updated this section to more solidly make my case, to all the Goodkind fanboys out there who've been leaving the hate mail in my inbox, about just WHY Sword of Truth is so very bad.
I hope this helps show why I feel these books are bad, rather than just stating that they are. Well gents and ladies, I have been saving a special spot in the Worst Fantasy section for him. Wait, you tell me: He is a best seller. Yea, but then again so is Snooky from Jersey Shore. Even after a full year up here, Goodkind is still staying firmly planted at the number 3 spot, and I don't plan on moving him anytime soon, unless someone manages to top the level of drivel spewing forth from his pen.
Though there are some new contenders for worst title, there are no real challengers just yet. Maybe next year will bring something new to the table. So Why is BadKind so Good. Sorry, that came out wrong. Why is NoGoodkind so Good? Opps, sorry, he's so bad I'm getting my words twisted up here. Seriously people, if you think Goodkind is the Second Coming of Christ to the fantasy genre, you haven't read any real fantasy books yet. Don't ask me to add his name to any of the Best Book Lists, because I'm not going to. I'll admit that Goodkind's first few novels were kind of entertaining in a sick sort of way, but the entertainment soon got lost behind the sheer awfulness of the man's writing.
The idea was good, but the problem is that Goodkind lacked the actual writing skills to translate ideas to paper. He broke just about every 'don't do this when you're writing a novel' rule in this book. Heck, he probably even broke a few writing rules that haven't been invented yet! NoGoodKind's books are a "College English Fiction Class case study" for what not to do when writing a novel. He's the Chuck Norris of the fantasy landscape, able to defeat every dark god without breaking a sweat. He's so full of altruistic goodness that he's got a halo, except when you disagree with him and he kills you.
Hell, he even goes all Chuck Norris in Book 8 on a bunch of unarmed farmer pacificists because they don't have his vision of moral clarity by not believing in absolute good and evil. So he slaughters these weak cowards and is continually praised for this over the course of the novel by Goodkind. But wait, isn't killing people who disagree with you Fascism?
Nooo, that couldn't be the case, since Goodkind is so enlightened. But wait, there is more badness to come. Oh yea, he's so bad and by baaad, I mean good that he rips a man's spinal cord out with his bare freaking hands -- you can practically hear the Mortal Kombat "Finish Him" voiceover in the background. If that's not manly and badassism, I don't know what is.
A few other godlike traits: To delve into more of the hero's badism, let's sum it up a bit avoid this paragraph if you don't want to read spoilers the entire series:. Farm boy finds a super sword and becomes the super Seeker of Truth, basically a badass dimwit with the big, big sword who goes around stabbing bad guys or simply any character who actually has the gall to disagree with his -- cough Goodkind's-- philosophy which is in fact a badly written version of Ayn Rand's Fountainhead.
But wait, there's more to big ol' teddy bear Richard. You see, he's really also a hidden prince too, and a pretty damn handsum one at that. No but wait, he's also a Wizard. Did I forget to mention that he's also a War Wizard on top of being a regular wizard which is basically a Wizard 2. Oh, let's not forget about the part where he becomes KING ruler of an entire continent. Did I miss anything? Oh yes, I forgot: Can't forget the other character: Kahland Amnell, Richards love interest princess and Mary Sue extraordinaire. Richard Rauhl is pretty much the fantasy version of Goku from Dragon Ball Z -- always just one step away from powering up to some new super ability to save the day.
I'd like to say it's a more intelligent series than an anime made for kids, but I dont' think I can even give the series that sort of credit. Goodkind has a disturbing fascination with the domination and rape of women. I mean you have to wonder about the guy when pretty much every page involves some sadistic torture and rape of yet another innocent and lovely woman. Man, we get it guy: Now stop writing about the same damn thing for 10, pages! Either way, enough of your boy fantasies please! Now if only the public could be stabbed with that same Sword of Truth that Richard Rhaul carries around, the truth of how bad this series really is would be revealed to the world.
Did I mention that the writing quality is bad, like atrociously bad with -ly adverbs thrown in before practically every single verb, horrible grammar, and a plot so full of holes that it sinks to the bottom of the quality barrel? But by far the worst literary crime is Goodkind's penchant for pausing the story while he pontificates and pontificates and pontificates about the nature of good and evil through his characters.

- See a Problem?;
- Hasty Decision.
- Customers who bought this item also bought.
- Spiritual Leadership In A Secular Age: Building Bridges Instead Of Barriers (TCP Leadership Series)!
- Quand le destin sen mêle (Prelud) (French Edition).
I mean, it gets absolutely ridiculous in the later books. The early books actually have the semblance of a plot and characters, but by the 6th book, something starts to go seriously wrong with the story threads, and Goodkind decides he's going to write his own version of The Fountainhead starring Richard, Kahland, and evil Emperor dude who wants to kill the world.
At one point I think I skipped something like 30 pages of Richard pontificating and the plot or story didn't miss a single beat. If you want to read Goodkind, you can save yourself a lot of pain and just skip straight to the source: No, it took a string of absolute trash to land him on the worst fantasy book list. His recent book titles can be used as a euphemism for crap, puke and other less-than-wholesome words.
I now hear that Goodkind has decided to embrace the self-publishing movement and inflict even more books on the public, this time with even less editorial control, since he's now going to be the author, editor, and publisher. God save us from the horror of it all! I fully expect putting Goodkind in this section will rile up some of his fans and feel free to express yourself in the comment section , but before posting anything nasty or libeling my character and tastes, please read the top 5 books on my Top 25 Best Fantasy Book list, THEN come and tell me why NoGoodkind should be taken off this list.
No saving this one from the fall. A shameless rip from Tolkien. And I mean a really, really, really shameless rip.
Kindle Feature Spotlight
If Terry Brooks 'borrows' ideas from Tolkien, McKiernan straight out copies them word for word, changing a couple of syllables here and there. Shame on the man for lacking even the creativity to change the characters to something NOT directly copied from Tolkien. Frankly, if Tolkien was still alive, McKiernan would have been sued.
And it gets worse as you read. I almost hope a copyright theft lawsuit by the Tolkien estate stops this crime of a series from doing any more damage to tender young fantasy minds. Apparently this is how the whole sordid mess started: McKiernan suffered a terrible motorcycle crash, and upon waking, decided he wanted to write a sequel to LOTR and I think he did so.
A publisher expressed interest in this terrible idea given literary form and sent a letter to the Tolkien Estate seeking the rights to publish the sequel. The Estate was not pleased and denied to grant the rights; McKiernan was then told by the publisher to re-write LOTR with different character names as the backstory to the sequel. And the demon known as The Iron Tower was infamously birthed into this world. These are simplistic popcorn-style fantasy that don't offer anything new to the genre or even attempt to provide anything outside of a strictly regimented and never-changing formula.
Popcorn can be good, but by golly at least make sure it's good popcorn. I'm not against popcorn fantasy, but I am against badly made popcorn fantasy. These books may have been entertaining when you were a kid or new to fantasy, but if you manage to evolve your taste in fantasy, these books taste about as good as stale bread.
Badly written fantasy cliches ripped straight from Tolkien's world. Bad prose that's more wordy than a drunk Snookie, re-used plots that are about as unoriginal as a copy of the Mona Lisa, and cardboard characters so flat you could use them as paper. Yea yea, there are worse out there. I'm not going so far as to label these in the "Terribly Written Books" category, but on the whole there is soooo much better to read out there right now. This badly written popcorn fantasy is the kinda stuff that gives the fantasy genre a bad name as a whole.
They're like that cheap type of bread you pick up for fifty cents in the discounted section at Safeway. You might think you got a good dealtill you find it crumbles to pieces on the way home. Pick up a real author like George Martin or Joe Abercrombie and enjoy a real feast. Basically see the 5 ranking Dragonlance for my reasoning why Forgotten Realms is some of the worst fantasy tripe out there. Both series are pretty much the same. Between Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms, I'll choose Dragonlance -- but this is like making the choice between whether to jump from the Empire State Building or run out of oxygen while on a deep water scuba dive -- either choice sucks and sucks bad.
I'm not a big fan of the Shannara series at all. I've been getting email after email wondering why Brooks is not on the Top 25 Fantasy list. Let me state it right here: Shannara was Brook's attempt to milk the whole Tolkien craze during the 80s. Brooks is the literary version of the band Nickleback: About as much as watching Bevis and Butthead reruns. There is a marketing concept called first-mover advantage. Brooks with his bad rewrite of Lord of the Rings did just this.
As far as I'm concerned, Brooks is a hack writer who made it big because he was in the Tolkien Clone market first. If you've read one Shannara book, you've read all twenty of them, or thirty I can't remember the exact number as Brooks churns them out like a Chinese noodle factory does noodle boxes. One Shannara book is the same as the rest of them. Hell for me would be being locked into a room with an infinite supply of Shannara books to read. I'd start puking my eyes out around book 20, and by book 40, I'd probably bite my own throat out.
I beg you Terry Brooks, stop writing new Shanara books. If someone points a gun to your head and forces you to read a Shannara novel, perhaps Elfstones is the best of the bunch. But then again, that's like asking which limb you want broken. The correct answer is "none of them. And dammit, let's get into the Shannara's continuing use of "The Elfstones", a name that itself is borrowed directly from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Man, these Elfstones are simply an outrageous naked plot device that Brooks recycles over and over for more plot fodder, with each additional book having new powers associated with them.
After book 20, I still don't think even Brooks knows what the hell these things actually do. In the first book, they help you find stuff, act as a nice magical flashlight and come in handy when battling magical demon types, and even work as a sort of "demon alarm system" if there are, like, nasty demons loafing around.
Talk about no internal rules of magic here. About the only things you can't do with these special stones are your tax forms and your college homework. I'm not insulting Terry Brooks as an author. Ok, well I kinda am.
Magic Kingdom For Sale was a light, entertaining series, and his Void series is pretty good, even though he ends up tying it to the whole Shannara universe big mistake. So yes, Brooks writes some decent books And God knows he's had enough practice over the years with the dozens of books he's churned out , but just avoid anything with the word Shannara in the title and you'll probably be OK.
I'm sorely tempted to add the "Terribly Written Books" category in there too, but there are frankly much worse books out there and the prose is not THAT bad. The main problem with these as they are so unoriginal that it's almost funny. If there was an award for the most inspidly unoriginal and cliche-ridden story out there, Icewind Dale would get it maybe right up there with the infamous Eye of Argon short story. Also called The Icewind Dreck Trilogy. Every time I think about this series, a horrible taste comes to my mouth. What is that taste? I think it's literary puke.
Salvatore has not yet written any fantasy book worth putting on the top lists, people. The series is the poster boy for fantasy banality -- there is not a single speck of creativity to this series. The same can be said of pretty much all the rest of R. This author has the dubious distinction of getting TWO of his series tossed onto this list. You can literally hear the sound of the dice rolling in the background as you read. Wikipedia defines hack writer as "writers who are paid to churn out sensational, lower-quality "pulp" fiction.
Salvatore, with one or two new low-quality fantasy novels coming out each year -- and not a one that has a single iota of originality. To cover all bases, I'll throw Salvatore's other popular fantasy series in here for good measure, The Dark Elf series. An atrocious mix of bad writing with a not-so-subtle attempt at creating a sympathetic and misunderstood bad-boy character. If there was Twilight for men, The Dark Elf trilogy gets my vote.
Salvatore is one of those authors that does a disservice to the rest of the real writers out there. He writes bad popcorn fantasy over and over. Now maybe he's fine with this, and maybe his hordes of fans are fine with reading this stuff too. But really, I can't honestly recommend any of Salvatore's work to any fantasy reader. To me, that's the same as telling someone to eat fast food instead of something healthy. If you want to read shallow fantasy that offers about as much nutrition as a hastily made McDonald's cheeseburger, then R.
Salvatore's works are exactly what you need. For the rest of you who value your time, read something better. If you have to read action heroic fantasy, read David Gemmell or Michael Stackpool -- these writers are many times superior to Salvatore. And what an awful waste of time this book is. The number of stupid characters present in the novel is borderline ridiculous. There is supposed to be a plot and all, but frankly, it gets lost amid the sappy ham-fisted romance and terrible plot lines.
Frankly, I can't remember just how bad the writing was -- probably because the plot was so boring, and the characters so insipid that I was sleeping through most of the book. This book really belongs on the Harlequin romance shelves and NOT the fantasy shelf. Plowing through The Wayfarer Redemption has scared me away from ever touching anything written by an author with the name of Douglass ever again.
There is some other sequel or prequel trilogy called The Axis trilogy or something, but frankly, I can't even bring myself to care enough to write something bad about it other than to say: There is no redemption for The Wayfarer Redemption. These books are going straight to literary hell. This one is pretty close to tying with IceWind Dale for the "most Insipidly Bland" fantasy series ever. Oh boy, where do I start with this one?
The main character is an utter dolt, the supporting cast cookie-cut out, and the plot There were holes in the plot the size of Australia and characters appear from nowhere only to wander out of the plot just as fast as they were introduced. I'm not even going to get into the characterization -- it was about as laughable as the nonsensical plot threads found in every single one of the books. David Drake or should I maybe start calling him David Dreck?
Ok, that was just mean, I admit Maybe it's not as bad, prose-wise, as some of the other stinkers in the genre, but the fact that Eddings has been re-writing the same story over and over and over and over has earned this book this dubious award. The Redemption of Althalus had nothing redeemable about it.
The characters were cookie cutouts of bad stereotypes and the plot was boring. God forgive the author for the slaughter of trees involved in producing that crap. I would say that Eddings has his own vanilla style of prose, but then again, vanilla actually has some flavor. Eddings does write some entertaining fantasy for kids, but he's pretty much rewritten his original series four or five times over.
The fantasy world has long since evolved. Ok, I might take a lot of flak for this, but I think she is, in general, a horrific author. Her plots tend to muddle around in never-never-land and characters are flat as a cookie. The only time she manages to crawl her way out of the bowels of mediocrity is on the contrails of more talented coauthors. Not all her books are bad; several books she coauthors with more talented co-authors I might add are actually quite good The Shadow of a Lion. I wish I could say the same about the rest of her books.
Tears of a Heart marks the tale of a young man, Aeden, who unwittingly shapes the world. The writing is beautiful, layered, and timely. Chase Blackwood weaves an intricate tale that hints at so much more. And that may be its greatest challenge. Tears of a Heart, the first book in the series, was beautifully written, and interesting. It shows us an amazing world filled with detail and depth, but for a portion of it, just a touch slow. The writing, such beautiful writing, overshadows this, as does the ending.
Ghost Virus by Graham Masterton
Tower of the Arkein , the next book in the series, is where the story truly begins to unfold, and where Chase Blackwood shines as an author. It is fast paced, full of action, adventure, and love. A very strong entry in the fantasy genre, and if the next book is equally as good, expect it to make quite a splash. You can buy on Amazon now. There were some initially vague similarities to The Wheel of Time, but that soon changed -- and not for the better.
The story started out strong, but somehow everything just grinds to a halt, and I stopped caring about the characters or story.
It just sort of dies a slow death, with each of the following books killing the series even more. The characters were two-dimensional and absolutely do not evolve during the course of the series. The author tries way too hard with his use of similes. After a while, the book felt to me like it was an unfinished Creative Writing project that's been collectively written with the sole intent of coming up with jarring, awkward similes.
There's a ton of inconsistency too when it comes to the story elements. Characters actions are inconsistent from moment to moment -- at one point, they are in charge and confident, and at another point, they are dimwit followers who act out of character. And the Rune Stone, a major plot element, just loses its free will at one point in the story without any reason.
It's almost as if the author was suddenly inspired by Edding's The Belgariad and started pumping out characters taken straight from it. Meli is a re-named Polgara, Travis comes off as a less feisty version of Garion, Falken is borrowed from Belgarath, and Beltan is Mandorellan's clone.
The world is fairly undefined too. It seems as though the characters just walk and walk around in some vaguely midieval landscape. I have a bit of a problem when, several books into a series, the author suddenly decides to make the main character gay. Now that's fine if this is the case from the start of the series, but when the author suddenly pulls homesexuality out of a hat way into the novel without warning, well that's not quite fair. Frankly, the author has failed to create a believable world or to create an interesting plot that takes you anywhere, with fully fleshed out characters.
The whole series lacks any sort of soul too it; all in all, everything from the characters to the world and the plot are wafer thin. If mediocrocy could be celebrated, this series would get an award. I can't argue with Card's genius as a writer and the fact that he's usually a great writer, usually. But this book just doesn't merit the sort of praise people seem to give it. Card is a superbly talented writer, creating works of celebrated genius like Ender's Game. However, when he starts bringing his religion into his writing and using his characters and settings to pontificate his strident political views, things take a decided turn for the worse.
That's fine if you are writing a book for Mormons, but alas most of us are not. To really understand anything about this series, you'll need to have read both the Bible and The Book of Mormon. For most of you, climbing Everest would be more appealing. The whole religious thing aside, the story itself and the plot wasn't very interesting. Overall, this whole series was meh, highly overrated and quite boring to read. Epic fantasy that goes bad. In short, I would say the magic system is quite fascinating and unique, almost making up for the fact that everything else is pretty bad.
With the exception of maybe Sanderson's allomancy magic in the Mistborn series, The Rune Lord's magic system just about tops off all the other magic systems out there. Stealing attributes from other people and adding them to your own to gain powers is genius. Keep taking people's abilities and become even more powerful till you achieve something like Godlike superhuman abilities. Everything else about the series comes off as pretty crappy, however. The plot -- there is a bad guy to kill and giant cockroaches to stamp out. There's a young prince with some amazing gifts who just might be the one to save the world from evil.
The whole plot threads get even more muddled later on in the series when Farland, perhaps to keep the money train flowing his way, starts writing a sequel, turning the whole series into a sort of angels vs. It's pretty clear that this whole good vs evil thing was hastily added to the canon of the world to continually milk the series.
The whole thing brings to mind Raymond E. Feist's milking of the Riftwar universe by having the heroes continually struggling against a world-crushing dark god who the heroes conveniently find out by book 10 is the real one pulling the threads behind all the lower bad guy dark lords they keep defeating. All in all, Farland's writing comes off as tasteless and bland, devoid of any sort of actual style.
There's also some pretty big inconsistency between what he's trying to say with his words and what he actually describes. This is even more true in the sections where he's trying to convey something grand and dramatic, but in actuality the whole thing comes off as unintentionally funny because it's so gosh darn corny and badly written. There are certainly worse books out there, and in the epic fantasy category, there's plenty of dreck. The Rune Lords are not terribly bad, but there is something missing in them.
Only read these if you've plowed through everything else that's good. The books are not really bad enough to label as the worst, but I feel I should point them out as books you should try to avoid unless desperate. Wow, The Belgariad seems to score an impressive 5 out of 6 on our list of "bad fantasy book" categories. Impressive indeed, and made only more impressive by that fact that Eddings strikes again with another entry on the Worst Fantasy Ever list.
You have to give the man a clap here -- this is truly an astounding feat, matched only by RA Salvatore who also makes the list twice, but with fewer bad categories applied to his name. Ok, where to start here. I think we should take the time to use Eddings as a case study along the lines of something like "The Portrait of a Fantasy Hack Writer.
I don't know if the wiki writer had Eddings in mind, but he sure fits the bill. I'll throw in a few that are missing: Check, check, and double check. Yup, he's a hack. A big no no. If you can't write well, stick to at least being honest about your lack of writing skills and stick to writing insipid dreck that you are comfortable doing. Let me put it this way: Hell, he's more than willing to hack write his own hack written stuff that's a hack of a hack of Lord of the Rings.
But the level of commercial success Eddings achieved for what amounts to a subpar hackjob is ridiculous. These are books that have not aged well with the evolving conventions of fantasy -- they are highly simplistic. You may enjoy them if they are some of the first fantasy books you've read in the genre, but probably not if you've read some of the much better fantasy on the market.
On the positive side, the books are pretty entertaining for the year-old age range, meaning your kids will enjoy reading them or having you read the books out loud to them. So infamously bad that's its good. This short story has been a running joke for the past several decades and is actually quite infamous at various science fiction conventions and among writers.
The Worst Fantasy Books Ever
There's a running debate about whether this is actually a real story written by an eager 16 year old, or if it's a satire on the genre written by a collective group of real, published authors. The book famously breaks just about every "don't do" literary rule in the book. The sad thing is that there are actually some real writers like Goodkind and Newcomb who come pretty close to actually writing stories that fall pretty close to the level of badness The Eye of Argon evinces. If you're curious, you can read the hilarious annotated online version here: Gets the "Overrated Books With Undeserved Hype" as the book did get more praise than it rightly deserved.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. A Dhampir Action Thriller. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Great fast reading pulp fiction by a Master. The main character, Jed, is judge, jury and executioner all in one! Why waste time with courts and incarceration when you have a Dhampir who is on the side of good and works with a beautiful up and coming member of the Sacramento PD. Lots of fast action, laughs and suspense!
Bernie comes through with another very fun and entertaining novel. DeLeo, you did it again! Dhampir is a winner. The son of a vampire father and human mother, huh? Pulp fiction at it's best. Seeing Jedidiah's powers evolve is fascinating. Being able to filter out the evil he absorbs yet keep his humanity is just another example of how you instinctively know what your readers want. Your imagination knows no bounds.
I love the fact that some people in the government understand that thinking and acting outside the box is essential to keep fighting the bad guys. You really see what's going on in the world and in every single one of your books your heroes try to right the wrongs. I love them all!!!
You have too many fans out there who, like me, can't be kept waiting. One person found this helpful. I was very surprised that I liked the book. It was a great read. You could do a sequel with all the interesting characters. I'm still waiting for a second book in this series. I hope you make it a series. I believe I have purchased and read every Amazon Kindle book by this author and I have enjoyed them all.
I highly recommend them to friends and acquaintances, however the books have been becoming more and more to the far right and islamophobia reigns supreme in thus one. Not every Muslim is a terrorist. I love the books however I am irritated by the extreme right wing angle. Yes I am in Boston and I probably am left of center, but not all liberals are pussies or bleeding hearts either. Please keep the novels coming and if you get less extreme in your perspective, I will stop whining.
Bernard DeLeo has an endless imagination. The first book in his new Dhampir series is an example of his endless imagination. It has everything I have come to expect in a DeLeo novel; interesting and compelling characters, unrelenting action, and crisp, and sometimes extremely humorous dialogue. I loved this book and look forward to the next installment.
If you like action, an interesting story, great characters, and a bit of vampire like abilities, you won't e disappointed. I believe Bernard DeLeo is a talent without peer. I will always read anything he writes. Took me a while to begin the book. Not really into blood sucking However I am so glad I didn't ignore this one. I should have known anything Bernard DeLeo writes would be great.
I'm hooked and oh so hoping this is a series. The story was exhilarating from page 1. Don't ever assume anything written by this author might not be interesting to you. He manages to prove me wrong every time I like everything Mr Delco. Writes, some more than others. I was fortunate to review this as a short story before he completed. It is a very good pulp fiction action book as are all of his books.
Well written, non stop action along with humor. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I do not read vampire books but since LEE wrote it I had to give it a try. As usual Lee writes a very good story. Jed spends a little to much time sucking on his girl friends neck.
