reviewed Malice by John Gwynne (The Faithful and the Fallen, #1)

Weakest book i the series

3 stars

Malice is weakest book in a great series. John Gwynne is trying way too much to be like Game of Thrones, some part are pure copy (some might like this but i dont) I have only continued because I bought all books at once. And im glade. After Malice Johns writing is finally his own and it shines. I have devoured next 3 books!
