There are a great many book which inspired me but few had the impact that Gail Z Martin’s Chronicles of the Necromancer had. This epic fantasy series has all the ingredients of being a mega seller – and it’s one of those titles where even a cynic like myself has to bow down and admit that the fame is well earned.
In the following episode I will explore the plot, characters and world building of this series.

She also hosts the Ghost in the Machine podcast (Thus proving once and for all that great minds love to hear their own voice)
This series was one of the very first books I’ve ever picked up and I was still stoked (and totally squealing like a girl) when the final book of the Fallen Kings Cycle, The Dread came out. I spent hours reading it (sometimes/ often skipping lectures just to finish an extra chapter.
My review of the entire 6 books: TEN STARS. (5 for the actual content and then another five for making me want to live inside the books and write my own novels)
(bdw Gail, if you’re ever listening to this, just say hi on twitter or something. It would so make my day. Or maybe if you wanna have me on your podcast or something – I may be pushing it here)
OK enough fanboying.
Enjoy the clip.
Till next time
