Fantasy is rife with sprawling epics, series that go on and on and on and…  In fact, Bill coined the acronym LRMMVSTLB to describe this phenomenon: the long-running massive multi-volume split-the-last-book epic series.  But sometimes, you don’t want to commit to a whole series.  Sometimes, you want a nice, stand-alone fantasy novel to enjoy for a few days, rather than a tome that is going to require a multi-year commitment.fantasy and science fiction book reviews
