I love how everyone is only realizing this now, when the red wedding has been known for  13 years now

Sean Bean was the spoiler when I first started watching it. Almost like it's in his contract for work.

"If you hire me to play this role I must die at some point during the film otherwise no deal."

Brent Weeks also makes characters die at random. Well, not at random. It's still ******* awesome. His(relatively) new saga Lightbringer is pretty cool as well.
User avatar #102 to #4 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
I actually have it, and I read the first book. Idunno, I've never been one for brutal, gritty stories, I find stuff like The Ranger's Apprentice more interesting. It was a pretty nice story though.
User avatar #190 to #102 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
Dude he made a new series, it's in the future after Will and Halt, i forget the name exactly. It's about a Skandian kid though, and its really good!
User avatar #191 to #190 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
I just gotta read all his stuff, it's so amazing! I'm just really not a reader any more, I have so much else to do...
User avatar #192 to #191 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
yeah im the same way man. I try to read on occasion, but now a days its a lot harder. Oh well, Horaceordie in my opinion
User avatar #193 to #192 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
Haha, well I like Will a lot myself. He's the perfect example of how you don't know your talent before you find the way to use it properly.
User avatar #194 to #193 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
yeah true. but i just relate really well to horace, and i think him and will's story development and friendship throughout the books are just amazing
User avatar #195 to #194 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
Yeah I have to agree to that, you could really feel their friendship growing, as they matured out of those silly fights they always had.
User avatar #196 to #195 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
exactly! plus, horace will become king. how awesome is that?

Oop spoiler there
User avatar #200 to #197 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
haha well its not in the books exactly...just you figure it out later :p
User avatar #201 to #200 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
I suppose so, and it kinda seems likely, considering his relationship with the princess.
User avatar #202 to #201 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
yeah exactly. God i want to read these books again..
User avatar #203 to #202 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
I found a handful of the books cheap at a garage sale, almost perfect condition. WHO THE **** WOULD THROW THOSE BOOKS OUT?! But thank you, it was just what I needed c:
User avatar #204 to #203 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
i own every rangers apprentice book at my house ))))))) and no problem man! everyone who lives around me has no capacity for reading, so i have no one to talk to about books. Now that i have FJ, it makes things alot easier.
User avatar #205 to #204 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
And I literally know no one who knows of those books. I'm amazed they're even translated here
User avatar #209 to #205 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
may i ask, where do you live? I live in the US, and i've seen the books in my school and everything, but no one reads (that i know of) as much as i do in my school. I know im sounding like an individualist, but either way.

Rangers Apprentice is love

Rangers Apprentice is life
User avatar #210 to #209 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
I live in Denmark, and the translation is pretty well done. I actually don't think I could buy the books in English, even if I wanted to...
I also really love the Skandians, they're so badass. And they're basically Danes too, they're like my neighbors xD
User avatar #211 to #210 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
Oh okay. and yeah i love how the author uses real life countries (Araluen for England cause of longbows and island) and of course the Skandians for the Scandinavian countries. And also Gallica for the Gauls :p just the way he incorporates this is all so well done
User avatar #212 to #211 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
Yeah man, it's so good. It really might be my favorite book series, and the only one I've actually sat down and reread recently
User avatar #214 to #212 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
its definetly one of my favorites. And my favorite things to do with these type of books, or any trilogies or sagas, is to re-read them like 3 times. I've read all the LOTR books, and The Hobbit, at least 4 times.
User avatar #215 to #190 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
Yeah, and I've reread most of the Harry Potter books up to ten times... I read a lot when I was younger...
User avatar #216 to #215 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
never read those, always thought of it
User avatar #217 to #216 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
Well I just happen to read them while growing up, and as such, I really grew with the books. The first couple of books are mostly like kids action/fantasy books, and then they get grittier and grittier. I was the perfect age for reading them
User avatar #218 to #217 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
yeah i've watched the movies, the later the movie the better it got for me
User avatar #219 to #218 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
Yeah, but the movies really left out a lot of stuff too...
User avatar #220 to #219 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
oh trust me ive talked with alot of people who read the books. i know haha
User avatar #221 to #220 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
But they're still very much recommended
Also a trilogy I liked called Broken Sky... Not very well-known, but I really love it still c:
User avatar #222 to #221 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
i will definitely look it up!
User avatar #223 to #222 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
It's very original, and I love it!
User avatar #224 to #223 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
thanks for the suggestion friend
User avatar #225 to #224 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
No problem man, it's way too unknown :c
User avatar #226 to #225 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
we shall make it known
User avatar #227 to #226 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
Hehe, yeah. I'd be surprised if you could find it anywhere though...
User avatar #228 to #227 - kingofthetrolls (06/10/2013) [-]
when i get the time, ill look it up and try to find it
User avatar #229 to #228 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/10/2013) [-]
Tell me if you manage to find it, my friend

User avatar #108 to #106 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
Yeah it's by far one of my favorite book series. I mean, the characters are amazing, I've always loved such apprenticeship-stories, and their adventures are just great. I've read and reread that series more than I should have, but I haven't read the newest books. I really don't read even a tenth of what I used to, it kinda sucks ._.

and all of them as well
User avatar #147 to #55 - thewaronbeingcool (06/09/2013) [-]
Man don't bother with these ones. They're no way near as good as Frank Herbert's books.
User avatar #208 to #147 - leto (06/09/2013) [-]
meh, i already read from the butlerian jihad to dune messiah, and i am in the winds of dune, but i enjoyed the stories, even if they weren't as good as the original ones

YES!!!!!! finally more readers!!!
User avatar #43 to #4 - jcjohnson (06/09/2013) [-]
I might have to give this a read after I catch up on reading Game of Thrones.
User avatar #71 to #4 - kingofthetrolls (06/09/2013) [-]
I don't know which books i like better, between this trilogy and the lightbringer trilogy, but MY GOODNESS are these books fantastic.

I've read pretty much all and any fantasy books, like LOTR, The Hobbit, i mean, alot of stuff. Also a recommendation, The Coldfire trilogy is a VERY good read. Sorry, nerding out here, but now that I know other people enjoy these books on Fj it makes me happy

Oh and the ending of Beyond the Shadows made me cry. and I am a man. No shame, no shame at all.
#137 to #4 - amonomous (06/09/2013) [-]
Huh, I didn't think I'd see that book on this website.

Or anywhere else on the internet, for that matter.

You know, except for websites like BarnesandNobles

One of the best trilogies i have read. epic plot twists.
User avatar #188 to #4 - oxadelore (06/09/2013) [-]
Yes! I've never met another person who loves those books like I do! Hurrah for similar opinions!

Best series.

Second only to GoT
User avatar #57 to #4 - thisotherdude (06/09/2013) [-]
The first one was amazing, the second one was great, and the third one got a little too generic fantasy for my tastes. I mean book one set the whole tone as an assassin story about the ******** that is the warren's and such, but by the time we got to Azoth (or Kyler, whatever you prefer) being some noble magical ultra being of justice it started to get a little cheesy.
#13 to #4 - ironsoul (06/08/2013) [-]
I prefer the Black Prism, but the Night Angel trilogy is pretty good.
User avatar #20 to #13 - azraelthemage (06/09/2013) [-]
How many books has he release of the Light Bringer trilogy? Is that the only one?
User avatar #27 to #20 - fatmanxxxx (06/09/2013) [-]
No the second one came out last year and it's a pretty good book.
User avatar #44 to #27 - ironsoul (06/09/2013) [-]
I think the second book feels like one long transitional scene, but it isn't bad.
User avatar #122 to #44 - fatmanxxxx (06/09/2013) [-]
That what most of the book is just transitional.
#36 to #4 - Hurderp (06/09/2013) [-]
I've read the trilogy, was ******* amazing until like the last 30 or so pages in the last book. Seemed like the author kept pulling **** out of his ass.
#22 to #4 - anon (06/09/2013) [-]
As someone who has read that Trilogy R.R. Martin doesn't kill off near enough people to even come close.
User avatar #24 to #22 - azraelthemage (06/09/2013) [-]
I know. I've decided to pick up the first one, and...I feel like I should have a kill count now.
User avatar #16 to #4 - whycanticaps (06/08/2013) [-]
I take it the main character doesn't die, and then leaves you wonder who the main character is through the rest of the series
User avatar #18 to #4 - terrria **User deleted account** (06/09/2013) [-]
i have been interested, but it's the book at the store that NEVER has the first volume. can i get further encouragement besides ninjas to read this?
User avatar #19 to #18 - azraelthemage (06/09/2013) [-]
It's not about ninjas. It's a fantasy story. The back of the first volume reads as follows:

"For Durzo Blin, assassinaiton is an art - and he is the city's most accomplished artist.

For Azoth, survival is prcarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics - and to cultivate a flair for death".

Basically, it's about an assassin living in a city full of conspiracy and murder. If you like Game of Thrones, you'll like this. And no, you're not gonna find similarities with Assassin's Creed. In fact, the main character breaks every rule in the book when it comes to how Altair, Ezio, and Connor lived.

One of my greatest fears is that he will die of a heart attack before he finishes the series. (very likely given his weight and his incurable need to keep dragging out the series via killing any character with a remote chance of advancing the plot)

They completely covered their expenses on just DVD sales and turned a small profit.
Show keeps getting better and better ratings.
At the end of the season 3 there are two and a half books left that are already written, which will at minimum make another 3 seasons, more likely 4. at that time George should finish one book. Which should give them atleast another season (probably more). At that point they will either have to work with George on last season, or have him write it.
#153 to #63 - anon (06/09/2013) [-]
This season is pretty poop, and I imagine HBO will be sinking their teeth in about now, extracting what they can before the ending is "and it was all a dream".

You know, I always thought while reading books why the most terrible thing never happened. Something bad could or would happen but not the worst. I always figured it I wrote a book and killed off the main character that it would be something different. Granted, I was a kid then and this guy was already way ahead of me apparently.
