Hardcover, 312 pages. Published October 18th 2007 by Gollancz (first published January 1st 2007). Overall not a good Chris Wooding book

Hardcover, 312 pages. Overall not a good Chris Wooding book. The premise is interesting but the execution is poor, the writing doesn’t flow well, and the characters and story are not at all engaging.

Condition: Used: Very Good.

Gollancz Festival 2015. Next year I shall also be attending Eastercon in Manchester and Nine Worlds in London, as by that time I ought to be able to tell y’all something of what I’m working on.

The official internet resource on the British SF/Fantasy/YA author. It’s still in its early stages – which is presumably why I DO NOT HAVE AN ENTRY IN THE AUTHOR SECTION YET ARE YOU LISTENING GOLLANCZ CAN YOU HEAR ME? – but good for all things Gollanczy.

A subterranean world of vast caverns, underground seas, crystalline forests. A civilization born of darkness, in darkness, protected by shadows. A city of merchants, whose eyes have turned upward to the surface, where the lethal light of day beats down on their world. A conspiracy so vast that it will swallow them all. A stunningly original fantasy from a multi-award winning author. With a beautiful baroque world, sharp characterization, and Chris Wooding's trademark insight into the fantasy genre, the dawning of Halflight is an event more than worth waiting for.
I find that I am reading more and more books by UK science fiction writers. Every once in a while I read the Guardian UK book reviews. The Guardian published a favorable review of Chris Wooding's "Retribution Falls". I ordered this book from a his earlier book "Fade". Both books have been wonderful discoveries.

The imagined world that Fade is set in is a world of remarkable creativity. The world is a large moon that orbits what seems to be a gas giant in a solar system with two suns. Humans and many plants and animals cannot survive on the surface. There is, however, a whole world underground in vast caverns that include a whole ecology and multiple warring human cultures.

The portrait drawn of the warring cultures and the individuals is as complex as the underground world. The main character is a woman, who has been trained as a warrior and assassin from childhood. A number of fantasy works have such characters. As the story in "Fade" unfolds and the reader learns of the history of the woman warrior, Orna, we see complex motivations that are rarely present in fantasy works. The choices that the characters in the book make are like those in real life: they are not simple and they have unexpected results.

Chris Wooding has written many "young adult" books. With Fade and Retribution Falls he seems to be writing books with the complexity (and sexuality) of adult fiction.
Given the complexity of the author's world-building, I admit I didn't think he would be able to pull off such an engaging story in only 300 pages. Not only was it a wonderful book in its own right, I can't help wishing there was a sequel or a screenplay in the works as well. (Is there??)

I found The Braided Path trilogy years ago on a bargain book shelf and loved it. Then I donated the book, and promptly forgot the author's name & the name of the books (doh!). He doesn't seem to be very well known, which is a total shame. Years later, I tried searching for his books again and it took me forever to find the guy because he doesn't show up in searches for top fantasy authors. Trust me, I searched for a long time. It was time well spent though, since I discovered The Fade, and I referred a friend to The Braided Path trilogy & she is loving it too!
The 5th book I've read by Chris Wooding and arguably the best, although they've all been fantastic. The Fade is a standalone with, as of now, no plans for a sequel with a strong, unique female protagonist who is as vicious a lover as she is a warrior.

I do not like to give away much of the story in my reviews, but character development is far above average and "world creation" is exceptional (inhabited moon revolving a much larger gas giant; surface blasted by it's start; most of the world subterranean with large caverns and tunnels; fantastic). Action is somewhat fast pace and dialogue, though easy to follow, is full of intrigue and personality.
This is yet another great piece from Chris Wooding. In case there are prospective readers out there who don't like books with curse words or dark content, know that this book has both. Despite its darkness, it's incredibly fun to read, with a really cool main character and an awesome new world to explore very different from our own. I'd recommend to anyone who likes sci-fi, or just powerfully fun books.
The kindle version seems to have the chapters out of order.
I just finished Iron Jackal, the third in the Ketty Jay trilogy of steampunk pirate books. Hungry for more Chris Wooding I purchased ' The Fade' without knowing what I was getting into. What I found is the best book I have read since gardens of the Moon. An instantly accessible thriller with a mean visceral punch set in an immaculately conceived world. All in 400 pages.
I can't wait for the 'Ace of Skulls' in the meantime I am going to try to share this writer with as many people as possible.
Outstanding. The narrative was well constructed, the world is as unique as anything I've encountered in a fantasy novel, and the plot is both strong and compelling. I would recommend this to anyone.
my son loves this aurthor and has read all of his books. the product came immaculate as if I bought it in a bookstore.
