Review: Beyond Redemption

Beyond Redemption Beyond Redemption by Michael R. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

!!!!! Man, that was brilliant!

The layers of worldbuilding here are fascinating, as is the mere concept of the delusional world shaping. Wow. Mr Fletcher, I would be afraid to see inside your head.

Really though, this is a unique work of grimdarkian delusional fantasy. One must simply read it to understand. And even then...

I've compared this story to a blend of Joe Abercrombie and Steven Erikson. But even that doesn't do it justice, nor capture what really makes this book special. But yes, if you take the dark fantasy with a dab of humor that we see in Abercrombie, then mix it with a many-layered reality as imagined by Erikson in his Malazan books, you might have an idea of what to expect here. But then...that description probably falls short.

Easier just to read it yourself.
