I guess I’m not a natural fantasy reader. I do enjoy them in the main, but I get itchy with unpronounceable names for one thing. I’ve just been sent an ARC for review and it just has “names” in it that take effort. I suppose it is difficult to write a whole new world with new names for everything but it just makes me tired. Especially anything with glottal stops and X’s in them, too. I think that’s what I like about Hobb’s books – I like the idea of the upper class and middle class named after attributes: Chivalry, Verity, Shrewd, Blade, Riddle, Civil. I suppose I don’t have the concentration these days to cope with Xe’ida and Riwgwil and names like that.
Just like to recommend this fic – Harry Dresden fandom “The Affairs of Wizards” by
