Weber! But, also Ringo. Sneaky, picking a collaborative work like that...
Incidentally, what do you think of that series?

All right then, let's go with another protagonist, for the next challenge:
Khaavren

...name that author! (;

Wow, good one Dem. Can't say I have any idea on your question. I really need to read more, it would seem.

Yeah, you're right, that one might be a bit tough. If nobody gets it today I'll put up another clue, a more-popular character by the same author.

OK, well it's later than I expected to post this...due to some unanticipated transmigration difficulties with the board. But that's all solved now, I'm assured.

So, another hint for the same author is the person:
Vlad Taltos

Shame if you only read my post quick excerpt you'd know. As it is I am at a brain fart and can't think of one so I pass the reins to who ever reads this next.

I guess that's me again.

Ok, name the author for the following poem:

Nadir we,
Youth-born,
bloodletters
ax wielders,
Victors still.

I'm gonna say Gemmell, what with 'Nadir' and all, but I'm not sure about the book.

Hmmm, I'd like to say 'A Song of Ice and Fire', but that hyphen and your promise of not being easiness has thrown me off...

If I'm right, I've got another person one:
