Ah yes, my mistake; I was thinking, of course, of Richard Cypher. He lived by a Hawkwood, or Hartwood, or some such, though, did he not?

Anyway, let me try again. I believe the author is John Kearney -- I was looking for that book of his, Hawkwood's Voyage (something like that, anyway) a while ago, but wasn't actually able to find it...

For my next trick, from something I've been reading lately, is a location or landmark:
The Compass Point Towers -- Wisdom to the north, Endurance (or Honour) to the east, Grace to the south, and Compassion to the west are the four towers' names.

That's him. But his name is actually Paul Kearney.
The Monarchies of God is recommended to Martin fans who like Martin for realism, grittiness and focus on politics and battles. Good series.

Whoops -- well. Paul, John, tough to remember when they're always filed by last name anyway.

So, nobody knows about the Compass Point Towers?

An additional hint, then, just to be sure.
The protagonists are Arithon and Lysaer, and are half-brothers.

Anyone?

Oh, and I've actually found a copy of Hawkwing's Voyage, now, which is getting added to my reading queue. I'll see if it's as good as your recommendation. (:

The Wars of Light and Shadow Series by Janny Wurts... i don't like this series, i read only the first book and i must say it was one of the worst fantasy books i read.
It's almost half as bad as Goodkind.

Anyway, character: Mara of the Acoma
It isn't supposed to be hard.

Really, you didn't like it? I thought it was quite good, actually, and have been trying to get ahold of the second book.

I'll give someone else a shot at yours, to keep from making this thread a private contest for the two of us. (:

Oh, right. Well then, that's from the Empire trilogy by Janny Wurtz and Raymond Feist.

Having a hard time thinking of something new just now. How about Shivetya, maybe we haven't had him, yet. Go for it (:

Judging from your answer.. googling suspected.
But anyway, the answer to your question is the Dragonlance Series.

My question, Character: James Asher.

The Nights Dawn Trilogy, by Peter F. Hamilton. I am only on book 5 .

Character: Han Tzu (could be Hans or Hanz, but I am pretty sure it is Han)


You only truly lose when winning becomes more important than playing.
