The Coldfire Trilogy was by far one of my favorite series, many years ago.... well, not that many years compared to some of you. It is, however, one of my earliest memories of reading a dark fantasy that didn't have the bright overtones found in the Lord of the Rings and other such drivel. I became instantly and deeply enchanted by the ambivilantly evil protagonist and have since always had a soft spot for vilains of every sort. With that in mind, I set out to reread the series and see if it still holds the same depth and darkness that mezmerized me on my first go-round. So far, I am halfway through Black Sun Rising, and could not be more please. If I had to complain about anything, it would be a slightly sluggish pace compared to some of the more recent fantasy novels I have read, but times have changed and so have the authors. Have you read The Coldfire Trilogy?
