Modern Masters: Fade to Black by Francis Knight *note start time change

  • Mar 28, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This group meets on the 4th Friday of each month to discuss various works of "modern" masters or upcoming talent in SF, fantasy, paranormal, horror and related genres. It also occasionally explores classics and the 'masters' of the classics.

*Modern Masters returns to its original 8pm start time.  Discussion begins at 8pm.

*There is an optional pre-meeting dinner from 7 - 8pm for those who would like to arrive early, grab some food and chat before the discussion.

From the depths of a valley rises the city of Mahala.

It’s a city built upwards, not across—where streets are built upon streets, buildings upon buildings. A city that the Ministry rules from the sunlit summit, and where the forsaken lurk in the darkness of Under.

Rojan Dizon doesn’t mind staying in the shadows, because he’s got things to hide. Things like being a pain-mage, with the forbidden power to draw magic from pain. But he can’t hide for ever.

Because when Rojan stumbles upon the secrets lurking in the depths of the Pit, the fate of Mahala will depend on him using his magic. And unlucky for Rojan—this is going to hurt.

    Really great discussion about this book written by a woman hiding behind a man's name (makes for the whiny main character - hand him a pacifier!). Forgot to ask when "Fade to Giggles" comes out, dangnabbit! I could be a tickle mage...

    Todd led a lively discussion that was entertaining and thorough. The average grade attendees gave Fade to Black was a B. Well developed characters, some good twists and a surprise ending. We also learned to avoid spoiled milk.
