Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist Reviews Lest Our Passage Be Forgotten
I often say that in terms of style, Bradley P. Beaulieu’s is some sort of hybrid between Steven Erikson and L. E. Modesitt, Jr. From time to time, he also shows a deft human touch that reminds me of Robin Hobb. In addition, the author’s darker and brooding narrative can at times be reminescent of Stephen R. Donaldson. In terms of characterization and magical system, don’t expect black-and-white protagonists and flashy bells and whistles. No, Beaulieu’s approach is very similar to that of Modesitt. His cast of characters may not be the most flamboyant group of men and women, yet they are nevertheless solid, genuine, and three-dimensional protagonists that remain true to themselves. He writes adult fantasy that will probably not appeal that much to teenagers.
