    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Read ‘The Way of Cross and Dragon’ and found it enjoyable. It’s easy to see this is the same man who wrong GoT but the form and substance seems quite different from there. It seems like the characters are a little underdeveloped in just dumping you into the situation, ie what is the church the main character represents. But, the main premises of the story are engaging, compelling, and thought-provoking, even if I don’t agree with the position it seems to occupy. Worth reading and would read agai Read ‘The Way of Cross and Dragon’ and found it enjoyable.

    There were a few good stories and several I really didn't like at all. Overall disappointing due to the large sections where the author told us about what was going on in his personal life while writing various stories.
