FantasyBookCritic was kind enough to publish a guest post I wrote about The King’s Sword called The Different Facets of Fantasy.
I don’t really consider the book epic fantasy. To me, epic fantasy is concerned with world-shaking events, the titanic struggle of good and evil, generally with huge armies on each side. This story was more personal, about two men and the choices they make.

If you’ve read The King’s Sword, how would you classify it? High Fantasy? Epic Fantasy? Character-driven fantasy? I’m not really sure myself.
What other genre-crossing books have you enjoyed?
