My favorite fanatsy novel of 2012 was Brent Weeks' second book of his Lightbringer Serie: the Blinding Knife. I love the world he created, his main characters and the story. Can't wait until Weeks published his next book, Blood Mirror, in 2014. So long to wait. You (GRRM), Weeks and Abercrombie are my favorite authors at the moment and all three won't publish any new books in 2013. That's so unfair. ;-) I hope that at least Scott Lynch will publish his new book of the Gentleman Bastard Series this year.
