Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great come back for great series! This is by far the most underrated fantasy series of all times. I'm more of a science fiction reader but when my bf introduced me to R Bakkers trilogy my perspective on fantasy changed completely. This is Fantasy for grown ups, emotionally powerful and compelling lines portray the author's craft of using an anthropological base into literary art, a perfect mix of magic and reason. Series recommended for those hardcore fantasy followers out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected... Once you start reading Scott Bakker, other fantasy books seem repetitive and full of cliches... i've been hooked on fantasy since my mom got me the Hobbit for Christmas 15 years ago but this is something else. if you have time to waste and a few bucks to spare go get all the books: Darkness that comes Before, Warrior Prophet, Thousandfold Thought and Judging are in for a ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW ! The author brings more of the intense, one of a kind tales of Earwaa, for those who don't know yet, The Judging Eye is sequel to the acclaimed trilogy Prince of Nothing. Scott Bakkers Ph. D in philosophy reflects a lot on his books, especially in this series where we find a world with its own religion, mythology, cultural and social currents like never seen before. The most incredible feature though are the characters, they are so well developed you cant help but feel big empathy for them; i find myself often cheering laughing and crying with them along the story. This new addition to the series is equally entrancing, went through the whole thing in less than 4 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding continuation to the Prince of Nothing Trilogy When i read Bakker's "Prince of Nothing" trilogy i was mind blown, it redefined my idea of fantasy books, the astonishing uniqueness of its universe and the characters' depth marveled me so much i found myself feeling sad by the end of the third book knowing it'd be the last one; However, i was baffled to find the trilogy's ending very inconclusive. Of course my disappointed ended two weeks ago when i saw "the Judging Eye" on the Fantasy shelf, realization hit me like a train, i was so happy i started hopping around and cheering aloud, the best fantasy story ever continues! Scott Bakker comes back strong with "the Judging Eye" tying loose ends from Prince of Nothing, his highly psychological and philosophical fantasy style is as captivating as always, needless to say, if you are Bakker's Fan Go get a copy now!!! (Akka is back!!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the time This is the first book I've read by this author, and I am disappointed. It is convoluted, and extremely hard to get into. Not worth the time it takes to read.
