Markus Heitz studied history and German language and literature before writing his debut novel, Schatten uber Ulldart (Shadows over Ulldart, the first in a series of epic fantasy novels), which won the Deutscher Phantastik Preis (Germany's premier literary award for fantasy) in 2003. Since then he has frequently topped the bestseller charts, and his Number One bestselling Dwarves and Aelfar series have earned him a place among Germany's most successful fantasy authors. The DOORS series, where each book follows the adventurers as they choose a different door, have earned him a whole new audience as he plays with fantasy, thriller and mystery tropes to keep the reader always interested. He currently lives in Saarland, in Germany.
A great example of action-oriented and unfussy quest literature. Highly recommended. * SF Crowsnest on The Dwarves * Just as talented musicians can create a myriad symphonies with only 12 musical notes,?Heitz?demonstrates how talented writers are able to create greatly enjoyable stories based only a few basic, well known concepts * Speculative Book Review on Markus Heitz * You always know what to expect from Markus Heitz.
