Okay, I picked up a couple of his books from the library..Jack of Ravens and The Burning Man, without realising they contain characters from previous books...should I go back and read these books first or do they stand alone themselves?

Are they any good?

Haven't read Jack of Ravens or The Burning Man, but I can tell you that the Age of Misrule trilogy (which you can now get in one collected paperback) is a really good read and I'd recommend investing in them; they're quite epic fantasy novels, but with a modern twist, and they're very character-driven, which I found refreshing at the time. So yeah, I say go for it.

I would definately recommend them.  I've been a big fan of Mark Chadbourn for about 7 years now.  I would recommend going back and starting from the Age of Misrule trilogy; as was mentioned, it comes in one paperback so it's inexpensive to buy and I would say it's worth it as I think you'll appreciate what happens in the last trilogy more if you've started from the beginning.  The character and story arcs of the whole series of nine books is phemonenal and so detailed and unpredictable that while you could pick up the books from any trilogy and read them stand alone,  it's far more rewarding to start at the beginning.  I reckon if you started with Jack of Ravens and enjoyed it, you'd kick yourself for not reading the first two trilogies first.  Hope that helps!

tried my hardest but couldnt get into them...the problem is i've kind of gone off the fantasy/horror genre at the moment...I go through stages where i read loads of books of the same genre in a period of time, as I'm sure others do too. I'm at crime fiction just now, so I reckon I'll maybe give the books a try another time, but start from the beginning.
