I've been going through and reading all the Dark Hunter books by Sherrilyn Kenyon for the second (okay some third, fourth or...you get the idea) time and again I'm amazed at her incredible ability to world-build. Its fascinating. I admire her and so many other authors for their ability to create a whole world where everything matches up book after book after book. How she can add one tiny detail in that you don't realize could even be important and then books later its actual a major detail in the series and you get that AH HA moment of clarity. Love that. When I look at how something seemingly so small can turn out to be something so much bigger five books later or how an author can know an entire series before hand, know exactly what to do in each book to get the series where it needs to go I'm enamored. Its a special talent and one that keeps me coming back again and again, rushing to the bookstore each time a new book is released.
Who are some of the author that amaze you with their ability to world-build book after book?
