Gregory Keyes is a writer of science fiction and fantasy who has written both original and media-related novels under both the names "J. Gregory Keyes" and "Greg Keyes". He is famous for his quartet The Age of Unreason, a steampunk/alchemical story starring Benjamin Franklin and Isaac Newton. He wrote the Babylon 5 Psi Corps trilogy, a history of the Psi Corps and a biography of Psi Corps member Alfred Bester.


In 2003 he began a fantasy series titled The Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone, the first volume of which was The Briar King. The second book in the series The Charnel Prince was published in 2004 and the third, The Blood Knight, was published in July 2006. His fourth and final book of the quartet, The Born Queen, was released in March 2008.


In 2009 it was announced that Keyes would be writing two novels based on the successful computer game Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion. The first of these, The Infernal City, is set to be published by Random House in Fall 2009.[1]


Keyes was born on 11 April 1963 in Meridian, Mississippi, to a large, diverse, storytelling family. He received degrees in anthropology from Mississippi State University and the University of Georgia before becoming a full time writer. He lives and fences in Savannah, Georgia. Greg is also the head coach of the Savannah College of Art and Design's fencing club.


Τώρα κάθομαι και διαβάζω το τελευταίο βιβλίο της σειράς Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone, το The Born Queen. H σειρά αρχίζει σαν ένα πιο light Song Of Ice and Fire, με την βασιλική οικογένεια της Crotheny να ξεκληρίζεται από μια συνωμοσία ενώ αρχαία τέρατα ξυπνάνε στα δάση και ένας δασοφύλακας αγωνίζεται να αντιμετωπίσει την απειλή τους.

Κάπου ανάμεσα όμως η σειρά αλλάζει και σε τόνο και σε περιεχόμενο. Ένας πόλεμος πριν από χιλιετίες με μια άλλη φυλή, τους Skasloi, που είχαν σκλάβους τους τους ανθρώπους παίζει πολύ σημαντικό ρόλο. Η εκκλησία και οι άγιοί της παίζουν επίσης έναν σοβαρό, αν και σκοτεινό, ρόλο. Η μαγεία έχει πολύ χαρακτηριστικό ύφος και στηρίζεται σε μια ενδιαφέρουσα ιδέα (προσκυνητές ταξιδεύουν σε τόπους που έχουν αγγίξει οι αγίοι και παίρνουν δυνάμεις από αυτούς) ενώ ο ρυθμός είναι γρήγορος με έξυπνα cliffhangers και δύσκολα τα βιβλία αφήνουν τον αναγνώστη να βαρεθεί.
