Then Henry Cavill explains about the authors. He says, “They all are different in their different ways. Raymond E Feist is a massive world with all sorts of interconnecting stories. So that is a really fun one to get into because then you have got years of reading. David Gemmell [gives] some interconnected worlds but more separated. David Gemmell is one of the original greats. There is an award named after him.

Henry praises author Brandon Sanderson by elaborating his works. He said, “Brandon Sanderson has done an incredible job with the Stormlight archive. That is really really wonderful. So people looking for a good readout there with some beautiful messaging as well and an entirely unique fantasy world. He has created his own thing with his own rules and that is not easy to do. Talking kind of set template and everyone’s been sort of using that for a while. Sanderson has done a brilliant job, absolutely brilliant.”
