He's a rather dark writer who enjoys grinding his characters down to see what's underneath, forcing them into incredibly vital situations when they're not at their best, and making them second-guess themselves and everything that they thought they knew. He also really likes putting a philosophical touch to the narrative, and seems to like getting meta about storytelling itself. For all that, his novels aren't without some trace of hope and light, although the surviving heroes are always incredibly weary by the time they're over.
