@erik recommendations I haven’t seen mentioned:
* The Passage by Justin Cronin
* anything by Octavia Butler (just read her Xenogenesis series)
* The Magicians by Lev Grossman
* Divine Cities trilogy by Robert Jackson Bennett
* Red Rising by Pierce Brown (leans a bit YA but solid)
* The Dark Tower by Stephen King
* Malazan series by Steven Erickson (beware: 10 long books)
Ok I’ll stop now. Some of those are sci-fi but I see it as interchangeable with fantasy (technology = magic).
@mattwiebe Wow, so many great ideas in this thread! Thanks team!
And then, Sharon Shinn writes a series of books beginning with one called Archangel. Humanity on a different planet, but there are angels that sing to control weather, crops, etc.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
