Any Fantasy literature fans in the house? I’m fairly new to the genre, but have been greatly enjoying the couple of series I’ve read so far. This morning, I’m hoping to finish #3 of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series, which has been fantastic thus far.


@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!

@erik @mattwiebe OH!!! Dr Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. It’s about 19th Century England rediscovering magic during the Napoleonic wars. Great fantasy read.

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.

@Zakalwe @erik Yes, Clarke’s book is wonderful. Pity she hasn’t done much since. Archangel sounds interesting.
