AuthorDavid Eddings

It all begins with the theft of the Orb that for so long protected the West from an evil god. As long as the Orb was at Riva, the prophecy went, its people would be safe from this corrupting power. Garion, a simple farm boy, is familiar with the legend of the Orb, but skeptical in matters of magic. Until, through...
The Night Angel Trilogy
AuthorBrent Weeks
It takes a special kind of author to write three books and have them sold consecutively on a monthly basis… Typically a fantasy trilogy will take between three and four years from the first through until the last book is released. This allows time for readers to finish a book, have a bit of a change and...

AuthorR.A. Salvatore
ISBN0786915889
At first I berated myself for lumping the whole trilogy together before I would give my review; however, after finishing Sojourn, I am glad that I held my review until I got the perspective of all three books.

In a word: fantastic.

At first, I was unimpressed with Homeland, not liking...
The Earthsea Trilogy
AuthorUrsula K. Le Guin
ISBN0140050930
As long ago as forever and as far away as Selidor, there lived the dragonlord and Archmage, Sparrowhawk, the greatest of the great wizards - he who, when still a youth, met with the evil shadow-beast; he who later brought back the Ring of Erreth-Akbe from the Tombs of Atuan; and he who, as an old man, rode...
The Great Book of Amber
AuthorRoger Zelazny
ISBN0380809060
I adore this series. I have read and re-read this book since high school. What can I say? It captured my imagination and has kept ahold of it for years. This was the work that Zelazny worked on through his career. I think it is what he wrote for fun. It isn't complicated but it is epic.

Imagine that...

Eragon, Eldest & Brisingr
AuthorChristopher Paolini
ISBN0375846158
This was probably the only series I ever read that could compete (and possibly beat) the Harry Potter series! I read the whole series in less than a week and there are a lot of pages all together. My favorite one is Brisingr but you have to read the whole series, start to finish, to understand what's going...
AuthorRaymond E. Feist
ISBN0553333240
Here is a fantasy series filled with tropes... but it worked, nicely. It falls somewhere in-between what I'd consider 'High Fantasy' and 'contemporary fantasy'. If you're looking for some zany type fantasy world that you hadn't imagined, I wouldn't suggest this series. But if you like your dwarves...
AuthorTerry Goodkind
ISBN0312875037
The first two books in this series were great, as was Faith of the Fallen, book six. Books 3-5 were mediocre in plot and impact, and everything after Faith of the Fallen, books 7-end, were absolutely horrendous, and showed just what a terrible thing it can be for someone to take Ayn Rand too seriously. While...
