Has anyone else read these books?
Me and my girlfriend both absolutely loved them, so we're now looking for some similar books to dig in to!
Any suggestions?
Cheers guys!

Read them and loved them! His newish book prism is on my to read pile. Not sure what else you like to read or what you liked about them so hard to suggest things, but the is a good website called fantastic fiction that shows books the author recommends and a list of authors you may want to check out. Of the ones listed trudi caravan, George r r Martin and R. Feist are all good

Sorry for not replying!
I've read some of Trudi Canavan's books, they were brilliant too! I've got Black Prism sat on my book shelf, but I'm wondering if it'll just be frustrating to start reading then have to wait for the next one

I'll go and check out that website now though!

Well I liked Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen by Garth Nix
Banned and the banished series by James Clemens
Swords of night and day by David Gemmel
Dune by Frank Herbert
Orcs: Bodyguard of Lightning, Legion of Thunder, Warriors of the Tempest by Stan Nicholls
I'm also tempted to give the wheel of time a go (I've read New Spring and quite liked it).

I have dozens of books back home but not many with me

george r r martin i still would recommend, and his series has just been made into a tv series on sky atlantic
his books are gritty and the twists and turns will keep you hooked, but be prepared because he doesn't write short books, one had to be split in two as it was so huge :eek:

I would also suggest George R. R. Martin. I love his books, can't wait for the next one to be released. There's also The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, and The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.

I've read this so many times. :love:


Check out Game of Thrones G R R Martin (I read it before the HBO series came out), There's 4 or 5 books after the Game of Thrones, truly fantastic series you'll love it.

Assassin's Apprentice Robin Hobb - Amaaaaazing! Book 1 of 3 in the Farseer trilogy (Or book 1 of 9 if you add the next two trilogies, which all connect).

It saddens me that Clemens hasn't finished his latest series.

This series is good.
