  1. Need a new book series.

    I've cut back on WoW and been playing console games and reading alot and i've gone through all my authors. Looking for some suggestions. Here's the main list of authors I have read a good amount from.


    George RR Martin - Song of Ice & Fire

    Robert Jordan- Wheel of Time

    Terry Goodkind- Sword of Truth

    Robin Hobb- Assassins, and other trilogies

    David Farland- Runelords

    Raymond Feist- pretty much all

    Sarah Ash

    Steven Pressfield- historical fiction, if you liked 300 his book Gates of Fire is Amazing.

    I've read alot of others including Salvatore, Weis, Hickman and more than i care to list. Toss me some ideas please.

    The last two series I read:

    Mark Anthony - The Last Rune (Books 1-6)

    Laurell K. Hamilton - Anita Blake Vampire Hunter (Books 1-14 with #15 out this June)

    The first series lends itself towards the more traditional fantasy storyline. The second is a modern storyline dealing with vampires, werewolves, and other assorted preternatural things. I highly recommend both series.

    Sarah Douglas just release the last book of her series on paperback. (The Wayfarrer Redemption)

    David Eddings has like 30 books out. 15 or so of these are put into a couple series but most tie in together with a couple points.

    Margret Wies has a awesome series call the DeathGate Cycle.

    Janny Wurts: The Wars of Light and Shadow and the Alliance of Light series are very good, as is the Cycle of Fire series.

    I've read Douglas' books as well as Eddings. Also read Deathgates cycle from Weis and Cornwells Warlord series which was amazing.

    David Gemmell is my fave, a few of his best books are...

    Legend- required reading of his, should start with this one, it's part of the Drenai Saga which overall is a great series.

    The King Beyond the Gate - another great book, one of my faves, part of the Drenai Saga

    Waylander - again from the Drenai Saga, this is were I got Dreamender from

    Knights of Dark Renown - My fave outta all his books, this is one of his stand alones

    Sword in the Storm - Good good book, very hard to put down, part of the Rigante series

    Midnight Falcon - fallow up to Sword in the Storm

    Echoes of the Great Song - this book has one of my favorite characters in it... long read, good all around

    .... He has about 20 more books out there, some of which are only in England... check him out.

    Re: Need a new book series.

    I see we read pretty much the same stuff.

    A real classic you left out is Richard A. Knaak's DragonRealm series, this is a must read but its old,
