If you are a new or old-fictional reader, you may be wondering
what the top fantasy books are. This is a fair question. If you are a beginner
in the genre then it is popular what starts. Or perhaps you are curious to see
how mainstream your priorities are.
But in trying to answer this question, you will immediately run
into problems. How do we determine what is a top fantasy book? Sale? Let’s be
honest Some bestselling books may not be good. We can use ratings but as Reoter
Tasha discovered when he looked at the highest-rated books on Goodreads,
reader-generated rankings and lists lead to other problems. The actual number
of ratings can be very low. A book with a higher rating may raise a lower
rating more because of a greater reader rating. Many excellent series populate
the fantasy genre, and the longer the series, the more readers are likely to
find the first book. There is also no denying that some writers dominate the
genre. And if those authors are to be prolific, their books are being given
high status due to their extreme fan following.

winter is coming. The stern motto is House Stark, which pledges
allegiance to King Baratheon who is far-fetched in King’s Landing to King
Robert Baratheon. Robert’s name is Eddard Stark of the Winterfell Rules. There
his family lives in peace and comfort: his arrogant wife, Kellyanne; His sons
Rob, Brandon and Ricken; His daughters Sansa and Arya; And his bastard son, Jon
Snow. To the north, behind the huge wall, savory wailing and lies – unnatural

all real and all fatal in the turning of the season.

his son, the cruel, vicious prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and

good writing certainly allows the fantasy genre, it is not necessarily a
necessity. Above all, we want a good story and as long as the prose is
readable, fine. The first novel by Rothfuss showed us that an epic fantasy
novel can not only do good writing, it can showcase beautiful prose. But the
most interesting thing about The Name of the Wind is its structure. When we are
a broken man after a fight, we meet Quoth for the first time. The mystery of
how he got to that last point from his debut as an audacious prodigy is part of
the series’ charm.
Lighted is a world of stones and storms. Incredible electric
brooms in rocky terrain so often that they have given shape to ecology and
civilization. The animals hide in the shells, the trees pull in the branches,
and the grass retreats into the earthen mound. Cities are built where the
topography provides shelter.
It has been around for
centuries since the fall of the Ten Ascended Orders known as the Knights, but
their shardsblade and sharplat remain: mysterious swords and armor suits that
turn ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. The men trade states for Shardbeld.
Wars were fought for them and won by them.
Such a war is called a shattered ground on a ruined landscape.
There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect
his younger brother, was reduced to slavery. In a battle that makes no sense,
where ten armies fight separately against the same enemy, she struggles to save
her men and to pat the leaders who consider her expendable.
Brightlord Dalinar Kholin
commanded one of those other armies. Like his brother, the late king, he was
fascinated by an ancient text called The Way of Kings. Troubled by the immense
power of the knights and knights of ancient times, they have begun to doubt
their own holiness.

words of power, took the name of an ancient dragon, and crossed the threshold
of death to restore balance.
to confess: I first discovered Legwyn through my science fiction. Until I was in
adulthood, I didn’t even think that she had written fiction either.
Unfortunately, the Earthsea series is probably best known for the whitewash
adaptation that aired on the SyFy channel. A true tragedy because anyone who
has read his books knows that Leggin was adept at depicting world-building and

it again.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The
Name of the Wind
“A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . .

Dickens.”—Booklist (starred review)
