Fantasy

Swords and Sorcery, Melee and Mages, Hobbits and Horcruxes, I thoroughly enjoy fantasy fiction of all varieties.

Below is an in-exhaustive list of fantasy novel series I’ve read and enjoyed:

  • Age of Fire: A traditional fantasy world from the point of view of the persecuted dragons.
  • Chronicles of the Raven: Dirty dozen meets medieval fantasy.
  • Codex Alera: It’s like Pokemon meets the Roman Empire!
  • Crescent Moon Kingdoms: Described as Lord of the Rings meets Arabian Nights.
  • Deathgate
  • Dragonlance: Romantic fantasy, among the first fantasy series I’ve ever read.
  • Earthsea: The tale of Ged, from Gontish goat herder to archmage of all the archipelago.
  • Elantris
  • Harry Potter
  • Kingkiller Chronicle: The legend of Kvothe, as told by Patrick Rothfuss. A true gem of a read.
  • Mistborn
  • Sovereign Stone
  • Stormlight Archive: A novel series by Brandon Sanderson that is set in a truly fantastic world, where among other things, plants have independent movement.
  • Warbreaker
  • Warhammer Fantasy: A series of dark fantasy novels, probably best known for the Gotrek and Felix series begun by author William King.
  • Wheel of Time

Below is an incomplete list of fantasy movies I’ve watched and enjoyed:

  • Inception: A mind-blowing movie about reality and perception.
  • The Lord of the Rings: True to the spirit of Tolkien and highly riveting to watch.
  • Snow White and the Huntsman: I got this movie through Netflix just because the preview visuals looked stunning, but was surprised by how entertaining the actual story was.
