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.
- 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.
- Harry Potter
- Kingkiller Chronicle: The legend of Kvothe, as told by Patrick Rothfuss. A true gem of a read.
- 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.
- 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.
