    July: What Fantasy Book Are You Reading

    Farm boy grows up and all of a sudden learns magic to defeat the evil one. That pretty freaking cliche', granted its done better than most, but it still cliche'. The main reason I didn't like a lot of the books it the ungodly amount of unnecessary scenes with women bitching about weather...

    Which should I read next?

    Malazan, Mistborn, Dresden, Kingdom of Thorne n Bone, and Furies of Calderon are all great choices. If you try rereading Malazan, just keep pushing on. Once you get into the groove, you get totally blown away. Dresden is a great series, too. I was hesitant about it becase of the whole...

    July: What Fantasy Book Are You Reading

    Forget WOT. Its great for like 6 books and the rest suck. Don't get me wrong, its a great series overall, but there are so many other ones out there that are much better. Malazan, Dresden, Codex of Aleria, Mistborn, First Law: take your pick.

    Book Tournament - Quarter Finals

    Forget WOT. The first 6 books are good, but after that they blow. They are worth reading, but not before Malazan.

    Your suggestions for the Top 25 Fantasy Books List

    I actually read the whole series and like it at the time. Now that I've read more (and much better) fantasy, I realize that it is lacking in many things. My fav. book of the series was actually Temple of the Wind which most people thought sucked. But anyway, I don't think it deserves the top...
