    Fantasy races

    A question for your inner child! What fantasy race and why? For me it's definitely dwarves/dwarfs depending on what you read. I love them, tough, good with their hands, awesome looking in armour, love battle and a drink!

    Riftwar Saga

    I am on the first book (60%), not sure how the series is going to go because I have seen it has many many books in it. But I think Magician is brilliant!
