I got to thinking about this recently. Almost every fantasy book has 'battles,' but a lot of them are pretty throwaway, both narratively and in their execution. A great deal of fantasy is not really 'about' the fighting, so much as the journey the characters take, and the worlds they explore, or even the thoughts they have. But what have you read that actually had GOOD action scenes? The kind you might be able to picture playing out cinematically? The kind that kept you turning the pages? Feel free to describe why you liked it, if you want. I can think of a lot of great fantasy that I love, but not really that many with well-done battles. Not even in 'Sword and Sorcery' stories, which seemingly more than any other subgenre should be ABOUT the battles. I was originally going to call this 'best fight scenes,' but I figure it might be easier to get answers if it expands to army vs. army or hero squad vs. monster horde as well. Whatever sticks out to you as particularly well-done or engrossing.
