Top Current Epic Fantasy Novels

Amazon.com sent me list of their best-selling titles (see below). I thought we could springboard on it and see who is reading what. Are you reading any of these novels? What is the best epic fantasy novel that you have read in the last few months?

I am particularly interested in Terry Goodkind. I enjoyed watching Legend of the Seeker on TV, but never got into the Sword of Truth – his first novel. Have you been reading his books? Let me know.

Have a great weekend,

Alon

    I’ve read the Terry Goodkind books – but it was a very long time ago! I thought the TV thing was awful! Unlike the Game of Thrones adaptation which I really love. I’m reading the GRR Martin series now but hadn’t heard of a graphic novel of the same – perhaps unsurprising as they’re not my cup of tea. I’ve never read Jordan – have seen them in the bokshops but there’s just so damn many of them! Odd thing to turned off by, hey? Have to admit to being ignorant of the others on the list – but I’m itching to check them out.

    Discovery of Witches is on my radar; and as a book merchandiser, I put The Wise Man’s Fear up on the shelf the other day, and was intrigued, but I don’t remember ever seeing the 1st book in the series. I would read either of these. The Game of Thrones series is doing rather well in my stores, but I’m not sure if it’s all that appealing to me personally.
