  • I just picked up Forgotten Realms Neverwinter book 2. If any of you are familiar with the character Drizzt Do' Urden, this book will not disappoint This character's storyline has been going on since 1988. I've read every single book in the series and highly recommend it to any fantasy reader. R.A Salvatore is the writer and he has a way of putting you in the battles and stories of the characters. One of my favorite writers.

  • Familiar with Drizzt, but never actually read any of his stories. I think I remember playing as him in a few fantasy games over the years.

    Currently, non-comic-wise......... I'm reading Flight of the Nighthawks by Raymond E Feist and Star Trek/X-Men

    After I've finished those, I have 4 more Raymond E Feist books and an Artemis Fowl one to read...

    After those.............. I'll probably move onto a Neil Gaiman novel, and the complete Sherlock Holmes is also waiting for me.... as well as about 2 dozen other books that I haven't had a chance to get to because of study. My final exam in on Thursday so I'll be FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE to read more for leisure.
    Currently Reading:
    Graphic Novels: Nightwing (90s series), Lumberjanes
    Regular Novels: Chronicles of Prydain

  • just started the George R.R. Martin books starting with "A Game of Thorns". many have called his works some of the best fantasy that has ever been written and claiming him to be the next Tolkien. so far so good...

  • Reading "The Blood" by Luis R. Garcia. His second book and this one is great, reminds me of Tom Clancy.

    Incidentally he is a family friend and my attorney. Think

    The first three books are fantastic, but I'm waiting until he finishes all of the books before reading any more. I can't wait 5-6 years between novels. I don't know if he'll ever finish this saga, hopefully it's not another Robert Jordan.

    I used to read about a novel a week, but now it's down to maybe a novel a month. But I read a lot of books, mostly fantasty/sci-fi and horror. Just finished Stephen King's "11/22/63", I collect/read all of King's stuff. Book wasn't bad, but as usual with current King, it was about 200 pages too long.

    I STRONGLY recommend Joe Abercrombie's "First Law" series if you like fantasy. He takes the typical fantasy cliches and turns them on their head. I find myself almost wanting to reread these books and that hardly ever happens.

    There are 3 books but if I remember right you can stop after any. Then he wrote a stand-alone in the same world, and now another stand-alone is out.
