I recently mentioned that I’ve been reading some of the most popular fantasy series. I didn’t make it through The Sword of Shannara trilogy, but I really enjoyed the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. The Earthsea Cycle was pretty good. The Kingkiller Chronicle was unique, but I didn’t enjoy as much as I was supposed to. I liked the The Way of Kings, also by Brandon Sanderson, but the books in that series are really long and I haven’t yet found the time to read the next one. Finally, I just read The Black Prism, by Brent Weeks, which I enjoyed, and I’m sure I’ll continue the series at some point, though I prefer Sanderson. Anyway, that concludes a whirlwind tour of my experience so far with fantasy novels.
