And so I would like to know what fantasy books nerfighters recommend!
It can be anything at all, in terms of fantasy. Vampire, werewolf, faery, plain ol' magic.
The particular sub-category matters not.
Faerie. and Vampire. and magic. neil gaiman did a book called m is for magic that was wonderful. and o.r. melling did amazing fantasy books. i have been reading lots of great vampire stories lately (thanks to all the nfs who posted on my vampire books thread!) that can here http://nerdfighters.ning.com/forum/topics/looking-for-vampire
That's so true ! After all, he's the one who wrote "Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life."
I would also recommend the whole work of Robin Hobb ! You can begin with the fareseer's trilogy (but I warn you, once you start, it's impossible to stop reading !)
