I just finished reading this series called "The Keepers" (link attached) it was totally epic, might have been one of the best series I've read in the past 2 years. The only thing I could compare it to was Enders Game/Shadow meets Game Of Thrones (which I could not stop reading books 1-4 for a month straight). I seriously recommend it to anybody looking for a new Sci-Fi genre and series to read...
...Now that I'm done with it though, I'm going through some MEGA WITHDRAWAL and I NEED A NEW SERIES TO READ!
Does anyone out there know of something with creative twists, not afraid to kill main characters, edge of your seat thrill ride, Sci-Fi space or medieval themed? I've already read:
All Neal Stephenson
Game of Thrones
All Philip K. Dick
All William Gibson
(Ashamed to admit it) Harry Potter
And a bunch of others.
I feel like I'm missing some new epic Sci-Fi series out there and I need to get my hands on something amazing! And something NEW!!! The Keepers was awesome cause it was new and dealt with stuff that is going on now with the latest advances in science. Game of Thrones was awesome, because the character development was insanely good and I could never tell what direction he was going to go. I really like that. Anything super high tech mixed with human condition, apocolypse, the hero's journey, and a good father/son story would be greatly appreciated. (No Star Wars recommendations please, though I love Star Wars, there is only so much SW novels I can read.)
Any suggestions? I'd really love to hear some.
Thanks for anyone's time who read this. I really appreciate it. I hope you can give me some good suggestions and alter my life through a mind bending book.
And here is the link for "The Keepers" the last book series I read. I guess it's on sale now (goes to show my crappy luck, I paid full price. Still worth it)
The Keepers Part 1: World War III
