A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
"A gritty, compelling 1st book of an epic series that achieves a level of brilliance with its detail and handling of very complex themes. Warning: the author plays for keeps."
A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2)
A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2)
"The second book of A Song of Ice and Fire. The level of quality is maintained--an amazing feat in itself. Tyrion is one of the best characters I've seen in a long while."
A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3)
A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3)
"The wars of Westeros continue. Martin has created a broad tapestry of interesting characters. Both triumphs and sorrows are expertly displayed in this series."
A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4)
A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4)
"Not as tight, plot wise. Some favorite characters are missing entirely. A slight step down when compared to the first three, but still a must-read."
A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5)
A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5)

Ship of Magic (The Liveship Traders, Book 1)
Ship of Magic (The Liveship Traders, Book 1)
"Consistently interesting world building. The Liveships are a great creation. This series captures the experience of life at sea better than any other fantasy series that readily comes to mind."
Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1)

"This is an excellent series--a classic that is unfortunately not as widely known as it should be."
The Wheel of Time, Boxed Set I, Books 1-3: The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn
The Wheel of Time, Boxed Set I, Books 1-3: The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn
"Sigh. Robert Jordan. For all its many flaws, this is still a classic series. Hopefully the final book will bring back the magic of the first four or five books. Just beware if you want to read all the books back-to-back: there is a lot of repetition, braid-tugging, and other annoying antics."
