Epic Fantasy is still not dead!

A guide by Marylin James

Products sampled from this guide:
Once authors wrote epic fantasy, huge stories with multiple characters, many plot lines and intertwining destinies all woven into one, marvelous tapestry. Today, alas, authors choose to write simple, linear stories, with no real challenge to the reader.

What makes epic fantasy one of the most enjoyable kind of books? Their sheer size and complexity create stories a reader can really immerse himself (or herself) inside. These stories are made to last and to leave a strong impression, rouse the reader's emotions. And isn't this why we all read books?

Dragon Over Washington (The Third War Of The Bir Nibaru Gods Book 1)
Dragon Over Washington is a fine example of an Epic Fantasy book. A lot of plot lines, a lot of interesting characters, a lot of changes and evolution in the story, an sinister plot that runs beneath the main plots like an underground stream. Dragon Over Washington is one of the best Epic Fantasy books I've ever read.
