Kushiel's Dart
Kushiel's Dart

Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1)
Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1)
"The Farseer Trilogy is a great story.  It's as simple as that.  I recommend this series to anyone, not just fans of the fantasy genre."

The Black Jewels: Trilogy: Daughter of the Blood / Heir to the Shadows / Queen of the Darkness
"Why doesn't this book appear on more reading lists?  A very creative and sexual fantasy story that is fully realized.  This book along with others on my list are not for the faint of heart."
Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth)
Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth)
"This is the first book in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind and it introduces the main character, Richard Cypher.  The book is about good vs. evil in a world that includes some magic.  I liked this series as much as Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series."
The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1)
The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1)
"I put off reading this series for a long time but finally just finished reading books 1-11 all in a row.  Not the BEST fantasy but still quite good.  Clearly it sucked me in!"
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1)
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1)
"I got caught up in this story of a young boy and his quest for knowledge and belonging.  I've read scathing reviews of the book. I agree that the dialog can be stilted and the main character, Quothe is fantastically, absurdly talented.  Even so, it was an engrossing story to read with elements of magic, the supernatural, music, friendship and love."
A Wizard of Earthsea (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 1)
A Wizard of Earthsea (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 1)
"Quick, fun read, leaves you wanting more -- luckily there are two more books in this trilogy.  The second book in the series is wildily creative."
