Fantasy Books

These are a list of books that are the crème de la crème of the fantasy genre. When it comes to the best fantasy books of all time, there's much more to it than dragons and evil witches: come and see us. An optional list of the best fantasy book series of all time, arranged by the readers of Fantasy Fiction. We have a golden age for fantasy fiction, says Lev Grossman. It tells us who defines the future not only of fantasy, but of fiction as a whole.

Whilst there were fantastic tales even before the words were spelled, they have become fashionable over the course of the story. However, the twenty-first was a particularly fertile period of fantasy writing, in which J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter range heralded an epoch in which editors who were willing to open themselves up to new fantasy authors as well as magical people.

A lot of people have worked their way back from films like The Lord of the Rings or TV shows like Game of Thrones to their fantasy novels and looked for new writers after swallowing the books of J.R.R.R. Tolkien and G.R.R. Martin. When you are looking for your new, popular fantasy story, you've come to the right place.

We' ve assembled paste authors and authors to create a collection of our favourite books of the kind, from high fantasy environments with distinctive magical schemes to simply fantastic tales to metropolitan fantasy with figures torn directly from their own reality. These range from young adult books full of witchcraft and force to fantasy epic stories about conflict and warfare.

We have restricted our selection to two books per writer, and these books contain book listings in multi-volume serials, separate fiction and a compilation of shorts. Almost 150 books were given at least one voice, but we have restricted 50 books that we fully endorse. These are the 50 best fantasy books of the twenty-first century:

Featuring grudging characters, dark humour and stunning actions.

Featuring grudging characters, dark humour and stunning actions. Both other books are just as exciting, and there is no slump in the "quality" of the range. It is one of the best fantasy genres of trilogy. oe Abercrombie gets better with every one.

The Heroes is just one of the greatest books in the history of The Heroes, and his best work since 2016. It is a stirring introduction to the fantasy game and a volume of the First Law-tricology. oe Abercrombie uses all the classical fantasy convention and makes it into something new.

It is a trivial version of the epoxy fantasy that has been taken to a whole new plane. This is an art form within the art form that transforms the old fantasy clips into something more ingenious. Powerful, funny typing, down-to-earth humour, twisting plots and full of contrast features - this new look makes for smart read.

Grey tones are the new monochrome in this new game. From 2016 we take the books (grimdark) which in many parts have become a matter of course due to the great impact of Abercrombie and his break-out triology on the game.

He has contributed to developing a whole fantasy aesthetics (grimdark / gravelly). Although one cannot only pay tribute to Abercrombie, since his work was created on the back of Glen Cook, Michael Moorcock, George Martin, Tolkien legends, his First Law books have really contributed to shaping the tropics that characterize we nowadays.

Ironically, the First Law has undermined many of the Tolkienized Tropics that have been defining the fantasy generation for centuries, but a decade after The Blade Itself was released, Lawerence's work itself has become a kind of fantasy trap, with its own kind of submissive anti-hero es and pebbly world-famous fantasy note-books.

This kind of fantasy is the main fantasy many of our readership has. Abercrombie has produced even better books since The Blade Itself was released. However, this tri-logy tale was his first novel and the one that made him a great hit in the field and his most formative work.

He is still one of the best fantasy writers in the game. Abercrombie books are not necessarily suitable for everyone, because his books have a very tongue-in-cheek attitude, character are ethically ambivalent and sometimes do evil, poor things for good causes (or just good things for evil reasons), and he doesn't necessarily create "epic" fantasies (outside the first trialogy, which was a subset of the epoxy fantasy), but it is a fantasy that is just so fucking amusing that you can't fell in love with it.

Featuring a Martin-like storyline and Jim Butcher speed, The Axe and the Throne is an absolute "must" for the most picky fantasy-fan. Despite the tendency to eclipse, where the writers often cover every sequence in depressingly dark, there is no shortage of happy scenes or bright scenes. However, the post-books are not so much about the inspiring environment as about the people who live there.

Ranging from wild, merciless hero icons to profound, retrospective rogues, this storyline is made up of credible and unimaginable action. It is these people - the ones you want to split a beverage with or end up killing with - who make the link between fantasy and the world.

However, no work would be exhaustive without an appropriate amount of intrigues, and that is what is lacking here. If you have a good enough walk that you want to leak the pages and a storyline that is just as exciting, you won't buy this set bad. It' one of the best shows out there.

The books were awarded a Nebel and Hugo Prize. These are the kinds of books you can always reread, then a few more. The Earthsea myth is one of the great works of fantasy music. It' a coming-of-age story that will fill the emptiness of the wait for Rothfuss' next work.

It' a coming-of-age storyline that will fill the emptiness of the wait for Rothfuss' next work. It' not an easy one, it's a great epos that only now shows. The first of the books in the show, the first in the collection, was wonderfully composed and interesting. The next installment in the show, Tower of the Arkein, is the place where the plot really begins to evolve and where Chase Blackwood excels as an auteur.

It' a very powerful introduction to the fantasy world, and if the next one is just as good, you might think it will cause a sensation. Until recently I felt that Tigana Kay's Magnus Opera was a work he would never outdo. Turns out Kay's latest novel Under Heaven, an alternative story playing in a mythic China, is as great as Tigana, and perhaps even better a narrower, more concentrated, more arousal.

During Heaven is Kay's first excursion into Asia's historical and cultural life, his other endeavors focused on Europe's past. Kays books are made for those who really like reading, enjoying a lush walk and value excellent characterisation. There' are a few gifted word smiths in the fantasy category who can enchant you not only with a wealth of stories, but also with their own fiction.

One of them is Kay, up there with a fistful of poetry writers like Sean Williams, China Meiville and Neil Gaiman. Kay is at the forefront of the historic fantasy scene and he is a champion at it. Most of his stories are part of a fantastic changing story, rich in actual culture, locations and historic epochs.

First I was seduced by Kay's literal magic (because that's what it is, Kay throws a magic net with his handwriting and pulls you into his world; once you sense the magic, you're forever tied to his works) with his faulty work, Fionavar Tapestry. It was Kay talking to the Lord of the Rings, and while the derivation also had its own distinctive identification and was profoundly pervaded with Kay's profound knowledge of Western music.

Since then Kay has had many good books (he never quite touched his former fame, although some of his rages were provoking by alternate revisions of Venetian Europe and medieval Germany). Kay's characters are not the hero of fantasy, they are not always the gifted sword fighter, the valiant hero, the all-powerful sorcerer, but men of wisdom and joke, not of warfare.

Kay's characters are indeed writers and jugglers, the master of words and music. And, like his characters, who stand out in art and are celebrating speech, Kay's works always mirror his passion for it. He has authored many excellent books. If you want to be enchanted by the lamb-happy footsteps that drip with poetical splendour, please have a look.

If you want to be involved in a fantastic story of kings, servicemen, nobles and women, country folk and peasant people, who in some way influence the course of affairs in Kitai, the mystic old China empire, then please be solicitous. Better yet, there is a continuation of River of Stars, which is a different but touching story in the same old universe, but 400 years after the first one.

When words can tell a tale only through sounds, then Kay's prop does just that. If you like reading, please do so.
