Looking for some new Sci/Fi or Fantasy novels.

So far I have read.

The entire Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind.

The Night Angel series by Brent Weeks

Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson

Enders Game

Some John Ringo

Even the some Karen Miller.

Helps!

My personal favorites are Empire of the East, and the Legion of Videssos. Videssos is about part of a Roman legion being transported to another world in which Magic is far stronger than in ours. It was written Harry Turtledove, and the world they are transported to bears a lot of similiarities to the eastern roman empire after the split, except with magic. Turtledove majored or minored in Byzantine studies, so he knows a lot about the period. Empire of the East is a future world (maybe ours) that is devastated by a near nuclear war in which a few bombs go off. Somehow this makes magic stronger, and wizards arise thousands of years afterward. I think it was what the Book of Swords was based on.

Not Sci/Fi but I recommend Goofus & Gallant by Garry Cleveland Myers.

I also can attest to the Wheel of Time series. Robert Jordan (RIP) was an amazingly gifted writer. I just started book 8 and I cant put it down. Also, I recommend The Chronicles of The Necromancer by Gail Z. Martin who happens to be a NC native.

Read in the Raleigh paper about a new book out, Things We Didn't See Coming by Steven Amsterdam. The review is good, gonna check it out at the library. Also gonna check out The Road mentioned in the review, same author that wrote No Country For Old Men.

The Road will make you want to put your head in an oven. Just be forewarned.

David Eddings.

Wheel of Time is horrible. At least to me. I read it up until partway through book seven and realized that the characters were to retarded to continue.

It would have been a great series if it had ended at book three.

Be patient with "The Road"

It's not an easy read

I agree with this. The story simply isn't good enough imo to deserve 14 (or whatever) 1000 page books.
