But did you read the WHOLE series?

I own all 15 or so books and reread them all the time!

I haven't read anything by Elizabeth Haydon. Will have to look into that!

I do like anything by Melanie Rawn - esp. The Dragon Prince series of 3 books and the Star Scroll series of 3 books. Wonderful!!

Also - The Chronicles of the Cheysuli by Jennifer Roberson (originally a series of 8 but I believe the reprint is reset and condensed to a series of 4 VERY thick books.). Jennifer also has a series with the first book called "Sword Dancer"

Love the Valdemar series - its too bad she's taking a break from writing them. Bah.

I also like the Mistborn series. Its my new favourite. It takes the fantasy genre and turns it on its head. So what if the hero doesn't win? What happens then? Its by the guy who's going to finish up/flesh out the final book of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.

I'm going back over the Wheel of Time series again. I want to make sure I have an idea of what's going on for when the final book comes out (late 2009-ish).

I was really into Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth novels, but I haven't picked any of the last three up.

Anne McCaffery's Pern series always intrigued me. I like the ones that pick up in the "middle" of the colonization more than the "beginning" books.

I also enjoy Kristen Britain's Green Rider series. Its about how magic has faded from the world and the knowledge that most people have is few and far between. Then you have the big bad guy who opens up their world to all these evil monsters and the heroine, a Rider (messenger), has to save it. Yet all she has is this brooch and keeps seeing the very first messenger who started the Green Riders.

Eh those are my faves...

Megan

yeah once you get into the Xanth books he wrote because there was a huge fan base (20+) they get a little boring. i liked them because i read the first handful (or two) as a young teen and then re-read them as an adult and couldnt believe i missed sooooo many of the innuendos!!! they were just riddled with some of the best puns ever.

ill have to check out that Maeve chic! im always looking for a new book AND the are almost done rebuilding our local library.

LOL As far as Xanth goes, I gave up after the first 9. I love Piers, but it get's a little tiring.

Mauve is romance, just an FYI.
