Bookfilter: I need new stuff to read! Really enjoy fantasy where the hero is female.. bonus points if she's conflicted in some way.
I've been looking for new books to read.. and I've polled my family and friends, but not too many people enjoy my style.
I don't mean fantasy romance. I mean dungeons, dragons, swords, armor, and all things magical. Nothing is wrong with the characters falling in love, but I want the world being saved from evil ambitious people too.
I seem to enjoy books where the focus/hero is female.. especially if she's had to overcome adversity. But if the hero is male and has overcome adversity or is an anti-hero.. that's awesome too.
Here's a list of some of the stuff I've read that I enjoy:
- The Black Jewels Trilogy (by Anne Bishop)
- Kushiel Series (by Jacqueline Carey)
- Dragonlance Chronicles Trilogy
- Dragonlance Legends Trilogy
- Harry Potter
- Dragon Bones and Dragon Blood (by Patricia Briggs)
- Leandros Brothers series (by Rob Thurman)*
I've tried other parts of the dragonlance series and just couldn't get into them.
*I think I read these books solely because of Robin Goodfellow. It does not fit the mold of the books I traditionally like to read.
Bonus points if it's on the kindle, but I'm more then happy to buy physical copies of books that aren't.
