The Red Sister Trilogy - Mark Lawrence's new series from HarperVoyager


Recommended Posts

I didn't figure you wrote it =) Though I would love to see promos written by the author, could be very interesting.

But since we are playing...

Broken Kingdoms by NK Jemisin.

Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey

The Bone Palace by Amanda Downing

The Scar by Chine Mieville

Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett (any Granny book really but especially this one)

Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone (maybe this is UF)

Alphabet of Thorn by Patricia McKillip

Cold Magic by Kate Elliott (steampunk)

Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey (probably YA by today's standard)

God's War by Kameron Hurley (SciFi but reads much like fantasy)

Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie

Half Made World by Felix Gilman

That is my Goodreads list that doesn't include UF or YA. And you are right, not the strongest list around.

I've not read a lot of post 90s fantasy, so I've only read Dragonsong off this list - I do have a ton of McCaffrey books but remembered them as multi-pov. But if I'm wrong there then, yes! I own one :) I also have Tombs of Atuan mentioned above (fine book) though technically YA I believe.

Yeah, that happened to me a lot when I was trying to think of books: I could come up with a bunch that had women as the undisputed protagonist, but then I kept remembering that they included male pov as well. Downum's The Bone Palace is a great thought, but I believe Kyril or whatever his name is, Isylt's wizard mentor, gets a few chapters, so that's technically out too. Abillard, the young priest of Cose Everburning, also gets pov in Three Parts Dead I believe -- the prologue is him, at the very least. Gladstone's Full Fathom Five, which is told primarily by two women, is also technically out because the poet Edmund Margo gets a couple chapters. Don't know how I forgot Kushiel's Dart though; good point.

Yep, true, Tombs and the other Earthsea books were published for young readers from the beginning -- unlike some other fantasy that's been repackaged that way later on.
