Barnes and Noble picked five series that people should be checking out, and I'm honored that The Riyria Revelations is one of them. Here's something nice they had to say about my books:
This is one of my favorite suggestions for fans of Game of Thrones. Riyria has everything you could possibly wish for: the characters are some of the best I’ve ever encountered in fantasy literature, the writing is top notch, and the plotting is so tight you’d be hard-pressed to find a mouse hole in it. It also has one of the most satisfying endings of any series I’ve read.How great is that? But my real reason for posting is to help shine a spotlight on some of their other choices, so here goes:
- The Legends of Eli MonPress by Rachel Aaron - It's actually a lot like my Riyria Revelations and one of the series I've been recommending to people for years.
- The Tales of the Ketty Jay by Christopher Wooding - I've heard good things about this series for quite some time and I'm moving it up on my TBR pile after seeing what the author of this article said.
- The Samuil Petrovitch trilogy by Simon Morden - is a series that's put out by Orbit (the publisher that released The Riyria Revelations). I don't often go for post-apocalyptic stuff, but if that's up your alley, then I think it'd be worth a look. It won the 2012 Philip K. Dick Award.
- The Johannes Cabal books by Jonathan L. Howard - another new one for me, and one of the reasons I love "underrated" lists like this. Described as mixing darkness with humor in the vein of Terry Pratchett, that's enough to get me interested. It's on the TBR list!!
Hope this list gives you some good ideas of reads to pick up. And read the story that goes along with it, I think the writer does an exceptional job.
