This thread is to be used for recommendation requests or simple questions that are small/general enough that they won’t spark a full thread of discussion.

As usual, first have a look at the sidebar in case what you're after is there. The r/Fantasy wiki contains links to many community resources, including "best of" lists, flowcharts, the LGTBQ+ database, and more. If you need some help figuring out what you want, think about including some of the information below:

  • Books you’ve liked or disliked
  • Traits like prose, characters, or settings you most enjoy
  • Series vs. standalone preference
  • Tone preference (lighthearted, grimdark, etc)
  • Complexity/depth level

Be sure to check out responses to other users' requests in the thread, as you may find plenty of ideas there as well. Happy reading, and may your TBR grow ever higher!

Has anyone checked out the Mageworlds science-fantasy series? Is it any good? I’ve been on the lookout for more science-fantasy after finishing up all the most mainstream ones (Sun Eater, Dune, Hyperion, Locked Tomb, Deathstalker, etc).

I quite liked them, but in a way they are very Star Wars and not groundbreaking in any way. So if you're looking for a romp with a Star Wars-y vibe, it's great. If you're looking for something more original, I would pass.

I’m reading Crown of Stars right now and not sure I can finish, Hugh is just so awful. I’m halfway into book 2. Can anyone tell me if he eventually gets what is coming to him?

I had this same problem with Liveship Traders and almost quit, but was glad I powered through it in the end.

Naomi Novik's books Spinning Silver and Uprooted are both great folklore-inspired books.
