Realllly a good taste. More variations is always welcome
I would recommend Wilbur Smith's River God. Its probably one of the best books written in the Fantasy genre, though why it would be this underrated baffles me.Also The Tale of Atlantis by Ronald Bradshaw is a great read in fantasy. Though that one is self-published, so there is the odd editing error.
So I know it's hard because there is a lot of garbage to sift through but it would be really cool, in my opinion, to have a best indie fantasy list. Don't know if that's something you've looked into or not but I, for one, would be ecstatic to see it.
I'm working on one :)
have a challenge for yall , im searching for a book about kids with magic abilities. the hero is a young girl running from the kings minions (who wish to make them fight in a war meant to kill off all those born with powers) with her brother, dont know his power but she can speak with animals and they with her. about half way through the book she meets a lord with the power to kill with a single touch, and in his castle he has the last 3 dragons in the world (btw dragon scales in the soil and water are what gave this generation of kids their powers)

I just have to make this comment...the heroine of Kushiel's Dart is not named Kushiel. She's named Phèdre nó Delaunay. If you don't even know the names of the characters, don't write a review of the book (which, incidentally, is excellent, but is definitely NOT "romantic fantasy;" Phèdre is a spy who simply happens to work as a courtesan.)
thanks for pointing the spelling error out -- I had the wrong name there for the heroine. This is now fixed. However, I stand by my placing the book under the category of ROMANTIC FANTASY as romance and romantic relationships are the centerfold to the plot and story.
I agree with the first comment – Kushiel's Dart is definitely not romantic fantasy. Personally, I would consider it to be political fantasy. Yes, there's a romantic subplot but it is never the book's main focus. More attention is paid to the relationship between Vaelin and Sherin in Blood Song than to that between Phedre and Joscelin in Kushiel's Dart. Just because the main character is female doesn't mean a book should be automatically relegated to the 'Chick Lit/Romance' pile.
