Looking for new book, preferably a series

czekoskwigelczekoskwigel dfs, MSPosts: 458Member

I need something to read... I'd love a series, the longer the better, but I'll settle for a good single effort.

I read a little bit of everything....  so i'm looking for you to convince me to give your favorite book/series a try.

    His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire Series), by Naomi Novik: It's the Napoleonic Wars fought with dragons.

    The Honor Harrington space opera by David Weber. Think Horatio Hornblower in space except he's a she and she has a six footed tree cat empath as protector named Nimitz as well as her trusty manservant and several armsmen she picks up along the way.

    There is also Spider Robinson's Callahan's Crosstime Saloon series. Short but full of drunk punsters.

    I haven't read it yet, and it isn't a series yet...only one book so far. But he is going to make it a series. My friend is in love with it, so I'll pick it up when I have the cash.

     

    The Name of the Wind

     

    Is the book title. It is medieval-esque setting and...that is actually all I know about it. I'm not big into knowing too much about books before reading them, so I can't say much else other than that. Oh, one kind of unique thing. At least I haven't seen it done before...each of the books encompasses a whole day...so one book (which the first book looks rather big) is one day.

    My youtube channel:

    MMORPG.com is like 4chan, but for gamers.

    WoW already does WoW good.

    PvPers that gank newbies, are carebears. They don't want a challenge (like a carebear), they just want easy mode (like a carebear) and a no challenge combat (like a carebear).

    The Death Gate Cycle

    Written by: Margaret Weis, and Tracy Hickman.

    Following a nuclear fallout, the human species branched into two disticnt races: Sartan and Patryns. The world was torn into four distinct pieces pieces by the Sartans, to separate themselves from the Patryns. The Patryns were then imprisoned in what's called a "Labrynth". The role of the Sartans was sole sovereignty over the realms, but soon lost contact with one another.

    A young man leans to escape this labrynth, and is a herald to the coming message of his master. The Patryn and the Sartan saga continues throughout a series of 7 books.

    Though the series follows a fantasy driven plot, and use the same races as most fantasy books, their cultural descriptions are unique, along with the worlds they live on. In fact, it was quite hard for me to break away from tradition and accept the book. Once I did, the series was lovable.

    Race example:

    Sartans: Akin to modern man, they are chubby, and of the same height. Their hair is silver at birth, which turns brown from the tips up with age. They are community driven.

    Patryns: Due to hardships of the Labrynth, the Patryns are physically adept. They are soloists; however, faithful to a deadly degree. Their hair is brown from birth and turns white from the tips up with age.

    Humans: Because humans lack the ability to connect with nature, they are imbued with magical abilities. The abilities are powerful; however, compared to Sartan/Patryn magic, they're weak.

    I have been reading the Sword of Truth series and the Nik & Cal Leandros Series.

     

    Sword of Truth

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sword_of_Truth

    12 books. Wizards and fantasy and whatnot. It's fairly down to Earth. Great series. The show based on the books wasn't all that good (Legend of the Seeker). Each novel is pretty long and I'm only on book 2 of the series. 

     

    Nikko and Caliban Leandros

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightlife_(novel)

    First book in the Nik & Cal series. It follows 2 brothers in New York in present day. It's a paranormal book and is pretty simliar to the series Supernatural, but the 2 aren't related what-so-ever. The author gives creature, or monster, or whatever they come across her own spin. I forget how many books are in the series. I've read about 3 or 4 of them.

    Not even a hint of the type of books you enjoy?

    Ah well, a few of my favorites:

    Earth's children series by Jean M Auel  Prehistoric fiction. The story centers around a young Cro-Magnon girl raised by Neanderthals.

    Ender's Game series by Orson Scott Card. Science fiction. Overarching theme challenges our preconceptions of human interaction

    Alvin Maker series by Orson Scott card. Alternative history/fantasy. Setting is a very different version of early 1800's America (one where only about a third of the colonies won their freedom, George Washington was beheaded by the British, Napoleon Bonaparte was banished to French held Canada, etc.)

    Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen R Donaldson. Fantasy. This series features the least lucky hero figure I've ever encountered. The guy managed to catch leprosy in an age where it has all but disappeared and can't decide whether or not his hallucinations of a fantastical land are real. To top it all off he has a great deal of power in this alternate world, but cannot control it, and often ends up causing as much harm as good.

    Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett comedic fiction. Set mostly in Britain, the story is centered on a badly botched version of the Christian apocalypse. The antichrist gets swapped for the wrong baby and is brought up as a perfectly normal kid, Famine is busy making huge amounts of money in the celebrity diet business, Pestilence gives up and quits the whole gig while muttering about penicillin, etc...

    No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
    Hemingway

    Sword of Truth simply drags on, every book has the same damn layout: introduction, something bad happens, 400 pages of attempting to fix bad thing, hero wins. Secondary to the issue is that Goodkind seems to feel everyone is an idiot and has to lay out good and evil as polarly as possible. Evil people are simply purely bad, and good people are purely good. There is very little grey area in Goodkind's character portraits.

     

    Good Omens and the Ender series both get good reviews from me though.

    True, but it's still a good series. There is a little bit of grey area in the second book, but I can see what you mean.

    Kevin Mitnick's Book "Ghost in the Wires" looks to be awesome though. I read the first couple chapters on the Google Books preview and that's absolutely going to be my next read. I though it was going to be dry and dull, but it's more like an espionage thriller than anything else.

    The Night Strangers' by Chris Bohjalian ,

    its about a ghost story just in time for Halloween. In The Night Strangers, a family moves to an old New Hampshire house to try and rebuild their lives after the husband, a pilot, had to crash a plane with double engine failure into a lake, killing 39 passengers. Unfortunately, the house, like the family, is haunted.

    You may want to check out The Dragon Riders of Pern. It's a good mix of fantasy and scifi. There are 22 books in the series and a couple of short story collections as well. It will keep you busy for quite some time.

    nice to see you posting.

    Anyway along those same lines but the original would be the collaborative works of larry niven and jerry pournelle.

    The mote in gods eye, The gripping hand, then the one continued by a family member outies(ok except for one excellent character kindle only if im correct)

    but for a true series im gonna support a dead local author of my hometown roger zelazny the amber series, like 15 bucks for all 10 now and zelazny is one of the most underated sci fi authors of all time.

    To KT

    the original post apacalypic sci fi book is lucifers hammer and quite worth the read.

    I'll mention the obvious and popular choices since they haven't been mentioned...Dark Tower series, Wheel of Time (granted, it fizzled to the point that I lost interest after book 6), Song of Ice and Fire.

     

    Left field choice would be The Book of the New Sun series by Gene Wolfe.

     

    I'm caught up at work so I've been tearing through books. Thanks for the recommendations folks.

    Start again I heard them say;
    Don't dwell on what has passed away
    or what is yet to be."
