If you wounder why I wasn't online the last two and a half weeks - it's because of a book, or better - books.

Good old (or new) fantasy by Brandon Sanderson: Stormlight Archive.
More than 5000 pages (so far and more to come), in middle age environment with energy held in gemstones wich can be charged by devastating storms. I am looking forward to the year 2020 when the next book should be published.

If you like fantasy for adults then try The Belgariad by David Eddings (pentalogy). The conclusion to that series is called The Malloreon; another pentalogy.

Do you like science fiction? Then why not try The Gap Cycle by Stephen R. Donaldson - you may also want to read The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by the same author.

If you like your fantasy with a healthy dose of humour then why not try The Spellsinger Series by Alan Dean Foster? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spellsinger

Edit: Just noticed Bill's post. Excellent choice sir! I read those years ago :-)

that sounds like a lot of fun to me @allana

especially if those books are made of real paper (recycled of course)

When I finished the Malloreon - which is the final five books after the Belgariad - it felt like I was saying goodbye to old friends. That's how immersed I was in the characters and the plot. However I was only 20 :-)
