I read alot of fantasy and I was hoping that someone could help me find new authors/books to get for my kindle. Some of my favourite authors;

Trudi Canavan, Fiona McIntosh, Brent Weeks (my favourite series of all time 'Night Angel'), Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, Peter V. Brett, Christopher Paolini, Gail Z. Martin, David A. Wells, Brian Rathbone, Trevor H. Cooley, David Dalglish (for the Shadowdance Trilogy).

Having read so many great authors work I am now having difficulty finding new work to tide me over. Magic and Swordsmanship are a must and I love stories which give focus to the development of these skills and there use. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm Not sure if you would be majorly interested in this one but maybe take a look at the Night Light Chronicles:The Dark, it's not amazingly written but it does had a sword fight in it and uses Dark and Light powers, its by a new writter may be worth a look.

orson scott card's 'seventh son series' is a good read: fantasy with a difference. My favorite: Terry Goodkind's 'sword of truth series'. Or for something new, why not go on meet the authors and check out what's being promoted there.

Not a new author, but maybe new to you as you haven't listed him, try Magician (Riftwar Saga book 1) by Raymond E Feist. Currently at the ridiculously cheap price of £1.99.

If you're not looking for high fantasy (orcs, elves, dwarves etc) then I would really recommend The Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. Brilliantly written, gritty and (for me at least) utterly captivating. Be warned however, the books ask a lot more questions than they answer and there's a lot of wondering what the hell is really going on. Ian C Esselmont has also written a number of books based in the same world/universe.

Another author I read a lot of (have every one of his books) is Jim Butcher. From your description of what you're after "Magic and Swordsmanship are a must and I love stories which give focus to the development of these skills and there use" his Furies of Calderon's series would be ideal. I also have to mention Jim's Dresden Files, which are one of the best urban fantasy series around (and my personal favourite of any fiction series). His writing is clever, witty and draws you in completely.

Apologies, I didn't realise I could delete a post.

Karen Maria Morning has written an excellent series re magic in an urban setting. It is well written and I found it quite unique. Also for some light easy reading which is quite comical with lots of magic, elves and demons, try Kim Harrison. Hope these suggestions help.
