Excellent reviews, Thunderer, from you and Wasp. That is one book I certainly won't be wasting my time over! LOL!

Try Mark Chadbourn, The Age of Misrule & The Dark Age books.

For historical fantasy i would try:

Juliet Marillier - Sevenwaters Trilogy, Bridei Chronicles and some of her stand alones. These books are about magic, history and romance in 10th century Ireland. One of the authors that I discovered about 10 years ago and are well worn by now.

Jules Watson - Dalriada Trilogy set in Alba during the Roman Occupation. A story with a strong female heroine, filled with war and romance. A truly fantastic read!

Naomi Novik - Temeraire Series. Mix Naval Battles during the Napoleonic Wars and Dragons. Don't understand how it works but it does.

Fantasy Worlds:
Trudi Canavan, Alison Croggon and Christopher Paolini you have already mentioned so going from that try:

Maria V Snyder - The Study Trilogy. Fantastically written and engaging.
Fiona McIntosh - various trilogies, each very well written.

I hope that these suggestions help!

I'm seriously with you on Jacqueline Carey - I read and loved the first 2 trilogies and am now awaiting the Naamah series through the post. Cannot wait!

I have just read and reviewed 'Entanglement (The Entanglement trilogy)' by Maya Panika, it's a good read and worth having a look at.

You may like Terry Goodkind's The Sword of Truth novels. If you've ever seen Legend of the Seeker, this series was based on the books. It's otherworld fantasy, romance storyline running throughout, and plenty of magic/adventure.
Happy reading :)

`The Many Adventures of Colin Pollock` is different. The world is seen from an entirely different angle. Humans barely get a mention! Humorous in places, exciting in others and a very good story. Colin starts his life in Lyme Bay and ends up fighting the forces of Terrofishism. Some imagination to write this one!

You're also self-promoting, which isn't allowed in this forum. You need to go to the MOA.

My apologies, no offence meant, the danger of seeing things at bottom of pages and acting in excitement! please delete as necessary, blessings.

I enjoyed the Firesong trilogy from William Nicholson. Its quite young but a good one (my taste is almost exactly the same as yours). The Mortal Instruments series is very good too (Cassandra Claire) especially if you like Twilight.
And of course there's mine...but seeing as I suggested some others I'm hoping you won't get mad!!

A City of Secrets (The Island Trinity)

Thanks, I'll give them a go.

I have no problem with self promoting as long as they are any good! Which I'm sure they are.

Have you considered Jennifer Fallon with the Second sons trilogy ? It's not new but I thoroughly enjoyed it, hope it's a good suggestion for you.

Sookie has never been in danger. That's the advantage of being able to listen to people's thoughts. I block them out with headphones.

Yoy could try 'Five people you meet in Heaven' By Mitch Albon.
or The Book Thief but I cant remember who wrote it.
Alternativly you could try 'The Very Tall Tale of The Childe of Hale' which is Historical truth
and Fantastical fiction.

Try Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of winter night, Dragons of spring dawning, by (Margaret Weis/Hickman) an older series but a very good one full of magicians elves dwarves and dragons
with romance thrown in.

Try Witch in the Green - a new book by Shem Weaver. A little slow to start but soon develops into a real page turner. Good characters like in the books you mentioned.
