Suggested Reading

Readers often ask me for reading suggestions or about books that are like KDT, so I have put together a list of books you might enjoy. The list is far from complete, but I could probably go on for days. For most of these, I’ve fallen behind in the series and haven’t read all the books. I’ve been busy. 😃

    I just finished the 4th book and absolutely love the series . Can’t wait for the 5th especially with that cliffhanger at the end!

    I have read most of the books in your suggestions and especially enjoyed all the Brandon Sanderson books, the night angel and the king killer chronicles (please don’t follow Patrick Rothfuss in waiting years before finishing the next in your amazing series).

    Other books I would add to your list are the Painted
    Man by Peter V Brett (sadly the other books in the series aren’t anywhere near as good as the first)
    And the Black Magician Triology by Trudi Canavan.

    Please continue to follow rules 156, 176 and 47 to make the next book as excellent as it’s predecessors.

    The warhammer 40k books (part of the black library) are excellent fantasy fan reads also; especially the Eisenhorn and Ravenor series.
