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 recommend the series NightLord by Garon Whited, all POV of the main character and full of magic, knights and vampire stuff. Cool plot twists early on.

    Great list – Any of David gemmell’s series (especially those with Druss) are fantastic reads as well

    I’ve read quite a few of the titles you have on this list, I’m rereading the sorcerers path at the moment (incredible series) and I will recommend the sorcerers ring series, it’s a great sword and sorcery series with an insane amount of books. If you like the underdog who almost immediately gets beat down then suddenly is one of the most powerful people in the kingdom,(magic and social status and he’s a soldier) so not just magic stuff it’s all kinds of crazy.

    Thank you for your reading suggestions. There are so many and time is limited so it’s great to have a list to refer to when I’m looking for a new fantasy series.
    Take care,

        If you are a series addict like me…. Check out the older series Dragonlance series. Margret Weiss and Tracy Hickman are awe inspiring. They were my very first taste of fantasy way back when. Enjoy all and anxious for the KDT 4th in series Kel!! You Rock.
