    A series that i really enjoyed was the Left Behind series (definately not pushin anything as that would violate forum rules. just want to make that clear)...but I think there are like 12 books in that series and I read them over a 2 month period. That for me is an accomplishment :happy53: and says something for the books as I am a tremedously slow reader.

    Good man. I just finished reading his new one, Promise of the Witch King(no Drizzt, just follows the assassin Artemis Entreri) and its really good. Salvatore always keeps me coming back for more. :happy34:

    Also one of my favorite series is The Death Gate Cycle by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman (creators of Dragonlance world). Its a very good 7 book series.

    I like the death gate cycle... found that they kind-of gave up near the end of the story tho... just kept introducing more powerfull creatures. The ending was a total cop-out .

    Gotta love the idea behind the whole series tho... apparently we have similar taste in books :happy34:

    Ian Irvine, View from the mirror series (in order they are: A Shadow on the Glass, The Tower on the Rift, Dark is the Moon, The wya between the Worlds). Has to be my favourite series to date. There's then a followup series of which starts with the book Geomancer.

    I'm after a new series after I re-finish this one, maybe I'll look into Salvator....

    youll have a lot to look into... hes written close to 16 books about Drizzt alone, plus a few other Forgotten Realms books and a few others.

    You might want to check out Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series. Quite an interesting 7 book series. You might also like his Bio of a Space Tyrant series as well. Then there is his Xanth novels which are also pretty good. :happy34:

    Ah, books - finally a topic I can post an opinion on. ;)

    Authors I've really enjoyed reading are:
    - Steven Erikson: Malazan Book of the Fallen series (I think that's what it's called). - Wonderfully complex with many plots and subplots, but without the tales being messy or hard to follow.
    First book: Gardens of the Moon.

    - Melanie Rawn: Exiles series. - Set in a world where women are the dominant gender. About two mage factions at odds, sort of.
    First book: Ruins of Ambrai.

    - Janny Wurts: Wars of Light and Shadow series. - Beautifully spun tale about two brothers and matters of what is good vs evil.
    First book: Curse of the Mistwraith.



    Those are books that I wouldn't hesitate to suggest to anyone, the following only for those that don't mind graphic descriptions about, uhm, (painful) physical experiences of a professionally amourous nature (oblique, I know - ask me ingame or something for more details).

    - Jacqueline Carey: Don't think the series has a name, but the books are, in order: Kushiel's Dart, Kushiel's Chosen and Kushiel's Avatar. - Set in a country where "love as thou wilt" is the general motto, an unlikely heroine becomes involved in a political plot against the throne.
