    I mostly like to read fantasy book when I do read, like R.A. Salvator and Lord of the Rings type. I was thinking of picking up the legend of the seeker but I don't really know which books are out there. Could someone recommend a quality book that is worth reading?

    Search this forum, there are a large number of people who have asked this question and gotten very good tips. Start digging and you will find treasure. Stay away from Terry Goodkind though. Really.

    I ordered the new R.A. Salvator books and was wondering what books you guys would really recommend again? I was thinking maybe some Andrzej Sapkowski but could you guys tell me your favorites?

    The three series I've read recently that I really liked were: Brimstone Angels: Erin M Evans: and Broken Blade: Kelly McCullough and The Warded Man: Peter V Brett. Brimstone Angels is a Forgotten Realms series about a pair of female Tiefling twin girls; one of them sort of accidentally ends up making a Warlock pact with a Cambion half-devil and everything goes to hell from there; almost literally. Broken Blade is about an assassin who used to serve the Goddess of Justice; taking down criminals who were too politically powerful to face justice for their crimes; then the other gods got angry because some of their favorite toys were being broken and killed Justice. Our hero has to figure out what his purpose is in a world without Justice. Warded Man is about a world with demons who come up out of the ground at night. The only protection is behind warded walls. Our hero loses his mother to a demon attack while his father watches terrified and our hero decides he's not going to put up with it anymore.
