Poll - In what order would you read these books?
« on: May 09, 2019, 11:53:51 AM »
Hi all, here is another poll for you (well, for me to be honest).  :)

These are the books I collected to read but I cannot decide which one I should read first. Since I already started Kings of the Wyld, I took it off the options. Please choose 3 books from the list so we can do a total count after 10 days (by then, I am planning to finish reading Wyld)

Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Magician is one book (or released in 2 parts) depending on publication. Don't dive into entire Riftwar saga as books after Magician aren't as good. The last book Magician's End is class.

Riyria - I preferred Chronicles to Relevations. Much better series, I though.

Shannara - One of my favorites in younger days. Went back recently and it hasn't aged well. Unless you like YA stuff, I'd avoid this.

Black Company - Books of North is awesome. Rest are "just" very good and the last book Soldiers Live is pretty much a classic.

Broken Empire - Good series but author relies more on shocking you than capturing your interest. And that climax...

Night Angel - Decent read.

Haven't read other two.

One cannot agree with this opinion. I really enjoyed all the books up to Shards of a Broken Crown and all of them are twice the story of Magician's End.

So there!  :P
