Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Must-read portal fantasy
« on: May 19, 2015, 12:56:13 AM »
I didn't know that portal fantasy was a controversial, for want of a better word, sub-genre of fantasy until I came to this site.
I realised I don't think I've ever actually read any portal fantasy, are there any really great examples that I should read?
Age-rating isn't an issue.

The comic tells the story of Antimony Carver, a young girl who has just started attending a strange and mysterious school called Gunnerkrigg Court. She is accompanied throughout the storyline by her friend and classmate Katerina Donlan and her companion Reynardine, a demon living within a stuffed animal.

 The comic's style and themes include elements from science, fantasy creatures, mythology from a variety of traditions, and alchemical symbols and theories; the literary style is heavily influenced by mystery and manga comics.

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / The Traitor Spy trilogy
« on: May 16, 2015, 05:14:49 PM »
I'm a big fan of the Black Magician trilogy but I haven't checked out the Traitor Spy trilogy, how is it?

I love Discworld but I've never read the Tiffany Aching books, how are they?

I know they say never judge a book by a cover but if I see a cover is just a live-action male model, possibly shirtless, and/or female model looking at each other or the reader then I'm going to overlook that book.

I've read HDM, it's really great. Also, I do count books with multiple viewpoints, The Black Magician Trilogy had them too.

I was wondering if people could recommend fantasy novels with child/teen protagonists but that are aimed at adults.
I'm a big fan of Trudi Canavan's Black Magician trilogy, so something similar but it doesn't have to be.
Also if anyone has read the Black Magician trilogy, how does the Traitor Spy trilogy compare?
