Midnight Falcon (The Rigante, #2)Midnight Falcon by David Gemmell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this follow-up to Sword in the Storm where Connavar’s bastard son, Bane, travels to distant lands in hopes of winning fame with his sword. The twists and adventure are quite good. It was a highly enjoyable read from David Gemmell that I recommend to fantasy readers.

The Great Hunt (Wheel of Time, #2)The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series carried the characters on further journeys while the Dark One sought to either entrap or lure Rand. It the continuation of a wondrous adventure begun in The Eye of the World. The Great Hunt is called to find a mythic horn as part of the oft obscure prophecies of the next incarnation of the Dragon and either the end of the world or its salvation. No spoilers here – it’s an incredible read that doesn’t disappoint!

The Tombs of Atuan (Earthsea Cycle, #2)The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula K. Le Guin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ged’s adventures continue across Earthsea, seeking a hidden talisman. Told from the point of view of Tenar, a young high-priestess of a land of dangerous foes to Ged. It’s another skillfully woven tale by Ursula K. Le Guin that I’ve enjoyed numerous times over the years. If you’ve never read it, you will find the tale of dark powers, resourcefulness and courage an excellent read. Le Guin’s writing voice won’t disappoint you.

Dragonflight (Pern, #1)Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read the Pern series many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the whole series. Before Eragon, there was Pern and McCaffrey staked out quite a bit of fantasy territory with this first book of the series. I find that I want to read these again after many years. It’s well-written and very creative in setting as well as plot. That fantasy is well-developed – a story I highly recommend.
