  1. If you have already read “The Hobbit” and ” VK ” – try to finish reading the cycle. First of all, The Silmarillion is an insanely tedious book at first, but it is rightfully considered the most difficult and most difficult example of high fantasy. All sorts of Martin, Sapkowski and others are resting – here is not only about chopping off the head of the one hundred and eighth great-grandson of Kurufinwe Feanaro every two pages, but also counting from tree years to solar years, and a huge space for reflection-almost more than in the Lord of the Rings.

    Then, a dilogy about the First Age-in fact, individual chapters of the Silmarillion developed and turned into novels. The dilogy includes the books “Children of Hurin” – well, a very heavy book about the curse that fell on Hurin Talion himself, his children, wife and everything they had a part in in the past, present or future, and “The Tale of Beren and Luthien”, which you probably heard about more than once. If I am asked to name the best romantic book (which I confess I am not an expert at), I would name it-just take it and read it, I don't like sentimental literature, but I “ate” it in one evening.

    Yes, pathos, pathos, pathos. But Tolkien is not fantasy in its purest form, it is the author's mythology, the widest and most incredibly elaborated in all respects – a kind of full-fledged story of another (or our own?) the world, as if told by someone ancient in the style of the eighth or ninth century. Read boldly!

  2. So, well, you're obviously already familiar with Tolkien's work.�

    What else? The Witcher series by Sapkovsky; �if based on games – The Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms series

    Pekhov's Chronicles of Siala Trilogy

    From a somewhat non-standard fantasy series “Bazil Khvostovoi” by Christopher Rowley. The plot revolves around combat dragons serving in the military and dragonboys taking care of them. There didn't seem to be any elves (but I've been reading about it for ten years), but there are plenty of varieties of orcs-imps and trolls.

    If you move even further away from the elves and orcs-the historical fantasy “The Missing Legion” about the Roman tribune Marcus Scaurus who failed in the fantasy world and about a thousand more Romans from his legion.

  3. If you love not only the genre itself, but also games in the rpg style, I highly recommend Dmitry Rus's series “Play to Live” – it's about how as a result of technology development and certain mystical processes, the border between the real and virtual worlds is blurred and many people find themselves at a crossroads. The entire series is sold on litres.

  4. I highly recommend warcraft.

    First I got acquainted with the game Warcraft III, then purely by chance I came across books, which was a big surprise for me.

    Very interesting, I want to wake up as soon as possible to continue reading. I think you'll like it 🙂 This is one of the few books in the series that I will never get tired of reading again. By the way, a promising movie about the universe is coming out soon. You can view the timeline here: mmo-obzor.ru

    I also recommend The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Also very rich and rich books. Incredibly interesting.

    I've also heard a lot about the warhammer 4000 series of books, but I haven't read them myself… You can get acquainted here: livelib.ru

    Enjoy reading!
