Disclaimer, I’ve read more than Discworld but that’s my favourite
Kings of the wyld
*shameless plug* I have the first of my fantasy trilogy out. It’s called The Thornless Rose: Fire Blush. My main character is named Viviana, a lord’s daughter from the Kingdom of Dragoonus. She has some amazing abilities but she is scared she will kill someone she loves if she doesn’t get herself under control. Check it out at https://www.amazon.com/Thornless-Rose-Fire…/dp/B01LYJ1MQ3
This looks pretty good actually. I like my books with humour usually but I’ll give this a go, thanks. I’m also a writer ? albeit self-published the first two but going traditional for the next
@Lee hope you enjoy. I did put a little humor in it. I tried to keep it a light adventure fantasy story. 🙂
Kristen Ashley’s Fantasyland series
Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. I read that Terry Pratchett was heavily influenced by Douglas Adams x
He was, especially for the stuff outside of his Discworld series.
And I’ve read that but would put it as sci-fi really which isn’t my thing but the humour made up for it
That’s interesting. I haven’t read a lot of Douglas Adams. But massively in love with Terry Pratchett.
anything by Gaiman…..but Good Omens Bad Omens bridge that gap as they wrote it together.
Read everything by Gaiman and met him once ?
love his stuff, just wished he wrote more adult novels. my son does love his graphic novel Sandman.
I know what you mean. The Graveyard has some adult stuff in it though.
i loved Coraline so i can see the potential in all of his stuff, but Neverwhere and American Gods just blow you away.
Name of the Wind-Patrick Rothfuss
The Kingfountian series by jeff wheeler
The fourline series
Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan, or Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erickson. They’re all epic fantasy series but they are SO good!
Song of the Lioness.
Thanks for the suggestions. Some good choices here and one I’ve read but will happily reread.
David Eddings, Hugh Cook, Cecilia Dart-Thornton, Mark Lawrence. Raymond Feist, Janny Wurts ?
Harry Potter or Twilight. Amazing series.
Please never put them in the same category as Discworld ? twilight is shockingly bad and a romance story. And Harry Potter is ok but far from similar to Discworld or any other fantasy adventure with comedy
They are way better but is only my opinion.
Twilight is badly written.
But twilight is nowhere near as popular in the literary world as discworld
I actually loved the series and I always go back and re-read them.
@Rula There are people who like 50 shades. Twilight is horrible compared to Harry Potter, and Harry Potter is low-quality compared to Discworld. And Twilight is not fantasy, it’s teen romance with mormon propaganda. (I actually liked Twilight for what it is, and use many elements in roleplaying games, but it’s not good it’s enjoyable at most.) Discworld is witty almost-high-lit quality fantasy with all the staples like critique of society.
Everyone’s opinion matters but twilight is a romance and Harry Potter doesn’t come close to Discworld in the fantasy genre. It’s as simple as that.
Whatever. See you then.
A strange type of troll indeed.
The Dark Tower/Stephen King
Check out Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Sausages by Tom Holt
And the winner is……… Perfect. Thank you! Silliness makes the story for me
Witcher. Don’t do Harry Potter or Twilight! Read Witcher and Neil Gaiman. Maybe Belgariad and Wheel of Times (from my tbr), or A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones, it’s good).
