My recently finished/reread fantasy list. I like mostly the Sanderson/Gemmell/Martins/Lynch/Rothfuss type material but went through a whole period of buying cheap stuff on amazon from mostly new/unknown authors and these are what i consider worth it and to my taste so far, after finally getting through most of them

Miles Cameron - 5 books of the Traitor Son cycle. Loved the attention to detail on combat and Knights that you'd expect from a historian/weapons specialist. Will be reread frequently

James Islington - First 2 books of the Licanius series. Very good with little I could find huge fault in - really am impatiently waiting the 3rd one to drop

Luke Scull - 3 books of the Grim Company series. Story of an aging First Sword and his companion (Jerek the wolf - one of my favourite characters in any books i think) who stumble into a war amongst the few remaining magelords

Ari Marmell - 2 books of the Corvus Rebaine. Corvus Rebaine, warlord, invader, known as Terror of the East, disappears and retires in the middle of his war and returns 20 years later. Bit of dark humour in this anti-hero set. Another that makes my reread pile

John Gwynne - 4 books of Faithful and the Fallen set - More standard tropes used in this one than others but doesn't detract from a good enjoyable read

Sebastien de Castell - 4 books of The Greatcoats - Swashbuckling fantasy, basically a little bit of magic combined with The 3 Musketeers. Very good


Other Stuff
Wool,Shift and Dust - bought after a few recommendations and thoroughly enjoyed them. Excellent reading from start to end.

Peter Cawdron - Anomaly / Xenophobia. These deal more of the human reaction to an alien contact event. Short standalone novels but worth looking at

Vince Flynn - The Mitch Rapp Series. Just for a change of direction, enjoyed them, movie was arse biscuits tho.


Now back to the daddy, a re-read of books 1 and 2 followed up with the newly released Stormlight Archive book Oathbringer by Sanderson
