Fantasy Recommendations by Subgenres

fantasy novels 101Fantasy is a tricky genre to do a recommendations list for because it has such a wide variety of sub-genres under it. This being the case, no one can truly know what type of story they will be getting into when they are recommended a fantasy novel without first asking what kind of settings or characters it focuses on. With this in mind, I have organized my recommendations list by these sub-genres to help anyone who reads this to know what type of fantasy books they will be getting into if they decide to read them. Because many of these sub-genres overlap, I am going pair them up by how similar they are to each other.

    Thanks for putting this together, I’ve never heard of the Shannara Trilogy- I’ll have to give it a look.

  2. I guess I would be a science fantasy sort of guy. I loathed fantasy until my early twenties and only gave the genre a proper chance after beating Final Fantasy 9, which inspired me to check out other RPGs.
