Forgotten Realms Novel: The Legend of Drizzt #02: Exile by R A Salvatore
Forgotten Realms Novel: The Legend of Drizzt #02: Exile

Arcane6Moon6, November 5, 2009

After Homeland the first of the Legend Of Drizzt series comes this Exile. I have read many Exile stories, and I seem to always compare them to this book. After Drizzts schooling, and living in the city of the drow he finds himself in the tunnels of the underdark that lies under fearun, and the cities it holds. In the underdark its lightless tunnels filled with peril at every step. Drizzts skills as a hunter, and warrior are pushed to the limit as he tries to survive with nothing but his panther Gwen at his side. A run in with his evil family sent to bring him back to the city for sacrifice he takes his trail further towards the "surface" where Drow are not welcome, and light of day will burn Drizzts eyes. You will see how far Drizzt is willing to go to forget his past in the evil world that is the Drow. Follow this one with Sojourn the 3rd novel in the Drizzt series while he makes it to the surface, and if the underdark was hard this has many more obstacles for him to overcome.

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
The Mists of Avalon

Arcane6Moon6, November 5, 2009

This version of the King Arthur legend is through the eyes of the people of the throne, while reading this book I was often shocked by the vivid pictures it presented, everything is detailed by not over-so like many tales of Arthur. It focuses a lot on the deciet, and treachery that beheld the kingdom while living the rise of a great king. If you were ever intrigued by Arthurian tales but thought they would be lame, or boring compared to other fantasies this the BIG EXCeption to that.

Blade Runner: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K Dick
Blade Runner: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Arcane6Moon6, November 5, 2009

If there ever was a novel that could bring you into a world so like our own in some ways but greatly different in others its BladeRunner. If youve seen the film do not try to keeep that in your mind while trying to read this, although his has many obvious similarities to the film the book follows much more precisley to each characters personality, and emotional focus. Dark, post apocolyptic cities, and androids disguised to avoid the bounty hunter make this a must read novel for any fans of sci fi, and the dark fantasy genre.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea: Abridged Edition by Jules Verne
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea: Abridged Edition

Arcane6Moon6, November 5, 2009

If youve seen the movie pick this up! it brings you much deeper than the film can, and the writing is very contemporary. I have suggested this many of friends and the ones who picked it up agreed that anyone could love this story. Sci fi meets old legends
