Hey guys! It has been way too long since I did a recommended reads post so today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite fantasy series! I absolutely love fantasy books and I love talking about them. Some of these I just talk about so much on my blog anyway, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they are on this list! Here’s my top recommendations:
Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell:
I cannot stop recommending this series! It’s one of my top fantasy series at the moment, it’s fantastic! It’s a very interesting story as it’s filled with both magic and non-magic. Every child has six tattooed bands on their arm for Iron, Silk, Sand, Breath, Blood, and Ember. Depending on which band they spark, they will then be able to wield that type of magic. Then there is a seventh called Shadow that is the deadly kind of magic and is supposedly cursed! Kellen, the main character, struggles to spark any of his bands. Instead of being given an incredibly rare magical gift, he ends up with none of those six bands and thus has to rely on cheap tricks to best his magical foes. He meets some pretty cool people who give him tips and tricks to avoid him instantly dying in fights with powerful magicians. It’s a series that is filled with many entertaining scenes and lots of twists! It’s pretty much a series of unfortunate events for Kellen! If you’re looking for a series that has magic with a twist, I highly recommend this one!
