Fantasy Checklist Challenge: High Fantasy

Lloyd Alexander, of the Prydain Chronicles, can be given credit for coining the term "High Fantasy." A term used to define a genre that is placed in an imaginary world or based on epic and fantastical plots. This is a sub-genre of fantasy I have always liked. (more)

This is one of the best fantasy novels I've ever encountered. Sharon Shinn's writing is fabulous, both her world and plot are well-developed, and her characters are excellent. It's enough to make the reader wish the story never ended.

I find the entire series quite wonderful. Sharon knows her craft well. The characters are richly developed and the story is both interesting and surprising at times. These are the types of books I don't want to put down.... and anxiously wait for the next. Definitely a 5 star read.

I've read several of Sharon Shinn's books and found them largely enjoyable. This new world with mystics is interesting. However, while I enjoyed the journey through the land, and the unearthing of the nobles' plotting, I found that once again Shinn creates a romance that felt unnecessary to the story.

An exceptional fantasy. A heartfelt story of love and fellowship amid storm clouds of violence and ambition.
Shinn infuses her tale with strong emotions, more so than other authors in this genre.

I've read Mystic and Rider twice. ALL the rest of the series once. I loved them all, I continue to look and hope there will be another to this series.

I've read about half the series so far and I'm loving it. It's fantasy and adventure with a dab of romance. The world of Gillengaria is richly drawn and the characters utterly believable. Order of the series: Mystic and Rider ; The Thirteenth House ; Dark Moon Defender ; Rider and Raelynx ; Fortune and Fate.

This was a wonderful find. The first in a series about a land full of magic and wonders. Adventures around a core group of friends as they travel the land.
