An all-time sci fi classic – the politics giving rise to a galactic crusade play out against an incomparable setting
The monolithic forefather of high fantasy, a huge tale that picks a thread of a larger history, beautifully told in Tolkein’s stately, literary prose.
Complex and rewarding, grown up fantasy. Think Conan the Barbarian crossed with Elric of Melniboné crossed with Alien, with the tone of Apocalypse Now!
A flawed masterpiece that scales the highest heights of fantasy, a vast cast centred on one man who stands as the balance between good and evil, creation and annihilation.
Warring aristocratic families tear their country apart, while monsters lurk on the edge of the kingdom.
Beautifully written and highly emotive political and epic fantasy.
