If you have already read "The Hobbit" and "VK" - try to finish reading the cycle. First, "The Silmarillion" is an insanely boring book at first, but rightfully considered the most difficult and most difficult example of high fantasy. Everybody there Martin, Sapkovsky and others are resting - there is not only about chopping off the head of the one hundred and eighth great-grandson of Kurufinwe Feanaro every two pages, but also the recalculation from woody years to sunny years, and a huge space for thought - almost more than in "The Lord of the Rings ".

Then, a dilogy about the First Age - in fact, developed and transformed into novels individual chapters of The Silmarillion. The Dilogy includes the books "Children of Hurin" - well, a very heavy book about the curse that fell on Hurin Talion himself, his children, his wife and everything to which they had a part in the past, present or future, and "The Tale of Beren and Luthien" , about which you have probably heard more than once. If I am asked to name the best romantic book (which I, I confess, am not an expert), I would name it - just take it and read it, I do not like sentimental literature, but I "ate" it in one evening.

Yes, pathos, pathos, pathos. But Tolkien is not pure fantasy, it is the author's mythology, the broadest and incredibly worked out in all respects - a kind, full-fledged story of another (or our?) World, as if told by someone ancient in the style of the eighth or ninth century. Read safely!

So, well, you are obviously already familiar with the work of Tolkien.

What else? The Witcher series by Sapkowski; if in games - Series "Dragon's Spear" (Dragonlance) and "Forgotten Kingdoms"

Trilogy "The Chronicles of Siala" Pekhov

From a somewhat non-standard fantasy - Series "Basil Khvostovoy" by Christopher Rowley. The plot is built around the fighting dragons undergoing military service and the dragoners taking care of them. There were no elves (but I read about ten years ago), but there are plenty of varieties of orc-demons and trolls. the Roman tribune of Marche Scavre, which fell into the fantasy world, and about a thousand more Romans from his legion.

If you love not only the genre itself, but also RPG-style games, I highly recommend Dmitry Rus's series "Play to Live" - ​​it is about how, as a result of the development of technology and some mystical processes, the border between the real and virtual worlds is erased and many people find themselves at a crossroads. The whole series is sold per liter.

I highly recommend warcraft.

First I got acquainted with the game Warcraft III, then purely by chance stumbled upon books, which was a great surprise for me.

Insanely interesting, I want to wake up as soon as possible, to continue reading. I think you will like it :) This is one of the few series of books that I will never get tired of rereading. By the way, a promising film about the universe is coming out soon. You can see the chronology here: mmo-obzor.ru

I also recommend "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings". They are also very rich and rich books. Insanely interesting.

I've heard a lot about the warhammer 4000 series, but haven't read it myself ... You can get acquainted here: livelib.ru

Happy reading!
