What's your favorite high fantasy book? That's a really hard genre for me to find decent books in. (my current one is The Goblin Emperor, because even though I couldn't remember anyone's names the main character was great and the worldbuilding felt solid, plus it was neat to read a HF where there were no humans)
I’m really not a high fantasy person, haha. I don’t like it at all, that’s why I read so much of it, to try and find out if there’s one for me. There’s just so much racism in HF that I feel like it’s an impossible task. Stuff I did like:
- the bone witch by rin chupeco (necromancers, japanese-inspired)
- inked by eric smith (super cute world where everyone is born with magical tattoos)
- uprooted by naomi novik (polish folktale retelling with magic and creepy forests)
I haven’t read this one and not heard of it either! Interesting.
