Anyone ever read the Dagger and the Coin series by Daniel Abraham?


It's a very solid series, it's worth reading. Daniel Abraham's Long Price Quartet is quite good as well.



Thanks. I’ll put both on my list


Just curious, is there a fantasy series you haven’t read?

Seriously with work and kids, I struggle to read 2 books a month. It seems like you’ve read everything. I wish I could be more proficient.

I know it probably seems that way I guess, but mainly it is a combination of I've been reading fantasy for a long time, I am an extremely fast reader, and most importantly I don't have kids (and my uncle duties are limited since I live too far away from my nieces unfortunately). Gives me lots of reading time in addition to all my other hobbies. Plus I'm a rare high school teacher that doesn't coach at the moment and doesn't spend a ton of time during the summer teaching summer school or at trainings.

But I still find probably one series every couple months on this board that I haven't read (or many times heard of). Typically some person will suggest 3-4 authors I like and then occasionally someone I don't know.

From this thread alone Jonathan Renshaw and Nicholas Eames are two authors I picked up and read. Guys like the "We are Bob" author, Rob Hayes, and Alec Hutson (crimson queen) are people I probably would have never found without reading these boards.

Lately I've found a ton of authors by using kindle unlimited and searching through a couple best of kindle unlimited fantasy threads on reddit (a ton of medicore stuff to sift through, but much good stuff as well).

Many new fantasy guys with a ton of talent are on KU, which has had me read a bunch of really good series by authors I might not have tried otherwise. Folks like Will Wight, Alec Hutson, Rob J Hayes, Dennis E. Taylor, Kel Kade, David A. Wells, Jonathan Renshaw, and Drew Hayes are all great authors I read through KU over the past year.

I just finished "The Dawning of Power" trilogy by Brian Rathbone. Pretty good fantasy series. Think I'll check out his other stuff. I gave them 4 stars and for me that means they were well worth the read.

After looking these up, i'm between Broken Earth and Three Body problem..


on 2nd broken earth book. I didn't realize how short the first was and wasn't paying attention til I looked and had read 97%.

I do not love it yet, but its been interesting. Took me a minute to understand the viewpoints tying together but now its fine.

I thought the same, good / interesting Book 1 but nothing groundbreaking. Book 2 I thought was far better and one of the more interesting recent fantasy books I've read. Book 3 was also very good.
