    Hello everyone!

    First things first, I love Fantasy! However, you already knew that or I wouldn't be here. I've been looking for some new forums to discuss fantasy with others and found myself here. My name is Devin, I've been an avid reader since I first learned to read, and Fantasy is my favorite genre with Science fiction of course being a close second. I read fantasy as often as I can. If its a popular fantasy novel, i've likely read it, or i'm working on reading it. Whether it be written by Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, Weiss, Rothfuss, Brent weeks, Raymond Feist, David Farland, Peter brett, Rowling, Paoloni, Steven Erikson, etc (you get the picture) I've likely read it and would love to generate discussion about any Fantasy novel you enjoy and you're just looking for a kindred soul to discuss about the book, or what might happen in the sequel. I'm also a science fiction fan and can keep my own in that section as well if you wish to discuss some there as well. I've recently adopted reading more kindle versions of books than physical (though I still love physical more) because of the convenience and price. Which has introduced a great array of new authors I expect a lot from in the coming years, like Anthony Ryan and Michael Sullivan so i'm always looking for recommendations there.

    A little about me. I'm 24, an Air Force veteran, got out to go back to college and I'm currently pursuing my major in computer science. I love soccer and i'm a huge gamer (all kinds, pc, board, cards, console). I love to read (obviously) and play the alto sax in my spare time. If you have any questions I love to talk and I look forward to discussing Fantasy with all of you!

    Welcome Zar, always good to see someone with a comprehensive intro! By the looks of you, you might a few hundred words just to clear your throat... so the chances are you'll fit in famously!

    Welcome to the Asylum...

    Hey thanks for the greeting! I really enjoyed way of kings, and mistborn trilogy ( along with alloy of law) were excellent. I recently just read his rithmatist book, and while I think the book could have been even better if hadn't forced it into a young adult mold, I still enjoyed the magic system which is why I love him. Waiting patiently for words of radiance!

    That I do and thanks for the welcome! I'm not sure if I have a favorite team, if you had asked me when I was a kid I probably would have said manchester, but I tend to jump between them, chelsea and liverpool nowadays. Yourself?

    Did you try "Legion"? It wasn't really fantasy but it was pretty good anyway. Mistborn and Alloy of Law were amazing!!!! I loved the interplay between Wax and Wayne in the Alloy of Law... those too had me rolling on the floor at times.
    I did love Way of Kings by the end but it took me awhile to get into that one. Can't wait for the sequel though :)

    Yeah way of kings took a long time to to rev up, but once it did it was solid. I absolutely loved alloy of Law, but mostly because it was like seeing a wild wild west version of kelsier, whom I loved. I'm glad that sanderson decided he would write a sequel to alloy of law sooner or later, I just wish he would make it his second trilogy since he always said mistborn was a Trilogy of trilogies. He has so much on his plate though who knows when we will see it. Especially with the introduction of steel legion as well, hes juggling so many projects >_>.
