    Hello, strangers. My name is Kestrel. Actually, that was a lie, but that is what you may call me. My name is Alison (or Ali), and obviously I'm a fantasy fan.

    I probably haven't read as much fantasy as most of you (I'm a slow reader.......it's annoying) but I've greatly enjoyed just about any fantasy book I've ever picked up. These include:

    - WoT (up to book 4; am currently reading #5)
    - ASoIaF (up to book 3; am slowly working through Feast for Crows, but I have been since August, so it'll probably be a while till I've finished)
    - LotR (been quite a while since I read that)
    - Farseer Trilogy {Robin Hobb}
    - War of the Roses {Tad Williams}
    - His Dark Materials {Philip Pullman}
    - Harry Potter (sorry, yes, I am a sucker for it)

    Anyway, you get the general gist. There are a few others, but there are a lot more I'm still wanting to read (i.e. the rest of WoT and Robin Hobb's other trilogies). But I decided to come here to discuss a few and maybe look for a few other recommendations.

    I've probably rambled on enough for now. Think I'll head on over to the other discussion boards......

    Ah, thank you for all your wonderful welcomes.

    Renzokuken: thank you, I will indeed check it out when I have some more time (it is getting quite late now!)

    Lord_Croanan: I'm not sure whether to thank you or hit you over the head with something heavy for reminding me of yet another book(s) I need to read over again. It's been a long time since I read them. But I agree, they really are very good books.

    "Welcome Alison." Schmavid chose to use the maidens real name, rather than the alias that she had chosen for herself. He smiled, hoping to let this new traveller feel at ease. "Enhoy your time here and let me know if you need any help."

    Ah, I see you are big on roleplay. I used to love RP a couple of years ago when I was on the Lords of Legend site. Well, greetings to you Schmavid and thank you and everyone else for your warm welcomes.

    P.S. Thanks, Lady Cyllieth. Yours and your signature are also lovely.
