Hi ppl, What's your favourite book ,or trilogy etc ,of the post Tolkien era and why. Obviously if I had not added the last bit 90% would just lump in with The Lord of The Rings. Mine is the Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb. Superbly written, Hobb makes Fitzs' orphaned start to the series so beleivable that you are almost instantly dragged into the story. Ideas such as "Forging", are refreshingly different. The lack of Orcs ,and any of the Tolkienesque characters ,put a more unique feel to the books and avoid the sort of repetition so often witnessed by other authors.
