Hi, I am new to the board and wish to ask a question to all the fantasy lovers out there.

I am finishing return of the king, and want to start a new series.

I have narrowed it done to 2.

Either the war of souls trilogy (any good)

Or I hear many good things about GRRMs (Ice and Fire, is that series finished?)

Also I live in Oklahoma City and was wondering if you know if Jones new book is hitting shelves in U.S. anytime?

If someone would please tell me what you think of both series'

Heck I might just both series and say the heck with it.

Thanx for listening.

I didn't read the war of souls trilogy but I would start with GRRM's aSoIaF(it isn't finshed) if I were you. Why? Because, IMHO, this is one of the best series that I've ever read and because there's a midget in it. And who doesn't want to read about a midget?

As a short man myself, I would like to say, here's to all of you midgets out there.

But anyway... What kind of books do you like dark-knight? I really enjoyed ASoIaF, but it depends if you like that sort of thing.

I mean what is Ice and Fire about?
same with war of souls?
I mean I don't know anything about wach series so I posted because I wanted to know about the books, not know about midgets!

A Song of Ice and Fire is nearly three thousand pages long. Surely you don't think it so simple that it can be summarized in a few words, do you? Dragonlance's War of the Souls is just a jazzed up retelling of the Chronicles trilogy. Get thee to GRRM and start reading A Game of Thrones. You can thank us later.

Well he's one of the few writers trying to save the fantasy/scifi/speculative fiction genre, rather than just cash in and cash out for all he can get. Thank your lucky stars for people like GRRM. Were it not for him and a few other worthwhile writers, we'd be stuck reading Terry Brooks knockoffs for another three decades.

"War of the Souls"? Isn't this "DragonLance"? If it is, read the "Chronicles" before it.
