    Marco .... Jackal of Nar, ...Maybe as the series goes on?
    Yes the next two improve. The third (Saints of the Sword) was a superb book, as a last book in a trilogy and in and of itself.

    Very easy...I waived our 50K a year Mod's salary for all the hard work we do, in lieu of some ad placements!

    Could someone please tell me the connection between Kay's Fionavar Tapestry and Donaldson? The trilogy was no where near as black, depressing and involved as Donaldson.

    Both Kay's Fionavar Tapestry and Donaldson's The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, The Unbeliever are cross-over stories--people from our world are transported to a secondary world.

    Thanks for clearing that up. so, the readers who enjoyed those books, should also like the Soprano Sorcoress, by Modesitt.

    try Michael Stackpole's Talion: Revenant or, even better, Matthew Woodring Stover's Heroes Die.
    For those folks who've picked up Stover on my recommendation, I'd suggest getting a copy of Stackpole's Talion. Both good examples of Heroic Fantasy. Talion is a bit lighter, but still an entertaining and enjoyable read.

    Also, if you liked Neil Gaiman's American Gods I'd suggest hunting down a copy of Robert Holdstock's Mythago Wood.

    If you like Kay's Fionavar you might like Joel Rosenberg's series because both have crossovers from this world to an alternative world. Or you may like Juliett Marillier. Her prose in "Daughter of the Forest" was lovely. If you like Gemmel you may enjoy Mike Resnick (though he's more science fiction.) Who would you compare with Elizabeth Haydon's Rhapsody series? Maybe Sarah Douglas' Enchanter series?

    Strangely, I'd be inclined to disagree with that Rosenberg recommendation, at least when it's based on Kay. What I've learned from others, but especially from my own reading, is that Fionavar Tapestry is a fantastic story, despite the fact that five main characters are cross-overs from Earth, not because of it. I thought that was one of the very few lesser elements in an otherwise marvellous story. I know some folks who really didn't like these books, and one of the main reasons is that the characters are cross-overs. Still, it might work for some, I just think that Fionavar is fantastic because of other factors.
