I came across this site looking for fantasy books and was hoping some of you could help me find a good book. I really like all kinds of fantasy books, I've read all of the Drizzt series, First Law trilogy and all of Joes other books, Kingkiller Chronicles, and the Night Angel trilogy, but my favorite kind of books are the gory and graphic ones. First Law was pretty perfect with what I'm looking for, KKC was also amazing but I have to wait for the last book to come out before I can resume that. The Night Angel trilogy seemed good at the start, but as I got further into it I felt like it lost momentum. I don't much care for the self loathing Kylar goes through and it started to have a childish feel to it, like it was written more for teens than adults.
I like sword and sorcery books kind of like LOTR or any of the Drizzt series and Spider Queen series, but it seems hard to find books like that that are also gory or graphic. I really like books with "grey" characters like Ninefingers and I've been looking for a book that follows the "villians" point of view or both sides of the story. I also read a lot of zombie books so I'm open to those books as well, and some of the Diablo books so I'm really open to pretty much any kind of fantasy, I just like it to be graphic and descriptive and not cliche.
I don't normally like epic fantasy, I usually like it to be more of a personal vendetta or low scale, but there have been a few good epic stories I've read. I don't normally like the whole all of humanity rests on one guys shoulders thing. Any suggestions?
EDIT: I also have not read any of the Fire and Ice novels or any Tolkien books. Tolkien may be good for me but I've never read it so I can't be positive, I just know its not very graphic, whereas the Fire and Ice series has a lot of sex. I'm not against sex, but if there's a ton of it I feel like I'm reading a smut book and knowing what the author looks like just throws me off. Can't imagine him writing it and not getting off on it, just throws me off. I can deal with it if it's not terribly in detail and not like a chapter long describing it all. Idk why I can deal with violence and and not sex but that's the way it is for me haha. I'm used to gory books and I'm fine with that, and I'm fine with sex, I'd just rather my book focuses more on violence than sex. I can imagine an older guy knowing about violence but when he's writing about depraved sex scenes I just feel awkward, even if I'm alone. How much sex is there really in A Song of Fire and Ice and how mug violence is there in Tolkiens books? I honestly think GRRM is more up my alley but the sex just makes me leery.
