I'm preparing to go on something of a kindle binge again, anyone got any recommendation for good fantasy novels?

So far I'm looking at:

The Mistborn trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson
Krondor's Sons, by Raymond E. Feist
The Magicians trilogy, by Lev Grossman
and The First Law trilogy, by Joe Abercrombie

So far I'm looking at:

The Mistborn trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson
Krondor's Sons, by Raymond E. Feist
The Magicians trilogy, by Lev Grossman
and The First Law trilogy, by Joe Abercrombie

Of the books mentioned I've read only Mistborn. I'm don't gush over the series, but think it's okay. I've read a good many Feist "Midkemia" books, but the one you list doesn't ring a bell. I find the Feist series rather uneven, some titles being quite fine, some not so much. I've heard good things about the Abercrombie but never read it. The Grossman is unknown to me.

As to other fantasy recommendations, I'm not sure where to start. Sticking to more or less conventional epic fantasy books I've read and loved, these come readily to mind:

...Fionavar Tapestry, Guy Gavriel Kay (a trilogy)
...Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, Ted Williams (a four book trilogy, the final book being split in two parts, at least in the edition I own.)
...The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Stephan Donaldson. (I'm a bit leery of recommending this series not due to any qualms of my own, but because it tends to be very polarizing, some greatly admiring it, some loathing it, and relatively few in between. That said, if you are an admirer I can easily recommend the Second Chronicles..., but NOT the much later written Last Chronicles... which I find an utter disappointment.)

I'll think on this some more and maybe post other recommendationis.
Callidus Thorn
Krondor's Sons is Prince of the Blood and The King's Buccaneer. So far I've only read the Riftwar Saga and the Empire Trilogy, so they're next on the list.

Fionavar Tapestry isn't available on Kindle until the eighth of next month, but the write up and reviews on Amazon look promising, so I've added that to my list, along with Memory, Sorrow and Thorn. Thanks for those.

They had one with what looked like a saw blade on an arm with a boom that used to come down on the other robot and spin, cutting them up and mashing them - and it was fast chasing them around, too! It doesn't get any better than that!

Callidus Thorn
259 was just a vertical spinner, albeit possibly the most powerful one they had back then. It hit like a truck, and was seriously cool just for that, but what you're describing with the saw blade on an arm sounds more like Dead Metal.

Currently battling the police regarding my new license. They want a reason for my fifth gun even though it'll be my fourth as one will be traded in. And we're talking hunting rifles here, not AK-47s or Uzis. Ugh. I hate this fascist country mad.gif

If you marry Taylor Swift you will automatically become a citizen.

Then your citizenship will be in Korea; (if they have that law, which is doubtful) - and they will not let you have any guns being as you are not a National citizen.

My suggestion would be to marry Taylor Swift for the citizenship; then move the Korean girls in as part of an (albeit rudimentary) "Mirocu's Foreign Exchange Program." Send Taylor to Thorney for your part of the exchange. You get your citizenship; your guns; and your Korean girls!!!!

What? You said you wanted suggestions!
