I just wanted to write an update on the recommendations that you guys gave me. I'm some 200 pages in Der Weg der Könige
. So far so good. I'm enjoying it now. The beginning is a little rough for my tastes, with this prelude-prologue-chapters structure. But once the chapters are on their way it soon feels like home. The world is well crafted, rich in details and I like the prose. It isn't heavy à la Tolkien, the descriptions are abundant but not tiresome. I like the unique fantasy things that were introduced so far and the characters are well depicted. Thank you again for the recommendation, F4wk35!
CF, I was the other thay in my usual Bookstore (looking for some inspiration for some Christmas gifts) and I found 3 or 4 PR's Silberbände
(2 NEOs and two no-NEOs). I don't believe that getting normal Heftleins can be an easy task, but these recopilation books are easy enough to find online and in most stores. Now I've made some research (mostly wikis) but there are so many things PR-related that I find myself a little overwhelmed by the task... What would you recommend for a beginner? I know "the beginning would be the easy answer", but sometimes isn't the right answer...
