For the second book that I am picking it’s probably one you don’t know well. (I have a WHOLE stash of 1980’s/1990’s fantasy that I love.) You guys are going to hate me by the end.
The Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling was introduced to me years ago by a good friend. Their taste was spot on in regards to this series. It has all the epic fantasy elements that I love. AND it’s queer!!! What is not to love about that? (Keep in mind, this was started in 1996, so there are some parts that might be problematic today). The most recent book in the series came out in 2014.
Here’s the Goodreads Series Page.
I absolutely adored this series when I read it, and it’s fun, campy and pretty old fantasy along the lines of Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind et al.
If you read it and like it let me know!
