Fanasty Series Recommendaitons?

I love to read fantasy books. That's just me. I love magic, dragons, talking animals, and the whole genre. I'm looking for a new series, if someone could help me out that would be great. Preferably a female heroine, but not necessary. I have nothing against male herioines, but most of the time it's always the same. Save the damsel in distress type of deal...doesn't work for me. Yea that is generalizing a bit, but oh well...

I'm looking for something at a couple hundred pages. Other then that, I'm not to picky at all. I'm just looking for something with a good plot and some sustience. For the love of God...No Twilight or teenie bopper series like that please. I'm looking for much more character development then that. Okay, I lied I'm picky, but teenie bopper series cause nothing but annoying fan crazys that make me want have a constant set of reliable ear plugs at all times.

Anyways, good series with good characters, good plot, and good writing. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

Thank You!

The Dark Tower series by Stephen King... its actually more of a sy-fi/ fantasy, not scary. There are 7 books, the first one is the Gunslinger. The series is based upon an old poem by Robert Browning, published in 1852, “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came."

The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan is actually really lengthy, but super good!

I read the Forever series by Jude Deveraux,



It was pretty nice, about a girl with super powers fighting evils, I liked it, not very fancy but nice.

Hey there's one called 'Heroes of Valley' i forgot the author's name (googling will help). Its got a very unusal hero, not the dashing-damsel-in-distress-savior types. He's a bit of an outcast and has ana interesting story. You might want to give it a shot.

Terry Pratchett I haven't read, Tolkien I have. He's a little dry for me. I don't fully appreciate his style of writing just yet.



I don't really know, if I had to pick one probably Watership Down.



Yes, I do.



I have not read the Dune series.



Neil Gaiman is strange, but I like it.

Are you a fan of Terry Pratchett? or Tolkien?



What is your favorite book?



Did you like Potter?



Have read the Dune series?



I know the Eragon is a bit teeny, but it's a nice series as well.



How do you like Neil Gaiman?
