Having syfy fantasy withdraws

Post by NerdGirl91 » 01 Apr 2017, 12:50

First off I'm very new here so hello everyone! I'm Roxanna and am a book lover that no one in my immediate family understands. I'm not surrounded by other book lovers at home so it was wonderful to find you all.

So my favorite series currently are, The Anita Blake Series by Laurell K Hamilton, The League by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Dark-Hunters Also by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I'm looking for another author similar to them, with or without the erotic nature. I'm drawn more by the plots, adventure, and syfy themes of the books.

The science fiction fantasy books have always been my favorite. The way an author can take you into this entirely new world and suck you into it to the point you feel it could be real is the best! After reading a Dark-Hunter novel I'm looking for demi-gods in my neighborhood. After reading a League book I can imagine the other worlds in the galaxy. After I read about Anita and her sexy vampires and werewolves, every attractive man becomes one too. That's the type of books I love, the ones that make you believe.

So any recommendation of similar, books, authors, or series would be appreciated!

THANKS! :D

Maybe you could give The Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, and White) by Ted Dekker a try. I loved all three of them myself.

I Loved that series! It's on my bookshelf. I recently bought another series by Ted Dekker that I haven't started yet! Great suggestion though and anyone who reads this forum should give The Circle Trilogy a try. Well worth the read.

Try Linnea Sinclair. One of my favourite authors in that genre. Also Alexandra Ivy.

Tried the Black Dagger Brotherhood series? JR Ward is an amazing author!! Also, try Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. Good female lead and a lot of great humor in it too!!

Have you read Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1) by Patricia Briggs, Full Moon Rising (Riley Jenson Guardian #1) by Keri Arthur or The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) by Gena Showalter?

Moon Called sounds familiar. I'll have to see if I read it or not but the rest I have not. I'll add them to my list to check out! Thanks!

The thing you should know is that Fantasy is one genre, while Science Fiction is a different one.
The two are quite distinct.
Science fiction deals with the possible, the science being explained by it's future setting. The details must be possible within the realms of physics at the very least, eventually.
Fantasy fiction deals with the never possible, flights of fancy that have no place in the world of science.
So which is it that you want recommendations for?

I disagree with you but in your terms I would say I have a love for the science fiction.

So maybe you have recommendations for both categories.

There are no such things as werewolves, vampires and other monsters, they are flights of fantasy.
If you want a good Science Fiction book try one of Asimov's robot series they are great

Love the sci fi genre theme especially stemming from such Genesis focused originity. I'm at work upon the ideal list that will expand internal mind theory. Fiction branch of this vein takes many slots per such unique effort. Heinlein's endeavor through dystopic platform has held most memorative imprintation for me.
