Author has written 8 stories for Fantasy, and Mythology.

--A sample of books I like--

Mistborn Series, Age of Fire Series, the Ender's Game Series, Warbreaker, Misery by King, The Stormlight Archive, the Bartimaeus Trilogy,the Temeraire series, Jurassic Park and the others by MC, Runelords, Name of the Wind, Wheel of Time, the Leviathan - Behemoth - Goliath trilogy and the Eli Monpress series for starters. I'm pretty much a fantasy sort of guy.
