What is you guys' favorite fantasy book/series? I love when a book has: 1.) a very creative and interesting world 2.) very creative and interesting power or magic systems 3.) dynamic characters that have flaws and real personalities rather than cliche cut-outs 4.) a "chosen one" who still has to earn his/her powers and work hard to unlock their potential rather than some deus ex machina granting god-mode status to them in an instant But I hate when a book has: 1.) too many fantasy cliches (I realize that this genre is inherently cliched but I like when the author handles recurring fantasy plot characteristics in unique ways) 2.) overdramatics 3.) gary stus/ mary sues 4.) too much romance, admiring beauty, every character is beautiful, storybook romance, unrealistically perfect witty exchanges feel free to mention your favorite even if it doesn't match what i like tho!
