    C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia, there are seven installments, but not in order, you have to figure that out. They are very easy reading, because Lewis wrote them for his granddaughter, Lucy.

    The Dark Elf series by R. A. Salvatore is a very good read, and there is plenty to the story to keep you going. This is the first 3 books of several.

    Hi there. I'm the author of a new medieval fantasy book that you might like. The title is THE BLACKGLOOM BOUNTY. It's 445 pages of action, adventure, magic, mystery and mayhem. If you like Conan, LOTR or Harry Potter type books, this may be one you'll enjoy.

    Good luck, whatever you decide to read!

    THE BLACKGLOOM BOUNTY (eBook and hard cover)

    THE REGENTS OF RHUM (coming fall '07)

    Major Media Reviews:

    Publishers Weekly

    STARRED Review. A fast pace, sly humor, amusing dialogue and a richly researched background lift Baxley's fantasy, the first of a new series set in medieval Britain. When Merlin's long-ago apprentice Kruzurk Makshare (aka the Boozer) receives a dreamlike visitation from the legendary mage, he learns he must destroy another former apprentice, the villainous Seed of Cerberus. To do so will require a visit to the demon-guarded Blackgloom Keep. Enter young Daynin McKinnon, who discovers a curious rune-covered headstone, which may be the fabled Blackgloom Bounty, and brings it to Kruz's attention. Kruz believes it will provide entry into the fortress, while Daynin hopes the sale of the stone will restore his family's fortunes. The colorful cast of good guys and ne'er-do-wells includes the Pictish ghost of Brude McAlpin liberated from his tomb, assorted pursuing Caledonians and a bemused Prior Bede, whose monastery serves as a hiding place for the Blackgloom Bounty. Suitable for fantasy enthusiasts of all ages.

    Check out the Shakespearean play "Julius Caesar". It indeed is worth reading. Each character relates to the kind of people we often find in our own society. If you happen to be a newcomer in the Shakespearean world then I would suggest you to look for an abridged version of the book than the original text.

    give Piers Anthony's Incrarnations of Immortality a try. There's a little thought behind them, both philosophical and intricate plotting, and they are quite entertaining as well. The first is called On A Pale Horse.

    Tamora Pierce's Lioness Quartet, Protector of the Small, Circle of Magic, and The Circle Opens quartets. They are really good.

    Read the series by George R. R. Martin and the series by Terry Goodkind. Martin is the VERY best.
