There are two whom I believe to be the best writers I have ever come across: Rick Riordan and Cinda Williams Chima. Rick has written the 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians' as well as the sequel series 'Heroes of Olympus'. Cinda has written the 'Heir Trilogy' and the 'Seven Realms Series'.

 

They are both AMAZING writers! I've read their books multiple times!

I've been exploring GRRM's other books as well and discovered Fevre Dream, a book about vampires. It's just wonderful how, at first, one of the protagonists was borderline villanious and in the end, I couldn't fangirl enough. Joshua York in a pristine white suit and hat, OH GOD YES.

 

If you're looking for good vampire books, Fevre Dream it is. It's like a crossover of Mark Twain and Bram Stroker. tongue.gif

Several favorites in no particular order...

 

Bertrice Small - historical and modern-day romance/erotica, who's earned my respect for actually getting the history parts mostly correct in her historicals. She's even included a bibliography of sorts in some of them, for the convenience of any readers especially interested in exploring more about a particular culture and time period.

 

C.S. Lewis - Narnia. Enough said. biggrin.gif

 

Mercedes Lackey - the Valdemar books and others as well, she has the skill of creating a world with just enough detail to make it seem real, without so much as to get bogged down in the minutiae.

 

L.M. Montgomery - I still re-read the Anne of Green Gables series every so often.

 

Torey Hayden - nonfiction books detailing her work with children with various mental and emotional issues (often related to abuse) and how she managed to help set at least some of them on the road to living normal lives.

I especially love historical novels, and my favourite authors are:

 

Ellis Peters (Edith Pargeter) with her series of Brother Cadfael chronicles

 

Candace Robb, with her series about Owen Archer's adventures

 

Italian writer Valeria Montaldi, with her Il mercante di Lana, Il signore del falco, Il monaco inglese and Il manoscritto dell'imperatore

 

I also love C.S. Friedman and her science fiction / fantasy Coldfire Trilogy

My favorite author is Nalini Singh. She writes a psy series that I haven't read yet, but her guild hunter series is awesome. I don't want to get too into what it is about. But the main character is a vampire hunter(they dont kill them) that captures vamps and returns them to their owners(the angels). Well she gets hired by the archangel Raphael and ends up falling for him. Big stuff happens and she 'changes'. The author does a great job with her characters and you will fall head over heals for her angels and vamps.

Vincent Morthanos wub.gif

 

 

SUCH a vampy boy....

 

And as my scroll name Morth proves I'm a bit of a fan girl.

 

And want that surname he has rolleyes.gif

 

I don't want to marry him, even if he was real. I already have a special someone.

Then he had Alek throw away the Austro Hungrian Empire FOR A COMMONER FROM SCOTLAND

 

I got so mad I almost threw the book mad.gif gave the entire series back to the library at school and told them to burn these for BAD quality.

Austen & Shakespeare, is of course a must (if you ask me.)

Then there's the Bronte's, Margret Mitchell and Little Women series (can't remember the author though). Virginia Wolf & Sylvia Plath are nice too.

Toni Morrison.. yeah and a lot more.

Louisa May Alcott wrote the Little Women series, along with several other books that I like.

Currently, I really like Veronica Roth, but I’m pretty jumpy with books, series and writers. Anyways, like other people have said I was a huge fan of Erin Hunter in like third and fourth grade. I loved the Warriors series and when Seekers came out I was pretty obsessed, but unfortunately I never got to finish that series because like I said before I'm really jumpy, especially when I have to wait a while for a new book. Back on topic about authors, I also like Michael Grant (he wrote the Gone series).
