Some of my favorite Science Fiction authors:
Mercedes Lackey- my all time favorite author. She wrote Fairy Godmother -a popular book. There is an entire series in which she puts a spin on the characters in fairy tales.. She write things from space science fiction to fantasy fiction. Her Heralds of Valdemar series is really worth a read or two. The Elemental Masters series has strong female characters that use magic in London in the 1800s to early 1900s. She has written much, much more. I have three shelves of her books. The newest books are The Hunter series. I like her books because she puts strong female characters in interesting roles.
Anne McCaffrey/Todd McCaffrey – Dragons Of Pern series. A fantasy series that involves the settlement of a planet that runs into difficulties and has to come up with a way to change or save its way of life. Strong female characters in this series, also. This author has passed on, however her son Todd has carried on the Pern novels. She has also written several other series of books. The first book I read by this author was The Rowan. This blossomed into an entire series about a family with special brain powers. I think I have read every book she has written by now.
Terry Goodkind- Sword of Truth series. This series is one of my all time favorites. My sister gave me The Sword of Truth Book 1. I put it away for a year and did not touch it. I found the book while looking for something to read. When I finished it I went to the bookstore for books #2 and #3. I read every book in the series and then anxiously waited for the next in the series to come out. There are 16 books in this series and I hope more to come. I love the main characters Richard and Kahlan. They are put through all kinds of hell and damnation in the series. If you like a good adventure ….
I am currently reading Mercedes Lackey’s A Scandal in Battersea. I have the two Dragon Prophecy books to read next. I am off to read my books.
