Reblogged from The Loaded Bookshelf:

Hello Booklikers!

 

I'm hoping you all can help me out.  I'm interested in seeking out more adult fantasy novels.  Though I read a fair amount of YA fantasy, I've been slower to find adult fantasy.  Among the authors I really like are Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, George R. R. Martin, and Lois McMaster Bujold.  I also like romantic fantasy authors like Catherine Asaro and Maria V. Snyder.  Any recommendations?

 

A few caveats:

 

1. I'm squeamish about a few sex things--I'm turned off by a lot of promiscuity by the protagonists or spouse swapping, or anything else that could be construed as "icky." Very technical term, I know. For instance, from what I've heard, Jacqueline Carey's books aren't for me.

 

2. I'm not big on fairy tale re-tellings, though I do appreciate some.

 

3. If it's really unrelentingly dark, I need to be warned. I can deal with it if I have some idea what to expect.

 

4. Commercially published works only, please!
