Since this is a community of readers, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good fantasy novel/series! I love the genre, so of course some of my favorite Choicescript games were things like The Lost Heir Trilogy, Choice of the Deathless, Champion of the Gods, Pendragon Rising, Saga of the North Wind, etc. My problem is, I also love romantic subplots in those types of novels or games, and well-done ones are hard to find! And the thing is, I hate the genre of fantasy romance, at least with those bodice-rippers that don’t have that strong of an overall plot to carry the romance (or call it what you will, the sex scenes).
Have you read a great fantasy series that also had a great romance you happened to like? I feel like I’ve covered a lot of the greats or the classics, so I’m good in terms of Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, Robin McKinley, Tamora Pierce, Sherwood Smith, Sharon Shinn, Tolkien, etc. Thanks for any suggestions you may give me!
And if you have any Choicescript games in mind that fit the bill too, please point me their way!
