I like reading what I call "High Fantasy" and Historical Fiction. My definition of "High Fantasy" are the books where it is an imaginary world, maybe with some magic and the odd mythical creature, but not scores of different races (elves, dwarves etc - a la Tolkien).


I've just finished Kushiel's Dart, a first novel by Jacqueline Carey, and I enjoyed it so much that I immediately began its sequel, Kushiel's Chosen. I've also got a soft spot for both Thomas Covenant trilogies by Stephen R. Donaldson, but I think they may be a little too "fantastic" to fit your definition of "high fantasy." The Jacqueline Carey novels are set in a clearly recognizable alternate version of Europe, and I suspect that you would enjoy them. --Bob
