Good books. Pick em up if you like the Black Magician series.

Better than the Age of five series in my opinion. Book 1, the ambassador's mission: Amazon. If you're not picky about standalone books or trilogies, I would recommend more or less all of his books. Besides the mistborn trilogy, he just released a novel set in the mistborn universe, a few hundred years after Mistborn ended. It's called The Alloy of Law, and is a mix of wild wild west and mistborn magic. I liked it a lot, although I think it's the weakest book Sanderson has written so far.
But it's still very enjoyable and far better than much of the fantasy mush you could find in any local bookstore.

The Alloy of Law: Amazon. It's called Warbreaker, and features a pretty damn cool magic system, with some pretty damn cool characters. A close second would be Elantris, also a very good book, however there's less magic and more story in this one. Still, I've read it at least 5 times and flipped through it so often the pages have started falling out. Next, as Tragar points out, there's the Stormlight Archive series. Brandons new epic 10 book series. So far, he's written the first, which I think is his best work yet. You can not go wrong here. The only downside is the wait for the next book.

It's just that good! A series of books following a coming of age story of a mid 20s guy, who aspires to be a great painter, but who finds himself in unlucky circumstances. The setting looks somewhat like the french renaissance era. I liked the series a lot, eventhough it's not groundbreaking. He's a good writer and the story has a nice flow. In book 3 the story gets a little boring though, but it picks up in the end.
I would very much recommend this series. The magic system is more along the lines of what I would call mind-magic. Magic is internal and not something you draw in from the outside. Very much like the magic of the black magician trilogy.
Magic based upon discipline, ability and will is way cool! Book 1, Imagar: Amazon.

Modesitt Jr. Justin Shier: Amazon. Justin Shier: Books Both stories are set in out time, featuring magic, lots of humor and irony, and best of all, a good story. Age of the Five is set in a universe overseen by a pantheon of five gods the Circle who are the only apparent survivors of the War of the Gods. Before this war, it is understood that hundreds of gods existed on Earth. The Five control the destiny of the northern half of the world through a priesthood known as the White the Circle's five representatives in the human world, Ithania. In southern Ithania live opponents of the White, who claim to worship five different gods known as the Five.
Both factions vie for control over their opponents, and eventually engage in war. Auraya protagonist is chosen to be a White. Beginning with diplomatic missions, she later moves on to fighting in a major battle between the north and the south. She discovers she has innate powers far exceeding those of her peers; it later turns out that she is a potential new Wild a group of immortal sorcerers who have been persecuted by the will of the gods.
Later in the series the Wilds are discovered to be at the final stage before godhood, and they discover a way to kill the existing pantheon of gods. Throughout the series Auraya's attitude towards her gods changes from obedience to distrust to hatred, as she realizes their moral defects. In the end, the pantheon are trapped by the Wilds, whereupon one of the Gods commits suicide killing all the other gods too.
The epilogue reveals that humanity spends the next fifty years warring in the power vacuum left by the gods until a new religion with a single, all-powerful god, the Maker is adopted by the Sennon emperor to keep the peace. After the War of the Gods in which many deities were killed , only six gods were left alive.
Following the suicide of the sixth Sorli the remainder established themselves as gods of Ithania, creating two rival traditions to worship them: the Pentadrians and the Circlians. Assuming different names and images for each religion, the Five spent their time playing games with humanity, pitting the religions against each other and convincing each faith that the other was heretical.
The Five were known as the Circle in the Circlian religion, and as the Five to the Pentadrians; they were represented by the White in the Circlians, and the Voices of the Gods to the Pentadrians. The Five were killed when six Wilds surrounded them, creating a void.

The story is good, but not as good as the first trilogy of hers I read, the Black Magician trilogy. August 7, - Published on Amazon. Bottom Line: Try before you buy Really neat idea for this series..
