    All I want for Christmas is infinite time to read all those books. There’s a reason Chronos is the devil in the Marvel movies.

    Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay, Breeder by KB Hoyle, and The Retrieval Artist Series by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. My favorite science fiction and fantasy reads of the year

  3. Brie Donning says:

    I can say from experience that half those books are great.
    My recommendation is the Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight. A half blood who isn’t sure he has a soul, a young woman trained to serve an emperor who will kill her for not serving his gods, unique fantasy races, and family conflict. Not to mention a snarky prince, dragons, and side story reminiscent of Robin Hood.

    For sci-fi fans, I recommend at least the first Expanse book, Leviathan Wakes. It’s kind of tropey, but it’s edge of your seat space opera, detailing what happens once humanity has populated the solar system … and then somebody finds an alien microbe that starts going all Evolution on people. The second book, Caliban’s War, is really the best of the series, IMO. The alien microbe was just so perfectly, horrifyingly alien. That’s my favorite part about sci-fi.

    If you’re curious about Warhammer 40K stories, a good place to start in my opinion would be the Eisenhorn trilogy.

    If you might be interested in manga, here’re some recommendations.

    World Trigger–Earth is invaded by creatures from other dimensions, and a defensive force is set up to both combat the invaders and explore these other worlds. So far, there hasn’t been much exploring, but the story has been building up to it. Lots of combat training and real combat, though the mechanics of how the story handles the combat makes actually injuries a rare thing.

    My Hero Academia–Set in the modern day, but in a world where a majority of the population has genetic gifts or mutations, called quirks. Some people use their quirks to commit crimes, so there is the need for superheroes to fight them. The story focuses mostly on one boy and his schoolmates as they learn to take on the role of heroes. Lots of fighting, and the fights get pretty intense at times, too.
