I’ve met a few wonderful people who’re very new to reading fantasy. I adore giving book recommendations and I love fantasy. Fantasy is my primary genre to read, I write urban fantasy, it’s a thing. Now it can be really hard to break into a new genre, there’s so much there, and all those sub-categories and sub-genres, it’s hard! It can also be expensive. You want to try new things, but how do you know if it’s worth $4?
That’s where this list comes in! I have put together a list of permafree fantasy books, all of which are the first in a series, so you can explore this wonderful genre without fear! I have either read, or am familiar with the author of, all of these books. Some of them are boxsets so I’m only familiar with a couple of the authors by name. There is a reasonable range of fantasy types here, but there is a strong urban fantasy leaning, because that’s my love. You will however find a bit of steampunk and some epic fantasy in there too.
Without further ado, the list! Now I’ll admit that this really is just a list with the title and link because I don’t have it in me to format all of those blurbs and covers. The links go to Amazon.com.
Now definitely without any further ado, the list!
