Fav Fantasy Stand Alones

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a genre freebie so I though I would do an update of a post I did around this time last year which is my favourite fantasy stand alones! I love stand alone fantasy books and I feel now-a-days they are quite rare to come across, as there are mostly series or duologies in this genre. 

These are 5 more of my Fav Fantasy Stand Alones:

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho I loved the lore and the legends woven into the storyline. The tales of the previous Gumiho’s and how the correlate back to Miyoung was fascinating. The Korean culture was another factor I really enjoyed reading about. It definitely made the experience more interesting and unique.

42133479._SX318_

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant – This book really had me on the edge of my seat. Mira Grant definitely didn’t shy away from making this very dark and killing off the characters when it suited the plot.

34523174

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson – The whole premise and concept of the book was really refreshing and original to me. I liked the build up of mystery and the many twists and turns the plot goes through. I world was rich with culture and I just loved that it’s based around these great libraries. 

43358884._SY475_

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young – The plot of the book was quite simple but I was so engaged and entertained that it was easily overlooked! It was fast paced, rich with lore and culture and I loved the Viking aspect I thought it was fresh and original, unlike anything I’ve read in a very long time.

34726469

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody – There was a real sense of urgency and suspense woven throughout the story line which kept me highly engaged in the book. The stakes were always at an all-time high and trying to figure out who was behind everything was very entertaining!
