Recommended epic fantasy books

What is epic fantasy? Well, the word epic is defined as an exceptionally long and arduous task or activity and this helps to understand what an epic fantasy might contain. In The Lord of the Rings we have Frodo's journey to Mordor, in The Farseer Trilogy we have Fitz and the Fool's destiny to bring dragons back to the world. But it is not just about the journey, the quest or the task. It can also be the theme - The Malazan Book of the Fallen is epic both in scope and events. There is no correct way to define epic fantasy but in our opinion, the fantastic books and series below belong to it. Read and enjoy.
