  1. I wonder why there is so much “dark” and “shadow” in fantasy novels....Interesting. Would older titles be different?

    1. I'm honestly not sure, as I would guess it also depends a bit on sub-genre, but there is "The Return of the King" by Tolkien.

  2. I agree with Deb above me - I know that so many fantasy novels have a dark theme/setting, but yikes at some of these titles. They depress you before you ever open the book. And I say that as a lover of fantasy!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

    1. Ha, I see what you mean and there is quite a few books that is a bit dark. If it is to any comfort, I'm a fantasy lover too.
