Hi everyone! I'm looking for something to read this summer, preferably fantasy cuz I need something to hold me over till frickin George R.R. Martin finishes the next installment of ASOIAF! I never liked fantasy before but since reading ASOIAF, GRRM has set the bar way too high for me. The politcal intrigue and low-key fantasy elements are what I love most about the books. I just finished reading Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder and found the protagonist to be a blatant Mary-Sue. I can't believe a reviewer on Amazon compared it to ASOIAF. Not even close. Does anyone have suggestions? Please not something where there is a Chosen One who is destined to have super magical powers to save the world, blah, blah because that's just...ew.
