Greetings All, hopefully someone can help me in my search. I'm a HUGE spy fan, however, I want to give that a break and try something new. I've come up with some criteria, and hopefully your recommendations can meet them. If You Select Sci-fi or Fantasy, the book must be a series. Choose one of the categories and then recommend a book. If you recommend: Fantasy: I don't want the generic medieval/Tolkien rip-off. No Elves, Dwarves or Castles. I want something original, and more mature orientated. No YA, and no fantasy set in modern day. Science-fiction: No military SF. I get enough of the bad-ass solider kicking ass from BSG, Stargate/Trek etc. I've tried to read The Lost Fleet but just couldn't bring myself to finish it. It's nothing against the author but the main character type is repetitive . No time travel either. I'm leaning toward space opera, and I know it's hard to find SO that isn't also military. Thriller: I'm looking for the average person caught in a conspiracy type thriller. Right now, I'm eyeing The Girl on the Train, and seriously considering the purchase. Any other of those types of novels is great.
