Hello guys. I have aways been a huge fan of medieval fantasy books. The Hobbit was the first good book I read, and it got me hooked from the beginning to the end. After that, I obviously bought Lord of the Rings, and other books like Dragonlance, etc. This is the setting that I love the most, and I am pretty sure most of my books will be based on that. The point is, inside this genre, we have different settings as well. For example, Conan is a fantasy novel, but much more dark, violent, and grim. The same goes with the Game of Thrones books. And as an avid gamer, I would like to mention the Dark Souls series and the manga Berserk (for those who knows it). The way they portray the medieval world is much more realistic than how Tolkien and other authors such as JK Rowling portray their fantasies. There are no fairies dancing around the lakes, nor a handsome knight will save the princess if she is in danger. Instead, if the princess is kidnapped, there is a very high chance that she will be raped. Enemies have their heads cut off and attached to warbanners, corrupt kingdoms steal, kill, and torture the commoners. There is a huge lot of betrayals and back stabbing in politics, and not everything is black and white. People can have psychological traumas, and even be addicted to drugs or alcohol or even prostitution. It's a huge contrast to the other kind of fantasy we know as portrayed in Tolkien's books, with beautiful elven ladies and princesses marrying beautiful princes, everything ends up allright in the end and the good aways win. There are unicorns, fairies, extremelly benign kings that portrays the fatherly figure of God, and etc. SO, after this wall of text, I wanted to question you guys. What is your favorite setting for fantasy? Do you guys prefer to read a light fantasy book like The Hobbit, or a dark fantasy story like Game of Thrones? And also, wich of these do you think will give me most chance of success in the market? I know thos is a very bold question, but I was just thinking about it and have no one to ask about it. Anyway, thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english!
