I need a book series with a simpler cast such as Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth.
What do you recommend with a simpler cast?
Maybe the Elizabeth Moon Paksenarrion books? Sheepfarmer's Daugher
, Deed of Paksenarrion
, and Oath of Gold
. I enjoyed those when I read them years ago and I also see she has a couple of new ones set in that world I need to investigate (Oath of Fealty
, Kings in the North
I had the same problem with G.R.R. Martin. He doesn't follow his characters or has too many of them to follow and he doesn't have a coherent plot, IMHO. I got lost and gave up which is a shame because I loved the first book.
