Therealbadkitty Iron Fey and the Wolves of Mercy Falls are not second world fantasies


Therealbadkitty Same with Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Divergent/Insurgent.


message 4: by Allan (new)

Allan some of these books are good, and a lot of them aren't (in my opinion), far to many books with female leads which puts off a lot of male readers e.g. ME also i think a few of these books listed have been put under the wrong genre/tags and shouldn't be here to start with


message 5: by Parker (new)

Parker J Divergent and Hunger games first off are not fantasy and second off are not second world...
Also Clockwork angel, animal farm, and The wolves of Mercy Falls aren't Second World.

Going through the list, there are quite a few books that don't belong here.

Same with the Old Kingdom books by Garth Nix.


message 8: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Please note; Dystopian novels are NOT fantasy nor are they second world books at all.
