Fantasy of color

Fantasy and high fantasy novels that are racially diverse, whether with main characters or prominently featuring poc. Asian knights, black magicians, brown elves, all that good stuff.

Positive representation only! This means no poc as thieves, street walkers, bloodthirsty savages, or any other stereotypes. A special thanks to everyone who has helped contribute! :)

Clare O'Beara I have added a few prehistorical fiction books, which fit the POC bill, because these people respected shamans who saw visions, and saw the actions of gods or elementals in natural occurrences. If this is not appropriate, feel free to remove.

I imagine that prehistorical books might feature non-white characters, but I'm not sure what their religious beliefs have to do with the color of their skin.

Clare O'Beara Making the books fantasies.


message 4: by Mz_gemini (new)

Mz_gemini In R.L Stine's book, "Fear Street Seniors: No Answer", Clarissa Turner (a black girl) is the main character/protagonist. She's also a POSITIVE representation.

Fiona Hurley Do anti-heroes count, or does that break the "positive representation" rule? I was thinking about adding Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch, which features a multi-racial pirate crew under the command of a black woman. Of course they are villains and thieves, but so is almost everyone else in the series.
