I think it was about 2 years ago, was on a week long trip and found and finished a whole series. A few days ago I remembered about it and decided to reread it. Only problem? What was it's name? Who was the author? Name of the main character?
I know the world was made up of island continents and I remember reading the author having been inspired by Japan's history somewhat.
One of the main characters was a swordsman trained with some monks. There was magic. There were farms in the countryside run by nobles, farms who get burned down. And I think there were some demons involved too.
Another one of the main characters I believe was female, somewhat chosen one, possessed some sort of talisman that protected against the demons. She was in her teens.
Names I believe sounded somewhat japanese.
There is also a part about a different continent where jungles and darkness resides and the city colony there doesn't fare well if memory serves...
I know this is awfully unhelpful but maybe someone who's read these books reads this and realises my useless details add up to a book or at least an author.
I also remember the same author having a different series inspired by the Scotts i think.


It's a well known author i think but not sure...

Sounds similar to the stuff I read but I don't recognize it.

Do you remember how many books were in the series or a characters name?

edit: first guess would be Earthsea but it's really tenuous at best.

chosen one sounds like the Shanarra series.

The Hobbit? Lord of the Rings? The Belgariad? You've described pretty much EVERY series with medieval-style swords & sorcery & adventure. :laugh:

Don't know about the Japanese-sounding character names, though...

Kresley Cole - "Immortals After Dark" book series? Just a guess.
Did it include vampires, valkyries and other mythical creatures?
Books that contain magic and swords are usually a genre itself "s&s" or "swords & sorcery".


Dont know if this is of any help, but if not maybe just read a new series of books? :)

Cheers

It might be worth searching google images for the keywords and seeing if you can find the cover.
