Every year, there is a slew of new, popular titles coming out into the open. Sometimes they’re old and sometimes they’re new, but they’re always well-read books that people are talking about. Here are the current top five recommended fantasy trilogies for the beginning of 2019.
Orphaned by an assassin’s blade, Besmir spends his youth on the fringes of society. He grows into a hunstman of some note, suitable to put food on the Duke’s table, if unfit to join the meal. His simple, meager life is thrown into chaos when he finds himself approached by Zaynorth, an illusion mage who has come in search of Besmir, bearing a remarkable truth: the huntsman is far more than he knows himself to be.
A Hunstsman’s Fate is an epic fantasy saga of breathtaking scope, following the rise of a man of humble beginnings across time as he shapes not only his own destiny, but the fates of kingdoms, worlds, and even the gods themselves.
Includes the first three standalone novels of the series: Heart of a Huntsman, Duel with a Demoness, and The Ire of Eloran.

Those might be tall tasks for anyone, but Corina is a Possessor. And there hasn’t been one of those in the world for centuries. Until now.
