As a writer of fantasy, I like to read it too. With one of my Christmas gift cards, I bought the entire Crimson Shadow series by R. A. Salvatore (on sale, of course). I really enjoyed another book by him (The Highwayman), so I decided it wasn’t much of a risk to buy the entire series. So far, I wasn’t wrong. The characters are well done and the story moves. Although the coming-of-age story tends to be overdone in the fantasy genre, the Crimson Shadow is a fresh take on this type of story. I think it’s a keeper.
