Whenever the topic of world-building comes up, one author always comes to mind. I tried to look through the books I've read so far this year and what I read in 2014 to come up with something more recent so I'm not always giving the same old tired answer. But in 5 years I haven't found a world that I've enjoyed more than the one Wilson created in the Tairen Soul series. It's a complex, fascinating world that is beautiful, magical, and dangerous. Tairen beasts soar through the skies shooting flames and armies of Fey warriors battle their mage adversaries with deadly weapons and powerful magic. From the kingdom of immortal elf Seers, to the magical paradise of the Fading Lands, and the dark forests of Eld, I enjoyed every moment of the world Wilson created. She's an amazing author and this is an amazing series.
