Top Ten Tuesday #13: Underrated Fantasy Authors


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish blog. This week’s theme is Top Ten Underrated Books or Authors in X genre. For the genre, I choose fantasy (although some of these books are historical fantasy)! I am organizing by author, then listing all the books I have read by them (note when I say “author of” that they have often written many more books). Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel and Court Duel, along with Maria V. Snyder, author of the Poison Study trilogy and many others, go without saying.

10.) Cassandra Rose Clarke, author of The Assassin’s Curse

9.) Monica Furlong, author of Juniper and Wise Child

8.) Martine Leavitt, author of Keturah and Lord Death

7.) Patricia C. Wrede, author of Sorcery & Cecilia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot, and the Enchanted Forest Chronicles

6.) Vivian Vande Velde, author of Heir Apparent and User Unfriendly 


5.) Elizabeth C. Bunce, author of Star Crossed and Liar’s Moon

4.) Robin McKinley, author of The Hero and the Crown, The Blue Sword, Beauty, and The Rose Daughter

3.) Juliet Marillier, author of Wildwood Dancing and Cybele’s Secret

2.) Sharon Shinn, author of The Safe Keeper’s Secret, The Truth-Teller’s Tale, The Dream-Maker’s Magic, and General Winston’s Daughter

1.) Tanith Lee, author of Wolf Tower, Wolf Star, Wolf Queen, and Wolf Wing (The Claidi Journals series)
