Our Five Favorite Comfort Fantasies Reads

We love a good sprawling fantasy epic as much as the next person–those stories are loads of fun, and bring intensity, drama, and Big Feelings to our hearts. BUT, some days it’s nice to crack open a book that makes you feel as though you’ve been wrapped in the warmest blanket, one to turn to for pure, wholesome escapism when the weight of the world weighs heavy on your shoulders. Here are 5 fantasy books to seek out for a warm reprieve.

In the Shadow of Lightning: A Map of the World

In the Shadow of Lightning is the first in an expansive new epic fantasy series from epic fantasist Brian McClellan (of Powder Mage Trilogy fame)!

And! What’s better for navigating a dangerous land than a map? We’re sharing the interior map that you’ll find within In the Shadow of Lightning right here!
