Just a follow up on Steerswoman series. HIGHLY recommended

“Of course, the best example of hard science fiction to date is Rosemary Kirstein’s Steerswoman series (The Steerswoman, The Outskirters’ Secret, The Lost Steerman, and The Language of Power). What at first appears to be a straightforward fantasy setting, in which wise-woman Rowan finds herself pitted against a community of (generally quite disagreeable) wizards, is soon revealed to be nothing of the sort. In fact, Rowan’s world is far more alien and interesting than most secondary-world fantasies. Rather than a Tolkienian struggle between good and evil as such, the heart of the series is science itself, the process of unravelling the true nature of the world despite all the barriers placed in our way.”

book 5 and 6 are in the works.

Hopefully not another Name of the Wind fiasco. Waiting for ages for Volume 3 ...it's due for a TV series and Book 3 not finished ...... :nono: Sound familiar?

The series has the potential of GoT tho not the scope. More a Potter scale but terrific visual potential and needs the correct leads.
