Books That Don't Age Well Books that are entertaining when you are, say, 10 and that are written specifically for a younger audience. When you put the adult spectacles on, however, these books are pretty crappy. Maybe the book was good during a certain era, but modern fantasy has evolved to a new level, and the book is still stuck in the stoneage.
Overrated Books With Undeserved Hype Commercially succesful books that took the world by storm but that were actually pretty mediocre when you look closely at them. While these books are not terrible there are much worse out there , they are good examples of commercially successful bad books. The books don't necessarly have to be huge commercial successes.
They could be highly praised by critics too, yet when you read them, something doesn't add up. Terribly Written Books Say what you want about the other books, the books that fall in this category are, God forbid, straight-out terrible books. There is no saving grace to these books, and watching paint dry is more entertaining than reading one of these. This would be the category of the truly terrifyingly terrible books.
We'll also toss dull and completely unoriginal books in here as well. If you have to read "bad fantasy books" work your way through all the other categories of bad before starting on books in this category! These are books that really polarize the readership. People usually either adore these books or utterly and viciously detest them.
Quite a few of the good books seem to fall into this category. There are a few big, poplular fantasy books that have this label applied to them. So while the series started off 'strong', some of the sequels failed to live up to expectations, and now the series has been "ruined" for some people.
- Warhammer 40,000/Tactics/Renegades and Heretics(7E).

Now, while it's true that a book you appreciated when you were new to the fantasy genre or when you were say, a kid, might not read the same way when you've read better books in the genre, or when you've grown up, so to speak. This book might not be a terribly written book of course, but the plot might be juvenile, and the characters crappy cardbord cutouts. I feel, however, that a good book is always a good book, no matter what age the reader.
A good story transcends all ages. I have not just randomly tossed a bunch of books onto this list -- there are some very compelling reasons why books end up here. And if you have any of your own particular stinker reads, please share them -- they may be fodder for the next worst fantasy book update. For those angry folks out there, keep in mind this is MY opinion. It's subjective, and I'm sure not everyone will agree with me.
If you love a book on the list, fair's fair -- different strokes for different folks. However, I want to establish a "baseline" for what's good and what's not in the fantasy genre. And this, folks, is my baseline. But remarks about the books on this list are open for discussion in the comment section. A bit of a disclaimer: I hold no punches when I verbally trash books and authors on this list.
This is my personal outlet for that pent-up rage that's been marinating in my brain all these years from reading bad book after bad book. So if you are a sensitive person who is easily offended, or if you don't want to see your beloved author verbally skewered to within an inch of his or her life, be warned that you might want to SKIP this list. Don't say I didn't warn you! There's a saying that "you shouldn't judge a book by its cover", but in the case of a Robert Stanek novel, you CAN judge by the cover.
This is self-published dreck of the worst sort. I normally wouldn't spend any time actually shouting out a self-published novel here except for the one fact: Stanek habitually games the online rating systems. A suspicious number of positive reviews have been posted at Amazon.
Rumor has it that Rob has been padding Amazon. After reading book one, it was immediately apparent after the first page that the rumor is true. Stanek is, quite simply, the worst author I have had the misfortune of reading. He possesses not a single atom of writing ability. Ill put it like this: Keeper Martins Tale evinces all the skill of an adolescent girl, writing her first creative piece on a prancing pony. Keep away from his books if you value your sanity. His prose is so bad, it'll make your eyes bleed.
Because of all this, Stanek wins The Best Fantasy Books award for being the worst fantasy author and writing the worst fantasy novels. In fact, I'll go one further. Stanek is not just a bad fantasy writer, he's the nemesis of the fantasy world, the Dark Lord of fantasy authors.
Please, if you see a Robert Stanek novel, run like hell, because you're risking your literary soul merely by opening the book. The Chronicles of Blood and Stone. Oh man, what can I say about this except that it's probably one of the worst written novels in the history of publishing, let alone fantasy. What happens when you blatantly copy a bad fantasy writer?
Simply, you write a really bad fantasy book. The only books Newcomb ever read were Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth and maybe a few badly written bondage novels. At least Goodkind can write ONE novel half decently which is more than Newcomb can claim by a few miles. The blurb on The Fifth Sorceress claims it is the epic fantasy of the year. While Newcomb certainly has a fertile imagination, it's fertile in the same way a sexually frustrated, disturbed teenage boy's might be.
We get sultry sorceress after sorceress whose only role in the story is to satisfy the author's fantasies about bad, bad, bad women in leather tights. If you are going to write soft porn scenes every ten pages, by golly at least make them GOOD sex scenes. Newcomb can't even manage to do that right. With page after page of painful exposition, Newcomb attempts to translate his pornographic fantasies into credible plot devices. I'm not even going to describe the insult to both women and the English language THAT attempt has birthed into the world.
His books are so riddled with cliches, it's no surprise Newcomb sinks to the bottom of the quality barrel. I can't tell you how offensive to your eyes it is to just look at a page written by this man. Look, it says something when the series even garnered its very own website about how bad it really is. And rarely will you ever see a book that gets hundreds of essay-sized one-star amazon reviews throughly bashing the novel every way since Sunday.
It took to about book five of this dreck before the publisher mercifully put Newcomb out of his writing misery. When that moment happened, I'm sure there were angelic choirs singing in full force. Woah, double kill! Some people might be wondering why bestselling author Terry Goodkind is missing from the top 25 best fantasy books.
This is one of the most "asked" questions emailed to me and left in the comments section on the top list. I've drastically updated this section to more solidly make my case, to all the Goodkind fanboys out there who've been leaving the hate mail in my inbox, about just WHY Sword of Truth is so very bad. I hope this helps show why I feel these books are bad, rather than just stating that they are. Well gents and ladies, I have been saving a special spot in the Worst Fantasy section for him. Wait, you tell me: He is a best seller. Yea, but then again so is Snooky from Jersey Shore.
Let's be clear: popularity does not equal quality. Even after a full year up here, Goodkind is still staying firmly planted at the number 3 spot, and I don't plan on moving him anytime soon, unless someone manages to top the level of drivel spewing forth from his pen. Though there are some new contenders for worst title, there are no real challengers just yet. Maybe next year will bring something new to the table. So Why is BadKind so Good.
Sorry, that came out wrong. Why is NoGoodkind so Good? Opps, sorry, he's so bad I'm getting my words twisted up here.
One more time: why is Goodkind so Bad? There we go! Seriously people, if you think Goodkind is the Second Coming of Christ to the fantasy genre, you haven't read any real fantasy books yet.

Don't ask me to add his name to any of the Best Book Lists, because I'm not going to. I'll admit that Goodkind's first few novels were kind of entertaining in a sick sort of way, but the entertainment soon got lost behind the sheer awfulness of the man's writing. The idea was good, but the problem is that Goodkind lacked the actual writing skills to translate ideas to paper.
He broke just about every 'don't do this when you're writing a novel' rule in this book. Heck, he probably even broke a few writing rules that haven't been invented yet! He's the Chuck Norris of the fantasy landscape, able to defeat every dark god without breaking a sweat. He's so full of altruistic goodness that he's got a halo, except when you disagree with him and he kills you.
Hell, he even goes all Chuck Norris in Book 8 on a bunch of unarmed farmer pacificists because they don't have his vision of moral clarity by not believing in absolute good and evil. So he slaughters these weak cowards and is continually praised for this over the course of the novel by Goodkind.
But wait, isn't killing people who disagree with you Fascism? Nooo, that couldn't be the case, since Goodkind is so enlightened. But wait, there is more badness to come. Oh yea, he's so bad and by baaad, I mean good that he rips a man's spinal cord out with his bare freaking hands -- you can practically hear the Mortal Kombat "Finish Him" voiceover in the background. Hell Yea! If that's not manly and badassism, I don't know what is. A few other godlike traits: he's super intelligent on top of being a hunky male model, he's got a princess-lover who's so pure and beautiful that even Jesus would have a hard'on, and he bashes in the skull of a seven-year-old bratty kid.
To delve into more of the hero's badism, let's sum it up a bit avoid this paragraph if you don't want to read spoilers the entire series:. Farm boy finds a super sword and becomes the super Seeker of Truth, basically a badass dimwit with the big, big sword who goes around stabbing bad guys or simply any character who actually has the gall to disagree with his -- cough Goodkind's-- philosophy which is in fact a badly written version of Ayn Rand's Fountainhead.
But wait, there's more to big ol' teddy bear Richard. You see, he's really also a hidden prince too, and a pretty damn handsum one at that. No but wait, he's also a Wizard. Did I forget to mention that he's also a War Wizard on top of being a regular wizard which is basically a Wizard 2. Oh, let's not forget about the part where he becomes KING ruler of an entire continent. Did I miss anything? Can't forget the other character: Kahland Amnell, Richards love interest princess and Mary Sue extraordinaire.
Forgetting anything else? Opps one more: one of the SOT villains is an evil chicken. Richard Rauhl is pretty much the fantasy version of Goku from Dragon Ball Z -- always just one step away from powering up to some new super ability to save the day. The only difference: replace the stupid endless posturing of the characters with endless plot-destroying Randism pontificating by Richard. I'd like to say it's a more intelligent series than an anime made for kids, but I dont' think I can even give the series that sort of credit.
Goodkind has a disturbing fascination with the domination and rape of women.
I mean you have to wonder about the guy when pretty much every page involves some sadistic torture and rape of yet another innocent and lovely woman. Man, we get it guy: lovely women need to be humiliated over and over in as many different ways as possible. Now stop writing about the same damn thing for 10, pages! Either way, enough of your boy fantasies please!
Now if only the public could be stabbed with that same Sword of Truth that Richard Rhaul carries around, the truth of how bad this series really is would be revealed to the world. Did I mention that the writing quality is bad, like atrociously bad with -ly adverbs thrown in before practically every single verb, horrible grammar, and a plot so full of holes that it sinks to the bottom of the quality barrel?
But by far the worst literary crime is Goodkind's penchant for pausing the story while he pontificates and pontificates and pontificates about the nature of good and evil through his characters. I mean, it gets absolutely ridiculous in the later books. The early books actually have the semblance of a plot and characters, but by the 6th book, something starts to go seriously wrong with the story threads, and Goodkind decides he's going to write his own version of The Fountainhead starring Richard, Kahland, and evil Emperor dude who wants to kill the world.
At one point I think I skipped something like 30 pages of Richard pontificating and the plot or story didn't miss a single beat. If you want to read Goodkind, you can save yourself a lot of pain and just skip straight to the source: read Ann Rynd's Fountainhead, the book that inspired the Sword of Truth series. No, it took a string of absolute trash to land him on the worst fantasy book list. His recent book titles can be used as a euphemism for crap, puke and other less-than-wholesome words. I now hear that Goodkind has decided to embrace the self-publishing movement and inflict even more books on the public, this time with even less editorial control, since he's now going to be the author, editor, and publisher.
God save us from the horror of it all! I fully expect putting Goodkind in this section will rile up some of his fans and feel free to express yourself in the comment section , but before posting anything nasty or libeling my character and tastes, please read the top 5 books on my Top 25 Best Fantasy Book list, THEN come and tell me why NoGoodkind should be taken off this list. Iron Tower. No saving this one from the fall. A shameless rip from Tolkien. And I mean a really, really, really shameless rip. If Terry Brooks 'borrows' ideas from Tolkien, McKiernan straight out copies them word for word, changing a couple of syllables here and there.
Shame on the man for lacking even the creativity to change the characters to something NOT directly copied from Tolkien. Frankly, if Tolkien was still alive, McKiernan would have been sued. And it gets worse as you read. I almost hope a copyright theft lawsuit by the Tolkien estate stops this crime of a series from doing any more damage to tender young fantasy minds.
Apparently this is how the whole sordid mess started: McKiernan suffered a terrible motorcycle crash, and upon waking, decided he wanted to write a sequel to LOTR and I think he did so. A publisher expressed interest in this terrible idea given literary form and sent a letter to the Tolkien Estate seeking the rights to publish the sequel. The Estate was not pleased and denied to grant the rights; McKiernan was then told by the publisher to re-write LOTR with different character names as the backstory to the sequel.
And the demon known as The Iron Tower was infamously birthed into this world. These are simplistic popcorn-style fantasy that don't offer anything new to the genre or even attempt to provide anything outside of a strictly regimented and never-changing formula. Popcorn can be good, but by golly at least make sure it's good popcorn. I'm not against popcorn fantasy, but I am against badly made popcorn fantasy. These books may have been entertaining when you were a kid or new to fantasy, but if you manage to evolve your taste in fantasy, these books taste about as good as stale bread.
Why so bad? Badly written fantasy cliches ripped straight from Tolkien's world. Bad prose that's more wordy than a drunk Snookie, re-used plots that are about as unoriginal as a copy of the Mona Lisa, and cardboard characters so flat you could use them as paper. Yea yea, there are worse out there. I'm not going so far as to label these in the "Terribly Written Books" category, but on the whole there is soooo much better to read out there right now.
This badly written popcorn fantasy is the kinda stuff that gives the fantasy genre a bad name as a whole. Avoid these novels! They're like that cheap type of bread you pick up for fifty cents in the discounted section at Safeway. You might think you got a good dealtill you find it crumbles to pieces on the way home. Pick up a real author like George Martin or Joe Abercrombie and enjoy a real feast. Basically see the 5 ranking Dragonlance for my reasoning why Forgotten Realms is some of the worst fantasy tripe out there.
Both series are pretty much the same. Between Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms, I'll choose Dragonlance -- but this is like making the choice between whether to jump from the Empire State Building or run out of oxygen while on a deep water scuba dive -- either choice sucks and sucks bad. Triple Kill!! I'm not a big fan of the Shannara series at all. I've been getting email after email wondering why Brooks is not on the Top 25 Fantasy list. Let me state it right here: he's not on the list because he hasn't written any books that are good enough to be there.
Shannara was Brook's attempt to milk the whole Tolkien craze during the 80s. Brooks is the literary version of the band Nickleback: both have sold out all creativity and churn out the same sort of crap over and over. Commercially successful? Intellectually stimulating? About as much as watching Bevis and Butthead reruns. There is a marketing concept called first-mover advantage. Brooks with his bad rewrite of Lord of the Rings did just this.
As far as I'm concerned, Brooks is a hack writer who made it big because he was in the Tolkien Clone market first. If you've read one Shannara book, you've read all twenty of them, or thirty I can't remember the exact number as Brooks churns them out like a Chinese noodle factory does noodle boxes. One Shannara book is the same as the rest of them. Hell for me would be being locked into a room with an infinite supply of Shannara books to read.
I'd start puking my eyes out around book 20, and by book 40, I'd probably bite my own throat out. I beg you Terry Brooks, stop writing new Shanara books. If someone points a gun to your head and forces you to read a Shannara novel, perhaps Elfstones is the best of the bunch. But then again, that's like asking which limb you want broken. The correct answer is "none of them.
And dammit, let's get into the Shannara's continuing use of "The Elfstones", a name that itself is borrowed directly from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Man, these Elfstones are simply an outrageous naked plot device that Brooks recycles over and over for more plot fodder, with each additional book having new powers associated with them. After book 20, I still don't think even Brooks knows what the hell these things actually do. In the first book, they help you find stuff, act as a nice magical flashlight and come in handy when battling magical demon types, and even work as a sort of "demon alarm system" if there are, like, nasty demons loafing around.
Talk about no internal rules of magic here. About the only things you can't do with these special stones are your tax forms and your college homework. I'm not insulting Terry Brooks as an author. Ok, well I kinda am. So yes, Brooks writes some decent books And God knows he's had enough practice over the years with the dozens of books he's churned out , but just avoid anything with the word Shannara in the title and you'll probably be OK.
And we beheld, and lo, he is fallen! And while we were yet in the Spirit, the Lord commanded us that we should write the vision; for we beheld Satan, that old serpent, even the devil, who rebelled against God, and sought to take the kingdom of our God and his Christ—Wherefore, he maketh war with the saints of God, and encompasseth them round about. After becoming Satan by his fall, Lucifer "goeth up and down, to and fro in the earth, seeking to destroy the souls of men".
In Islamic traditions the Morning Star or Ishtar is called Zohra or Zohrah and commonly related to a "beautiful woman". In their drunken state, Zohra elicited from these angels the secret words to ascend to heaven. Then she uttered the secret words, she elevated to the first heaven, but was imprisoned or transformed into Venus. Iblis is banished from heaven for refusing to prostrate himself before Adam, which is similar to the earlier 3 Enoch , chapter 4, in which all of the angels prostrate themselves before Enoch , an early descendant of Adam.
Thus, he sins after the creation of man. He asks God for seducing human to sin until judgment day as long God's curse rest on him. God tells him that any humans who follow him will join him in the fire of hell at judgment day, but that Iblis will have no power over all mankind except who wants to follow Iblis. Islamic literature presents Iblis as God worshipping and very pious until he refused to prostrate to Adam due to his jealousy and pride. Hasan of Basra was quoted as saying: In the Bogomil and Cathar text Gospel of the secret supper , Lucifer is a glorified angel and the older brother of Jesus , but fell from heaven to establish his own kingdom and became the Demiurge.
Therefore, he created the material world and trapped souls from heaven inside matter.
Jesus descended to earth to free the captured souls. Rudolf Steiner 's writings, which formed the basis for Anthroposophy , characterised Lucifer as a spiritual opposite to Ahriman , with Christ between the two forces, mediating a balanced path for humanity. Lucifer represents an intellectual, imaginative, delusional, otherworldly force which might be associated with visions, subjectivity, psychosis and fantasy.
Steiner believed that Lucifer, as a supersensible Being, had incarnated in China about years before the birth of Christ. Luciferianism is a belief system that venerates the essential characteristics that are affixed to Lucifer. The tradition, influenced by Gnosticism , usually reveres Lucifer not as the devil, but as a liberator, a guardian or guiding spirit  or even the true god as opposed to Jehovah.
In Anton LaVey 's The Satanic Bible , Lucifer is one of the four crown princes of hell , particularly that of the East, the 'lord of the air ', and is called the bringer of light, the morning star, intellectualism, and enlightenment. Ford has written on Lucifer as a "mask" of the adversary, a motivator and illuminating force of the mind and subconscious. In what is known as the Taxil hoax , he alleged that leading Freemason Albert Pike had addressed "The 23 Supreme Confederated Councils of the world" an invention of Taxil , instructing them that Lucifer was God, and was in opposition to the evil god Adonai.
Supporters of Freemasonry contend that, when Albert Pike and other Masonic scholars spoke about the "Luciferian path," or the "energies of Lucifer," they were referring to the Morning Star, the light bearer,  the search for light; the very antithesis of dark, satanic evil. Taxil promoted a book by Diana Vaughan actually written by himself, as he later confessed publicly  that purported to reveal a highly secret ruling body called the Palladium , which controlled the organization and had a satanic agenda.
As described by Freemasonry Disclosed in With frightening cynicism, the miserable person we shall not name here [Taxil] declared before an assembly especially convened for him that for twelve years he had prepared and carried out to the end the most sacrilegious of hoaxes. We have always been careful to publish special articles concerning Palladism and Diana Vaughan. We are now giving in this issue a complete list of these articles, which can now be considered as not having existed. Taxil's work and Pike's address continue to be quoted by anti-masonic groups.
In Devil-Worship in France , Arthur Edward Waite compared Taxil's work to today's tabloid journalism , replete with logical and factual inconsistencies. Mayor Hall and Lucifer, by an unknown artist Satan on his way to bring about the fall of man. Satan yielding before Gabriel. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This is the latest accepted revision , reviewed on 18 September This article is about both the mythological and religious figures. For other uses, see Lucifer disambiguation. Phosphorus morning star and Phanes mythology. Retrieved 8 September Isaiah 14" in Greek.

Lucifer had motive and opportunity, but claims he can prove his innocence. If Gabriel finds the killer and takes the culprit into custody, his sins will be forgotten, and he will be welcomed back into the Silver City. Note : This version is not considered canon to the Lucifer comics starting in late Those will continue from where the Mike Carey continuity ended. Lucifer is continuously described as a celestial being of incalculable power due to his dominion over the very substance and knowledge of the formation of Creation.
He has been cited as one of the most powerful characters in the DC Multiverse. Through this understanding, Lucifer can shape the matter and foundation of the creation into anything he can imagine, including matter , energy and more abstract concepts, such as time. He once shaped Big Bang energies released by death of his brother Michael into a new universe.
In some ways, this makes him the most disadvantaged, though not the weakest, of the higher angelic host. He needs existing matter and where that is unavailable, the Demiurgic power of the Archangel Michael or that of God Himself to provide the foundation for him to shape. In certain dimensions for reasons unknown, he is powerless and his mobility is limited without his wings. He is also not unbeatable, as Basanos was able to kill him with probability manipulation.
He may choose to temporarily abandon his powers, including his immortality. In the story titled "Lilith", it is logically implied that God could destroy him at His own whim, which makes Lucifer sometimes wonder why He has not dealt with him already. He is so dangerous and unpredictable that even Death does not apply to him. He is never without the formidable resources of his brilliant intellect and his unbending will or inner strength, which allowed him to defy and confront his Father, as well as many other formidable opponents, without fear or doubt.
Although Lucifer's overt exercise of power is limited in the books, if he is provoked to violence, his preference seems to be to use fire and light as a weapon. His original role was as "God's lamplighter", in which he used his will to condense clouds of hydrogen into star-masses and set them alight. As terrifying as they are brief, battles with Lucifer usually begin and end with him drawing down the flames of a super-heated main sequence star and incinerating to ash anything in the immediate area. However, the true reasons why he favors light and fire are partially explained in the story "Lilith" from The Wolf Beneath the Tree.
Beyond his demigodly powers as an archangel, Lucifer possesses the common powers appropriate to an archangel of his position; superhuman strength , superhuman durability, flight , acidic blood or, rather, he bleeds willpower, as depicted in when he reaches Yggdrasil in The Wolf Beneath the Tree , a devastating sonic cry, telepathy and the power to speak to and understand animals.
As an archangel, his powers are significantly superior to other angels. In The New 52 reboot , Lucifer is shown to be significantly less powerful, often using Hell's armies to do his bidding and is susceptible to magic, shown when Excalibur was used to cut off his hand. He has no power over animal souls. He can open and close magical portals to Earth from Hell and back again. He can use this power to either summon or banish demons, as he does with Etrigan. He is clairvoyant, possessing a heightened perception or knowledge of time, even to the extent of being able to know the future. Lucifer appears in Constantine , portrayed by Peter Stormare.
This film's adaptation of Lucifer wears a pure white suit and has tattoos visible at the sleeves and neckline, implying a full body design, while constantly dripping a black oil from his feet that leaves footprints. In the denouement of the film, The Archangel Gabriel, who possesses the Spear of Destiny, and Lucifer's own son Mammon, who possesses the body of a psychic named Angela Dodson, are about to bring Hell on Earth. John Constantine summons Lucifer by slitting his wrists, knowing that suicide is a sin that will damn him and believing that Lucifer will come in person to collect his soul.
Lucifer appears, stopping time in the process. He gloats over his victory and mocks Constantine's attempts to light a last cigarette, noting that the exorcist can no longer move his fingers properly, from cutting so deep. Constantine convinces Lucifer that Mammon is trying to usurp Lucifer's power. Lucifer reestablishes the flow of time, seizes Angela, with Mammon struggling inside her, and confronts Gabriel.
Though Gabriel tries to smite Lucifer with God's power, the demon remains unaffected; God has abandoned Gabriel, allowing Lucifer to banish Mammon back to Hell and to destroy Gabriel's wings. After this, Lucifer returns to Constantine, who offers his own soul in exchange for that of Angela's sister Isabel, a suicide, so that Isabel can be released to Heaven. Seeing it as a fair exchange, Lucifer grabs Constantine and begins to drag him away, but the exorcist's body becomes too heavy for Lucifer to move. God has recognized a selfless sacrifice. Constantine, dying from the slit wrists and suffering from advanced lung cancer, is slowly drawn into a heavenly realm of golden light, Lucifer clutching at his body.
Furious at his revenge being denied yet again, Lucifer revives and heals Constantine by reaching into his chest and pulling the cancer out, thereby giving Constantine the chance to prove his soul belongs in Hell after all. Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman also served as executive producers. It was announced that Tom Ellis would portray the main character in the series. Fox later cancelled the series after 3 seasons on May 11, However, following the successful campaign " SaveLucifer" initiated by fans, the series was picked up by the streaming network Netflix for Season 4.
The ten-episode season began streaming May 8, Netflix is also releasing Season 5, the final season of the show.
