6 Fantasy Books With Awesome Villains

Here is a list of 6 Fantasy Books With Awesome Villains.

Ship of Magic (The Liveship Traders, #1) by Robin Hobb

Fantasy Books With Awesome Villains

From the blurb:

On the northernmost point of the Cursed Shores lies Bingtown, a bustling hub of exotic trade and home to a proud merchant nobility famed for its extraordinary vessels.

Only Bingtown liveships can negotiate the perilous waters of the Rain Wild River and plunder the riches found upstream, but such vessels are made from the most precious commodity in the world – a material with the ability to become sentient – and so are extremely rare.

The Dragon’s Path (The Dagger and the Coin #1) by Daniel Abraham

Fantasy Books With Awesome Villains

From the blurb:

The dragons are gone, the powerful magics that broke the world diluted to little more than parlour tricks, but the kingdoms of men remain and the great game of thrones goes on. Lords deploy armies and merchant caravans as their weapons, manoeuvring for wealth and influence. But a darker power is rising – an unlikely leader with an ancient ally threatens to unleash again the madness that destroyed the world once already.

King’s Dragon by (Crown of Stars #1) Kate Elliott

From the blurb:

The Kingdom of Wendar is in turmoil. King Henry still holds the crown, but his reign has long been contested by his sister Sabella, and there are many eager to flock to her banner. Internal conflict weakens Wendar’s defences, drawing raiders, human and inhuman, across its borders. Terrifying portents abound and dark spirits walk the land in broad daylight.

The Black Company (The Chronicle of the Black Company, #1) by Glen Cook

From the blurb:

Darkness wars with darkness as the hard-bitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must. They bury their doubts with their dead.

Then comes the prophecy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more …

Heroes Die (The Acts of Caine, #1) by Matthew Woodring Stover

From the blurb:

A man shouldn’t die with no understanding of why he’s been murdered

Renowned throughout the land of Ankhana as the Blade of Tyshalle, Caine has killed his share of monarchs and commoners, villains and heroes. He is relentless, unstoppable, simply the best there is at what he does.
