Amazon’s top 5 fantasy bestsellers, August 28, 2010: The Return of the Awesome? For the first time in recent memory, the top 5 fantasy bestsellers on amazon.com are not dominated by vampire/teen novels! And it only took the king, the Elvis of fantasy, J.R.R. Tolkien to dethrone the fad. Not a bad trio to round out the top three really, with Towers of Midnight holding strong, and Terry Brooks’ latest Shannara novel (Kindle version) rounding out the top 3. I’m so happy I’m not sure what to do with myself now.
- The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun by J.R.R. Tolkien & Christopher Tolkien
- Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
- Bearers of the Black Staff: Legends of Shannara by Terry Brooks
- Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
- Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
