One of the reasons I love fantasy so much is the worlds it lets us visit. We can emerge ourselves in so many different environments, experiencing a lot of different fictional cultures and people. Some of those places are so amazing, I really wish I could visit them.
While Ixia would be either boring or unpleasant (so cold and strict), Sitia would be a fantastic place to holiday. The culture is rich with so many tribes and mix of cultures, especially at the Magician’s Keep.
Having only read Truthwitch so far, I can’t pinpoint where, exactly, I’d want to visit so let’s just say ALL of it! Sail around with Merik, visiting all the different countries and seeing all the different cultures and environments. Hopefully there isn’t a war going on a the time, that makes travel a bit more difficult.
I would most definitely die or have something terrible happen to me in this world, there is no doubt about that. The appeal is the almost constant sunlight (the novelty of which would wear off very quickly) and the Mediterranean atmosphere of the world. Also I’d love to go exploring the creepy Quiet Mountain.
Terrasen reminds me of the highlands of Scotland and New Zealand. It sounds so gorgeous, with rolling hills, magnificent mountains, and large, dense forests. The experience would be awe-inspiring.
This world has a lot of nostalgia for me. It’s the world of one of the first adult epic fantasy series I ever read, one of the first fantasy novels I ever read actually. Plus it has flying horses and I’d love to see them!
