The Name of the Wind
(The Kingkiller Chronicle #1)by Patrick Rothfuss
Kvothe tells this story in his own words. This is the story of a young wizard who grows up to be the most famous in his world, and he is very good at magic.

For the first time in his life, Harry feels like a normal child. But even in the Wizarding world, he is unique.
When Lord Voldemort tried to kill Harry Potter, he put a death curse on him. After failing to kill him, Voldemort disappeared from the Wizarding world. He is known as the boy who lived.
The first year at Hogwarts is the best time in Harry’s whole life, but not everything is great. There is a dangerous secret object hidden inside the castle walls, and Harry thinks it’s his job to make sure it doesn’t get into the hands of bad people. But if he does that, he will come into contact with forces that are more terrifying than he could have ever thought of.

There are stories about it, though. People who have Shardblades, which make them almost indestructible on the battlefield, are the only thing left from those supposed fights. The world has been at war with itself for a long time now, ever since the Radiants turned against us. kings want to win more Shardblades so that they can be the one to finally unite all of mankind under a single throne.
This is the story of a young spearman who is forced into the army of a Shardbearer. He is sent to fight against an enemy he doesn’t understand and doesn’t want to fight.
Mankind has a long history.
In what way did they change their minds and lose the magic they once used?

(The Old Kingdom #1)by Garth Nix
It was when Sabriel was young that she was sent to a boarding school in Ancelstierre. She hasn’t had a lot of experience with Free Magic or the Dead who don’t want to stay dead when they die in the Old Kingdom. But at the end of her last semester, her father, the Abhorsen, goes missing, and Sabriel knows she has to go to the Old Kingdom to find him, so she goes there. With Sabriel, the first book in the Abhorsen series, Garth Nix became a rising star in the fantasy world. The book takes readers to a world where the line between the living and the dead isn’t always clear, and sometimes disappears entirely.
It’s the story of two sisters who happen to be princesses and the God King who has to marry one of them. The lesser god doesn’t like his job, and the immortal is still trying to fix the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago.
Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren’s capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.
In order to make miracles and do bad things, you can use your breath and draw on the colors in things you see every day. Vivenna and Siri, two princesses of Idris, will need a lot of each to solve all of the problems they face. Lightsong, a reluctant god of bravery, and Vasher, the Warbreaker, will also need a lot of each.
