Have you ever read the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan? I'm almost done with the third book now, and it's interesting. If you haven't, its Wikipedia article gives a pretty good premise of it.
There are a lot of similarities; the birds on the three islands, waking them up causing horrible things to happen, another legendary bird (Ho-oh/Lugia) having to calm them... Love that game, though. someday I'll write the story idea I have for an alternate world where Purple Eyes's plan succeeded. After I finish the other five ideas first.Is it just me, or does the plot of Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs sound scarily like movie 2, just with the Beasts and the Latis thrown in?
Well, they're really lengthy, but The Lord of the Rings are all fantastic.
Just recently finished a pair of books (a series with only two books and not three, who knew?): Eon and its sequel Eona by Allison Goodman. They were quite good, especially the first one. Plenty of action, suspense, sex, bloodshed, and mystery. It's based in a China-esque nation where twelve "Dragoneyes" act as messengers/channelers of twelve dragons (based on the zodiac). They do all sorts of magical things to keep the nation peaceful, but as always, power corrupts. I highly recommend them.
That sounds quite interesting. I've been planning a Story starting Lavana & Ice; they're from Shadows of Almia. The Ranger series does provide many interesting concepts and characters.I'm planning a fic loosely based on Guardian Signs, only instead of Rangers with Stylers, I have six heroes drawing the signs with rings
Yay! For a book series that was so well received, I've only met like two people IRL who have ever even heard of it. And then they ask what it's about and I have a hard time trying to narrow down its plot details and terminology in just a few sentences. ^^;Hitomi: Fellow Wheel of Time fan!

I'd recommend the A Song of Ice and Fire series. It's a bit gruff and explicit sometimes, 'cause it is a more realistic take on the usual fantasy kingdoms setting, but the author really knows how to draw you in.
Here's a strange story. This is really a fantastic battle of good against evil set in the weirdest landscape you could possibly imagine - there are salt mines and mud dwellers and mighty battle fleets of land-wind-craft fighting ancient wars across the desert.Can you give me a short synopsis?
