Updated Best-selling Epic Fantasy Hardcovers of 2017



Recently I did a post which looked at the 15 Best-selling Epic Fantasy Hardcovers of 2017. This was 3 days prior to the release and I was pleased that Age of Swords came in at #6 and Age of War was showing up at a respectable 39. Now that we are 10 days post release, I thought I would look at the list again, and this time the results were even better.  Both lists were obtained the same way, by looking at Amazon and doing an advance search with the following criteria.
  • Epic Fantasy Hardcovers
  • Release date older than Jan 2017
  • Sorted by best-selling
Once again, this is a momentary snapshot in time, and the same search will be much different many months from now but it was still fun to see the books performing nicely. Two books dropped off (Anthony Ryan's The Legion of Flame & Mark Lawrence's Red Sister) and the ones that came are are: The Book of Swords (an anthology) and ... wait for it... Age of War by some guy named Sullivan!
