Best Sword and Sorcery ( books)Coming of age stories are one of the oldest themes in fiction, providing a sense of progression and growth that can't be rivaled. It's a concept that rings strong in every person; we have all, at one point, undergone the coming of age. But coming of age doesn't always have to be centered about the adolescent moving into adulthood, it's an experience that can encompass a broad range of ages, and cover a broad range of experiences. The point is that it covers the defining interval of a life, the key moment when a person or in the concept of a novel, the hero becomes the man or woman that defines. In fantasy, that coming of age experience is even stronger, tying in new experiences familiar to us enhances with new, unfamiliar experiences such as magic, swordsmanship, and other foreign concepts. Also expect a good dose of love, loss, tragedy, and new beginnings to be thrown in too. There are thousands of these fantastical coming of age stories out there, but we've managed to narrow it down to fifty of the best ones.
