So this is just a light-hearted subject just for fun. This is in participation of the 2015 Discussion challenge.
With all the different fantasy novels out there, any fan of the genre has surely come across their share of these mystical, often unique creatures.
Dragons, mermaids, phoenixes, fairies, gnomes, , unicorns, gargoyles, hybrids, griffins, trolls and more.
Not mention the paranormal aspect: Vampires, Werewolves, ghosts, etc.
The list is virtually endless to ones imagination. Especially ones you get into sub-creatures (such as sexy shape-shifting dragons vs the classic firebreathing dragon types).
If you take a look at my backround, I bet you can guess my favorite creature.
That's right. Dragons. The classic type. Flying, sharp claws and teeth and elemental breathing (fire, ice, electric, etc). especially. The magic and power they contact have always captivated my imagination.
I also love some of the unique creatures various authors have created. Often taken from another animal, yes but still.
This past year I just read my first mermaid based novel (excluding children's books) and I have yet to read a book centered on gargoyles.
So what about you? What is your favorite and why? Or what have you yet to read about?
