FLYTIP: Care for Cartography

WELCOME TO FLYTIP, an original feature hosted here at FLYLēF to share blog design graphics and advices, as well as encourage related discussions. The topic for Saturday, September 30th, 2017 comes from my guest Lili @ Utopia State of Mind, and her prompt is "FLYTIP: Care for Cartography || What are 5-10 of your favorite maps within books?"

I'm so glad to be discussing this with you because I find maps very interesting. I'm one of those who constantly flip back and forth as I'm reading to gage where the characters are at in the story. What can I say...I like to be oriented. Here are a few worlds that I really enjoy. (Maps found on authors' sites.)

 

• • KETTERDAM • •

I would love to "visit" Ketterdam, home of criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. The Six of Crows duology, by Leigh Bardugo, has one of the most thoroughly developed world-building I've had the pleasure to read. There are many diagrams capturing the beauty of this world, including the stunning Ice Court, which is a deadly and impenetrable prison of concentric circles.

 

• • LANDS of CAELIRA • •

I recently finished reading Roar (Stormheart 1), by Cora Carmack, and fell in love with this world of violent magical storms.

 

• • LOOM and NOVA • •

The Loom Saga, by Elise Kova, is such an entertaining series. The Territories of Loom is a terrestrial world blanketed by shades of grey. Contrastly, The Islands of Nova is the city above the clouds radiating with vibrant colors.

 

• • ROSHAR • •

I cannot even begin to describe this epic world in The Stormlight Archives, by Brandon Sanderson. It's wild and gorgeous.

 

• • MIDNIGHT SEA • •

Three enchanting worlds collide in this wonderful series. The Fourth Element series, by Kat Ross, takes you across the wasted Great Salt Plain to the glittering capital of Persepolae, and finally to the House-Behind-the-Veil.
