To make it easy (for me really), I compiled the list of authors, and some of the series names, except for GoT. I did not include any commentary as to the appropriateness, because there was some debate to a few authors. So - buyer beware, vet as you see fit.

This was really helpful, so thank you BR. Since Saturday thru last night, she's already read two Pierce books and a Duane - liked them all, but as she says "It's not LOTR". Hence, I really appreciate this list.

Neil Gaiman: Stardust and Neverwhere
Terry Brooks: Word and Void trilogy (in addition to the Landover and Shannara novels)
Richard Adams: Watership Down
Jim Butcher: Codex Alera series
Stephen King: In addition to the excellent Eyes of the Dragon recommendation below, I would suggest a few others: The Talisman, The Green Mile, and The Wind Through the Keyhole
