Quiz: can you identify the fantasy novel from its map?
By Roisin O'Shea
From Westeros to Middle-Earth, Earthsea to Narnia, fantasy authors know how to build a world that will invite us in and make us never want to leave. But how well do you really know your favourite worlds?
Every reader loves that moment when you open a book and find a map of the world you’re about to throw yourself into. Whether it’s a hasty sketch or an intricately drawn work of art, a map can make all the difference in helping the world come to life. You can see Mount Doom looming over Frodo from the very beginning of Lord of the Rings, remind yourself exactly which city Daenerys Targaryen is trying to conquer this time or just fantasize about which piece of fantasy real estate you’d like to place your dream home. But how well do you know these maps? Test out your knowledge with our quiz.
