"Great, gnarled roots twisted up out of the ooze along the banks like grotesquely misshapen legs, and trunks as vast as castles reached up into the steaming sky."I am a huge fantasy fan and the first fantasy books I ever read were The Belgariad series by David Eddings. He had such a wonderful way of making the people and settings come alive right before your eyes. I think this description of the trees in the Nyissan swamp is particularly good.
