Google Books allows you to check out a novel's most commonly used terms. It's an interesting little function, especially when it comes to works of fantasy. Google Books spits out the words you'd expect - we all know the types of proper nouns and such used in the genre: "Eltorn", "Thunderhammer", "Tyfar", "Trylon".... I'm just making them up as I go. You get the idea.
It's easy to make fun, but in all fairness, if you did the same Google Books function for The Lord of the Rings, it would sound similarly cheesy. The vocabulary of fantasy simply became a parody of itself. (Then along comes George R. R. Martin to break the mold - but that's another story.)
So, I thought it'd be fun to take a look at a stack of fantasy books and single out three of the most common words for each. Plus, I always love the cover art - so even if you don't give a flying shit about the words, there's plenty of eye candy to enjoy.
