Who Writes Like Jacqueline Carey?

I tossed up whether Carey should be in trilogy fantasy or here but 6 of the Kushiel series of books set in  Terre d'Ange by Jacqueline Carey are consecutive even if grouped. If you enjoyed the Kushiel books for their imaginative world and characters, you may also like these other writers of epic fantasy.

With a French flavour in more ways than one, the world of Terre d'Ange and the characters of Phèdre nò Delaunay,  Joscelin and Imriel are as hard to forget as Dumas Three Musketeers. Elements of the story of Hyacinthe also make me think of  Pirates of the Caribbean.
