Discworld by Terry prattchet, and I will always love the first fantasy series I ever read The chronicles of narnia.


I recently started reading Discworld. It is literally the best thing I've ever seen. It's so funny/hilarious. It's tied for my favorite novel series (with Index). It's really good. I recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy or who is even slightly genre savvy about what people normally say in kid-aimed fantasy. Let's just say that Pratchett openly makes fun of it all of the time and the result is really funny.

I don't know if this would really be fantasy, but I consider it as it. The Chaos Walking trilogy (the first is The Knife Of Never Letting Go). They're my favorite books of all time and I would recommend them to anyone. The only thing is the beginning is pretty stupid, and for that reason I didn't read it for a few years. If you get through the grammar and beginning, you're in for one hell of a ride, and one phenomenal ending that will make you cry.

I don't remember what the series was called, but it was by Tad Williams.

The first book was called The Dragonbone Chair
The second book was called Stone of Farewell
The third was split into two parts: To Green Angel Tower part 1 and To Green Angel Tower part 2


oh and anything by Patricia A. McKillip, Alphabet of Thorn is a favorite of mine

It's geared towards pre-teens but I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson series. The spin on Greek mythology was interesting. The movies however are rough

Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor was really great. It might take a bit to get into it but you won't regret reading it! Obviously I can't forget the amazing Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. I also immensely enjoyed The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare.

Percy Jackson. Definitely Percy Jackson.

I'd still recommend Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion series for some really hardcore fantasy. Now, onto another end of the spectrum, teen vampire books, where I like Nancy Collins' Vamp series the best. Better than twilight, hehe.

I like Ann Bishops Blood Jewels series. It starts with Daughter of the Blood. It's just that I'd never come across Saetan as a father figure before.

I also like Octavia E Butler's Xenogenesis series (also called Lilith's Brood) and Wen Spencer's Elfhome series that begin with Tinker.

I'll start. "The Wheel of Time" by Robert Jordan.

The whole series is epic to say the least. Fourteen books, a prequel, and more characters than you would want to count provide a rich environment packed full of lore and magic.

GRRM's series
Joe Abercrombie's The Blade Itself series and standalone novels based on the same world
Steven Erikson's The Malazan Book of the Fallen
Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archives - Way of the Kings vol.1, still waiting on 2nd one, he took time to complete Wheel of Time using Jordan's notes hence the delay.

Pretty much majority of the series listed on this site: http://bestfantasybooks.com/top25-fantasy-books.php

Wow, nobody has mentioned this author yet.

R.A. Salvatore's work. Particularly the Forgotten Realms series.

He's also done some writing for videogames. If anyone has played Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning (which is a great game, may I add), he wrote the story/dialogue.
