Best Epic/Fantasy Book Series of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 His Dark Materials - Phil Pullman

How is this not in the top 10? These books are not just about some kid and her adventures, they broaden the mind and open your eyes to things you never really thought about before picking up a strange-looking book titled The Golden Compass. Phillip Pullman's world will engulf you and you will never be able to shake it off completely.

Fantastic series, and my favorite books of all time. Phillip Pullman creates a world you want to get lost in, and believe me, you'll have no trouble at that.

The first fantasy series I ever read, and I will never forget these books. Re-reading them as a adult added new depth to the series.

42 Chronicles of Prydain - Lloyd Alexander

This series got me hooked on fantasy. I read it when I was 9 or 10 first and loved it. Reread it in high school, loved it. Reread it when I bought for my daughter this year still love it

These books are amazing! I wish I had discovered them sooner because the lesson they teach are so powerful. Love love love these books!

This series was a childhood favorite but when I read it as an adult the layers of epic story truly came out. It is and will always be a corner stone of fantasy for me.


43 House of Night Series - P. C. Cast

This series has so much going for it! There's lessons about love, loss, friendship, and loyalty. The characters are quite rounded and as the series go on, you learn more and more about each one. Plus such a unique yet original take on Vampires as well as intertwining elements of witchcraft throughout. Such a great Fantasy series that should be higher on the list!

44 Fablehaven - Brandon Mull
45 Dragon Prince - Melanie Rawn

This series should be higher ranked! While written over 30 years ago, it reads current! Love it!

46 Gregor the Overlander Series - Suzanne Collins

Hunger Games series was great. But Suzanne Collin's other series, Gregor the Overlander, is even better. Don't let the silly covers and oversized font fool you. These books take the reader on an emotional journey through a strange new world and pushes the limits on the characters resolves. The books get better and better. Masterpiece.

47 The Dark Elf Trilogy - R. A. Salvatore V 2 Comments
48 Sisters Grimm

Entertaining on audio discs for adults and children

49 Obernewtyn Chronicles - Isobelle Carmody

A very entertaining series of books, I highly recommend them to anyone that likes fantasy

50 The Missing - Margaret Peterson Haddix
51 Divergent Series - Veronica Roth

Fab! I read Divergent & Insurgent in record time & am waiting for Allegiant! And I am the Mom!

43?!?! It should be in the top 20 at least! This series is amazing!

How can you like this? Even the movies suck!

Should be 2 after Harry Potter amazing books! I cried while reading it's so good!

52 The 39 Clues
53 Junie B. Jones - Barbara Parks V 1 Comment
54 Earthsea Series - Ursula K. LeGuin

Very well writen, thought provoking, exciting, excessively likable characters, I've read many of the series on here and this is the best! - CaptainComedy17

The Deed of Ged tells an incredibly powerful tale, one whose lessons I will never forget.

One of the best fantasy series I have ever read.

One of the most brilliant series ever written

55 The Dresden Files - Jim Butcher

Fantastic series I love the character development and sarcastic and defiant nature of the main character. Not a flawless Hero but just a Guy who happend tot be gifted with magical powers and a mindset that forces him to aid the weaker and troubled, even if most of the times it comes at a price.

One of my faves. can't wait to see how Harry gets away from Mab, or will he? I'm betting on YES,

56 The Witcher Saga - Andrzej Sapkowski

Witcher saga is the best of fantasy series outside English language's zone. Spectacular protagonist, interesting characters, brilliant dialogs and much more

Masterpiece. Brilliant humour, witty, amusing, intelligent. Playing with cultural references and delicate allusions.

Amazing story with amazing characters. It's absolutely awesome! Should be first

Deserves a lot more attention

57 Guardians of Ga'Hoole - Kathryn Lasky
58 Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

An absolutely mind-boggling series to read for the writing and the writing alone, as the plot is simply non-existent. Marvelous!

Yes! Then read his detective books Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, both series will make you laugh out loud so clever and hysterical

I MUST have missed it on the list... Impossible that its not on here. And if it is, I'm okay with that... This 'trilogy' should be listed twice.

59 Magic Kingdom of Landover Series - Terry Brooks
60 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

Epic series really hard to put down without completing it
