Best Epic/Fantasy Book Series of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Vampire Chronicles - Anne Rice
62 GONE Series - Michael Grant
63 Dragonlance Series - Laura and Tracy Hickman + others

The Dragonlance books are actually a collection of over 190 novels all based in the same world with contributions from 12(or more, I'm not completely sure) authors. I highly recommend reading at least the original three.

Not sure why some of these series are even here, and especially not sure why they're doing better than this series... Amazing plot especially the main trilogy.

Dragonlance Chronicles are the best!

64 Lunar Chronicles - Marissa Meyer

Great Series. Can't see why the heck this is all the way down at 65.

The characters are amazing! ^_^

65 The School for Good and Evil - Soman Chainani

A masterpiece that branched into every aspect of my life.

I love Hort!

I LOVE THIS SERIES! I don't care if it's only three books( they are super long) it is still amazing and is by FAR better than any of this crap you put on here! If you don't know what it is just look up the title and you will see a website. I say it is way better and if you don't think so then your brain must be made of horse crap because it is awesome! -Sofierules! 😇

66 Codex Alera - Jim Butcher

Seriously what's not to love its by probably one of the greatest authors ever has one of the richest storylines I've read and I've read all of the top ten also we put the right title it was the king slayer just saying not trying to be rude

Love all of the different characters. The story takes quite a few unexpected twists.

67 The Alexander Trilogy - Valerio Massimo Manfredi
68 The Night Angel Trilogy - Brent Weeks

My all-time favorite book! It's got assassins, Godkings, Violence and everything you'd ever want in an epic fantasy trilogy. The characters are well thought through and intriguing - I love all of them! I would definitely recommend them.

69 Keeper of the Lost Cities - Shannon Messenger

Yes! Not many people read this series, but it's amazing! I can't wait for Nightfall to come out!

The only reason it's not competing up against Harry Potter and Percy Jackson is cause it's not widely known. Because trust me- ITS AMAZING.. ABSOUTLY AMAZING!
This book inspired me to want to become an author someday- impossible dream, I know. But... its helped. Sometimes when the thoughts of cutting or suicide passes my mind, I realize if I do that, I wouldn't be able to read the next book. :') Give it a try-its just that good.

PS. It's beaten Harry Potter multiple times in amazon and stuff. :D

70 The Fae Series - Karen Marie Moning

This series is amazing! It's all about dangerous lust, that turns into hot love. There's romance, humor, adventure and death. An excellent book to read if your into world dominating Fae, and other dark creatures.

71 The Saga of Darren Shan - Darren Shan
72 The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant - Stephen Donaldson

My all time favorite. An anti-hero that makes you fall in love with The Land!

My personal favorite. Masterfully written and fabulous depth of characters. I think this should have been #1.

73 Broken Empire - Mark Lawrence
74 Goosebumps
75 The Chrysalids - John Wyndham

A stunning and thought provoking book - Starsparks

76 The Dark Jewels Series - Anne Bishop

I've read more books than I could ever put a number to, but these are some of the best books I've ever read. I love them. They've become a part of my life and are a set of books that I will read again and again through out my life.

77 Abhorsen Trilogy - Garth Nix
78 Shiva Triology - Amish Tripathi

A MUST READ! I mean, some of the words maybe hard to pronounce for so many, but what the hell, we read series where ancient language is used too so it really doesn't make a difference! This series may not be the best, but it definitely deserves to be in the top 10! It has the perfect blend of human character and fantasy, yet not fantasy, because the story pulls you back to the olden days and it all feels so surreal! If you haven't read to the book, then I suggest you run to the bookshop THIS INSTANT, buy it and read it. I can promise that you will NOT be disappointed! So what are you waiting for? GO GO GO! :D

This triology is awesome. It is not in the list because its By Indian WRITER and not everyone is aware about it.

79 Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick

Best book series ever. My favourite since I was 15!
