Top Ten Beast Quest Book SeriesBeast Quest is a collection of book series with the same story consisting of over hundreds of books and over twenty book series overall. Each series consisted of six books until the fourteenth series when they changed it to four books per series. It's also one of my favourite book series of all time and I felt like wanting to make a Beast Quest related list now. I have read all the books that have been translated to swedish since the summer of 2016 and have always read new books of the series. Unfortunately they seemed to have stopped after the tenth series to translate books so I will only be able to do lists of the first ten books which are also the only ones I have read. I will be comparing these ten series now and make a list of the best series, so with that being said, here is the list, of the best Beast Quest book series
The Lost World is my faovurite Beast Quest series, honestly, it's one of the best book series of all time. It is incredibly different from the other series and the beasts of Tavania are better than most others. First off, the land here in this series is basically Avantia but all the names from Avantia are transposed, for example, the country here is called TAVANIA instead of AVANTIA. And there's more. And here's the best part about this series. In other Beast Quest series, Tom had to either kill the beasts if the were fully evil, or try to remove the curse on the beasts if they were cursed, that's not the case for this series luckily. We are greeted with originality. Here, the beasts are good, but they can been teleported to areas they don't belong to and they get crazy and mad and Tom needs to calm them down so he can send them back to their habitats, that is super clever. because I've been tired of Tom doing to same things over and over agian. The only slightly below average book I ...more
Oh yeah, the most recent of the books that are translated into swedish, is definitely great. It's one of the most original as well, I must say. This one has roots from the prequel series known as "Chronicles of Avantia", as in this book, Malvel, the main villain has bringed back six dead knights back to life, and he turned then into a beast they once fought in their lifetime. These knights are former knights of the town of Forton, the hometown of the main character of the prequel book series, Tanner, and it's awesome how a modern beast quest book series take inspiration from the prequels. I mean that's awesome. And the books do not disappoint at all. The weakest book, Noctila, is a B+ book for me, and that's saying something. And it just got better as it went on. The rest of the books are all A books. Especially Lustor, a GOAT book, and Tecton, which has one of the most emotional sacrifices in the series. They are some GOAT books. The other three books, Voltrex, Shamani and Doom are ...more
I personaly liked this series of books a lot, not only because of the plot and ending but also because of the beasts, not to mention the ending. if I had to say my favoruite beast of the series 10 it would be lustor
The Warlocks Staff was definitely a series to remember. It's not like super original like The Lost World or Master of the Beasts, however I think it consists of more good books than The Lost World. However The Lost World had three of the GOAT Beast quest books and was more original, so yeah, that one's still better. However this book series isn't too far behind. The worst books, Ursus and Minos are still great books in my opinion that are a joy to read, even if Minos doesn't have the best setting but eh. It gets better as it goes on. Spikefin, Koraka and Torpix are probably some of the best books in the series in my opinion, although I think only Spikefin would be put in the GOAT category. Koraka and Torpix, while not GOAT worthy, are still very excellent books with excellent settings and stories. Silver is also amazing and the most original easly of the six books here
And my favourite of the classic books series (Series 1-4) is definitely the second one, which is The Golden Armour. Not only does it have the best books of the four series, but it has a lot of nice settings. With the exception of Stix, one of the worst Beast Quest books of all time, the rest of the series is pretty solid. Zepha is yes, just a rehash on Sepron from the first series, but not only did I read this one before that one, I think this one was overall done better. And to be honest, beach settings always work so I don't care. Arachnid and Soltra are two amazing books as well I'd classify as excellent. The other two books, Vipero and Trillion are simply great and good books for me
The very first Beast Quest book series deserves a mention of course here. While it's nothing too spectacular compared to a lot of the other series, it's a pretty good series still. And by the way it started Beast Quest. That's a fact as well, obviously. I mean this book series doesn't have any GOATs at all sadly, but the best books are some great ones and it luckily doesn't have any bad books in it. The best books, Tagus and Sepron are pretty great although they aren't GOAT worthy. Nanook and Arcta are pretty great as well in my opinion. The weakest books are Ferno and Epos because they didn't really have that great settings compared to other series. However it's a good to great series in my opinion
The best beast quest series no questions asked.
Now, I'll be honest with you. I genuinely enjoy this series, and I say it deserves to be high on this list.
I remember, our old school had a few beast quest books in the library, and I noticed them and thought they looked interesting. And so I plucked out the first one I could see. Torgor the Minotaur ( the first book of the dark realm). I remember reading it, and really enjoying it. But I wasn't too sure what it was all about.
And so we ended up getting many seasons of beast quest, starting from the very beginning. And after twelve books, when I finally came back to Torgor, I just felt so happy. I read the first ten seasons, but then I stopped. I just didn't feel like reading the next ones, and I eventually decided to forget about it all. I decided to just let the books lie there, gathering dust for a few years.
But, after a while of having literally nothing to do, I've finally decided to start reading them again. And I'm almost back at Torgor, and I can already ...more
I was never really a fan of the dark realm book series because while the settings were among the more unique as the land of Gorgonia is kinda like a horrid place, and it has unique colours, it also had some boring books. Now Sting was an excellent surprise, and Tusk, Skor and Kaymon were pretty great, but that's not all. Torgor was decent but it was definitely a bit underwhelming. Narga is the worst and one of my lesser favourite Beast Quest books overall. Narga is mainly what drags this series so low down, and Torgor I guess because otherwise it would've been at least higher than The Pirate King and Beast Quest.
With the exception of Muro, which was a bit underwhelming the rest is pretty excellent. It has one of the better stories in a Beast Quest adventure for me as Tom and Co. must save his mother from a curse by collecting ingredients to a magic formula and that's awesome in itself. Not only does this series have two of the GOAT books in the series (Murk and Terra), but the rest is solid as well. Vespick and Komodo were great books while Fang, was definitely a memorable adventure. I feel like this is one of the more colourful Beast Quest series as well for some reason, and it's probably thanks to the GOAT books Murk and Terra. They are set in a swamp and a forest respectively and it truly helps the series have a colourful yet pretty dark tone for an average Beast Quest book series in my opinion
Among the more recent book series of Beast Quest, The Pirate King is definitely one of the worse. Now yes, it has a GOAT book (Kronus), and there's Balisk which is fairly excellent as well, but, not the rest. Now Boar was a pretty good book I'll admit but the remaining three are underwhelming. These are Koron, Torno and Hecton (oh gods! ). Koron had good moments and was a lot better than the other three but it didn't have the best setting. Torno was so boring and overall nothing too good but it was alright. Hecton, is the WOAT Beast Quest book and that speaks for itself
Eh, I didn't really like it that much. The country here is just called 'The Forbidden Country' (if translated from the swedish name), and it's pretty underwhelming. The beasts are evil, but they're ghost beasts, ok, I guess it's creative but it just doesn't work. Luna, Blaze and Equinius were amazing, but then we had the mediocre books like Nixa, Rashouk and Stealth, and all three are below decent, this was the first Beast Qest series I read, but I'm not going to be biased. I don't hate this series as it's still decent but due to the boring enviroments and mostly mediocre books makes me place it last as a result
The one book series that wasn't necessarily needed and started modern Beast Quest and is the reason Beast Quest books are still spammed out today. *sigh*. Anyway this is definitely one of the much worse book series out there in terms of Beast Quest. It only has one excellent book alone which is Amictus. Hawkite and Trema were pretty good as well but nothing awesome. Then there's the very mediocre books of the series which are Rokk, Krabb and Koldo. Rokk is alright but underwhelming, Krabb I used to love but it's so boring now in terms of setting and Koldo is one of my least favourite Beast Quests. So yeah, it's super low
