Top Ten Fantasy Book Series

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Dark Tower - Stephen King

Why isn't this higher? In fact, why isn't this in the top 5?

I have absolutely no idea how this wasn't on here already. - Yoshilord

The best book series ever!

22 The Malazan Book of the Fallen - Steven Erikson
23 Mistborn Series - Brandon Sanderson

Wonderful author, well thought out story components. He always has very well conceived magical elements. In this series, it focuses on the ability of characters to ingest bits of metal and use them for special powers

24 Ranger's Apprentice - John Flanagan

So much military strategies, accuracy of weapon use, realistic situations, these books are actually believable. Lovable characters like the the kind Will Treaty, Erak the noble viking, Halt the grim ranger and the list goes on. These books are amazing and bring up a new adventure every time that keep you on the edge of your seat. In my opinion, they are tied with Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire. These books deserve to be higher. Please read them if you haven't

25 The Maze Runners - James Dashner

This series is amazing. I'm readings The Death cure right now

This series's is amazing. I'm reading The Death Cure right now.

Newt is perfect.

26 The Saga of Darren Shan - Darren Shan

These were the books that marked my teenage years. I've read and re-read them several times

27 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer
28 Wings of Fire - Tui T. Sutherland

Oh these are wonderful! The plot is amazing, the characters are awesome. Read this saga/series!

This was one I liked a lot. Not many stories where not only dragons are the main characters, but are the dominant species of their world. And not as violent or with s many needless deaths as the Age of Fire series.

Love tsunami and glory

BEST SERIES EVER well tied with warriror cats

29 The Witcher - Andrzej Sapkowski
30 Redwall - Brian Jacques

This was my intro to fantasy as a kid, and they still haven't lost their charm when I go back and read them now. Each one is an adventure worth taking.

31 Dune - Frank and Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson
32 The Spooks - Joseph Delaney
33 The Stormlight Archive - Brandon Sanderson

This is honestly some of the best written fantasy I've ever read. And I've read a good amount. The world and lore is so intriguing and the characters have really good development. You should definitely give these books a shot.

34 Bone - Jeff Smith
35 Earthsea - Ursula Le Guin

Loved these books as a young teenager. Much easier to read then some of her other books (such as The Left Hand of Darkness).

This was Harry Potter before Harry Potter, it deserves to be top 10-15 - Eorel

36 Hush Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick
37 The Sword of Shannara - Terry Brooks

Classic high fantasy

38 The Dark Elf Trilogy - R.A. Salvatore
39 Dragonlance Legends - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

Seriously!? Terrible

40 The Once and Future King - T.H. White
