205 William Morris

208 Christopher Paolini

He wrote the best books ever being so young! He invented many new LANGUAGES! All of the books were creative and very unexpected. I couldn't put the books down!

The Inheritance Cycle is one of my favourite series. Although there are some better books like The Hunger Games, Percy Jacksons and the Olympians, and Lord of the Rings, this series should be higher on this list, maybe number 10.

Created the alagaesia trilogy. - ozzydog12
