Book Series

Here is the list of book series that I recommend reading. Hope you find something you like. This is going to be a very long list and will continually be added to (I’m never going to stop reading!) Graphic novels and mangas as well as [currently] nonserial books will not be recommended on this page. To lessen the confusion series available on Kindle(only) will be recc’d here but series that are browser reading available only such as the light novels translated by oddsquad.org  will be recc’d on a separate future page.

The Oz series
Author: L. Frank Baum
Most well known for its first book, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, this is a whimsical series that deals with a unique fairy land divided into colors where animals can talk and many things can happen including quite a few visitors from our normal world.  The original author wrote 14 books and the Oz series was later continued by other authors.

Legends of the Guardian-King
Author: Karen Hancock
A series of four books that follow Abramm Kalladorne as he struggles to find where his destiny in a Christian-based fantasy world where the spiritual realm is a lot more visible than our own. Action and adventure, swordfights [seriously swordfighting], monsters and yes political intrigue.

Cape High
Author: R.J. Ross
Currently a 17 book series (plus a Christmas special that is now apparently book 17) it’s a well written series about teenagers developing their superpowers. It blends humor and seriousness quite well. Each book generally follows a different young ‘cape.’ I really like Ross’s approach to the super hero world.

Title: The Traveler’s Gate Trilogy
Author: Will Wight
Amazon summary: From Book 1: Simon can only watch, helpless, as his family is killed and his friends captured by enemy Travelers—men and women who can summon mystical powers from otherworldly Territories. To top it off, another young man from Simon’s village discovers that he’s a savior prophesied to destroy evil and save the realm.
Opinion: This is a really good trilogy, I enjoy that the main character is not in fact the “Chosen One.” Simon has to work his way to help others, and the darker side of  having a “chosen one ” is shown. The series has another book listed as the Chronicles that has a bunch of side character stories. It’s worth checking out.
