Mad about books? Well nothing like the long endless months of summer vacations to catch up on your reading. The wait ends here for die hard Fantasy-Lovers. Here are some must- read recommendations for Fantasy-Lovers/ Dreamers with a taste for incredible usage of imagination.
The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
You cannot talk about Fantasy and not mention arguably the most loved Fantasy story. If you haven’t already read and re-read the books just about a 100 times, well it’s never too late. You can be 100% sure you won’t regret a single minute of reading it.
The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
A classic example of Epic Fantasy will never cease to amaze you at every turn. Full of magic, enchantments, spell casting, breathtaking- fire breathing Dragons, Dragon Riders, mesmerizing elves, shades etc this is your ticket to a magical world you definitely do not want to miss out on.
All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness
A vast mix of a number of genres- Fantasy, Adventure, Alchemy, Romance, History, Biology, etc – there’s sure to be something in it for everyone. But most of all, the series is an absolute treat for Fantasy- Lovers looking for bag- fulls of magic and magical races. A race through time, centuries old secrets and centuries old enemies makes the series thoroughly irresistible.
The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
The Shadowhunter series is actually made up of three different series- The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices (prequel) and The Dark Artifices (ongoing). The books narrate the tale of quasi- angelic beings- ‘Shadowhunters’ whose duty is to protect humanity by fighting demons, dark- magic and keeping all other worldly dangers at bay. Definitely one of the best Urban Fantasy series out there.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
The series is a fantastic modern take on Ancient Greek myths and legends. You’ll never know what to expect next. With its own spin on Mythological monsters, demons, heroes, villains, creatures, places, gods, titans, etc on the loose in the bustling streets of New York, you’ll be hard pressed to unglue yourself from the books.
Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Our much loved heroes from the former series- Percy Jackson and The Heroes of Olympus – have grown up and made some new demigod friends. Together they travel through the breadth of the US, cross the Atlantic, fight their way through Rome and Greece and Hell too! Together these books make for a mind- blowing series and an unforgettable read.
Graceling Realm trilogy by Kristin Cashore
In a refreshingly new series, Cashore introduces a new kind of people- Gracelings – with different special abilities- grace. Each book in the series is very different from the others in terms of plot, characters, tone, setting, etc, yet in their own way equally fascinating. If you are into adventure, conspiracy, political intrigue, revelation & discoveries and a subtle touch of romance, look no further.
Dragon Riders Pern (the original trilogy & the rest of the books set in the 9th pass) by Anne McCaffrey
One of the very few Fantasy novels/series where the danger is not from someone but something. Part of one of the oldest and largest Fantasy series, these books if read together make for a very satisfactory read. The fact that even without any magicians around, the books make-up one of the best Fantasy series of all times is a testament to their greatness.
The History Keepers by Damian Dibben
Just try to imagine if you could travel through time to protect history itself from meddlers who seek to change the course of history to their advantage! Sounds fun, right? This is exactly what this amazingly interesting series is all about. So what are you waiting for, get on board for a roller coaster ride through time.
The Chronicles of The Imaginarium Geographica or The Age of Dragons by James A. Owen
One of the most wildly imaginative Fantasy series ever written, the series was meant for Dreamers. Embark on the most adventurous journeys on a ship that can travel between worlds with the help of an atlas of all the worlds that ever existed in myths, legends, fables and fairy tales!
