The Greatest Fantasy Series of All Time


Today we're linking up with The Broke and the Bookish to discuss the greatest fantasy series of all time.


I mean the greatest fantasy series of all time, in my humble opinion. 
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

Dimension-hopping librarians, steampunk London, and dragons and fae locked in a never-ending war. What's not to love?

Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

I'm counting these together because they both revolve around the same world and characters. They're both brilliant for different reasons. Percy Jackson has the world's most sarcastic narrator and the twistiest of twisty plotlines. Heroes of Olympus has a ginormous cast of awesome characters and a gigantic metal dragon. 

(So which is better?)

Please don't ask me to choose between them.

Runemarks by Joanne Harris

Post-Ragnarok Norse mythology with the greatest interpretation of Loki ever written. He even has his own prequel. The Runemark series has a huge cast of characters and follows multiple plotlines until everything comes together at the end. It also has hilarious character pages.

Half Bad by Sally Green

I love a good series about witches. The Half Bad trilogy is gory and sweary, light on the magic and heavy on the angst. If you pick up this one, be prepared to have your heart torn from your chest on a regular basis.

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Cycle is a beautifully written quartet that tells the story of four public schoolboys, one not-psychic girl, and a dead Welsh king.  

Burn Mark by Laura Powell

Burn Mark is the story of a girl who was always meant to be a witch and a boy who really wasn't. Quick, gruesome, and unapologetically British. 

There are hundreds more, but I have to stop somewhere. 

Can you pick between Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus? Don't forget to link me to your Top Ten Tuesday post!
