Need a new book series?
I know I ask this question a few months back, but once again I am stuck re-reading the same book series to try and quench my 'book-thirst'
Series I have read-
Chronicles of Narnia
City of Ember Series
I also ask that all books recommended are series, with at least three or more books in the series. Each with 500 pages or more.
And please recommend books that have other worlds, powers, sword fights or magic. Fantasy books :D The types of books I like are comedy, romance, science-fiction, action, adventure, mystery and a bit of horror. Please keep it young adult because I can't read the adult scenes
Sorry for making my question so complicated. Thanks in advance :D
Oh, I've read the Twilight series too! I forgot all about them. They were the best :D

At the Back of the North Wind
In the first book, Eragon, a young man finds a mysterious blue stone in the forested mountains above his home in Alagaesia. Along with his blue dragon, Saphira, Eragon is stumbling about because things are happening to him which he does not understand. His inner goodness and common sense enable him to muddle through and he has some help from a couple of humans and some dwarfs. In the second book, Eldest, the dwarfs, elves, humans, Eragon, and Saphira have joined forces against evil. Eragon and Saphira have begun training to understand and improve their skills. A new, red dragon makes an appearance. I've been told that in the third book a golden dragon will appear. It has just been announced that the third book, Brisingr, will be available on September 20, 2008. Originally planned as a trilogy, Paolini has recently decided that there will be four books in his Inheritance Cycle.
Storms of Vengeance is John's first novel and I've been told that it is part of a series of 8 to 10 books. There is a murder mystery to be solved. Who did it and why? There is a mythical Lorradda Stone to locate. There are three parallel stories as we follow the actions of three different groups of people. There are also some ogres, two elves, several sorcerers, a troll, and one very impressive river monster. The book ends with a cliff hanger. One reason that young people gave for liking Harry Potter was the detail in the stories. They will find plenty of detail here as well. The title of the second book in the series will be The Hunter and the Marked.
There are three stories in Volume I of The Belgariad: Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, and Magician's Gambit. Volume II of The Belgariad has two stories: Castle of Wizardry and Enchanters' End Gambit. If you are looking for grand adventure and plenty of detail it is here. Some may object to the slow progression and limited action of this tale. A sorcerer and his daughter, a sorceress, have gathered together a group of individuals to fight evil. It seems that the particular make-up for this group is necessary based upon an ancient prophecy. The group includes: the Nimble Thief, the Man with Two Lives, the Blind Man, the Dreadful Bear, the Knight Protector, the Horse Lord, the Bowman, the Queen of the World, and the Mother of the Race that Died. A young boy named Garion, who was raised by his Aunt Pol, is caught up in all of this, though he doesn't know why. But then, is she really his Aunt? There is so much detail that I have not as yet confirmed there are no mistakes in the mapping of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed The Belgariad and look forward to reading the sequel, The Mallorean.
The Mallorean Volume I: Guardians of the West, King of the Murgos, and Demon Lord of Karanda by David Eddings

You like other worlds, magic powers and, sword fights?
well well... :P
I highly recommend the Sword of truth series by Terry Goodkind.
They're adult books, but they're VERY easy to understand, they make you think, and your forever on the edge of your seat wanting more! My personal favourites.
go to www.terrygoodkind.com and check out his works, and read the brief outline. I believe there are 11 books in the series (all coming close to a thousand pages in length), with one short prequel type book, which is best read after. They are a very popular book in the fantasy community, so I am sure you will not be dissapointed.
Hope i've helped.

A Great and Terrible Beauty, by Libba Bray
Rebel Angel and the Sweet Far Thing is a trilogy.
Even though it doesn't meet your page requirements I highly encourage you to read the Among the Hidden Series by Haddix, I think you'd love it as well as the Madeline L'Engle series.

Lord of the Rings, and everything by Tolkien! I also like the Pendragon Cycle and the Song of Albion series, both by Stephen Lawhead. Good fantasies.
