At the Back of the North Wind
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.

Try "Life of Pi" by Yan Martell. This is without a doubt the BEST book I have ever read. It's definitely a must read if you like to read. It won the Man Booker Award in 2003.
Note:For inspiration on good books I always go to www.manbookeraward.com This is the site that lists the best of the best sellers for the last 40 years. The booker award is the most prestigious award given in the literary world to a fictitious novel. You may also want to try bookbrowse.com .

From what you have already read, I would suggest the Philip Pullman Northern Lights Trilogy (the books that the film The Golden Compass is based on). I haven't seen the film - but I really enjoyed the books. I also really enjoyed the Harry Potter series, which is why I have made the connection.

It keeps you hooked from beginning to end. Its not fantasy but its . . . I don't even have the words to describe it, its sooo good. LOL. Please read it. Oh, and I love Eragon and I'm about to start reading Eldest. Happy readings. Take care.

i LOVE the seventh tower series and the keys to the kingdom, both by garth nix. i also like the inkheart trilogy, the third book coming out this spring. the young wizard's series is pretty good to me too, but it has some sci-fi science stuff in it.
