    Christopher Paolini:

    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.

    John Beachem: 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.

    David Eddings: 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

    The Mallorean Volume II: Sorceress of Darshive and The Seeress of Kell by David Eddings

    Polgara, the Sorceress by David Eddings

    Belgarath, the Sorcerer by David Eddings

    Terry Pratchett:

    The Wee Free Men - Tiffany Aching and a clan of six inch tall blue men (pictsies) attempt to rescue her little brother and stop an invasion from Fairyland.

    A Hatful of Sky - The second Tiffany Aching novel.

    Wintersmith - The third Tiffany Aching novel.

    Jonathan Stroud:

    Bartimaeus Trilogy - The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem's Eye, and Ptolemy's Gate.

    Though Asimov is usually thought of as a science fiction writer, Magic is a collection of his fantasy short stories.

    at first, why the frickin hell are you comparing some thing as pathetic as twilight to Harry Potter and Lord of the jewellery? I mean, I examine the 1st twilight e book... And in basic terms could no longer take any further. i assume it relatively is particularly unique to a pair human beings, yet Stephanie Meyer's writing variety isn't that large.... The plot sucks.... there is not any chemistry between any of the characters. Harry Potter and Lord of the jewellery.... Hmm.... Tolkien redefined the human beings appeared at fable literary products. He even referenced genuine historical epics, and that in basic terms made Lord of the jewellery the terrific e book ever written.... a minimum of for a at the same time as. J. ok. Rowling, on the different hand, won't be as experienced as Tolkien replace into interior the paintings of writing. are not getting me incorrect.... Her writing variety is staggering, yet Tolkien's is extra advantageous. besides the incontrovertible fact that, her mind's eye makes up for it. She wrote some boy who has to stand annoying circumstances any wide-spread boy could face.... Being disregarded, bullied via instructors and friends, and looking out out approximately his previous. The wizarding international is a form of a parallel universe to our very own. There are barriers to magic. No wizard or witch can fly and not employing a broom or the different transport able to flight. they could't convey human beings returned from the lifeless. And Dumbledore can seem to be a form of... nod to Gandalf, do no longer you think of? XD i individually want Harry Potter. =) yet I additionally love Lord of the jewellery. As for twilight..... bleh. oh, yet... i could say the Lord of the jewellery videos are extra advantageous. They tousled in some areas interior the HP videos, yet LOTR is like, the suitable trilogy of flicks. ... After the Godfather, of course. XD

    Let me give you a heads up. Please, don't read the Twilight Series. It's only about love and vampires, there is no plot at all.

    This is coming from a girl who has read every Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings book. Trust me.

    You should try reading

    -Chronicles of Narnia

    -His Dark Materials

    This will help you more

    The Count of Monte Cristo, you'll love it. (While well done, the film did not do it justice, and changed the story around completly)

    For humor read: My Family and Other Animals, by Gerald Durrell (truely a hilarous book)

    If you are ambitious enough to read the Lord of the rings, try The Bard's 'Henvry the Fifth'.

    I recommend Eragon by Cristopher Paolini and Eldest by the same author. He is coming out with another that I am not sure about. I have read Eragon and I LOVED it! It is the best book for those fantasy lovers!
