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

Try Katherine Kurtz's Deryni series. It's about a race of sorcerers in a fictional country similar to medieval Wales. (Like the wizards in the Harry Potter series, the Deryni cannot be identified by their appearance; but their existence is known, and they're often persecuted because of their powers.) Ms. Kurtz has been writing these books for over thirty years. alternating between two sets of characters, one in the 900s and one in the 1100s. I recommend starting with Deryni Rising, the first, and reading them in the order in which they were written. If you like them, you'll have enough to keep you fascintated for quite a while!

I have answered this question so many times, I decided to dedicate a web site to answer this question. Here it is:
Included is a list of only the best sorcery fantasy books, grade reading level, a short review of each book along with a brief summary of adult content. There is also HP fan fiction, a "Readers' Choice" list of favorite books, and a list of heroine sorcery fantasy books.
I hope this helps.

The Shannara series by Terry Brooks is enjoyable - even though the first book, The Sword of Shannara, is obviously a LOTR rip off.

Start with Magician's Apprentice by Raymond E. Feist. It's a long series. Apprentice isn't the best book but after that they're amazing.
