    Have you read the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman? I read it years ago, and just revisited it this past year, and it was a wonderful fantasy story.

    I'm reading the series Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It's really good and there are 4 books. I'm on the 3rd book right now and I have all 4.

    Terry Brooks - Magic Kingdom of Landover (series)

    Paul B. Thompson & Tonya C. Cook - The Dargonesti (I wish I still had this book)

    kim harrison has a really great paranormal series out i think there are 6 or 7 books . i love them. i have read them all at this point.

    there is also a crimson city series out but it has several different authors those are pretty awesome too.

    i read a lot and every few months i take all the books i have read and donate them to different places like the library, the shelter for abused women, etc...

    i also listen to a lot and i do mean a lot of audiobooks lol i am addicted to them.
    I feel the need to be petted too!

    Have you read the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series? Its great. Start out with "A Game of Thrones" by George R R Martin


    Ohh and there is the Redwall series. but its a bit juvenile at times

    I thought it dragged a bit in the beginning of each of the books. I felt like I walking through cold molasses through the first have of the book and then it warm up. A great adventure no doubt, but a bit dodgie in spots.

    DuPra's City of Ember...it is young adult lit, but a great read. I believe the second book is called City of light.

    Since the focus of my masters has to do with literacy I have been reading a lot of young adult lit. i really like. The characters, while fewer of them are usually better development and the plot lines not convoluted.

    Well, I guess that's were differing opinions lie. I thought the beginning of each book was anything but dodgie. I thought it was rather fast paced to be honest. I loved his style while describing things, as it brought them to a vibrant reality for me. (I understand this can be a personal preference thing.) I read the three novels the first time in less than a months time. I thoroughly enjoyed the read, even the second time around.
