But which fantasy novel is truly the best? Let’s explore these questions and find out. Below, we’ll discuss which fantasy books are most popular among young adults.
Clockwork Angel by Jacqueline Carey
The young adult fantasy genre has grown immensely in recent years, with the popularity of Young Adult Fantasy books spiking on sites like Goodreads. To help you decide which fantasy books are best, here’s a primer. Jacqueline Carey’s Clockwork Angel is the first in a trilogy of books set in Victorian London. It features familiar characters from Clare’s Mortal Instruments series and a prequel of sorts. The magical world and the eerie characters of the Shadowhunters will captivate readers.
Readers love this series of novels, which are popular because they’re often long-term investments. The storyline follows the adventures of two magicians who fall in love while competing to perform magic tricks. It has over half a million Goodreads ratings. The sequel is even better, containing a magical world in which the characters fight to survive. Discworld is set on a planet that resembles a disc, inhabited by elephants, and has a turtle on top.
This debut novel by Jacqueline Carey is fantasy at its finest. It’s as big and complex as A Game of Thrones or Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World. The characters are so complex and detailed that it may be hard to pick just one favorite. Even if you love fantasy and medieval novels, there’s no better book to dive into. The world-building, the characters, and the world-building are phenomenal.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
In a world where the White people are the dominant species and the Prisms are the dominant race, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson is the top fantasy book. It has a fast-paced plot and detailed magic system. It is a must-read fantasy for fans of epic fantasy. It was the first book in a trilogy, and many people still don’t know how to pronounce its name.
Mistborn is a sweeping trilogy written by high-fantasy author Brandon Sanderson. It is the most popular fantasy book of its generation and is a perfect example of the author’s talent and imagination. The story tackles issues like religion, death, power, helplessness, corruption, and goodness, and readers are left with a sense of wonder and awe.
The story centers around the Skaa, a people who live in a mist-haunted world ruled by powerful Nobility. The Skaa are slaves and property and are descended from the Lord Ruler’s closest friends. In the beginning, the Lord Ruler granted the power of Allomancy to his noble subjects. The Mistings, the descendants of the Skaa, have special hereditary abilities that are related to metals.
Although the Wheel of Time series has been a hit, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson is the best-selling fantasy book of all time. The books are so popular that they span several worlds and many books. Mistborn by Sanderson was one of the first books published by the author, but later, he followed up with The Gathering Storm and A Memory of Light, which were also huge bestsellers.
Eragon by Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman’s Eragon is the first installment of the Inheritance Cycle, and the only edition that tells the tale from the perspective of the titular character. This book sets the tone for the series and introduces a wealth of fantastic characters. It features a wide variety of battle scenes, the creation of fantastic relationships, and many deeply emotional moments. Despite its length, this book is a quick and rewarding read, perfect for beach reading.
This bestselling series is set in a world that is reminiscent of Norse mythology. As a child, you’ll be intrigued by the story of Odd, who’s enlisted by Odin, Thor, and Loki to help save the world. Gaiman’s work is so elegant and accessible that it’s easy to imagine reading it in any language.
This book has earned a place among the best books for young readers. It is the most successful fantasy book for children and YA readers alike. It’s full of magic and adventure, and is one of the best examples of a fantasy series. Neil Gaiman’s other books, such as Neverwhere, are also great reads. It has been ranked as the most popular fantasy book on Goodreads for the past decade.
The author is one of the most prolific and famous authors in the world. His books have been adapted into movies, stage plays, and audiobooks with celebrity voice actors. Gaiman cut his teeth in the newspaper industry before turning to comics. He’s since written novels for adults and even made an appearance in Doctor Who. If you have never read Gaiman’s work, you should try it out.
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susannah Clarke
If you’re tired of reading the same old fantasy books, you’ve probably come to the right place. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susannah Clarke is a brilliantly imagined alternate-Earth novel that tells a Dickensian tale of magical rivalry. The story is set in early 19th century England, and the two protagonists, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, are a pair of magicians who form a partnership, only to find themselves competing. Clarke writes in a pastiche style of Jane Austen’s ironic prose, and the story reads like a slice of ongoing history. It’s over eight hundred pages long, but still manages to feel like a fragment of a full imagined reality.
The novel is complex and elaborate, and the characters are complex. It could have used a magic editor to simplify some of the details. Although the pace is relentless and the plot is quite complex, there are moments where minor happenings erode the dramatic effects of the book. However, it’s worth noting that Clarke inserts about two hundred footnotes throughout the novel, making the book a fascinating read.
As the most popular fantasy novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susannah Clarke is not only rich in plot but also in style. The book is written in a mannered and highly civilized style, and it’s impossible to escape the musical metaphors. Clarke’s writing style would have been the envy of Jane Austen. The characters in Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell are far from the most romantically inclined, but they don’t have any problem talking to each other.
If you’re looking for a good introduction to adult fantasy, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell might be the perfect book for you. It shares many similar elements with Harry Potter and the world of British magic. It has a great blend of fun, darkness, and magic. It also has some adult issues, including class differences and marriage. But the book’s most notable flaw is its length.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

However, if you’re looking for a book with a timeless appeal, you’ve come to the right place.
