If you like Lord of the Rings, then most likely you enjoy high fantasy, lots of characters, and great world building. So, here are five series to read if you love Lord of the Rings, and would like some new worlds to explore.
The Great Book of Amber
This is a series of 10 books. The first five books follow Corwin, and the next five his son, Merlin. Amber is the one true world, and all other worlds are just shadows of it. I love reading about Corwin and his brother’s and sister’s scheming for the throne.
The Farseer Trilogy
The Inkheart Trilogy
Meggie’s father, Mo, can read characters and objects out of books. Which is the greatest super power ever! Except that when he reads someone or something out, someone or something from our world goes into the book. I love the world in Inkheart, but my favorite thing about the series is reading about characters that love books as much as I do.
The Dark Tower Series
This is Stephen King’s magnum opus, and it is awesome! Roland Deschain is a gunslinger, and he and his Ka-tet are some of the most badass characters ever.
Of course, I included this series! I don’t know if I would’ve read Harry Potter, if I hadn’t read Lord of the Rings, which was my first real introduction to fantasy books. I want to live in Harry’s world!
Are you a fan of Lord of the Rings? What series would you recommend to someone who is a fan?
