I love a good fantasy novel. It’s one of my favourite styles to read about. I really do enjoy the impossible, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
So if you’re bored these holidays, and you want a great “other-world” book to read, here are some of the best ones I’ve read. I hope you enjoy them!

Aidan has been thrown into another world. A world where an evil is growing stronger and stronger. And this evil could be strong enough to overthrow King Eliam the Everlasting. Hopes hang on a thread. Mithegard must join the allegiance.
And Aidan, unlikely Aidan, is picked to go as the twelfth knight on this important quest. And this quest won’t just affect the fate of this world. It will change Earth too.
Brilliant trilogy! Some of the writing is slightly tacky, and other things will remind you of a child’s version of The Lord of the Rings, but apart from that, these books have to be my favourite fantasy series. It’s written as a parallel to the Bible, and it’s just fascinating. Definitely read this.
Lyf is sick. She’s going to die. Unless Kaeldra can find the courage to do what only she can do. Go to a dragon and ask for its milk. Milk that will save a dying child.
But the dragon’s not all it seems. And when it’s killed, it’s up to Kaeldra to take care of the draclings. Draclings that are being hunted, wherever she takes them.
This book is simply great. It’s interesting to explore the possibility of good dragons — dragons who are just like people. This is the first in a four book set.
Dina has the shamer’s eyes. Eyes that will make you remember the worst things you’ve ever done. Eyes that will make the hardest criminal ashamed.
Suddenly, Dina is thrown away from Cherry Tree Cottage into a whirlwind of terror. She’ll have to face guards, murderers, and, worst of all, those horrible beasts they call dragons.
The idea of shamers is great, and the books are even better. If you read the first one, you’ll have to start reading the next, it’s that kind of book. Fantastic way to spend your time — just mind a couple of words.
Hal is an outcast among the boys, simply because his mother’s an Araluen. So when it comes to Brotherband training, he’s never going to be picked to be a team captain. But he is. Captain to the loosing team.
There is no way the Herons could win. Not with their members being a boy with a hot temper, a thief, a short-sighted giant, a joker, twins that won’t stop arguing, a bookworm, and a skirl who doesn’t know the right shape for a ship sale. Still, there’s always a chance…
A great book to read. It’s pretty predictable. But just because you’re fairly certain what’s going to happen doesn’t mean it will be boring. And there’s enough twists and turns to the plot to keep you on your toes. It’s the first of a series, but the next volume hasn’t been released, so it ends with a cliff hanger, enough to madden the most cynical reader.
