Newer Fantasy Books

In part one, we focused on some wonderful books from the past and particularly in the 1950s. In this section, the focus is going to be on some of the newer fantasy books that have captured the hearts of many.

Red Sister

One of the best fantasy books that came out in 2017 would have to be Red Sister. This was written by Mark Lawrence. This is definitely a fantasy for old readers as it is all about young girls being raised to be killers. Many people consider this book to be one of those that you simply cannot put down until the last page has been read.

The Last Mortal Bond

A 2016 release written by Brian Staveley. It has just about something for everyone with topics covered such as politics, fights between characters, and siblings pitted against each other. All, of course, with the magical aura being thrown into the whole mix to truly make it a fantasy. Certainly, not a fantasy book for children.

Miss Maple’s Seeds

Not all fantasy books have to be considered bestsellers nor do they have to be the ones that have been promoted as the best. A good example of this is a simple but quite intriguing fantasy book written by Elisa Wheeler in 2013. This book focuses on a fantasy of how seeds grow and the seasons change.

Harry Potter Series

Not mentioning Harry Potter would be remiss as this series of books written by J. K. Rowling have brought great pleasure to both the young and old for many years. Some have been turned into movies and although they are truly a children’s fantasy, they are found to be delightful by everyone.

These are just a few of some of the latest fantasy writings and there are many more that could be added to the list.
