The night may be dark and full of terrors, but the year is bright and full of incredible books to get you through. We have a reading challenge. These novels have everything from snarky assassins to clever, magic manipulating girls. Becuase, really, the genre just keeps getting better. We included both sequels, standalones, and series starters below, but made sure to designate if anything was part of a preexisting series.
Fantasy has transformed from a niche genre into a mainstream phenomenon in the past few decades, which is great news for those who loved it from the beginning. Our picks for the most magical sagas out there are below in chronological order. Let us know in the comments if we missed one of your favorite fantasies, and we'll be sure to add it to our to-be-read list! Often overlooked by modern fantasy readers, The Once and Future King is a reimagining of the classic tale of King Arthur, with Lancelot portrayed as incredibly ugly and Merlin living his life backward in time. Though the book is telling an ancient story, it diverges from the old version to deal with much more modern issues, such as fascism and the perils of ruling through power. Want more great books?
