    "All you need to know is it is Stephen King. This series is one of his best though not as well known as many others. It is an older series but as with all Stephen King, it is timeless and scary. If you like to scare yourself before you go to sleep, this is a great book."

    "The Lord of the Rings is a classic fantasy book that any fans of the genre should pick up. As a huge fan of the movies, the books do it even more justice by providing a lot more detail and leaves the reader to have deep imaginations of the world and story it tells. I highly recommend this title."

    "This is a delightful and fantastical read. Neil Gaiman has a way of weaving a narrative that is spellbinding and immersive. The fantasy world is bolstered by illustrations that add richness to the story. A solid fantasy that appealed to both me and my daughter."

    "I needed a new book to read, and being a fan of fantasy and dystopian novels, I came across The Handmaid's Tale. I really liked the spin this book had on a dystopia, resulting in a theocratic government rather then zombies or whatever, and I really enjoyed my time reading the book. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the genre looking for something new."

    "I've been looking for a new series of fantasy book to read and this caught my eye on amazon. I knew this was going to be amazing before even buying it. Almost 300 reviews, and almost flat 5 stars, it looked great. I was not wrong. The trilogy was packed with detail and character development. I truly felt like I was in the middle ages when reading the book."

    "With the Game of Thrones trend as popular as it is, I decided to hop on the bandwagon and read the series. Fantasy is my favourite genre, so it just made sense to start reading them. I was instantly hooked. The shifting point-of-views show what's happening all over Westeros and Essos to get a full immersive picture of the world. If only the series were finished, though. It's been a long wait between books."

    "I'm a huge fan of the movies but never got around to reading the books. This set of 7 paperbacks was the perfect way for me to pick up a collectible and enjoy the stories in their original form."

    "I was looking for a new series of fantasy books to start reading and decided to try out the Hunger Game series that others had always recommended to me. I started reading the first book and was a little skeptical that I would actually like it, but next thing I knew I had finished the third book and wanted more. This series is so captivating and I highly recommend it to everyone!"

    "The level of literature this series is on is unmatched by any other. I've never read anything like it, it's almost too much to take in a at once. The action and characters are by far what stand out the most in this series. It's kind of like rooting for your favorite sports team and their star players, but except they die. I highly recommend reading the series as you watch the show, because the series is definitely more detailed than the show"

    "An entertaining read; I didn't put it down. That said, I wasn't really invested in Kvothe -- he's too obvious a Marty Stu stand-in for Rothfuss. When your main character's selling point is he's unequaled, and you're not writing about Superman, it's pretty hard for mere mortals to really feel a connection. Still, the narrative did flow and I didn't feel as though my money was wasted in buying The Name of the Wind."

    "The Dark Glory War is an enthralling tale of young warriors facing becoming men in a time when survival is a battle. I think that young male and female readers would love the story and the fantasy behind it. Luckily, it is a prelude to a very interesting series of books for those who want to keep reading!"

    "Recently reading the Game of Thrones books has kindled an intense interest in reading more fantasy novels, but the trouble is finding good fantasy novels to quench that thirst. I've read Lord of the Rings, but what do I read now? I decided to give Peter Brett's "The Demon Cycle" a read since it fits in an interesting fantasy survival setting that appeals to me. Very few books make me want to spend every waking minute reading the next page to see what happens. This book series does that. Its survival situation where demons are oppressing humans and you have a few protagonists trying to overturn the tides is definitely an engrossing theme."

    "One of my favorite fantasy books, Shadows of the Apt, is a fantastic action-filled story. The author, Adrian Tchaikovsky, does an excellent job of building the world around you and making you feel like you are in the action."
