This list is rather long. I like to make sure I’m going to like all the books in a series before I even think of reading the first one. You’ll see quite a few series mentioned here starting with the second book – meaning, I’ve already read the first and am still interested in reading the rest. There are also some where I haven’t read the series at all but desperately want to.
ONE BOY’S POWER TO SUMMON DEMONS WILL CHANGE THE FATE ON AN EMPIRE…
More demons, epic battle and fights to the death: introducing the unmissable next instalment in the New York Times bestselling Summoner Trilogy…
On a trial for a crime he did not commit, Fletcher must face the Inquisition who will decide his future – the process is gruelling, lead by those who will do anything to see him suffer and haunted by ghosts from the past with clues to Fletcher’s tragic origins.
But Fletcher has little time to dwell on these new revelations when the king announces a deadly challenge to the graduating students at Vocans. One that involves entering Orc territory to complete a risky mission. With loyal demons by their sides, commoners and nobles, dwarves and elves must overcome barriers of class and race and work together to triumph. The reward: a fortune in gold, the safety of an empire and PEACE. With the entire empire watching, Fletcher has much to prove, but there are those out to get him and it soon becomes clear that there’s a traitor in their midst, trying to thwart the mission and create unrest within the empire.
With everything stacked against him, Fletcher must use everything in his power to fight his way to victory.
ONE BOY’S POWER TO SUMMON DEMONS WILL CHANGE THE FATE OF AN EMPIRE…
The epic conclusion to the fantasy trilogy described as ‘Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings meets Pokemon’.
After the thrilling cliffhanger at the end of book two, we rejoin Fletcher and his friends in the ether, where they must undertake a mortally dangerous quest all the while avoiding capture by enemies and facing foes more terrifying than anything they have yet encountered.
But this is nothing compared to what truly lies ahead for Fletcher, as his nemesis, albino orc Khan, is on a mission to destroy Hominum and everything and everyone that Fletcher loves.
Epic battles, dramatic revelations and breathtaking drama await in the third book in the New York Times bestselling Summoner series.
1558: Twelve children, gifted far beyond their years, are banished by their Tudor queen to the town of Rotherweird. Some say they are the golden generation; some say the devil’s spawn. But everyone knows they are something to be revered – and feared.
Four and a half centuries on, cast adrift from the rest of England by Elizabeth I and still bound by its ancient laws, Rotherweird’s independence is subject to one disturbing condition: nobody, but nobody, studies the town or its history.
Then an Outsider arrives, a man of unparalleled wealth and power, enough to buy the whole of Rotherweird – deeply buried secrets and all…
Welcome to Rotherweird.
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…and secrets hide in every shadow.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school, and her reputation, behind to follow her mother’s trail.
Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected, he’s a street lord and a con man, but he might just be the only person who can help her.
As their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless society, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city to uncover the truth.
And she’ll need to play the game.
With each passing day, Kelsea Glynn is growing into her new responsibilities as Queen of the Tearling. By stopping the shipments of slaves to the neighbouring kingdom of Mortmesne, she crossed the Red Queen, a brutal ruler whose power derives from dark magic, who is sending her fearsome army into the Tearling to take what is hers. And nothing can stop the invasion. But as the Mort army draws even closer, Kelsea develops a mysterious connection to a time before the Crossing, and she finds herself relying on a strange and possibly dangerous ally: a woman named Lily, fighting for her life in a wrold where being female can feel like a crime. The fate of the Tearling – and that of Kelsea’s own soul – may rest with Lily and her story, but Kelsea may not have enough time to find out.
Since ascending to the throne, Kelsea Glynn has grown into a powerful monarch and a visionary leader.
But in her quest to end corruption and restore justice within the Tearling, she has made many enemies. Chief amongst them is the evil and feared Red Queen, who now holds Kelsea – and her magical sapphires – captive in her castle in Mortmesne, a deal brokered to protect the Tearling from a Mort invasion.
But the Tearling needs its Queen, and the Mace, head of Kelsea’s personal guards, will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign from her prison.
Now it is time for the fate of Queen Kelsea – and the Tearling itself – to be revealed…
There are, on closer inspection only 6 books on this list. There were 30 when I started but I vetted some out when I was writing it. The big list will be the one I have marked as ‘Detective/Crime/Murder/Mystery.’
