The fantasy genre features many book series that span multiple volumes and brim with complex worldbuilding.

Martin’s a Song of Ice and Fire series, or Patrick Rothfuss’ The Kingkiller Chronicle. Thankfully, completed fantasy series such as J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings or The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson can provide readers with the closure they’re looking for.
