The fantasy genre features many book series that span multiple volumes and brim with complex worldbuilding. Fantasy fans have learned to be patient as they wait for the next book in ongoing fantasy sagas such as George R.R. 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.
Whether you prefer classic fantasy subgenres such as epic fantasy, urban fantasy, and high fantasy, or are drawn instead to low fantasy worlds, hard fantasy, and grimdark, The Portalist has a fantasy book series to recommend to you.
