“The Lord of the Rings” series by J.R.R. Tolkien

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

The famous fantasy novel by J.R.R. Tolkien has won praise from readers all around the world as the best adventure story ever written.

He receives assistance from a band of improbable heroes along the journey, including the wise wizard Gandalf, the devoted Samwise Gamgee, and the valiant warriors Aragorn and Legolas.

This bestselling series is about Eragon, a fifteen-year-old, who believes he has made the fortunate discovery of a young farm kid when he discovers a polished blue stone in the wilderness. Eragon quickly understands, however, that he has stumbled upon a legacy that is almost as old as the Empire itself when the stone produces a dragon hatchling.

Overnight, his modest life is upended, and with nothing more than an old sword, a devoted dragon, and wise counsel from a wise man, Eragon finds himself drawn into a perilous tangle of magic, glory, and power. His decisions today could either rescue or destroy the Empire.

“The Kingkiller Chronicle” series by Patrick Rothfuss

My name is Kvothe.

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

The story of a hero told in his own voice is unique in fantasy literature, and it begins with that. It is a story of suffering, surviving, and how one man’s quest for meaning in the universe—and the unwavering resolve that fueled it—gave rise to a legend.
