Default Series Recommendations

I am looking to start a new series. I like in-depth ones so I can get *really* into them.

Some of the ones I like (names of the first book, not the series' name):

Eragon
Golden Compass
Hunger Games
Outlander
Harry Potter
Girl w/ the Dragon Tattoo
Twilight
Game of Thrones

Authors I read a lot of:
Nora Roberts
JD Robb
Laurell K. Hamilton
Janet Evanovich
Jodi Picoult
Kay Hooper
Karen Marie Moning

I'm feeling for another fantasy-ish series but will take any suggestions.

Daughter of the Forest (The Sevenwater's Trilogy Book 1)

That's the first book of the series and I really love it. I like a lot of the books by that author in general too.

Tamora Peirce stuff is my YA fantasy crack and always fun.

I know all these amazing books and whenever asked my mind blanks. I'll come up with some more since Fantasy is my favorite!

Ender's Game, omg favorite book series EVER.

http://www.amazon.com/Enders-Game-En.../dp/0812550706

There are 4 books in the "regular" series, and another 4 (5? 6?) in the parallel series, plus a couple random other books. SO GOOD, and I hate 99% of sci fi stuff.

The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. Should keep you busy for a while, lol! Seriously... it's great. The last one (14th) will be out in January too.

Otherwise two other series that are not finished yet - The Name of the Wind from Patrich Rothfuss (second one is the Wise Man's Fear, waiting for the 3rd). Really good.

And I absolutely loved The way of Kings from Brandon Sanderson (he's the person finishing the Wheel of Time series too). But it's just the first one of a series of 10 probably... he's writing the second one right now. All that's fantasy. The Mistborn series by Sanderson is really good too.

If you like space opera, anything by Peter F.Hamilton too. Loved the series that started with Pandora Star (it's 5 books total... I think? First series is 2 then the second is 2 or 3). Another great one (6 books) starts with the Reality Disfunction.

Neil Gaiman's work if you haven't although it's not a series. He uses a lot of the same motifs in his work. For any sci-fi/fantasy fan, I think he's a must read.

Dune is good although I really wasn't fond of the books past the first two. But the first two are really good.

Lord of the Rings is always a good one. I know a lot of people get stuck on the writing style though.

Ender's Game is good.

I know I have a lot more sci-fi/fantasy but my mind is blanking.

I've read a couple of Martha Well's books and liked them a lot.

All of these authors have series:

Raymond E. Feist, Kristen Britian's Greenrider series is really good, Trudi Caravan, Anne Bishop is an amazing author if you like dark fantasy with adult content. If you're looking for a good light-hearted fantasy I always recommend Donita K. Paul. I always read her when I'm feeling depressed.

Karen Miller King Maker King Breaker series *2 books*: http://www.amazon.com/Innocent-Mage-...e+karen+miller

Personally Brent Weeks series is probably one of my most favorite series ever.

They are both great authors and have both responded when I emailed them
