I make it harder and just name 1 by every author, or this list will contain exclusively Robin Hobb, Jennifer Fallon & Brian McClellan! Also, it HAS to be concluded and I must have read all 3 books.
Demon Child Trilogy / Jennifer Fallon
Or any other trilogy by the author! She’s one of my all-time favourites and I adore her writing. It’s witty, magical, has the best scheming and court politics and I love the characters! The Demon Child trilogy was the first I read, that’s why it will always have a special place in my heart^^ But I can also recommend the Hythrun Chronicles or the Second Sons Trilogy.
Powder Mage Trilogy / Brian McClellan
Flintlock Fantasy at its best! Definitely real page-turners that have everything you need in a good Fantasy story. And guns. LOTS of guns. The second trilogy is just as good if not even better, but I still have to read the last part of it.
Tawny Man Trilogy / Robin Hobb
This is standing for all the Hobb trilogies, cause I love them all the same! I am really digging those covers, even though I can’t find them anymore and scummy bookdepository sent me the wrong versions 😦
MaddAddam Trilogy / Margaret Atwood
Ok, I’m cheating a little, because this is more of a Dystopian novel. It’s one of the few where the 2nd book is actually the best and the first the weakest!
Of course there’s a Sanderson series in my list^^ And another one that got better with every book. The last one is brilliant and I want to re-read it one day.
The Paper Magician / Charlie N. Holmberg
Now this is just too cute! Has a really adorable magic system and a perfect teacher/student relationship that turns into a slow-burn romance. I was very much entertained and want more books like these!
The Winternight Trilogy / Katherine Arden
I loved the atmosphere in this! And even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the last book and the ending it remains one of my favourite recent trilogies. Book 1 is still the best!
Rhapsody Trilogy / Elizabeth Haydon
Now, this is a proper Mary Sue^^ Rhapsody is incredibly annoying because she is waaaay too powerful & beautiful, but I was loving the world and am having fond memories. I read this in my teens and even though I would probably not like it much anymore, it kinda stayed with me.
Honorable mentions – trilogies I haven’t finished yet but believe would be in this list:
- 1Q84 / Haruki Murakami
- The Hollow Gods / Rebecca Levene
- The Poppy War / R.F. Kuang
- Worldbreaker Saga / Kameron Hurley
- Kingkiller Chronicle / Pat Rothfuss
What do we learn? I don’t actually read as many trilogies as I thought and most are by the same authors. Also, I got some trilogies still to finish and a lot that I actually finished ended up being average due to messed up endings. YES, Queen of the Tearling Trilogy, I’m talking about YOU^^
