Some YA series are fantastic reads – that is, until you get to the ending of the last book and find yourself throwing it across the room yelling, ‘Why, oh but why?’ As readers we invest time and often an irrational amount of emotion into these books so it’s nice to have them maintain their awesomeness right to the last page. Here are some series that in my opinion, remained kick-arse the entire way through.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor
The story of Karou is exquisitely written by Laini Taylor in this series of love, betrayal, monsters and angels as you’ve never experienced before.
Fire and Thorns Trilogy by Rae Carson
Rae Carson’s Fire and Thorns Trilogy will have you cheering and crying as you follow Princess Elisa’s journey from an awkward, spoilt royal to hero and champion of the people.
Graceling Realm (The Seven Kingdoms) by Kristin Cashore
Rather than a trilogy, the three books in the Graceling Realm series are companion books. Together they weave a magical, dangerous and breathtaking world for the series’ heroines.
Fallen by Lauren Kate
Luce and Daniel’s struggle to be together spans centuries, continents and four books in Lauren Kate’s Fallen series. Theirs is an epic tale; one that will leave you exhausted but sated.
Legend by Marie Lu
There are a lot of great dystopian series out there but Marie Lu’s Legend is one that really delivers. Life couldn’t be more different for military prodigy June, and street kid (and government enemy) Day. The frightening future world presented by Lu is one that is a very real possibility.
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
This series is one that starts of well but gets even better as it goes on. The characters are multi-faceted and the different story arcs create worlds that weave together beautifully. The Wicked Lovely series is a faery tale of frighteningly cool proportions.
