Table of Contents

Actually, fantasy novels belong to the fantastic. Here with us they are presented together in one category. This is not least due to the general popularity of fantasy. More and more readers are fascinated by the stories, which always remind a little of the fairy tales and legends of childhood. They mostly live from their mystical characters with all kinds of magical powers and supernatural abilities. The forms of society presented often have their origins in bygone eras.

Many fantasy authors like to base the social structures of their fictional worlds on familiar systems. If you're a real fantasy fan or just want to get a taste of this genre, you've come to the right place. We introduce you to interesting book series, which definitely offer a great insight into the broad spectrum of fantasy.

In this genre, the authors can really let off steam creatively. There are no limits to your own imagination. You create very individual, fictional worlds with fairytale protagonists. Often the readers are kidnapped into parallel worlds between which the protagonists wander. Some novels are referred to as funny fantasy. These stories are very humorous and sometimes elicit a smile from the readers. Teenage fantasy novels are aimed primarily at younger readers. These novels are designed according to the age group, but are very often read by adults as well. Romantasy books are a mix of romance novels (occasionally with a dash of eroticism) and fantasy.

annotation: The fantasy series are sorted by the surname of the author.
