Myth Adventure series by Robert Asprin.
He is great!
The Long Earth series by Pratchett and Baxter
The Saviors Champion by Jenna Moreci
I have so many. Nightwalker serie by Jocelynn Drake. Vampire style book.
Dakota Banks series is also really good and not well known. It’s hard to find as they stopped publishing it and she doesn’t have the rights back yet
The daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. Wonderfully different and simmering with passion!
The Dark Secrets Series by Angela Hudson.
The Soul Forge Saga.
The Symphony of Ages series by Elizabeth Haydon.
The first book “Rhapsody” is marvelous.
The Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peake
The Book of the New Sun series by Gene Wolfe
Three Worlds by Ian Irvine
I feel like Seanan McGuire’s Toby Day series is underrated. I love it
Unicorn Mountain by Michael Bishop
The Time Traveller’s Resort and Museum y David McLain
Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone series by Greg Keyes.
Exoskeleton by Shane Stadler. The second in the series, Tympanum is even better… but it’s been a long wait for the third. I believe it’s out in October. Very good books from a relatively unknown author.
The MaddAddam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood, John Dies at The End by David Wong (sequel This Book Is Full of Spiders, not as good.), The Postmortal by Drew Magary, How to Stop Time by Matt Haig, DeerSkin by Robin McKinley, and Hell by Robert Olen Butler, The Bones of the Moon, White Apples and Glass Soup all by Jonathan Carroll.
Wayfarer series by Becky Chambers
The Annals of the Western Shore trilogy by Ursula K Le Guin.
Murderbot series by Martha Wells.
It’s about an introverted security robot who just wants to be left alone to bleed after a scuffle to watch her shows.
Anything by R. A. Salvatore. He is a master of fantasy and his books suck you in.
Not totally underrated, but Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan! It’s honestly amazing, but people are so afraid of the length they never give it a shot ?
My husband reads him. Where he gets those books he’s usually pretty useless until he’s done lol
The Daedalus Trilogy by Michael J Martinez.
The Many Worlds series Anna Jarzab
Valdemar series by Mercedes lackey
The Dresden files jim butcher
One of my favorites!
The books of Connie Willis, especially Doomsday Book and the ones that followed it.
And the WWII ones.
@Brittany Yes, Blackout and All Clear. ? Also To Say Nothing of the Dog. I loved all four of the Oxford Time Travel books!
never could get into the genre, but always heard super awesome things about Dune.
The black jewels trilogy by Anne Bishop. I love her characters and the way she weaves them into her world.
The Underland Chronicles
I might be wrong but I feel like The Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs is a bit underrated
