Here is my list of 4 Great Harry Potter Alternatives, because why read those when there are other fantasy series out there you might just love even more.
#1 – Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – and basically all his other series – are perfect alternatives to Harry Potter. The series follows Percy Jackson, a demigod who discovers the true nature of his birth and has to navigate a new and dangerous world of ancient Greek gods and monsters.
#2 – The Wardstone Chronicles by Joseph Delaney
Also known as The Last Apprentice, The Wardstone Chronicles by Joseph Delaney was the series I started reading as a kid once I had finished Harry Potter and wanted something new. Thomas Ward is the main character in this series, and we follow him as the apprentice to the local Spook – they battle with witches, boggarts, and even old Gods. This is a series you won’t want to miss!
#3 – Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
The young genius, Artemis Fowl, is one of my favourite characters in middle-grade fiction. Alongside his bodyguard and allies he picks up throughout the books, Artemis sets out to unravel the mysteries of the fairies – and steal their gold. In every book there are fantastic twists and enthralling characters.
#4 – The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
I have included The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini on this list because it’s a fantasy world you can get lost in without having to try very hard. It’s tropey and strongly influenced by Tolkien’s work, but it’s fantastic! With a young farm boy, Eragon, who discovers a dragon egg and goes on to battle an evil king, what isn’t there to like?
The Spooks Apprentice sounds so good!
It’s one of my absolute favourite series from growing up!!
I just finished reading The Seven Stones by Robb Arbuckle and it is amazing! The world building and characters are wonderful. No wonder everyone is calling it the next Harry Potter.
