DAY 1. – A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just end already.

As with most of these questions this one was pretty difficult, there are so many series that I have come to the end and genuinely felt sad that I would no longer be visiting that particular county of the imagination and any that I have wished would just end already were in a positive way simply so I could experience the ending or get the pay off that I had been waiting for as opposed to just hoping it would be over.

Two such series that would fall pretty much into either category would be the Dark Tower series and the Wheel of Time, there where periods in both where I wished that they would just get on with it and bring the epic conclusion that I knew would be waiting, at the same time upon reaching that end point I couldn’t help but feel a sense of loss and a longing to return to both worlds.

Although after some careful consideration my nomination for this would have to be The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson and it would definitely fall under the “Wish had gone on Longer” category.

I loved these books, whilst only a trilogy not the usual sprawling epic of traditional fantasy series it managers to deliver an epic story in those three books that can sometimes be lacking in many a 10 book marathon

With at least to my knowledge two unique magic systems, a host of interesting and unique “monsters” a band of heroes that you can really get behind and splattering of twists along the way this is one of my favourite fantasy series and it was my enjoyment of these titles that led to faith in him to finish the Wheel of Time.

If you haven’t yet read it I strongly recommend you do, it is one that any fantasy reader and writer should pick up as an example of someone trying to do something a little different with the genre.
