ARRG! This is the third time I've tried to post this message! It's annoying when you have to put up the same stinkin' long message! *twich twich*
*takes deep breaths* Okay. That's better. Now where was I? Right, I won't be able to take part in this since I'm already reading a large book series that's going to take quite a bit of tim to finish, but I'll recommend a few of my favorites. Here are some books I've read that are really thick, in a series, and very well written. When I say 'thick' for a book, I mean 600+ pages. I copied and pasted the synopsis because I don't want to accidentally post too much about it and spoil them. Here I go again.
1) Magyk, first book in the Septimus heap series: The seventh son of the seventh son, aptly named Septimus Heap, is stolen the night he is born by a midwife who pronounces him dead. That same night, the baby's father, Silas Heap, comes across a bundle in the snow containing a new born girl with violet eyes. The Heaps take this helpless newborn into their home, name her Jenna, and raise her as their own. But who is this mysterious baby girl, and what really happened to their beloved son Septimus?
2) Eragon, first book in the series Inheritance: Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy- until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save - or destroy- the Empire.
3) Eye of the World, first book in the Wheel of time series: The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
4) Legacies, first book in the Corean Chronicles: Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great civilization that spanned a continent, and ended a golden age. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of struggling humans, strange animals and elusive supernatural creatures. Though much has been forgotten, it is still a place of magical powers, and of a few people who are Talented enough to use them.Even as a child, Alucius showed very strong Talent. He was warned never to reveal it, lest others seek to exploit it.
Okay, and now I have a few books that either aren't in a series, or aren't that thick. The only book here That I haven't read is 'Under the Dome', but someone I know has and they say it's really good. I believe that it is 1,000-1,200 pages long. I plan on reading it after I'm done with the series I'm reading.
5) Lone Wolf, first book in the Wolves of the Beyond: Away from her pack, her mate and the MacDuncan wolf clan, she-wolf Morag gives birth to three wolf pups. Two of them are tawny and perfect --- like their father. The third is silver gray and has a light splay on one of its front paws. Morag thinks her silver pup is perfect, too, but she knows his defective paw will brand him as malcadh, the ancient wolf word for “cursed.” As a malcadh, the silver pup must be taken away from his mother and Morag and her mate banished to protect the pack’s bloodlines. (Note: this is nothing like the Warriors Series)
6) Under the Dome: On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.
7) House of the Scorpion, next/last book, Lord of Opium: Between the U.S.A. and Aztlán (once called Mexico) lies a strip of land, known as Opium, the name of its chief product. It is ruled by a 146-year-old drug lord known as El Patrón. His fields are tilled by illegal immigrants, called "eejits," who have computer chips implanted in their brains so that they can be kept in slavery. Matt, a boy who is confined in a cottage on El Patrón estate, manages to break out, only to find himself treated like an animal. Eventually he learns why. The tattoo on his foot, "Property of Alacrán Estates,"
8) Secret of the Sierens, first in the Companions Quartet: When eleven-year-old Connie is sent to live with her eccentric aunt by the sea, she’s not expecting anything great—not to make friends with Col, the coolest guy in town, and certainly not to discover that mythical creatures still exist, that an ancient society has protected them for centuries, and that a dark and treacherous force is lurking in their midst.
I was going to put covers too, but I'm too annoyed with the stupid thing to do it.
