And a very sneaky, insidious piece of it, as well!

I'm starting with the only series that is not particularly YA, but if you especially liked the dragon from the Inheritance series, and if you don't mind a bit of history, I recommend the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik, starting withTemeraire (Temeraire 1) [a.k.a. His Majesty's Dragon]

As to the futuristics, I liked these very much:
The Gone series by Michael Grant (first book: Gone)
The Tomorrow Girls series by Eva Gray (first book: Tomorrow Girls #1: Behind the Gates)
The Numbers trilogy by Rachel Ward (so far, I've only read the first two books, but they were very good)

Other books/series I love, are:
Old Magic by Marianne Curley
City of Bones (Mortal Instruments) by Cassandra Clare
Sweep, Volume 1: Book of Shadows/The Coven/Blood Witch (Sweep 3 in 1) by Cate Tiernan. These are the first 3 books in one bind-up and there are 15 books (5 bind-ups) in total, but you'll fly through them. Well, I did.
Balefire Omnibus by Cate Tiernan
Dark Visions Bind-Up: The Strange Power, The Possessed, The Passion by L.J. Smith
And also L.J. Smith's Secret Circle trilogy (first bind-up: The Secret Circle: Initiation AND The Captive Part v. 1)

Good luck and happy reading!

Sabriel, by Garth Nix.
Simply the best YA fantasy I've yet encountered.

Yes, fair enough, sorry. Error of judgement, I am fairly new to this game.

Cheers, Alan. It's a shame, because it was quite a clever idea. Unfortunately, that could easily rouse the wrath of some ... good thing it was only Garscadden and me that picked you up on it! :-)

(I removed the plug of my book from this post)

There is actually a lot of choice out there but I find it odd recommending books as people often get something different out of a book than I do. It's a very personal thing.

I think many of us have given a book to someone and the bits you liked said were good but then "This was the bit I found best" is what you get back.

I found this a lot when doing my book - the 4 main characters people like different ones and the parts of it people tended to be drawn to different bits, its just odd :)

Have you read the Black Magician trilogy by Trudi Canavan? If not then you should pick up the first book, The Magicians' Guild and give that a go.

If vampires are your thing, I would really recommend Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires series, starting with Glass Houses.

i've just reveiwed this one and i think its a great fit in the YA fanstasy market and its only 99p - well worth it.

I love Hazel's suggestions, I think I'll try a few of those.
Vampires are my thing, suddenly, so I'll check out the Morganville Vampires series; thanks Lynne :-)
I've just read Vampire's Nemesisi by Andrew Newbound and that was good. So vampire fans could try that too.

Jaspar Fforde - he has written a couple of books for younger adults, as good as his adult stuff, which means they are pretty d**m good!
