Hi, I have just written a Fantasy Adventure - Mouse and the Dragon Crystal - try the free sample and see if it's something for you? It starts off quite up-beat but gets quite 'dark' as the story unfolds!
Good Luck !

House of night series by P.C and Kristin Cast are pretty good books.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead series the spin off series for Vampire Academy are amazing!
Fallen series Lauren Kate these are really great.
Morganville vampire series Rachel Caine fantstic books
all are amazing books but since you've read the VA series i'd think you,d enjoy them the most...

Try the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon (The Naming/The Gift is the first book).
Full of adventure and magic.

I checked out some of the forums on here earlier this month and I too downloaded Brian, His Granddad & The Cup of Ages. I'm about half way through it and enjoying it hugely. Thanks to whoever it was who suggested it to begin with!

Hi HPfan99,
Since you enjoyed the books you listed, I believe my novel would be a good fit for you. Since it's Kindle, you can always download the free sample and decide for yourself. It's gotten great reviews so far. If you give it a read, I sincerely hope you enjoy it.

Edgewood (Edgewood Series) (It's the first in a series, but the story can stand alone--no annoying cliff hanger...)

Dissidence by Jamie Canosa is a new Y/A book that was amazing. Not quite like Harry Potter but if you like Divergent or Hunger Games you'll love it

Just checked out the Percy Jackson series and it seems to be cheaper to buy the books rather than the digital download!? Mad?! Instead, I've just download the Brian, His Granddad & the cup of ages book as this has been mentioned a few times on here. Hope it's good!

I would recommend the mortal instruments or infernal devices series, as they are about shadowhunters who hunt demons. It is set in the human world, referred to as mundanes in the book, but there are also the fey, nightchildren and werewolves, but not in the way twilight portrays them at all! They really are amazing books.

Just wanted to say that I downloaded Brian, His Granddad & The Cup of Ages. Loved it but doesn't look as though there's a sequel yet which is rather a shame. Would definitely recommend it.

I would suggest the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan although, for some reason, the Kindle versions of the books are a little expensive. I too have recently downloaded Brian, His Granddad and the Cup of Ages and also The Time Hunters which are both very good and cheaper too!

You might enjoy this new YA action & adventure, four-part series for Kindle. #1 INTO THE DARK SERIES: Part 1 by Milly Silver. £1.94.

"The only three people in the world who I truly loved were my best friend, Ben, my Uncle Spencer and his fiancée, Irene. I am now grateful for what I didn't know on that sunny afternoon. One of them would soon be lost to me. The other two, I was destined to kill without hesitation or remorse.
It wasn't premeditated.
It was what needed to be done.
So I did it."

Success means love. Failure a death sentence.

When seventeen-year-old Oxford student Emily Baxter steps forward to become part of the search and rescue team for her kidnapped family member, she sees it as her last chance to put things right. Despite her seizures and being ripped between parallel universes, Emily is determined to get back to living a normal life. But first Emily has to join forces with the mysterious Gifted & Talented set and the darkly beautiful Henry Seadon. And survive. Killing the Misery-Makers who get in their way is a necessary evil.

This is the first installment of an exciting brand-new four-part YA action adventure series, INTO THE DARK SERIES #1-4 by British YA author, Milly Silver. It's a story of family, love, loss, and being uniquely gifted.

Just downloaded Brian, His Granddad & The Cup of Ages. Thanks Littleduck!

I would recommend Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn - it's about a boy who is trained to be an Otori warrior in a slightly mythical feudal-era Japan. It's the first in the Tales of the Otori series.

Also Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy - Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass - is incredible.

How funny! I see the book, Brian, His Granddad & the Cup of Ages, has been suggested. The author came to my daugter's school last month and read some of his book. We bought a copy and have both read it now and, I too, would thoroughly recommend it. My daughter has read the "Wimpy Kid" books and she had no trouble with the Cup of Ages.

You may also like 'Brian, His Granddad & the Cup of Ages'. Very similar to Harry Potter as it has magic, wizards and wonderful characters. It's the next best thing to Harry Potter for me. Just a shame there's only one book in the series so far. I really enjoyed it and so did my son.

I think Charlie Higson's and Robert Muchamore's books are brilliant. Muchamore's the recruit seris ahs been compared to Harry Potter, but without the magic - you do still have the same relationships between the students - but this time it's a school for spies - not wizards. If you like any thing slightly scary you will love The Enemy by Higson.
