The Perfect Trilogies

They are a legend in book world. Some say they might not exist. Some have never experienced them. But they do exist. And I have peeped it with my bookish eyes: The Perfect Trilogy. A series of books where each book is better than the last, where there is no dip in pace or storytelling, where you are permanently on the edge of your seat and in awe of the author’s sheer brilliance. To celebrate the completion of our very own Perfect Trilogy with Witch’s Pyre by Josephine Angelini FINALLY out in the world, I am here to give you a few more to keep you satisfied. Hold onto your hats.

The Worldwalker Trilogy by Josephine Angelini
                Trial By Fire, Firewalker, Witch's Pyre

RIGHT! We gotta talk because if you've not read this series or started reading this series, we're going to have a problem. This series is all about Lily Proctor, a girl who is alergic to practically everything, who is transported to an alternate universe version of Salem, where she is confronted by her alternate universe self, Lillian. What makes Lily weak in her own world, gives her strength in New Salem where not only does she have to try and same the world, she has to try and deal with a love she never expected to come her way. It is all kinds of epic and YOU JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU READ THIS LAST BOOK THOUGH!! AH!

Half Bad by Sally Green
                Half Bad, Half Wild, Half Lost

No, but this series though! I LOVED Half Bad so so much and had no idea just how intense/beautiful/gripping/completely insane the follow up Half Wild and finale Half Lost would be. A story told in a world of witches, both the dark and the light, Nathan is half and half, persecuted for being a half-code and considered a danger because of his parentage. It is dark and intense, brooding and gorgeous, romantic and wonderful, it has everything PLUS gorgeous French boy Gabriel. Yum!

The Curse Workers by Holly Black
                White Cat, Red Glove, Black Heart

I MEAN! An urban fantasy set in a world of people called Workers, each with a different set of powers that can change their luck, people’s emotions or even their memories. Cassell Sharpe (*heart eyes*) comes from a large worker family though he himself has no worker abilities. The series is a journey into a dark underworld of Workers all game to screw each other over to be on top all revolving around Cassell, a malevolent crime lord and the power of the touch of a hand. It is beyond epic and one of the most incredible thrill rides. I read all three in a week. Addictive reading at its very best.

The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
                The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Ask and the Answer, Monsters of Men

I AM STILL NOT OVER IT! I AM NOT OVER ANY OF IT! I am a massive fan of Patrick Ness and The Knife of Never Letting Go was the third book of his that I read (A Monster Calls and More Than This came first, both perfect, go get ‘em!) It takes us to the New World and a place called Prentisstown. All the women have been killed off by a virus and all the men have been infected by the Noise, meaning they can hear each other’s thoughts. Todd Hewitt is about to become a man when he finds Viola, a girl surrounded by a patch of silence. What ensues is a gripping three book epic that is heart breaking, gut wrenching and gave me so many tears. It’s stunning. It does not let up, not even for a second!

So there is my personal list of trilogies I consider to be totally and completely perfect. Tell us what your favourite trilogies are over on twitter @MyKindabook
