    This is probably the best series I've read. It is considered to be Fiction Fantasy. I stumbled upon it by simply looking for a "thick" book to read. I was in the book store and saw a really thick paperback and it was the first book in the series:

    The Eye of the World

    The series is at 14 books now. The audio version is very well done also. The author, Robert Jordan actually passed away due to cancer, but before he died he met with a young author and planned out the rest of the series so that the fans would not go without. Brandon Sanderson took over and has done a great job.

    If you enjoy Fiction Fantasy novels, you won't be disappointed in this. I am however doubting that anyone who already enjoys Fiction Fantasy doesn't already know about The Wheel of Time series.

    Even if you don't think you enjoy Fiction Fantasy novels, give the first book a try. I'll be surprised if you don't enjoy it.

    I finally started the series over and am now on book 10 of 14. Awesome books. If you're a Tolkien fan, I'd say you'll love these books. I prefer them to Tolkien actually.

    You can start with New Spring and roll right into The Eye of the World. New Spring was written after, but it takes place before The Eye of the World.

    Great series. Loved it.

    Humans and some “created” evil critters.

    Robert Jordan is an excellent author. Brandon Sanderson who finished the series after Jordan died is an excellent author. Brandon Sanderson has some excellent books as well.

    Sanderson and Jordan are two of my favorite authors.

    Is this similar to the Tolkien books?
