MARIA’S TOP TEN BOOK SERIES
This may come as a surprise since I write series, but I don’t often find book series that hold my interest long enough for me to finish. With a longer series, I rarely get past book three. Well, maybe this isn’t a total surprise to my readers as they’ve learned I write only three books in my series and then need to go on to something new and different.
And I don’t consider my books trilogies. To me, a trilogy is just one very long story spread out over three books, which means that middle book is all middle and nothing is resolved (drives me crazy). I like to think each of my books have a beginning, middle, and end with a resolution to the main conflict. There might be a few loose ends, but that’s life people!
Without further…er…ranting…here’s my list (yes, some of these are old – no comments, please ):

9 The Incarnations of Immortality, by Piers Anthony
8 Dragonsbane Series, by Barbara Hambly
