Looking for a great fantasy book? Do you always seem to get duds? You buy a book that you’ve really been looking forward to, but it ends up being a huge disappointment. So now you’ve found you’re way here looking for a home run in some of the best selling fantasy books.
Well you’re in luck. Below you’ll find a list of the best selling fantasy books as of December 1st 2018.
Just a heads up, these are the top best sellers on Amazon. And they’ve been there for quite some time. I have done some legwork for you and weeded out the books that aren’t really fantasy or are duplicates (like you probably don’t care to see Chamber of Secrets immediately after Sorcerer’s Stone, so I’ve excluded Book 2 from this list).
If you’d rather see the best selling new releases, I’ll have another post for that coming soon. Once it’s live, it’ll be linked here.

Theirs is a world of opposites. The privileged live in sky manors held aloft by a secretive magic known only as the Mysteries. Below, the earthbound poor are forced into factory work to maintain the engine of commerce. Only the wealthy can afford to learn the Mysteries, and they use their knowledge to further lock their hold on society.
4. The Magic Kingdom of Landover by Terry Brooks
Chicago lawyer Ben Holiday can’t fathom what lies ahead when he purchases Landover—a magical kingdom of chivalry and sorcery—from Meeks, the mysterious seller who placed the ad. Weary and jaded, Ben clings to the ad’s promise: “Escape into your dreams.” But Landover is not the enchanted idyll he expected.
