Best Fantasy Book Series

The Chronicles of Mara Lantern


The Chronicles of Mara Lantern starts with a young woman, Mara, surviving a plane crash. She later discovers the other survivors are from another dimension.

Although the concept of the first book in the series, Broken Realms, is a good one, the execution is poor. Our biggest problems with the book were several unbelievable scenes and forced conflict. One example is a detective that sees proof that someone can read minds. He has no curiosity about it. He simply ignores the evidence. Do you find that believable? What would your response be to finding out someone could read minds? You can read more examples in the book review.

For us, Broken Realms was filled with too much lazy writing. For this reason, The Chronicles of Mara Lantern series makes the Worst Fantasy Series list.
