There have been many successful fantasy novels over the years and we have seen a lot of them being adapted for the big screen or the small screen over the years. We have seen a lot of these fantasy novels becoming hugely successful movies and TV shows, including the likes of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones but there are plenty more that have yet to get adapted. Here we take a look at some of the fantasy novels that we would like to see adapted.
First up we have the novel The Word and the Void from author Terry Brooks. The Word and the Void could give us a fantastic new fantasy trilogy, with there being three books in the series. With plenty of interesting character arcs and the potential to show them ageing between films, it definitely has the potential to captivate the audience and keep them wanting more. We have no doubt that fantasy movie fans would soon buy into The Word and the Void trilogy.
Next up we have The Wild Magic series, which come from author Tamora Pierce. The Wild Magic series gives us another heroine, which movie fans seem to be loving at the moment and, with Hollywood calling for more roles for women, another female led fantasy movie could be perfect. The Wild Magic has everything a young adult movie needs to be successful, including a love story to go along with the action. Done right, this could be a fantastic fantasy movie series. Done wrong though and we could have another cheesefest.
Finally we have the fantastic Katherine Kerr books from the Deverry Cycle, which would definitely serve best as a television series. There are fifteen books in the Deverry Cycle which have been split up into four different sagas. The Deverry Saga, The Westlands Saga, The Dragon Mage Saga, and The Silver Wyrm Saga. There is plenty of materials for a long running television series and there are a lot of interesting characters in The Deverry Cycle to keep fans on board. We are actually surprised that nobody has decided to do this yet.
