Other Classic Series
Anne McCaffery- McCaffery is a well-known and loved author in the sci-fi/fantasy world, with her Dragonriders of Pern series being one of the few that truly inhabits both worlds with ease. Book 1 -- Dragonflight.
Ursula K. Le Guin- Le Guin’s Earthsea Cycle (originally a trilogy, later expanded) is a wonderful introduction to epic fantasy beginning with the first book, A Wizard of Earthsea, a coming of age tale about a young wizard’s apprentice, Sparrowhawk.
J.R.R. Tolkien The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit
The classic high fantasy good vs. evil battle in a world that resembles medieval Europe. Not as much political intrigue, but plenty of bloodshed, suspense, and even—in the case of The Hobbit—dragons.
Pearl River may own some titles in these series, but not the first volume.
