Top 5 teen fantasy series

Did the end of "Harry Potter" leave a hole in your life? Here are five fantasy series geared towards teens that adults will love too. They may not be "Harry Potter" – but they're very good!

The Uglies, by Scott Westerfeld, Simon Pulse.

1. "The Maze Runner" series, by James Dashner

The Maze Runner series, by James Dashner, Random House Children's Books.

This three-part series – made up of "The Maze Runner," "The Scorch Trials," and "The Death Cure" – centers on a teen named Thomas as he fights to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. He wakes up one morning, memory gone, in a glade in the middle of a massive, dangerous maze, and must work with a band of "Gladers" to escape. But that's only the first of the trials he has to go through. It's an absorbing, action-packed series – think "Harry Potter" and "The Hunger Games" combined.
