What are some good fantasy/sci-fi books for teens.?

I'm 14, and these are my absolute favourite genres. But I can't find anymore ones that appeal to me.

I've read many, and I'm not really into the whole girly Sarah Dessen thing. I like action, with a little bit of that girlyness :) Things like the Hunger games, Harry Potter, Uglies, etc. I've read a lot, so I'll hope to see some new ones :D

    The Incomplete Enchanter.

    "The "Harold Shea" Stories is a name given to a series of five science fantasy stories by the collaborative team of L. Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt and to its later continuation by de Camp alone, Christopher Stasheff, Holly Lisle, John Maddox Roberts, Roland J. Green, Frieda A. Murray, Tom Wham, and Lawrence Watt-Evans. De Camp and Stasheff collectively oversaw the continuations. The series is also known as the "Enchanter" series, the "Incomplete Enchanter series" after the first collection of them, or the "Compleat Enchanter" series.

    In the original stories psychologist Harold Shea and his colleagues Reed Chalmers, Walter Bayard, and Vaclav Polacek (Votsy), travel to various parallel worlds where ancient myths and legends are reality. In the course of their travels other characters are added to the main cast, notably Belphebe and Florimel, who become the wives of Shea and Chalmers, and Pete Brodsky, a policeman who is accidentally swept up into the chaos. In the later continuations the most notable addition to the cast is Voglinda, the young daughter of Shea and Belphebe."

    The series is pretty funny at times. I read them many years ago and never forgot them.

    Artemis Fowl (Eoin Colfer) is a really good series! So is The Alchemyst Series (Michael Scott, i think) and A Series that starts with The Exiled Queen as book one and a book is The Supernaturalists (Eoin Colfer, I think) and Another series is The Witch and Wizard Series by James Patterson and another series is one that begins with The Warrior Heir (Cinda Chima, or something like that). I could go on all day on the subject but I'll just stop now lol

    Source(s): I'm 14, and love fantasy/sci-fi books also! lol

    Have you tried Garth Nix' "Abhorsen Chronicles" trilogy? "Sabriel", "Lirael", and "Abhorsen" are the titles.

    I also recommend Meredith Ann Pierce's "DarkAngel" trilogy: "The DarkAngel", "A Gathering of Gargoyles", and "The Pearl of the Soul of the World".
