Oh, definitely. I enjoyed the whole Worlds of Solace collection. (Hope there are more!)

Gregg Millman | 2 comments My 9 year old son and I are reading book 2 in the MAX EINSTEIN series. It's a spy adventure about a genius girl who tries to solve the world's problems with real science...while avoiding being kidnapped by The Corp.

Critter (abookwormcalledcritter) | 20 comments Some of my favorite adventure series which include fantasy elements are the Endling series by Katherine Applegate and Tui T. Sutherland’s Wings of Fire series. I also love Roland Smith's Cryptid Hunters series which adds more sci-fi elements as the series progresses.

A little different kind of adventure series, but for me nothing beats Brian Jacques's Redwall books.

Karen Cossey | 1 comments I also love Percy Jackon and also Artemis Fowl. It's been around awhile now, but my kids also loved 39 Clues (we read the whole series while driving through Europe for 6 months! Helped that my kids are called Daniel and Amy, just like the kids in the series)

R. Fulleman (rfulleman) | 2 comments The Ranger’s Apprentice series by Flanagan is a great adventure series. He has two spinoff series as well. I also liked Haddix’s “The Missing” series.

Louie | 73 comments I suggest The Serpent's Secret by Sayantani Dasgupta and Into the Land of the Unicorns by Bruce Coville. They are both thrilling adventure fantasies that are also series starters. Oooh, I can't forget about The Flame of Olympus by Kate O' Hearn, that's a great fantasy inspired by roman mythology.

Kim Sheibley | 2 comments Hi Rue2! There are SO many amazing MG adventure series! I totally recommend the Unwanteds by Lisa McMann; the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyers (1st book is Cinder); the Magisterium series by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare (1st book is The Iron Trial); the Alanna books by Tamora Pierce; the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan; and The Summoner series by Taran Matharu. And, of course, anything by Rick Riordan! (I'm anxiously awaiting the next Apollo and Magnus books!!)

Camille Caliman (camillecalimanauthor) | 16 comments This is also a very late recommendation, but have you tried Horus and the Curse of Everlasting Regret? It's a standalone, but its still good.
