Top Ten Underrated Books and Series in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres

Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly feature over at The Broke and The Bookish

1. Matt Cruse trilogy by Kenneth Oppel- This is a great adventure series that does steampunk very well. It now has gorgeous new covers. Seriously. These are super lovely and they match, and I completely adore these covers.

2. The Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer: I still sing the praises of this series from the rooftops. It's kind of a sci-fantasy (tech-fantasy?) with fairies and criminal masterminds.

3. Dragonfly by Julia Golding: It's kind of an adventure-fantasy.

4. The Leviathan Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld: Another steampunk that incorporates the steampunk aspect fantastically. It's great when steampunk is really an intrinsic part of the story and not just something used as a selling point. It also comes with illustrations.

5. Dark Life and Riptide by Kat Falls: These are climate fiction set in a world where the sea has risen, and there are now colonies on the sea floor. It's a fast paced adventure.

6. Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst: A stand-alone fantasy set in the desert.

Since I mentioned more than ten books, I think that's probably good (probably?). I can't come up with anything else off the top of my head.
