YA Book Series with Fantastic World-Building That Draw You In

A Listmania! list by Teen Books
The list author says: "I have compiled a list of books and series in teens and young adult literature that uses creative imagination, great description, excellent plotting, and characters who have come alive to draw me into the story. Like the movie Avatar, I can stay in the book's world and never leave. These are books I can't put down for a second, but have to keep reading. Some of these books are pure escapism, while others have deeper meanings. Some are from well-known authors, while others are from newly-emerging YA authors. Among my favorite series authors are: Terry Brooks, Suzanne Collins, Cassandra Clare, Kristin Cashore, Kailin Gow, Tamora Pierce, Stephenie Meyer, Maggie Stiefvater, and Lauren Kate."
