My daughter recently polished off the final Harry Potter book, and I'm looking for something else she might like, preferably a series that will keep her busy for a while. She's a fast and voracious reader and tends to read most books in a day or two. The Harry Potter series was the only one she actually took some time with.

What would you recommend for a gifted nine-year-old who adored Harry Potter?

Percy Jackson and the Olympians Paperback Boxed Set (Books 1-3)

This series was really good, it talks about kids that are the Children of Olympus. She may enjoy it.

Hope this helps

C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. Full of magic and wonder. She might also like A Wrinkle in Time. And of course, there's always The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series, although she may need to be a little older for that. (Not for The Hobbit, that's great for a nine-year-old!)

Thanks. She's read A Wrinkle in Time and liked it but wasn't interested in reading any more of the series. Maybe I'll suggest The Hobbit. I remember not making it past the first chapter or so when I was a kid, but she's not me. :D

How about trying The Pyn King, a timeless tale of kings, queens, despots and cannibalistic child assassins? For those unsure (and in the uncertain world of self publication who can blame them?) on immediately shelling out for the physical book, you can download a complete digital copy from for free.
