100 Cupboards series by N.D. Wilson 

    (Prequel) The Door Before 

  1. 100 Cupboard 

  1. Dandelion Fire 

  1. The Chestnut King 

Reads a little like the Chronicles of Narnia, if C.S. Lewis had been an American. Essentially [written as] a children's book, but likely to be enjoyed by adults as well.

Fantasies4 

The Keepers' Trilogy by Lian Tanner 

  1. Museum of Thieves

A museum that lives, breathes, and changes shape…. a spunky 12-year old who breaks away from constraints with lifechanging results....and a society that believes "bad things" must be avoided.  Dystopian tale challenges parents to consider the societal impact of overprotecting their children.  Written for the juvenile audience, but enjoyable for adults too.
