The Lord of the Rings? If you count that as a trilogy.

Can't think of any other that exist.

You mean any trilogies?
There are far too many for me to name all my favourites :o

If there’s more than three books in the Same world/setting it doesn’t count.

Robin Hobb wouldn’t count

First Law wouldn’t count

Divine Cities Trilogy - Robert Jackson Bennett
Book of the Ancestor - Mark Lawrence (assuming we don't count novellas)


I've read good reviews about Magicians (Lev Grossman) but haven't read it yet.

Divine Cities Trilogy - Robert Jackson Bennett

My next read along with @Eclipse :)

I've read good reviews about Magicians (Lev Grossman) but haven't read it yet.

Started with high hopes, ended with total disappointment :(

If we could expand this to quadrilogies then, Bartimaeus (Jonathan Stroud) and Faithful and Fallen (John Gwynne) may qualify too.

Joe Abercrombie's Shattered Sea
David Gemmel's Jon Shannow
Jon Hollin's Dragon Lords
Gav Thorpe's Empire of the Blood

Most of my favourite series have more than three books. The length is why i like them.  :-[

Speaking of trilogies, Tad Williams' Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn are on my TBR list.  Anyone here read them, and if so how did you like them?  I've heard good things.
