I dont think the hobbit counts as it was written before Lord of the Rings but as a film it will count cos it is being filmed afterwards.

I would have to go for The Steel Throne by Edward Bolme - the prequel to a fabulous Japanese-inspired series called The Four Winds Saga.

Read it!

The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud.

Overall through I’m not keen on Prequels as you already know how the character’s  journeys end up, unless I really really like the characters and just want more.

I can't remember reading any prequels except the Riyria Chronicles (of which I've only read 2 books of the 3 - the third wasn't published in the UK).
I really enjoyed them!
