True, there are several books I love with some uprising or some battle. But, what if this time I only mention just one genre? Fantasy is a genre we expect it in, particularly those with some kind of quest it in it or a story of good vs evil. So, what are some of those fantasy books?
Well, this is one of those “good vs evil” series. As well as a lot of challenges and trails- particularly for our main trio. Whenever something tends to happen at Hogwarts, our Golden Trio usually is involved. Harry’s best friends are Ron and Hermione (so these three make up the main trio). You truly see a quest unfold in the final book- hunting for those Horcruxes (the key to destroying Voldermort), and its where the actual Battle happens.
The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings
Yes, this series and HP share a number of things in common. But they still are so different from each other. The Hobbit in many ways is a prequel to Lord of the Rings. Both are quests and both have a hobbit as our protagonist. Plus, a different kind of quest- as in one is a quest to reclaim the dwarves homeland, and one is quest to destroy the One Ring.
Battle of the Five Armies- this is part of The Hobbit
Battle of Helm’s Deep- this is part of The Two Towers (the 2nd Lord of the Rings)
The Major Battle- part of The Return of the King (the 3rd of the Rings); this is the biggest battle in ALL of Lord of the Rings. Sauron’s army is full of several orcs (the only problem is fight terribly) and the kind of weapons they have is terrifying. At least the good guys are full of hope, and some can fight well (as in our major characters), but outnumbered- at least Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas were able to recruit new members.
Chronicles of Narnia
Why do I feel like in MOST fantasy battles that the good guys are way outnumbered?? Happened in Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Narnia—-but eventually got extra help.
