5 Must-Read Fantasy Book Series on Playster


There’s a new digital reading service on the market, and it’s offering more than just books. Playster is an online entertainment service that gives you access to movies, games, music, books and audiobooks for a monthly fee. If you’re not into all of these media types, you can mix and match your subscriptions:

  • Movies – $3.95 per month
  • Games – $4.95 per month
  • Music – $9.95 per month
  • Books & Audiobooks – $9.95 per month
  • All Media – $24.95 per month


Besides offering all kinds of entertainment, Playster.com has another cool feature that’s not available with any other service. When you sign up for a year, you get an Android tablet and headphones package deal, and you can keep it forever, even if you decide to cancel after your year’s membership has ended. It’s a pretty cool service that definitely has the potential to grow into something huge.


Playster’s books collection is definitely the best part of their website. They have a ton of books and audiobooks, and when you look at the price of other similar services, Playster offers by far the best value. Your subscription allows you to read as many books as you want, and unusually, you can listen to as many audiobooks as you like, too, without having to buy credits. It’s a pretty good deal for just $9.95/month!


We’ve picked out some of the top-rated fantasy books you can get on Playster. This is just a small slice of our catalogue, which is growing all the time. Check out these exciting titles below!


A Song of Ice and Fire – George R. R. Martin

You’ve all heard of Game of Thrones… but have you heard it on audiobook? Tony Award-winning actor Roy Dotrice adds great flavor to GRRM’s story, narrating with an infectious enthusiasm that will really draw you into the book’s crazy events. Listening to the entire series is a marathon effort—the first book clocks in at 33 hours alone! Thankfully, it’s so engrossing that you’ll find yourself listening to it a lot more than you thought. This is a totally unique experience and it’s available on Playster now.


The Mortal Instruments – Cassandra Clare

Like A Song of Ice and Fire, Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series is getting the TV treatment: ever hear of a little show called Shadowhunters? Before diving into the show, we definitely recommend checking out Clare’s dark fantasy books about an eternal war between angels and demons, and the other mythological creatures swept up in the conflict. They’re available on Playster in e-book format.


Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard

Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen is a New York Times bestseller for a reason. A story of political intrigue and social ties in a dystopian society literally divided by blood, Red Queen blends character drama with magical powers and intense conflict for a truly gripping story. The good news is that this series is just getting started: a sequel, Glass Sword, is currently sitting on top of the New York Times bestseller list, dethroning Red Queen which is currently at #2. A movie adaptation of the series is currently in the works. If you can’t get enough, you can check out the prequel novella collection, Cruel Crown. Listen to the complete series to-date in audiobook format on Playster!


The Immortals After Dark – Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark books are immensely popular—and there are a lot of them. The paranormal romance series currently sits at 16 titles and counting, the latest being Sweet Ruin. Playster.com has the full collection, which at $9.95 per month is a steal. We’re torn between Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night and Dreams of a Dark Warrior as our favorites so far, but we’re still working our way through the series. If you’re into paranormal romance, definitely check these books out.


The Order of Darkness – Philippa Gregory

The Order of Darkness is a brilliant historical fantasy series written by women’s history expert Philippa Gregory. Set in 1453, the series follows Luca, a young heretic monk tasked with recording the events of Europe’s impending doom. Although the books are by no means historical (we’re looking at you, werewolves), Gregory’s imagining of a magical Europe is very convincing and completely entrancing. Experience the whole trilogy and many of Gregory’s other novels via Playster books today.
