That's a tie between the Pendragon series and the Dragons of Requiem. (multiple trilogies make it up, each at a different part in the timeline therefore making the order they (the trilogies) are read in largely inconsequential)
For anyone who likes a good romance series written in a classy way without too much detail, I suggest checking out Nora Roberts. She is a great author with a crap ton of books out there. Many are trilogies, but she has many single books too. She writes heavily on the metaphysical side of things and many of her characters are shapeshifters. Alot are murder romance too.
First one I ever read is called Carolina Moon, about a woman who has been a medium since she was a child & was severely punished for it. Her best friend is murdered when they are 8 yrs old & she saw it in her mind, but she couldn't see the killer of course. Family moves away & she returns as an adult to face the demons of her past. Falls in love w/ her bestie's brother, against his family's wishes. Helps solve the murder, but NR is fantastic at twisting the story right at the very end. Keeps you hanging on. Her current series has a lycan that shifts for 3 nights every month.
She also writes under the pen, JD Robb, for the In Death series. There's like 30+ already & she releases like 2 more each year. It's about a NYC homicide detective who falls in love with a gazillionaire and they solve all these crazy murders. There's friendship, love, sex, romance, alot of laughs. And it's all set about 50 years in the future. So think The Jetsons (if you are old enough to remember them) meets CSI (not to mention a sore subject). It's really worth the read if yure into that kinda thing.
Maaaaan, Animorphs. Loved that series.
James Rollins writes great books. Haven't read a single one he wrote that wasnt good.
Definitely the Last Dogs for me. It's an adolescents-targetted book series about a dog who tries to find the humans after they disappear, alongside two others. The premise sounds childish but it tends to get very dark, involving some dogs being driven to insanity by hunger, the fact that wolves are constantly trying to kill them. Yikes, a cat was even brutally killed when it tried to defend the main character o.o
Actually, I haven't read past book one yet but I've been trying to get my hands on the other ones; it's just really good!
Marseguro, a backwater water world where humans and selkies - humans genetically engineered for aquatic adaptation - live side by side in peace, has its 70-year long seclusion shattered by an invasion sent by the very tyrannical regime they fled from on Earth. Though peace-loving, the inhabitants had been left with the legacy of their creator's work, including a weapon so terrible that doubts arise as to who is the greater threat to whom.
