If you are looking for some great young adult series, here are some that I've really enjoyed, but aren't very famous--yet.
The Dreamhouse Kings series, by Robert Liparulo. Awesome, action-packed adventure mystery series. The old house the Kings just moved into has secrets. And it will do whatever it can to keep it that way. Each book ends with a cliff-hanger, so watch out. 6 books in all.
Guardians of Time, by Marianne Curley. 3 books. A single town that contains an eternal war for the history of the world. A group of kids are the only ones who can stop the forces of Chaos from changing the past...and therefore save the future.
The Wind on Fire, by William Nicholson. 3 books. Adventure series that takes place in a different world. The first one is great, but the other two weren't as good.
Midnighters, by Scott Westerfeld. Another action adventure mystery set in a small town. 3 books. A clever concept: what if there was an extra hour in the day that only a few people knew about? Everyone else freezes except for these people. And, once again, they have to save the world from evil forces.
Dominion Trilogy, by Robin Parrish. 3 books. A man wakes up to discover he isn't himself anymore. He finds he has become part of an elite group that has special powers. But nothing is as it seems. (And I mean nothing!) Awesome trilogy.
The Alchemist was good, but I haven't read the others.
Michael Carroll has a series Quantum Prophecy. The first one is The Awakening. Really, really good, but my library doesn't have the rest. I'm not sure how many there are. It's another superhero-type story, except this one involves children.
Michael Grant's book Gone was also a good read. Very interesting concept. The second book in the series, Hunger, just came out recently, but I haven't picked it up, yet.
Michael Grant's GONE series is *amazing*. HUNGER, the second book, is only better. And there will be a third book, LIES, coming out hopefully within a year. All in all it's going to be a six-book series. I'm so excited.
