I will like some recommendations of epic fantasy trilogy.
I want 3 book series.
I want some villager farm boy to hero story.
I want clear good versus evil story.
The bad guys must be clearly bad and the good guys good.
Something like lord of the rings.
1. Darkwalker on Moonshae by Douglass Niles
2. Black Wizard by Douglass Niles
3. Darkwell by Douglass Niles
You don't get much more like Lord of the Rings than...
"The Sword of Shannara Trilogy consists of the first three Shannara novels (The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara and The Wishsong of Shannara) by Terry Brooks. Though not originally written as a trilogy, the novels were published as The Sword of Shannara Trilogy by Del Rey Books."

From the Sword of Shannara wiki page
"Critics have derided the novel for being derivative of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Some have accused Brooks of lifting the entire plot and many of his characters directly from The Lord of the Rings; others have praised its execution despite the lack of originality"
Dear Chong,

on Jan 7th you started a thread, which had multiple replies, with this question:

I like fantasy like wheel of time and lord of the rings, where some obscure village boy end up saving the day.
Kindly recommend me such similar series.
I appreciate that you have refined your question a little bit, but it would be helpful if you can feed back your thoughts from earlier this year.
