Prolific reader, age 13, mature. Looking for a really great series for his birthday.

Garth Nix - the Old Kingdom series starting with Sabriel,
David Eddings - Belgariad series
Melinda Salisbury - start with Sin Eater's daughter
Raymond E Feist - Magician, for a really big series.
Robin Hobb has lots of trilogies & most are linked.

They're what I can think off the top of my head.

Mortal Engines - Philip Reeve

Marking place for ideas. My dd is 12 and just started his dark materials. She is severely dyslexic but she loves to read so I am trying to encourage this.

She is mad on Warrior cats series but that would be too young for your d's OP.

What about The Hobbit or Chronicals of narnia?

My daughter has just read Cogheart and Moonlocket which she adored. But will be following for more ideas.

Wind Singer -William Nicholson
Edge Chronicles - Paul Stewart
Shadowmancer - GP Taylor (also uses Christian imagery like HDM)

Another vote for The Wind Singer trilogy by William Nicholson; it's amazing!
