A changing of the guard has occurred among works of popular fantasy fiction. The Hunger Games trilogy has replaced the Harry Potter books as the category's top-seller on Amazon.com.

Remarkably, the surge of the Hunger Games consists of just three books, while there are seven in the Harry Potter series.

Big-budget blockbuster movies propelled the popularity of both sets of works.
