The success of this series helped to increase the visibility and popularity of the fantasy genre among young adults, leading to a greater interest in fantasy literature among this demographic.

Penguin has also been successful in publishing young adult fantasy authors who later become successful, such as "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, which was published by Penguin's imprint Scholastic. This dystopian series, set in a post-apocalyptic future, was a commercial and critical success and has been adapted into a successful film franchise.

Penguin also published debut young adult fantasy authors such as "Graceling" by Kristin Cashore, which was published by Penguin's imprint Firebird. The book was well-received by critics and has a devoted fanbase, it was praised for its originality, and its strong and complex female characters.

In addition, Penguin has also been successful in publishing diverse young adult fantasy authors, such as "The Shadowshaper Cypher" by Daniel José Older, which was published by Penguin's imprint DAW.
