First of all, thank you for the replies.
I've actually read everything by Brandon Sanderson. ;D. He was one of the only authors I made time for during study. Elantris and the Mistborn Trilogy had me hooked beyond anything else.
Right, I'll say right now that when I was younger, I read the entirety of the Wheel of Time, as much as was out in the early 2000's.
First of all, it's an epic of incredible proportions.
I got lost in that series when I was younger, when I was able to stand winded, baggy description.
Not so much now. I can still stand reading it, but my tolerance for an epic being overly descriptive is thin.

So, from this thread:

I'll be buying the Black Company, Erikson's first two books of the Malazan, and I dunno. That should keep me busy.

P.S Patrick Rothfuss is God, or a close Avatar of one. The Name of the Wind was one of the only novels I read this year and I am so glad I did. Kvothe is amazin'

Military, The Epic or Urban. Let's go from there.

Hi, folks! :)

As my first post on the boards, I didn't want to anchor myself into the figureheads discussions over in the Gaming sections, and get into an argument over whether trolling has a place in modern gaming, whether anyone gives a damn about Falco, or the latest Geralt's banging. -.- 

So, I decided, as an avid reader, if anyone could suggest some good readin' in fantasy that's come out recently. I've been quite lacklustre in this department over the year due to studying and want to get back onto the "bandwagon, so to speak.

So, suggest some titles, and help a fellow fan out!

Much appreciated.
