19:56 - Zaphod Clint, Oh, I'd definitely recommend it if you liked the Way Of Kings. It's a lot more fast-paced though. Fearmeister, I've had the first Song of Ice and Fire book for about five years now, and I still haven't read it :P
19:54 - Fearmeister The Game of Thrones books are also really great
19:52 - Clint W. Yeah, I've only read The Way of Kings by Brandson Sanderson, but I'd like to read Mistborn.
19:50 - Zaphod I'm also delving deeper into modern fantasy series since there seem to be a lot of fresh ideas out there. They're not always executed well, but there's definitely a lot of authors at least trying some new stuff.
19:47 - Clint W. That's what I've heard. The first three books all kind of have the same plot structure. I'm really trying to invest myself in the world and characters and it's getting better, but nothing has really wowed me yet but we'll see.
19:39 - Fearmeister I never finished the Wheel of Time. The whole series dragged on from the 5th book onward and I stopped out of sheer boredom.
