My bad, just saw this. If you're interested in the epic, long, ton of books type of fantasy, I would check out...
1) A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin (Obvious, and I'm sure you've already read it)
2) Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson (Have a lot more respect for him as a writer now that I've gotten further in the series. He handles a lot of characters very well.)
3) The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson (Only 1 book out so far, but it's a doorstop at 1100 pages, and the next one should be out next year)
For slightly less epic reads, I'd go for:
1) The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss (Really awesome. Two books out, supposed to be a trilogy, but I have no idea how he's going to finish it off with one book.)
2) The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks (Put off reading these for a long time because the covers make them look so fucking stupid, but I'm glad I finally did.)
2a) The Lightbringer Series by Brent Weeks (Haven't read any of it yet, but based on the strength of his Night Angel series, it's probably pretty good.)
3) Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson (He's a good writer, not quite on the level of some of the other guys here imo, but Mistborn is just a really cool series, and only 3 books.)
