Way of Kings by Sanderson was quite good. I've read it twice now since it was released and it has inspired me to re-read the WoT series just so I can get to the Sanderson books...god help me.
Bumping this as I've just read the Rothfuss books, which I completely enjoyed. They weren't terribly original, but very engaging, they really hit the spot for escapist fun light reading. I am eagerly awaiting the next one, hope it isn't too many years
Also I've started Tim Powers 'On Stranger Tides' which is pretty good, I'll be moving on to more of his books when I finish.
