Just read The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie and have now started The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss which is the first book in the Kingkiller Chronicle. Anyone into fantasy or waiting for the next George RR Martin book would enjoy Abercrombie's series - its an interesting take on the genre, dark, with very flawed characters making it challenging to distinguish the 'good' from the 'bad' characters - much like Martin's series. I'm only about half way through The Name of the Wind so I can't say much about it other than so far so good.
