I'm bouncing between The Wheel of Time series, I just started the first book, and finishing The Girl Who Played with Fire.
I can't seem to get into the WoT, I really want to, I need another series since I finished The Dark Tower, but I'm just having trouble.
Btw. Anyone who has read Wot, is it one continuous story? Or is it several books based around the same people and each is a new conflict/story?
WoT is a good story gone bad- the author involves way WAY too many plotlines that as of yet have gone nowhere. The core story is actually very good but you have to sift through so many other things it gets distracting. It's good enough to read but just be warned.
I'd suggest for a new series The Malazan book of the Fallen by Steven Erickson- utterly fantastic with an amazingly deep and multi-layered story. Plus as a bonus the series is fully written so you can get to the end.
Other than that- READ A song of Fire and Ice by GRR Martin- starting with a Game of Thrones- it's not finished but it is amazing series.
