    3 days? Damn son, lol. Those are some thick books. And the only reason I can't rank them higher than sword and NA is cause I don't know how it ends. Rothfuss likes to take his time too.
    Once series is finished then I will TRY to compare to the others. All in all 3 of the best series I've ever read

    from NightAngels and Rose's posts I picked up and started reading Legend by David Gemmell, part 1 of the Drenai series. Havent gotten a lot of reading time yet but I'm about two thirds in on the first book and its been a pretty good read so far.

    Trying to wait for the whole series to come out before I start it. What number is that one?
    I waited for Legacy AND Yuhzman Zong(can't remember name of series) to be released before I ever started them(not to mention swarm war trilogy which was good in its own way).

    It keeps getting better and better. I disagreed with some of his writing style but the stories were off the chain

    Finished Legend, about halfway done with book two. Gemmel's writing style is nowhere near Rothfuss, Weeks, or even Goodkind. I dont know how to quite pin it down but he seems a lot more basic where as the previously mentioned authors seem to be able to weave a story together much better. Not trying to dissuade anyone from reading him, from what I've read so far his books have been great to read.

    Good explanation... and your right, i cant quite pin it down either and i read the entire denai series (12 i think)

    It was nothing like the other authors i've read for sure but an excellent story in its own right. wasn't happy with the continuity of the books at times. you will see what i mean though.

    they still get my official seal of approval:D

    Has anyone picked up Steven Ericksons book series about the Malazan? I have it but havent started reading any of it yet and was just wondering. Currently I have just finished reading book 2 of the Drenai series by Gemmel, going to hold off on book 3 for now to finish the Frankenstein series (books 4 & 5) by Dean Koontz.
