Seek a second opinion. I hate almost all modern fantasy because it's derivative, or tries too hard not to be derivative, or the authors think that stringing together longish names and a few maps is all they need to be do to be Tolkien. I can count the fantasy series written after 1980 that I really enjoy on one hand, I think. After 2000, it drops to two: Pullman and this Kvothe business.

EDIT: uh, the Convenant books, basically they sucked in every possible way. Most people just can't write antiheroes, I kinda wish they'd stop trying.

EDIT 2: if you need something to read, fucking read Worm. It's 2 million words long.

EDIT 3: I'm really pissed off because of baseball right now just ignore me.
