    As a new Fantasy writer myself I wanted to read some Fantasy book that have been recent say the last ten maybe 20 years.

    What books are the best in this Genre to read. (I don't mind older ones but I wanted to try and read the most recent to see how things are done now).

    Thanks guys

    Rothfuss- name of the wind

    The Wheel of time by Robert Jordan
    Mistborn Triology by Brandon Sanderson

    But like Brian said Name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss is a must.

    Some people may knock them but I think the Dark Elf series of books by R.A. Salvatore are pretty great. Also the Sovereign Stone trilogy by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman are very good.
