I'm a big fan of the Kingkiller Chronicle books by Patrick Rothfuss.
They're written in a fantastic manner and are among my favorite books I've read. The story, the inspiration and the dark fantasy settings belong right along the classics in literature. Kvothe and Bast are a great duo.
Every couple of days I keep wondering when the next book is going to be released. This has been going on for well over a year at the very least. There are always rumors going around, especially on the kingkiller chronicle subreddit, which I can't help but peek at every once in a while.
If you've not read these books and are even remotely interested in fantasy, give these a shot!
