"The Mistborn" trilogy by Brandon Sanderson is a recent favorite of mine. I was first introduced to Sanderson when he was chosen to finish the WoT series. "The Mistborn" series has the most interesting and unique form of magic I have seen in a long time. It is based on the consumption and "burning" of metals and alloys. It is a good break from the traditional wave-your-hand-and-speak-words forms of magic common in fantasy novels. It also contains a number of new and unique types of creatures.
