SusF, I enjoyed the necromancer series quite a bit. I have all 4 books and of waiting for the next installments to come out. The series is going to be called "The fallen kings cycle". I believe this is because she went with a new publishing house if I'm not mistaken.

The Lies Of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch
The Steel Remains - Richard Morgan
Revelation Space - Alastair Reynolds
Hyperion - Dan Simmons
Okay, I realise the bottom two are science fiction, but it hardly seemed worth posting again in the equivalent Sci-Fi thread...
Picked up the first three Codex Alera books.
Oh! I love these threads!

After you've read them, fill me in on what you think. I've read some of the posts around here on Watt-Evans, but still teeter upon the fence. Wondering if he is worth the buy/read.
Well I recently read The Misenchanted Sword, the first book set in his Ethshar world. Nothing earth shattering but a fun quick story of a random guy stuck with a magical sword. It makes for a neat diversion between heavier grittier books. There are some YA undertones (if that's not your fare). From what I gathered, all the volumes in this series feature a different hero faced with a unique problem and are all self-contained. So you can give the first one a try without fear of setting foot into an endless stream of sequels.
Can't speak for his trilogies yet (Annals of the Chosen, Obsidian Chronicles...) but I'm stockpiling them anyway
