In search of a new series to read
Hello! I just finished the 4 "Codex of Alera" books by Jim Butcher and very much enjoyed them, but since the rest of the series isn't published yet, I need something new to read. I absolutely loved "The Sword of Truth" Series by Terry Goodkind and "The Wheel of Time" Series by Robert Jordan (I'm anxiously awaiting the last installment), and I was hoping someone could recommend something similar.
I like books that keep a good pace (lots of action, intrigue and character building), and I am a sucker for the "Ordinary guy/girl becomes a Hero of Legend" plot line. Length is of no importance but I don't want to start another series that isn't fully published yet.
If anyone knows of a single book(s) and/or a series(s) that I might like, please let me know. Thanks!

I haven't yet read it yet, but I heard Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson is excellent. I know Elantris is great. Since you're waiting for the final installment of WoT, you should definitely read something else by Brandon Sanderson since he will be writing it.

I also love the Goodkind and Jordan series, so I would highly recommend the Shannara series, The Symphony of Ages or the Death Gate Cycle (really good).
Also can't go wrong with a classic like Dragonlance Chronicles/Legends.

they are on my kindle and have yet to get to it but apparently
George RR Martin and Steven Erikson's series are also very good. I really want to read them but keep finding something else to read.
