I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe.You may have heard of me.

A great story, the adult version of Harry Potter. The struggle of a small boy to survive in a harsh world and eventual coming in to his power.

The second book is fantastic as well

Elantris was built on magic, and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade, and Elantris began to rot. Now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots? Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

What disappointed you about Elantris?

I'm normally a big fan of Brandon Sanderson however this story was too long and not that intriguing. There was not enough magic or action during the story. Everything was left to the ending which was somewhat predictable. I like the princess's character but the other characters were average. Also I was not impressed by the narrators voice although it did grow on me by the end of the book.

Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

Well thought out story, plenty of action. Earth becomes involved in war with two different Alien forces.
