Re: What are you reading? / What did you read last?
The Dresden Files books were great. I really liked the balance between the Magic and the Detective in the early books, then it moved more to the magic.
The Mistborn series is one of my favorites. The Alloy of Law is more like a stand alone in the same world. Brandon Sanderson also has Elantris and Warbreaker. Two stand alone books that were really well done. You can get Warbreaker for fee on his website.
