Depends if you want a one-shot or a series.  For a series, try Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth books...and stop at book 4 or so.  Seriously.  if you don't mind straying from sword and sorcery stuff, check out the Alvin maker books from Orson Scott Card.  He also has a good single novel, Enchantment.

I think she's just advertising her book that she wrote.  I'd probably order it, if I had any credits.  ;-) 

Keep writing, Yolanda!

Andrew - I loved the Terry Goodkind series; there were a couple of books interspersed that I wasn't as crazy about as the others, but when I gave the next book a try I found I was just as into the series as I was before.  Did you try going any further, or did you just give up when you read one you didn't like?  It is a long series - I didn't read it all in one shot, but would occasionally read something else inbetween so I didn't get sick of it.
