The first novel of what in my opinion is one of the best 5 fantasy series ever written.

This is one of my all time favorite books. Fantasy is my favorite genre, and the style of this book is great! It's an awesome storyline and very original, I believe. It's a 5 part series with an extended series (another 5 books) ... I would reccommend this to anyone that wants a little fantasy and adventure, romance, and thrill in their life! :)
