Sanderson, Brandon -- The Way of Kings [e-book purchase]

The start of another fat-book series, in the traditional form: a prologue from ancient legendary history followed by a thousand pages of fantasy-world politics and extremely detailed magical theory. Sanderson tackles a multiple-POV story this time around, with an exiled ninja, an enslaved war hero, and an impoverished noblewoman. Meanwhile, giant storms are trying to scour the world clean of life -- that is, they've always done that, but they might be getting worse. I suspect that the author is deliberately taking a GRRM tack, and he's no GRRM, but he's still Sanderson and capable of whacking out a good readable story for as long as you're willing to read it. Which I guess will be another nine thousand pages.
