    Hi everyone

    I am looking for a new fantasy book series to read. The books I really liked are (as a kid) Eragon, more recently the Lightbringer series.
    What I look foreward in a book is.
    • Characters which have a interesting and funny personality and make you want to read more about them... (Kip from the Lighbringer series is a good example in my opinion).
    • Magical World which makes you wish it would really exist (like in Eragon - I love dragons!) ;-)
      And I prefer medieval settings.
    • Magic system which is quite restricted (not like Lord of the Rings) but still maintains it's mysticality. This can be achieved for example by combining different rules in a new/unexpected way...
    • And of corse: a writer who loves to play with language... I love when I hear a description of something which makes me laugh but still fits the thing perfectly.

    I found a lot of positive reviews about the following series. Which one do you think I should pick up next?
    1. The Death Gate Cycle
    2. Mistborn
    3. The Kingkiller Chronicles
    4. The Stormlight Archive
    5. Malazan Book of the Fallen

    Let me know which one you think fits me most - and why! Thanks :)
