I would recommend Brandon Sanderson's books. I enjoyed the Mistborn Trilogy a lot. (there's another book in the series and another coming). I also liked the Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. I also like his new Lightbringer book series as well. Weeks is a bit more graphic, curses and is a bit more gritty than others.
I like the Wheel of Time, and I've read it, but for many, it's plodding and very lost. If you want, read the first, it's the best in a lot of respects, and then decide if you want to give the time commitment. Sanderson's doing the last books in the Wheel of Time, so it's a lot better now, but it's tough.
I also like the Kingkiller and First Blade series by two different authors.
Must also say, I really enjoyed the Throne of the Crescent Moon. It's a Middle Eastern style Fantasy book. Lot of different ideas there. It's something new with less standard stuff.
