So yeah, lots of time on an airplane for me to read.

Appreciate the suggestions from everyone.

I've read all of Sanderson's and Abercrombie's stuff and am a huge fan. I've also read the Kingkiller Chronicle, and liked that as well.

I like the Weeks recommendation, and may have to add that to the list.

WRT Wheel of Time, how does it compare to the Malazan Book of the Fallen in terms of plodding/slow/over-wrought scope? That's really the only fantasy series I've picked up that I disliked (sorry usiel).
First two books of wheel of time series are the best, imho, before the books after which felt like they would have a good place as a series on the Lifetime channel.

First four books of the Malazan series I thought were good but man it jumped the shark after.

Name of the Wind?
