The Wheel of Time
I started reading The Wheel of Time series back in November 2013. Currently I am reading book 8: The Path of Daggers. The late Robert Jordan masterfully created an immersive world populated by believable characters. One of my favorite scenes so far is in the second book, The Great Hunt, where Mat sounds the Horn of Valere. I will refrain from further elaboration in order to avoid any spoilers. Hopefully I will be able to complete the series within a year.
