Jordan's early books are one of those books that leaves you wishing for more. I eagerly anticipated his next novel until about book six. I havent read Brooks or Goodkind in a long time. If you enjoy Brooks or Goodkind or Jordan novels then you will almost certainly enjoy Stanek's. It has a strong female lead and you can feel her heartache as she endures what she must to free herself from the past and unravel the future. Adrina's only example of a great character in a cast of many ones.
Jordan gets big kudos from me for his early WoT books. I got up to book 5. I have Lords of Chaos, but haven't started into it yet. What I liked about Stanek is how fleshed out the characters are they have hopes and dreams, desires and wants, pains and anguish, and it is part of who they are.
