Ther's a lot of great fantasy been mentioned. For something a bit different you could try Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke or Little Big by John Crowley.

I just finished Wintersong by William Cooper a historical fantasy good characters and plot and not too much dependence on mindless action for the sake of it and plot holes filled by weird stuff. I enjoyed it

Don't know if these have already been mentioned, but, the wheel of time series is excellent:
The Eye Of The World: Wheel of Time: Book 1 (The Wheel of Time)
So is Garth Nix's Abhorsen/Wall trilogy:
Finally, a new fantasy series I finished the first book of the other day which I thoroughly enjoyed and can't recommend enough, Andor: Awakening (the author seems relatively unknown, but the other reviews as well as mine speak for themselves):
Andor: Awakening (The Shae Series)

All of these are very gritty and don't have any of this silly nonsense in the vampire books out today. Hope this helps!

You could always try China Mieville- He has written three novels centered around a city called New Croubozon.They are a mixture of fantasy and science fiction. I was blown away when I read them. Also try Mark Chadbourne-British myths and Legends come to life and destroy modern society- Absolutely brilliant- nine books in all. Three sets of a trilogy that are all interconnected.
Also a bit of shameless self promotion- my first novel 'Vagabond Swords' This is about a uneasy alliance between orcs and elves who are thrown together. For once the orcs are not the bad guys. These characters are ordinary grunts forced to take part in a war they are not interested in. All they want to do is stay alive. It might be a bit sweary for some tastes but that's the way the military speak. I was in it myself a long time ago.It is for sale on Kindle. Might be worth a punt
