Raymond Feist's books have kept me entertained since my childhood. If you are a fan of fantasy books then you have to check out his work. Here's some info: http://www.crydee.com/
You can easily pick up the first book on Amazon or a local used book store for dirt cheap and I promise, once you start reading the series you won't want to stop until the end. He started this series back in 1982 and the last book in the series just came out not to long ago (if it's out already).
I've read all the way up to the first book in the last series and, as of right now, I'm re-reading the series. Has anyone else read any of his work? You will want to read them in order because some of the character appear throughout the entire series. Some character die of old age but some of the magicians (also one of the main characters) is still alive. This series has action, magic romance and is one of the best read's a sci-fi fantasy fan could ask for.
