I just ordered a whole lot of books from amazon, and I was just wondering if anyone had read them and what they thought about them. The books are: Magic Bites by Kate Daniels and the next one in the series Magic Burns, The Host by Stephenie Meyer, Anything Goes by John Barrowman and his sister, The Phoenix by Ruth Sims and Without Reservations by J. L. Langley.

Are there any good fantasy or vampire books that you could suggest that I could read?

Anyone else reading G.W. Dahlquist's GLASS BOOKS series?

Because I'm the only person I know reading this huge, picaresque, polymorphously perverse series... and I want company :)

Any ideas on an appropriate fantasy novel to give a 16 year old boy?

Anyone have any brilliant notions on an appropriate (possibly YA) fantasy-type book to give a boy turning 17? His reading skills are quite advanced. As I understand it, his reading abilities are easily equivalent to most adults, although the book's contents should not be too graphically sexual.

He has enjoyed the Harry Potter books, as well as Lord of the Rings. He loves David Gemmel's novels, but has read them all. Likewise with Raymond E. Feist books (including the Empire series written by Feist and Janny Wurts.)

EDIT: I bought the two books today - Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, and Sabriel by Garth Nix.
Thanks to all who gave their suggestions.
