Greatest New Adult Fantasy Books/Series Since 2005

What do you believe are the greatest upcoming books from an adult fantasy series. I'm not talking about YA like Harry Potter or Inheritance, or old fantasy series like the Lord of Rings, Wheel of Time, Malazan, or even A Song of Ice and Fire but New Adult Fantasy.

Cheryl Hager I'm confused, the blurb at the top mentioned what this list wasn't looking for, but most of those books made the list anyway. Don't get me wrong, I have read most of those titles/series mentioned in the blurb. I was looking for something new to read too. But to clarify, is this a list for "New Adult" Fantasy or "New" Adult Fantasy??? :)

Erica Wagner I'm a bit confused. I'd simply call most of the books on this list fantasy novels. When I've purchased the ones I've read on this list, they were in the fantasy section of B and N (or Amazon), not the NA section. What makes them NA specifically? Sorry, but I'm still trying to get my head around what differentiates NA fantasy from traditional fantasy (which often has characters in their twenties).

Yousef Al-Abed Why do you consider malazan an old series ?
