I was reading through the other thread with recommendations on the best fantasy books, but I figured that some people may be put off by the shear size of some of those series'. This would be a good chance to offer smaller single books or trilogies etc... for consideration. These should have a definite beginning and conclusion to them.
My 2 recommendations in this area are:
Brandon Sanderson: Mistborn Trilogy
C.S. Freidman: Coldfire Trilogy
What do you think would be some good stuff for beginners to work their way up to the massive collections we all know and love?

Robin Hobbs has three trilogies that are very good The Farseer trilogy that consists of Apprentice Assassin, Royal Assassin, and Assassin Quest. Then there is her Liveship Trader's trilogy consisting of Ship Of Magic, Mad Ship and Ship Of Destiny and her Solider's Son Trilogy that consists of Shaman's Crossing, Forest Mage, and Renegade's Magic.
