It has been decades since I read Thomas Covenant. I remember it being about a leper who had godlike powers because his wedding ring was made of white gold, but that's about it. I recall liking it better once the guy got over his constant pity party. I only read the first set of books.

I'm re-reading Trudi Canavan's series The Black Magician trilogy. It revolves around a former thief who is forced into becoming a mage or her magic will kill her. The first book is about becoming a mage, the second book is about her attending classes, where everyone hates her because she's common, and the third book is basically a romance novel. It's definitely average and takes no chances with originality.
