Gonna disagree with you on Joe Abercombe. The Blade Itself trilogy was horrible. The Soprano's ending was completely pointless.
a) had no freakin' idea how to end his story, and
b) had Mommy Issues
I think he lost control of the story, but definitely was getting it back. Sanderson get's credit (rightfully so) for the phenomenal dragon-mount scene, but Jordan definitely laid the foundation for the story to get pulled back together.
I just read the first chapters of the new Mistborn book. Fantasy meets Western and steampunk. I love it.
