sci-fi books?

please recommend a sci-fi/fantasy book I should read? preferably a good page-turner, I've been a bad reader lately so I can't jump into something boring that'll turn me off again.

Also, I haven't read much, so don't assume I've read the classics that everyone else has read. I've read Hitch Hiker's Guide, all the Tolkien I could be interested in, and some david eddings.

Extra points if the female characters aren't just powerless love interests.

More extra points if it's been written in the last ten years or so.
