They're fantasy, there's at least three of them, and there's magicians and knights and such. One of the main characters names starts with a 'J', he's a knight, very good looking (I remember that being pointed out a lot), and at the beginning of the books he's really arrogant and naive. One of the main bad guys is an old man who works for the evil king, interrogating people, and I remember that he has a badly crippled leg. Also, there's a character who's really hairy and he turns into a bear-like killing machine when in battle.
Does anyone know the author of this series?
Or does anyone know of a community that is specifically for searching for books?
