The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett
What an awesome fantasy! I could give you a list of my high school students who would absolutely love this adult fantasy novel by newcomer Peter V. Brett. The book is the first in a series, and I can't wait for the second one.
A beautiful, patient and stubborn healer, a saddened jester, and a brave fighter combine forces to save a small town from the Corelings, the demons that haunt everyone nightly. This book has everything a good fantasy should have, but it so readable and NEW to someone like me who's read tons of fantasy. It's 416 pages of goodness! It's the best book I've read since The Name of the Wind!
