Beauty and The Beast

Hated and feared, magic was banished from the land. But now, freed from the spells of the wicked bloodmages, magic-both good and evil-returns. And Aren of Fallbrook feels her own power of sight strengthen and grow…

Overcome by visions of mayhem and murder, Aren vows to save her village from the ruthless raiders who have descended upon it-and killed her family. With the return of wildlings to the hills and forests, she strikes a bargain with the Hob, a magical, human-like creature imbued with the power of the mountains. But the Hob is the last of his kind. And he will exact a heavy price to defend the village-a price Aren herself must pay…

Rachel Foerstner, August 10, 2010 (view all comments by Rachel Foerstner)
This has become one of my favorite books. It has everything an epic fantasy should have: magic, ignorance, love, hate, fey, old gods, and a world in peril. Patricia Briggs does an excellent job of giving her protagonist a voice that is strong, yet relatable. The Hob's Bargain is on the top of my "comfort food reading list".
