Rogues -

The Lightning Tree by Patrick Rothfuss

 

The story follows mysterious errand boy from the Waystone Inn, Bast, throughout an entire day as he has dealings with many children from the area surrounding the town of Newarre.  Bast offers answers to questions and problems that the children have in return for information or favors as well as trading information for information, but most of his time is helping a young boy named Rike get rid of his abusive father from his home.  Yet while the children think they are dealing with an teenager, the reader is quick to realize that Bast is something other than human and more than just a teenager.  Bast's roguishness is hard to miss and the story is very good making this a great penultimate story for the overall volume.
