If you like the sent-off-to-Boarding-School-to-be-tormen
I realize that in order to have a young character get out and about to see the world you pretty much have to off their parents and have them ostracized by everyone around them and sent somewhere else where they Are Not Loved. And to make it a Tale Worth Telling, you then have to make them some kind of messianic figure. But while I recognize the requirements of the genre, I still find them unbelievably annoying. You probably should know that other people like this book/series/author a lot. You should also know that it's projected to be a 6 book series, the last of which is not yet out, and only the first three of which appear to be readily available in the US.
