The Siege of Macindaw - John Flanagan More super-fun candy-fiction.

The books in this series keep me hooked. hack-and-slash fantasy, light on magic, heavy on swordplay and witty banter, and 100% fun.

This one was particularly enjoyable-- it should be Sorcerer of the North, part 2, as they don't stand alone well as individual novels, but as a two-parter, they're really fun.
