Series: Penric & Desdemona #1
I stumbled across this while looking for more audiobooks at the library because none of my audio holds were available. It was short so I figured I'd give it a shot.
It turned out to be a cute novella about how a nineteen year old boy on his way to his betrothal lands himself a demon and thus becomes a sorcerer (which leads the girl in question to break things off). Now, Penric was a bit of nitwit at times but he managed to not be too annoying, so I enjoyed my introduction to his story, and I think I'll continue with it because my library has the others. Desdemona is the name he gives his demon, which is apparently an odd thing to do.
Penric is rather young but he knows awfully little about how his world functions because he's basically clueless about demons. I'm not sure whether that was just because he was young, lived in a bit of a backwater, or what. I guess I'll see if the other books elaborate at all.
