Not long ago the library purchased Brent Weeks' The Night Angel Trilogy.
It seemed to be a pretty straight forward Apprentice / Assassin story
when the characters suddenly had a depth of character not always found in Fantasy SF.
For crying out loud the people weren't black and white; right and wrong; good and bad.
Yikes! Too real! Too human!
I loved every minute of every book in the trilogy.
