Mairelon the Magician  - Patricia C. Wrede This book is one of my main comfort reads. The writing is a little rough in patches (you can tell this is one of Wrede's earlier books), but Kim's voice is so fantastic that it lives in my head for days after I finish reading it, and Mairelon's character is adorably exasperating. They're one of my favorite fantasy duos, and I wish Wrede had written more than just two books for them! Full of vivid characters and, in Kim's words, "better than a Drury Lane comedy" for sheer farcical absurdity, this book is perfect for anyone looking for a quick, lighthearted fantasy read.
