The Painted Man - Peter V. Brett

well that was depressing. He's obviously going to run into Leesha, though i do hope they dont get together - it's the perfect set up. She's beautiful, smart, brave and has the knowledge to help him. He's also kind, intelligent and courageous, and they would make an awesome team but what about Mery?
