Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
This is a fabulous YA fantasy! Fifteen year old Neryn has been on the run with her father for several years and when he gambles her away to a man named Flint, she is sure that worse things will follow. As it happens, Flint is kind to her and their paths continue to cross one anothers as she heads north to Shadowfell, where she has heard there are other people who are in rebellion against the cruel king who has banned all contact with the Good Folk and all those with Canny gifts. Neryn has always been able to see the Good Folk and believes that is why the kings men are after her. As she heads towards Shadowfell, she must survive and prove that she has the virtues necessary to be trained as a Caller. With magic, adventure and romance, this is an excellent story and I look forward to reading the other books in the trilogy!
