30 Day Book Playlist Challenge, Day 17: Folk

Mistborn: The Final Empire - Brandon Sanderson The Well of Ascension - Brandon Sanderson The Hero of Ages - Brandon Sanderson

Day 17: Name a book you've read with a hero/heroine who is either poor or from a lower background in status/society.  May be someone who remains in that class or aspires to greater living. (Folk)

Vin and Kelsier and pretty much everyone in the Mistborn trilogy fits this bill. What I really love about this series is how Sanderson mixes the classical fantasy tropes with an examination of the differences between the rich and the poor, especially in the first book. (I also love it for other reasons, too.) Sanderson's books are all just so refreshingly practical.
