The Hawk And His Boy is the first book in the Tormay Trilogy. Once again, a 99 cent book that's excellent.
Jute is a young thief. He's tasked with helping to steal a box that can't be opened. His life changes forever when the box opens for him. Jute is only one player in this story of a land filled with magic, where the darkness is beginning to creep back across the borders. Very highly recommended.
