So. Help me remember the name of a book I read years ago. I probably read this between 1995 and 2005 but it might be a lot older than that. Or not. It was fantasy. It might be classed YA today, but this was way before YA got to be the phenomenon it is now. My memories are fairly vague. the main character was a young man or a boy. For some reason he was wondering around by himself. Then he met another young man/boy who was some kind of beggar or a thief. The other boy was thought to be cursed or something because his eyes were different colours. The boys stuck together and for some reason sought out a female seer (or oracle or witch) and the boy with odd eyes stayed with the woman and bacame her apprentice while the main character continued on his travels. I think there must have been something significant going on with the main character but I can't remember what. I dn't think he saved the world or anything that grand, I remember the book being more low key. But there must have been more plot beyond the friend with the eyes and the seer. I just can't remember. Or perhaps I do remember but am just not connecting this small side-plot with the correct main one. Anyone? Feel free to hijack the thread to voice your own questions about forgotten books.
