    book about a wizard? who plays a lyre? and eventually becomes an inkeeper

    Hi, I'm trying to think of a science fiction/fantasy book I read and was hoping that someone could maybe help me. It's about a boy whose family gets killed by something. He ends up on the streets and eventually goes to some sort of wizardy school. He is really good at playing an instrument and finally gets kicked out of the university. He is telling the story in the future as an inkeeper and there are some sort of beasts attacking people in the town. I know this is really vague-but I'd appreciate any help!

    It's a recent series-my friend loaned me the book and said more were coming out. I have no way of contacting him though or I'd ask!

    Sounds like The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss.

    Agreeing with Teresa on this one. Its a very well-known book and discussed at great length here at SFFWorld (i.e. one of those you either like it or you really don't kind of books).
