I haven't spotted the War God series by David Weber and the Half-Orcs by David Dalglish. Both are 'boy from the farm' types as long as you are OK with your boy being an orc or orc-like.
I have the feeling the OP may have mentioned these two in other threads. DRM free and IIRC the first of the series in each is a freebie.

Another recommendation is Janny Wurtz's Wars of Light and Shadow series.

I second the War God series and the first three books are on Baen's Wind Rider CD.
I also recommend the Vineart War series by Laura Anne Gilman and the Joust series by Mercedes Lackey

In the more gritty dub-category I really like Glen Cook's Black Company books. Abercrombie and Steven Burst are also two of my favorites.

HarryT you might like the Kyralia trilogies by Trudi Canavan. (the 1st book is currently reported heavily discounted for Kindle in the Deals subforum)
What also fits the monomyth pattern (most suitable for younger readers but in no way dumbed down) are the Chronicles of Pyrdain by Lloyd Alexander, but I assume you already know them, as they are around for quite some time.
