Penric and the Shaman by Lois McMaster Bujold
This is the second novella about Penrick in her Chalion fantasy universe. This is a self-published novella by Lois McMaster Bujold. It's $3.99 at Amazon, but should be in other stores as well. I recommend about anything by Lois McMaster Bujold.
In this NOVELLA set in The World of the Five Gods and four years after the events in “Penric’s Demon”, Penric is a divine of the Bastard’s Order as well as a sorcerer and scholar, living in the palace where the Princess-Archdivine holds court. His scholarly work is interrupted when the Archdivine agrees to send Penric, in his role as sorcerer, to accompany a “Locator" of the Father’s Order, assigned to capture Inglis, a runaway shaman charged with the murder of his best friend. However, the situation they discover in the mountains is far more complex than expected. Penric’s roles as sorcerer, strategist, and counselor are all called upon before the end.

It was good (of course - it's Bujold), but not as good as Penric's Demon. I liked seeing the characters again, and the story was OK, but...
(The following are spoilers for both Penric and the Shaman and other books in the Five Gods series)
