Furies of Calderon: Book One of the Codex Alera by Jim Butcher.

I've been a fan of Jim Butcher's since I read the first Dresden File books.  When mis(h)takes had the first in another of his series on her blog, I had to add it to the list!

From the back of the book:  For a thousand years, the people of Alera have united agaist the agressive and threatening races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, wood, and metal.  But in the remote Calderon Valley, the boy Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting.  At fifteen, he has no wind fury to help him fly, no fire fury to light his lamps.  Yet as the Alerans' most savage enemy - the Marat horde - returns to the Valley, Tavi's courage and resourcefulness will ba a power greater than any fury, one that could turn the tides of war.
