Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

These 13 stories share the theme of the hero still learning, whether in school, as an apprentice, or when the first adventure begins. The quality varies, although all the contributors are experienced authors capable of professional polish. One of the best entries is Esther Friesner's "Roomies," about a new arrival to the Royal Academy of Damsel Arts. Friesner's wit has never failed before and doesn't now. Sherwood Smith's "The Princess, the Page and the Master Cook's Son" is also well done, as is Vera Nazarin's fable, "Three Names of the Hidden God," and G. Scott Huggins' "Giantkiller," an amusing spy-story takeoff. Murray, Frieda

Filled with a baker's dozen cheerful and often humorous stories, this book is a fun read. The authors have managed to provide thought provoking depth, and leave you pondering these polished gems for weeks afterwards. This book makes a good read for young teens and adults alike.

I really enjoy short stories, so these stories were a fabulous treat. The one thing I felt was a misnomer was the IN TRAINING part of Heroes in Training. the first story surpassed my expectations and drew me in to buying the book. Most of the other stories portrayed established heroes, which was fine, but not quite what I was expecting. Other than that, it was fantastic read and a wonderful collection of short stories.
