In Kittrell's Circle of Sorcerers: A Mages of Bloodmyr novel, Laedron, a young man with a talent for magic leaves his village to study magic with his mother's former teacher, setting aside his own desires to learn from the seemingly grander mages from a large academy. He leaves home earlier than planned, due to a message arriving from his new teacher requesting him urgently, as she suspected there may be trouble. The journey to his new home is uneventful, and he begins learning rapidly, to his teacher's suprise. A summons arrives requesting that they attend a meeting of all the Circle mages, and dramatic events proceed to unfold rapidly.

Definitely keeps you reading, quick paced (though a little too quick at times - but then I prefer more detail and description), not a giant main cast like Martin or Tolkein - more in keeping with the feel of the smaller main cast of Eragon or possibly the first Dragonlance series (though this book focuses on Laedron much more than a group.) The author created a very interesting world - I am particularly interested in learning more about the history of the realms and mages - which is just different enough to set it aside, but not so far-fetched as to alienate the reader.

On the downside, there were a few things I felt could be improved. Character development - some decisions/actions made by the characters were just not in keeping with anything they had displayed before (and suddenly, a leadership trait appears!), while other characters were so little developed they felt like they were destined to be doomed*. Expanding the earlier part of the novel would probably help a bit with this, and make the story flow better in places.

This book (and series) is the transition of a small village boy into a world-class mage. It is a great read for a great price. I have read the entire series and my only regret is that there isn't more to read. While some elements in the book seem to get wrapped up entirely too quickly (I must admit that I am very biased here....I am a Wheel of Time fan and used to very intricate plots that span many, many books), I really think that the plots and characters are interesting. I'm fairly picky about fantasy books and I will keep an eye out for more books by Brian Kittrell.

I stumbled across this book by chance, and now I am glad that I did. I truly enjoyed the story and like the main character in the book. As soon as I am able to, I will be purchasing the second book, because I can't wait to see what happens next.

I was hooked on 'The Circle of Sorcerers' from the first page. Author Brian Kittrell weaves an amazing story, complete with characters you cheer for and a story that you get completely lost in.
I actually hated when I reached the end and I'm waiting for the next one in the series.
Laedron Telpist is a young sorcerer whose life is changed when he must go up against those who murdered his teacher and threaten to wipe out all sorcerers. Laedron, who is only 16 grows beyond his years as he fights to save friends and his own life. The story pulls you in and you feel you're right there beside these fantastic characters.
I can't wait to see where Brian is going to take us next, but I'll be right there with him and Laedron on the journey.
I reviewed this for Book Rooster and have no problem recommending it to anyone.

Format: Kindle Edition
I was pleasantly surprised by The Circle of Sorcerers. When I started reading it, I thought it would be another Harry Potter-type, with a student mage learning his craft. That part of the story was extremely short, however, as Laedron's story quickly changed to an active adventure. I enjoyed the travels (though a map would be helpful) and supporting characters (more development of them would be nice). The conflict between church and mages is a good story framework, and I'm hoping future volumes will expand on the history of the lands involved. And the book ended rather abruptly, so I was glad to see the sequel is available. I'm looking forward to reading it and seeing Brian Kittrell's writing develop.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

This book is about a society made of sorcerers or mages that have the ability to control the elements and those that worship a great sorceress that used her magic at least a thousand years before to win a war. The main character. Laedron Telpist, a young man who possesses these powers, through a series of circumstances beyond his control, finds himself in the middle of a conflict. He must learn to use his gifts on his own and at the same time save his friends and attempt to prevent a war.

I found the book enjoyable and interesting and a very quick read. I did find that where the book ended was quite strange. I think it should have ended a one or two chapters earlier and these chapters should have been the beginning of what I presume is the next book in the series. The book should have ended when Laedron decides that it his fate to rid his world of the man who has set out to destroy his own kind. Instead, the book ends in what appears to be the middle of this undertaking at an odd point in the story telling.

I look forward to book two to see what happens to Laedron, his friends and his family.
