Book Description

Kade looks up at his executioner with no fear or hate, watching . . .waiting. At six months old, he could hardly do much more as his grandfather agonizes over the task of taking the life of his only grandson.

Born with the rare ability to control the Divine, Kade has the potential to become one of the most powerful Chosen to ever exist. Taken from his parents, at the age of ten, by his grandfather, a Master Chosen, Kade is taught to harness the power of the Divine for good. After a decade of training, Kade learns the harsh reality of the dangerous world he is about to be thrust into, as his Master is brutally murdered right before his eyes. Kade soon realizes he is next.

With the help of a dragon, a species thought to have been a myth, and a feisty Essence Guardian, Kade must discover who – or what – is trying to eradicate his kind, before the Chosen are brought to extinction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Verry good book January 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Picked this one up as a E-book as something to read to help me get to sleep very bad idea that was for hours later drawing near the conclusion of the book realized I was going to have a pretty tired day at work but it was worth it The characters are quite enjoyable the interactions between Kade and Rayden were fun, and I always enjoy a book where the Protagonist has a dragon because come on who doesn't want a dragon for a companion also hoping to see more of Chance well enough typing I'm off to get the next in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant storytelling and… DRAGONS! June 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The Divine Apprentice is a book about a gift that is a “double-edged sword”. The foreboding the possessor of this gift has to withstand is a burden Kade has to control. I like the fact that the Divine Power isn’t something easy to achieve, or something you are simply born with: it takes a lot of hard work, dedication and perseverance to improve… Only to find out the power is a Sword of Damocles that he will have to deal with until his last days, making him blessed and cursed at the same time. Kade is rather ambitious and wants to learn the most impressive callings, instead of focusing on the basics. In this sense, the character is impatient and eager to advance quickly, and that’s an expected characteristic of someone who’s learning the same subject for almost a decade. Yes, the Divine Power is THAT hard to learn: despite his best efforts, he was still considered an apprentice.
Allen J Johnston takes good care of his prose. Besides not overdoing the usage of adjectives, he understands the polysemy concept, by giving new meanings to the adjectives. For instance, when referring to a character that is utterly pissed off, he writes about the “scalding tone” of his voice. That’s a subtle and elegant way of presenting the character’s feelings, and it is really pleasant to see this polished style in a fantasy series, since most authors of fantasy are NOT this careful with their writing. To read an author that understands and uses the connotative meaning of words is a pleasure. To me, this is the best thing about this book: the neatly written prose.
And… there are dragons! What else can I say? I’ll definitely read the other books of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great First Book to a Great Series June 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a huge fantasy fan, so after reading through the generous sample, which gives a great taste of what's to come, I felt pretty compelled to purchase this novel and give it a chance, and I certainly was far from disappointed. The Divine Apprentice, is a fantasy novel that tells the story of Kade, who was taken from a young age and forced to study the ways of Divine Power. We follow the clever Kade through his journey to discover who is trying to eradicate his kind with the help a mythical dragon.

From the start of the novel, Allen, reels you in with stunning settings that are told with creative, breath-taking descriptions that make sure each scene comes alive. Settings keep you hooked to the story's amazing plot line and it's thought out main character.

Besides the setting, Kade is also something to awe at. He's a clever character who weaves through all sorts of puzzles and tricks using clues and sorts. It's a fun to watch him solve his way through whatever the novel throws at him with astonishing cleverness. Not to mention Kade has a frickin dragon as a companion, which makes the story even more memorable because it's pretty hard to forget a dragon.

It's hard not falling in love with this novel as their's so many things Allen does right. I would recommend this novel to anybody who's a fan of the fantasy genre as there's nothing that can go wrong by picking up the first novel to this amazing series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!!! June 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book to read at around 10 am and didn't put it down until about 9 pm. Usually I'll sit and read a book over the course of a few days. But, this one I simply could NOT put down!

Instantly I fell in love with Kade, a young man who was taken from his home at the age of ten to study the use of Divine Power. His grandfather/mentor was a man of amazing wisdom who knew better than to affect too much of what his visions told him. Even after his passing, this amazing man helps Kade through notes and clues while never giving too much information. As a result, Kade must use his intellect more than his ability to control Divine Power in order to save himself and those he loves.

They say that the brain is the most powerful weapon a human has at their disposal and Kade shows this accurately as he tries to sort through puzzles and destroy the monsters commanded by the one who hunts his kind. Everything he does shows his incredible sense of right and wrong and his inability to accept the worst. From having the wisdom not to kill a dragon who was already close to death to defeating a creature most would think impossible to saving the lives of his parents...this apprentice showed more resolve than a hardened veteran soldier while having the softness of heart that is so prevalent in youth. Kade definitely wormed his way into my heart from the very beginning.

At times it seemed as though the characters were too perfect, but then they would show their realistic side in the doubts and fears they obviously felt. There is a sense of honor there and a determination of conviction you don't find in many people, yet it seems to come so easily to Kade and those he comes into contact with.
