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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book but has flaws May 15, 2014
By Hope
I had the privilege of receiving a free signed copy of this book by the author. Fantasy has always been my favorite gene, and none is dearer to my heart than a young hero's journey of discovery, which is what this tale is. As far as epics go, The Divine Apprentice is low scale, with the majority of the book focusing on Kade's personal growth and merely hinting at the major conflict against the Big Baddie (Kade meets him only briefly), but the setting up of Kade's character still makes this book enjoyable.

First off, the pros:

Dragons. I am a HUGE dragon fan, and sadly I don't encounter them enough in my fantasy reading. I mean, c'mon. DRAGONS! Dragons make everything better! Rayden, the dragon of the story, is a lovely take on the whole dragon thing. He reminded me a lot of Toothless from the How To Train Your Dragon movie. He doesn't have human level intelligence, but he's at least as intelligence as a pretty smart pet one would have. Another thing I love about Rayden is how he and Kade got together. Instead of Kade hatching him or taming him, their first encounter involves a fight against a powerful monster in which they save each other's lives. That's a bond that is far more powerful and goes far deeper than a simple imprinting or a gradual working on Kade's part to build up the dragon's trust.

Magic. Another thing I love in fantasy is a good magic system. Two of my favorite magic systems are Brandon Sanderson's Allomancy and Patrick Rothfuss's Sympathy. This magic system could well become my third favorite. The magic system here is called the Divine, and can only be wielded by a few Chosen. The Divine involves a series of Moves, which is mostly complex hand movements, combined with the proper words at the end of the sequences.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good March 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this Book. a little short but it has two sequels out so that is not bad. The magic system was interesting, the story was slightly cliched in that he is a boy from prophecy, but I like the story anyway. And he has a pet dragon, that is always nice in a fantasy story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy to know this epic continues! October 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a lot. Some might say I read too much. My job affords me the pleasure of constantly being surrounded by books. It's heavenly. Through the many amazing authors, both best selling and indie alike, and the many different genres I enjoy, I have come across some truly sensational literature. With that said, it has been years, upon years since I've found a book that it truly pained me to set down.

Allen J. Johnston has a marvelous imagination and an obvious savvy for storytelling. "The Divine Apprentice" is an intoxicating read and I unabashedly admit I was hooked from the first chapter. I found it a perfect deluge of everything I could ever ask for in an epic fantasy novel. From his original storyline, grisly villains and incredibly depicted action scenes to his clever, believable characters (including a playful yet fierce pet dragon), it was an absolute seamless, fantastical pleasure to read.

I highly recommend this book and series to readers of all ages. There's something within the pages for everyone to enjoy. 5 hearty stars for Allen J. Johnston & "The Divine Apprentice"!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story with dragons in it! October 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a really cool read. I started out reading a sample and soon realized a sample wasn't enough, so I finally bought it. Kade was a super cool character and the way he got the dragon was artfully created and portrayed in a great manner. I love dragon books and this one was at the top of my list of dragon books I'd want to read over and over. And now I can since it's in my kindle. Great story!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not really into Sorcerer's and Dragons, But this looked interesting from the cover, ordered the book , it did take me over a week to read it at night into the wee hours of the morning, it keeps you on the edge of your seating with suspense and wanting more, looking forward to buying the next series. Very well written and the imagination of this writer is amazing and amusing at times as well!

The author did a splendid job of worldbuilding while telling the tale; the details flowed naturally. It is a pretty slow story that builds to action in the last 25% of the story. Read more
