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.

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

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.

Being fortunate to know Allen Johnston on a personal level, this book really intrigued me. This is not my usual taste in reading but I wanted to read it to understand Allen’s passion for writing. I did not expect to become so drawn to the characters and the story line in the book.
I liked that he put in a prologue in this first book to introduce his readers to Kade and explain how he became the apprentice. He briefly but effectively walked his readers through the emotional process that his parents and grandfather went through to ultimately decide to allow him to pursue the Calling. It was just long enough to help his readers understand how the story began without taking up too much of his reader’s time and allow them to get to the real story he wanted to tell.

Without giving away too much of the plot, I can tell you that this book drew me in very early in the first chapter as Kade met what would be his friend and companion on the rest of his journey to becoming a Chosen. Allen’s writing is very descriptive and you can really visualize the characters and what is happening throughout the story. Maybe it helps that I know Allen personally but I was truly able to get a mental picture of what Kade would look like and what his dragon would look like.

Allen has a wonderful imagination that makes this book a pleasure to read. I had a hard time putting it down once I got a couple of chapters into it. His description of dramatic scenes has a way of making you feel like you are right there watching it. I love the way he finds creative and amusing ways to introduce Kade to new characters. The way he writes, you can really feel the connection between the characters as the bonds begin to form.

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"!
