Book Description

The opening book in the Ingenairii Series introduces Alec the Healer, in the days when he worked as a menial helper in a traveling carnival that toured the great cities of the magic land of the Dominion. Alec's carnival makes a fateful decision to visit lands in the wilderness, where he is exposed to violence and fear, and where he is forced to scramble for survival. When Alec and Natalie plunge into the ruins of Riverside, the adventures begin to come fast and furious, and before he knows it, Alec will acquire new abilities to heal the injuries of other in miraculous ways, and then be pressed to exercise those abilities to save the most powerful noble in the Dominion, the Duke of Goldenfields!

Saving the Duke, and discovering that his act of healing will become a political act that plunges him into court intrigue, brings Alec face-to-face with new challenges and new people - allies and adversaries who seek to control him and his powers.

With his change in abilities, change in status, and his uncertainty about what he wants to do, Alec has to decide who to trust, and how to protect himself in a complex world.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awkward, May 7, 2010
By Sascha
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased the first book in this series after seeing several positive reviews. I also purchased the second, as I'm always willing to believe an author can improve after a first book. However, I found the books excessively expository in nature, the conversation in them awkward and annoyingly religious. Christian fiction should have been the first tag on these books. Also, the author could benefit from a better editor. Far too many words are used to express thoughts and ideas; and young, runaway circus animal tenders have advanced vocabularies and formal language skills that are not believable.

I also found character development to be unbelievable. Too many serendipitous happenings because "God has a plan" really made this difficult to read. And finally, some egregious grammar and anachronistic words (rookie, throttle, guys) made this painful to read. I give two stars because the story line itself is well constructed and I wondered what happened to a couple of characters all the way to the end of the first book. Also the magic system is interesting. But after reading the first two books, I can't keep going. I'm not that curious about what happens next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read December 30, 2008
Format:Paperback
"A fascinating story of fiction and fantasy that continues to build momentum with each page taking unexpected plot twists and turns. One part believable love story, one part magical fantasy, one part electrifying adventure and, as a whole, moralistic, but not deafening, in its overall tone.

A young orphan boy, Alex, starts out as a stable hand in a circus caravan in the sophisticated yet ancient mythological Dominion lands and ends up as a powerful healer and possessor of great powers. The reader never knows where the story is going next, but is not dissatisfied with where he finds himself.

The authors knits together many different characters, themes and subplots into a wonderful story. It was a great break from my normal reading list and left me wanting to know what happens next. Book Two?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down August 26, 2008
Format:Paperback
Once I started I couldn't put this book down. Wonderful characters, exciting story and interesting plot made it a great read. It is a story for all ages - after I finished, my 17 year old son read the book and can't wait for the second one (the excerpt at the end of the book said it will be out this fall). If you like fantasy/adventure novels you will like this one - a lot happens in one book.

Young boy discovers he has magical powers and while using them for good, makes influential friends who help guide him through the intrigue of his world. He learns to fight using his magical powers and becomes a great swordsman.

I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, and great series until about book 6 June 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this series up until book 6 (Saving the Ingenairii).
This particular book was quite good.
World setting and political posturing is well detailed and orchestrated.
Religious themes are in place and serve to move the plot but don't disproportionately dominate the story.
In book 6, this series takes a turn for the worse... to the point that I've stopped reading it mid-book.
I will probably post a review of that book with spoiler alerts in it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading March 8, 2012
By Edrice
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not fantasy... it is religious Christian fiction, and should be appropriately tagged. I would never have bought it or wasted my time beginning to read it had I known what it really was.
Fine for those who are so inclined, but not for those of us who are looking for great fantasy reading.
This would also benefit from thorough editing. The writing itself is stilted and the dialogue stiff and unconvincing.
I may have continued to read it had there not been so many glaring errors and if it had not been one dimensional and preachy.
Unfortunate all the way around. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

2.0 out of 5 stars Explicitly religious March 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the first couple of reviews on this page and though that this would be a great fantasy novel. Unfortunately, I was mistaken. It's a none-too-subtle Christianity-driven young teen story that preaches the New Testament influence of John Mark. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's wildly mislabeled as fantasy when it really is more closely aligned to Christian fiction. If that's your thing, you'll probably enjoy it. The characters are simple and things tend to be fairly black/white.

If you are looking for a less moralistic coming-of-age story, I suggest you pass on this.

4.0 out of 5 stars An accidental read... November 18, 2008
Format:Paperback
I rarely read fiction, let alone fantasy but I needed some poolside reading for a recent vacation in Tortola, BVI and a friend had recommended it. It is an amazing story and kept me turning the pages rapidly. I ended up reading it in two sittings. The author creates rich settings and characters in a fantasy world that at times seems it may have existed long ago and at others in the future. It is a complex story that is a little thought provoking...there are elements of religion, the politics of power and even circuitous attempts to weave some complicated social issues that are present in all of our lives in the real world today. I haven't been able to find anything else by this author and so I am assuming this is his freshman effort. The cover promises futher "volumes" following the orphan Alec and many others through futher adventures. I for one will be watching for the story to continue...
