A powerful wielder of magic is preparing to conquer a world whose people only remember magic in legends of the past. A king grappling with personal tragedy prepares his army to save his kingdom. A restless princess seeks love and adventure. In the middle of it all is Traven, a poor, ambitious peasant who dreams of being more than a simple woodcutter and unknowingly holds the key to saving the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the way to being excellent... November 7, 2012
By Kiki
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wielder's Awakening is a good story, that could be a great story with just a little more work. As a novel geared towards young adults the book is not overly complicated, yet still enjoyable. I would suggest reading Wielder's Awakening to any fantasy fans betwwen perhaps 12 and 25 as the story is probably best suited for that range. IF you prefer something a bit more developed I would suggest another series like The Blood and Brotherhood Saga by Jeremy Laszlo, or the Mageborn series by Michael Manning. Still, I award five stars, as anyone who takes the time to produce a book, especially for young readers, is deserving of praise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish writing, weak story and characters March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm only writing this review because I don't want others who see the 4 and 5 star reviews to make the same mistake and think it may not be that bad. I read a LOT of books, and a lot of fantasy. I'm used to giving "bad fantasy" a lot of leeway, and kindle books even more. However, this book goes far beyond my tolerances. It feels like it was written for a young audience, however it doesn't come close to any of the classics of young adult fantasy. The main characters are two dimensional, the plot is nearly nonexistant and the writting is distractingly poor. I have been forcing myself to keep reading it because I keep thinking it will improve, but after >40% through I am giving up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thought I Mistakenly Bought a Kids' Book August 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first few chapters, I checked back on Amazon to confirm that this book wasn't intended for preteens. No, it's just poorly written. I'm a fairly avid reader, specifically of this type of fantasy, and this is the first time I can recall quitting a trilogy after one book.

The only positive I can say about the book is that it might be encouragement for an aspiring writer to see how low the bar can be to make some money off your writing. I suppose it was also somewhat amusing to see how big the train wreck could get. Nonexistant editing, awkward dialogue, stunted style, ridiculous plot holes and directions, lack of any compelling original content that hasn't been done (and done better) countless times before.

A young man goes on an adventure and discovers he is the best at whatever he tries. Basically a mediocre and very predictable fantasy story.
The writing itself is poor and written at a very low level. Expect a lot of "He thinks this good and he won't let that get him down. He thinks the woman is very pretty" Also expect a number characters to be introduced and have nearly no bearing on the story. I can only assume that they might play a role in later books.
The bright points in this book are the price and the ability to text-to-speech and lend the book. Sadly you won't want to lend it out and the text-to-speech is some how done poorly causing an already poorly written book to sound like its being spoken aloud by a child struggling to read a book that is somehow to advance for him. I can't explain why this book would sound so much worse that other books I have listened to on the kindle but I can say this it was by far the worse I have heard.
After having read all of the five star reviews I kept reading the book expecting it to get better. I can only assume that all of the five stars reviewers either know the author personally or have never read or watched any good fantasy. That said given the price of the kindle version I think the book isn't a bad value if you are really bored and want to read yet another coming of age young warrior mage story.
The 'twists' in this story are either predictable or ultimately do not effect the story. I think its best to just spoil some of them for you to give you an example of what you are in for. SPOLERS: Twist! The young man arrives late to the merchants academy because for some unknown reason they decided to start early and they waited to decide this till it wouldn't be possible to warn him in time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Robuster November 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Parts of the story was out standing A real page turner,while other parts was as bad as anything I've read in quite a while.This book could have used a LOT more editing. Traven is a young woodcutter being sent away to merchants school by his grandparents.He has no knowledge of the world outside his village.His adventure starts slowly and is hard to get through at times.The story does not flow well.But you run across parts that grab your interest and you find yourself compelled to keep reading.The book was interesting and I do think most fantasy readers will find it to be worth the price they paid.Like I wrote above it could have used better editing.

1.0 out of 5 stars absolute crap May 24, 2012
By bdub18
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
reading the epilogue I thought that this had the potential to be good...apparently not. It proceeded to delve very weakly into the cliche farm boy character with hidden powers that will someday save the world. The plot is VERY predictable. and the main farm boy miraculously learns new trades almost instantly. Finally, and most importantly, the writing is atrocious. It reads like something written by a 5th grader, with simple sentences and repetitive word usage. I could not finish this book, and I really hate not finishing a book when I start one.

This book is ABSOLUTE CRAP and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone
