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.

I have never stopped readin a book half way through. Never. I can't read this one anymore. The way the characters talk to each other is so very annoying. Every time someone speaks, they say the name of who they are speaking to. Who does that?

The story line could have been ok. But I don't think it was written for a young adult, I think it was written by a young adult. Honest. I'm about to go look up the author.

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.

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

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 Horrible and unreadable. Written by a 6 year old? May 12, 2012
By Morchok
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is so horribly written it's incredible. So bad, that I was (and still am) fairly convinced that I was reading something done by an 6 year old. Another reviewer said that it needs more editing: every sentence in this book needs editing.

Often a poorer writing style isn't cause to drop the book. I love fantasy and can tolerate a lack description, plot holes, shallow characters, etc. Not everyone can be a great story-teller anyway, and it's nice reading about the fantasy worlds others create.

This book, however, is literally a pain to read. The sentences are *consistently* fragmented and cut short. Not just a couple sentences here and there, but nearly all of them. This alone makes it quite annoying to read.

On top of this, the author also *consistently* starts off sentences with the exact same word. I've counted parts in the book (by just flipping to random pages) where five or more "sentences" in a row start with "He". Sets of three of these "sentences" in a row starting with "He" are actually quite common and consistent throughout the book. Truly a painful read.

If I was a 3rd grade teacher marking any excerpt of this, I'd probably give it a failing grade. Creating proper sentences is something that a child should be very adept at by age 8-9. It isn't difficult to write readable material either - simply reading back over what he wrote would eliminate more than half this author's problems.

I commend the author on his try (seems like a nice idea/story) but such a badly written work like this isn't something you charge people money for and pop DRM on, even if it's a measly $1 (he actually had the audacity to price his second book ~3x higher).
