Markus' world is filled with different beings resembling one or another type of non-human life capable of speaking, Lizardkind, Rakki (having tails and fur much like wolves or dogs), and dragons. On his way to find the Dragon Citadel, he comes across a couple of Rakki losing a battle with an imp. Using a spell from his dreams, he manages to save the female, and is invited back to their village to rest and resupply as thanks. While there, Markus learns he has become is country's most wanted by the Guard.
I found this to be a clean, easy read. The story has all the elements a young (or old) reader could want for a fantasy novel. There's the requisite girl his age for Markus to become interested in, the obligatory over-protective father, understanding mother, a quest, forbidden magic, an evil wizard and greedy king.
With a couple of exceptions where I found passages the read like a word was missing, the story is well written and fairly well edited. The biggest exception to this is the difference in the title on the cover of the book versus what is on the inside of the book. An easy enough fix for eBooks, not so for the print copies. This should have been caught before going to press.
Due to the issues mentioned above, I can only give this book three stars. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. June 6, 2016. Having seen that the problems with the title have been corrected, I am revising my rating. Not catching that error was a pretty major gaff all the way around. I am very happy to see it corrected and am adjusting my rating to 4 stars.
I loved the characters, especially because the author gave us plenty of them to really get to know, love and hate. It was great to watch them develop and really get to see where some of the mains were 'hopefully' heading.
I liked the element of surprise, in the twists and turns the author provided for us. The flow of the story matched this perfectly, as you could feel the suspense growing when something was about to happen, but were often still caught off guard by who was involved or how it happened. I loved this, especially because it meant I got to think through the story.
This book had a great feel to it. I mean this in the sense that I could really feel myself getting into the story, loving the plot and characters and getting very excited that there is more to the series. Akin to a lot of the great fantasy writers, I want more more more.
I highly recommend this book to lovers of George R. R. Martin, David Eddings, etc.
** I received this book for free and voluntarily provided my honest and unbiased opinion.
Markus is 16 and looking for a wizard that will give him a letter of recommendation for the College Of Wizardy. Markus
ends up talking to Tolen the Wise, who sends him on a quest to end the darkness and find the dragonwand before it ends
up getting into the wrong hands. Markus discovers growing powers and makes allies. Very good and interesting book from
start to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a book that has you wanting to keep reading to see
what is going to happen. Read this book if it sounds interesting to you, to see if Markus completes the quest in time.
