Review

"The author, with his great imagination, writing creativity, and sense of humor takes us through scenes full of surprises, unexpected turns, and new discoveries. Although this book is beneficial to everyone, I would especially recommend it to the young generation because it teaches them the great values of life." - Lana Lykova (High School English Teacher)

Heavily influenced by Christian themes, the story is standard fantasy coming of age fare that was fast paced and enjoyable. In fact, it probably moved a bit too quickly, I would have liked to see further development of the magic system and the main character. That said, it was tightly written, well edited (in fact, I don't remember a single typo, a rarity in independently published books like this) and I highly enjoyed the book so I don't deduct anything. Don't be afraid to give this one a shot!

I truly enjoyed this book. I would recommend it for upper elementary to adult readers. One of the most important things about the story is that the main characters were true heroes. They were portrayed as ordinary people who rose to greater heights than they felt they were able to achieve. Whereas this book my not be the great literature as found in the Tolkien books, I think it mirrors well the essence of them. I enjoyed it as much as the Narnia stories. My only criticism would be that it was a little slow getting started. This was not enough to hinder me from staying up far too late at night to read just one more chapter!

Lovely story, the storyline keeps you guessing and has some surprises. I do think the characters have more power than they should, bit of a surprise that they are faced with so much overwhelming bad guys so early in their career. I'd have liked to read more about how they learnt to use their power. But I do like the way they need each other to be successful.

There is a touch of religious overtones and a moral to the story, but its s good one so no probs.

It is easy to read and I will be looking at other books by this author

I don't know if I wrote a review about this book the first time I went through it, so I will write another or the first which ever this is.
On the second read I found I enjoyed the read as much if not more than the first. Young love, coming of age, all mixed in with magic and some pretty good battles. Creatures, death and resurrection oh my what fun.
I would like to see more of these characters and find out if the kids grow up to marry a suffer through puberty of their children. Thanks for the escape.

This was an amazing book and had few flaws. From my point of view, it was confusing when traphis and tyron were talking about what really happened from the past. I would recommend this book for young magic lovers everywhere. May even seem like the next Harry potter

It took just a second in the beginning to get used to the writing, because I had just finished a novel by a different author. I almost put it down because I was distracted. I am thrilled that I didn't. Fun, fast, engaging, and clean. Good messages without being obnoxiously preachy. I will definitely let my teen read this.

Traphis: A Wizards's Tale is a fine fantasy sure to please both Potter and Eragon fans. A coming of age story with plenty of magic and a good cast of characters. The story is well crafted, highly polished, with excellent dialog and three dimensional characters. One review mentions that it was a bit too fast paced, I actually enjoy a very fast pace in the books I read. "Traphis" kept a good pace with some intense moments interspersed throughout the story.
Traphis is an empathetic character. Falin is a good mentor. My preference is for intense, action-driven stories, and the author does an excellent job forming this world and its characters so that the reader will find much here to enjoy.

This was a most enjoyable read. The author built upon the characters so that you came to feel as they did. This produced for me a desire to see some characters advance and to enjoy when some were put into their place. The magic system presented in this book is thoughtful and well designed. I could easily see a follow up book, but one is not required to fully appreciate the story line. I do recommend this book for anyone who appreciates magic and Wizards.
