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 really enjoyed this book, and it kept me wishing for more at the end. Since this is a trilogy, that is definitely a must. I wanted the next installment right away to find out what happened. Thankfully, I didn't have to wait. The next book was readily available! I liked the fact that Traven (the main character of the series) was a simple farm boy, easily embarrassed and "green" to his available power as a wielder, having to learn how to use it, and unknowing what he was capable of.
It is well written, and very nicely constructed as a combination adventure and romance tale.
I also liked the character of "Blaize" very much. We all need a knowledgeable warrior to help us through, and Traven has Blaize! Ever since I read E.R.Tolkein's "Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings" years ago, I've really liked fantasy novels, and this one begins a winner. In my humble opinion, it's a very worthwhile read! It will keep you occupied, and leave you wanting more!

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.

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.

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.

This book isn't staggeringly well written. The language is basic, and inelegant. The characters don't seem very well fleshed out, and their speech is somehow devoid of personality.

I initially expected to have nothing positive to say about this book as a result. In spite of myself, however, I found that I wanted to see where it was going. The ending was actually well paced and exciting, and the characters had begun to take on a bit of life.

I am unclear as to what age-level the author was writing toward, but it falls short as an adult novel. It might be more suitable for young-adult audiences.

The book wasn't terrible, but needed a lot of polish. I suspect the author will get better as he hones his craft, so I look forward to seeing more.
