Secondly, the whole thing with the older wizards hunting the main character just didn't feel plausible to me. If they really wanted the main character to join them then why would they go out of their way to antagonize him? They never really tried to win him over and once one of them finally did try he gave up after about 2 minutes.
Like I stated previously, the writing was good the only thing that was missing was the details and unfortunately without those it was really hard to connect with anyone in the story. Honestly, I don't feel like this is something the writer can't overcome and I will look for the sequel.
I thought it was strange how lackadaisical the hero was about training. His abilities not only are exciting, but given the circumstances that he's being hunted by 3 powerful wizards and the potential for his vulnerability it seems like he'd not throw hissy fits and only train every few days or so. The romance was not too believable.
Also, when the sorcerer/mentor demonstrates how easily it is for him to be controlled why does there seem to be no effort towards learning how to block that?
So, I decided to buy book 2 and see if it maybe gets a little better.
