Publisher's Summary

Mystic is the start of an enchanting new epic fantasy series from Jason Denzel, the founder of Dragonmount.

I called to the Myst, and it sent us you. For hundreds of years, high-born nobles have competed for the chance to learn of the Myst. Powerful, revered, and often reclusive, Mystics have the unique ability to summon and manipulate the Myst: the underlying energy that lives at the heart of the universe. Once in a very great while, they take an apprentice, always from the most privileged sects of society. Such has always been the tradition - until a new High Mystic takes her seat and chooses Pomella AnDone, a restless, low-born teenager, as a candidate.

Commoners have never been welcomed among the select few given the opportunity to rise beyond even the highest nobility. So when Pomella chooses to accept the summons and journey to Kelt Apar, she knows that she will have more to contend with than the competition for the apprenticeship. Breaking both law and tradition, Pomella undergoes three trials against the other candidates to prove her worthiness. As the trials unfold, Pomella navigates a deadly world of intolerance and betrayal, unaware that ruthless conspirators intend to make her suffer for having the audacity to seek to unravel the secrets of the Myst.

    "Great first book"

    While I'm not a literary critic, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This is the first novel by Jason Denzel and he did an outstanding job! It was great from start to finish. I look forward to his future work!

    "Excellent debut novel"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    The characters were appealing and well developed. The narrator was excellent. The story moved along at a good pace and the ending was unexpected. All in all, an enjoyable audio book.

    Story
    "After the 1st hour it sucked me in."

    Still I give the story and performance and story a solid 3.5 stars, and thus 4. The issues I had with some of the character voices are the Valley Girls that popped up, and while (and this includes the story) the protagonist appears weak, the emphasis, and overly dramatised speaking part, made the protagonist come off as even weaker. As for the story, in the beginning the protagonist comes off as somewhat strong, but once she gets to her destination she comes off as being weak. I didn't like that inconsistency. Otherwise I thought the story was pretty good, but still not deserving an honest, or solid 4 stars. Assuming there are more in the series, and there must be, based on the ending, I'm going to continue the rest of the series.
