Publisher's Summary

Apprentice Swordceror, the first volume of the Blademage Saga, is a debut novel that tells the story of a young man trapped between the separate and incompatible worlds of Wizards and Warriors. The main character, Kevon, is easily identified with, possessing the raw talent we all wish we had, and the naiveté we hope we lack. His journey through betrayal, love, loss, and personal growth is accentuated by the friends and allies that he comes to surround himself with. The story will appeal to classic fantasy fans, while the different angles on magic and standard fantastical races will satisfy those who need something different than the usual fare.

Where's the ending?"?"?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book itself was ok! I would ,erecomend it to any teen who likes this kind of fantasy. However I believe there should be a disclaimer that the book is shoddily finished in order to make way for a sequel!!!

What was most disappointing about Chris Hollaway’s story?

Ending

What didn’t you like about Jamie du Pont MacKenzie’s performance?

Performance was ok . Not great!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Book was good till the end which makes the whole listen seem worthless.

Any additional comments?

No!

Light good listen

Short light story that moves forward at a reasonable pace. Not an overly complex theme, but interesting non the less.

horrible

i really can't believe i even listened to the whole thing. It may be fine for a 12 year old starting to listen to audio books, but not for adults. it was very juvenile.
