Publisher's Summary

Nothing will be as it was. Cities will crumble to ash. Ashen wastes will become lush and fertile. Rulers will serve, and servants will rule.

Pentamuria, the world of five kingdoms, is in a time of change. The power of the nobles and mages is threatened. War is upon them, although they do not know yet when or with whom. Thus, the mages are gathering in their capital, Ringwall, to prepare together against any possible enemy.

At this time, the orphan boy Nill is found by the Druids. He possesses considerable magical skills. So he is taken to Ringwall, where he is to be trained in the magical arts alongside his fellow students. Nill, who is an outsider, shows no respect for the traditions of the magical world, and challenges the ways of the mages.

Soon this mages start to ask themselves: Could this powerful stranger bring the foretold end of their reign?

If yes, Nill has to be dealt with. By whatever means....

Great book,

I have almost 500 books in my library. Absolutely love this book. Probably the second review I have ever written.

Not for everyone<br />

I truly enjoyed the way this story is told and how it meanders. while many people will like this book, it isdnt for everyone. I find it to be something aimed at the Sci-fi crowd. That being said, not giving it a try would be a shame.

Good story

Its a decent story. The flow was a bit off here and there. I never felt the build up for the final two/three battles...they felt rushed and lacked in depth. I will probably listen to a sequel, but I am concerned the story could fall apart easily. I subtracted a couple stars for this, the storyline is walking a very delicate edge.

As a side note, Mr. Perkins did a decent job through much of the book, but in several instances the voices of two or more characters began to merge. It became difficult to figure out who said what. I subtracted a star for this, but it is really a solid 3.9 star job.

Love this world you've created.

The characters are entrancing and the story is amazing. I became enveloped in the first chapter. I was so upset when I realized that this book came out at the end of last year. Now I have to wait for the next part of this clearly epic saga. Can't wait!

The flow was off.

I like the story but the flow is wrong on several parts . I would definitely read the second book but looking back, his school years had no real separation. the story jumps a few days and or months with no warning. l am trying to figure out what the real mystery is..
