Publisher's Summary

Spellswords, Wardens, Traders, Scholars, Diplomats - the five departments of the Royal Institute of Magic an apprentice must master to become a full member.

Ben Greenwood has no idea what to expect when he begins his apprenticeship, but he quickly realizes his family history is going to make life difficult. On his very first day, a Shadowseeker - a mysterious and dangerous dark elf - surfaces, and Ben suspects the dark elves might be trying to capture him again in an effort to flush out his parents.

When Ben renews his own search for his parents, he soon discovers they are closing in on a piece of Queen Elizabeth's legendary armor - the only weapon strong enough to defeat the dark elf king once and for all - but it is guarded by something even more deadly than a Shadowseeker.

A race against time ensues, with Ben desperate to warn his parents they're walking into a death trap, while somehow completing the first level of his apprenticeship and securing his place at the Royal Institute of Magic.

I really liked the first book in this series, but the second one was even better and I am looking forward to the next one.

Written to be a sieres of books, not my preference

Book 1 laid out a good story that left the reader hungry for the conclusion (book 2). After hearing this book (#2) it is clear that 5 or more books will be written before this series concludes. I'm not that patient and the story telling is not that stellar. Just my personal opinion.

This is one of the best young fantasy series I've read in a long time. Narrator does a great acting job. Would definitely want to hear more from him.

Great series.

This book series is so engrossing I'm completely addicted. Sadly, while looking for a release date for book 3, I found out the author died of cancer in November while writing the final book, book 6. They are finishing it with another author. I hope they do the series justice. Looking forward to book 3 as this narrator is one of the best I've heard and the story is compelling. Sad that such a talented author had to die so young.

A Touch of Magic, a Touch of Genius

This series takes a bit here and a bit there and creates a wholly new world that feels both surprising and at the same time wholly familiar.

With the superb writing and the stellar narration, this series weaves a story that you will not want to turn away from.
