Publisher's Summary

It has been 1,200 years since the demons and their allies destroyed the last zdrell master, the only kind of wizard who could challenge their mastery of the world. Master Silurian, though not a zdrell master himself, has been fighting demon magic all his considerable life and hoping against hope that a new zdrell master would enter the world.

Now as the demons and their wizards are nearly ready take over the continent and cement their hold over the entire human race, Jonny is discovered by Silurian, a boy, who untutored is able to manipulate magic like the zdrell masters of old. Can Silurian train this boy and keep him alive long enough for him to become a new zdrell master before the demons sweep the continent and gain control of the entire world?

Good book. 👍

The book was very good. I would like to learn more about the school Jonny went to and the history of the lands, the wars, the magic of Zdrell, etc. A lot of time was spent on the main character and I was wanting to learn more about the outside world, as well. I enjoyed a more structured approach to magic, as well. Things didn't just exist or happen for no reason. Vague excuses weren't made to explain things, either. Overall, I enjoyed the book and I'll be eagerly waiting for the second to come out. 👍

Great Fantasy World Building

The magic of the world the author has created is very interesting to learn about. I would've liked to see a more prominent and recurring presence of a formidable antagonist, but learning the lore and rules of this world makes me look forward to a sequel all the same.
