This was a very good book but it focused on character developement way too much. All the action took place in the last 100 pages (out of 642) and the book ended in a cliffhanger. The last sentence of the book was "This story will be concluded on the Awakened Mage"



To be honnest this pissed me off. You see, when I read a 600 page book I expect it to have a conclusion even if it is part of a series. I don't need it to be the end but at least some kind of resolution. Since most authors can do it in a 2 page short story i don't think it's unreasonable to expect it in a book.

If this book wasn't stand alone it should have been named something like "The innocent mage part 1" or something similar. Now I'll have to wait 10 days until the "awakened mage" copy comes into my hands. Thanks a lot Ms. Miller...



That's the main reason I gave it 3/5 stars.

It's too bad because, while the book started really, really slowly, It was the first time since Sauron's youth that I found a vilain that was actualy clever. All the other ones so far were powerful but not devious. I hope the next part is a fitting end to the story.

Nothing much HAPPENED in the whole first 3/4s of the book. It picked up toward the end, and I'm intrigued to see what will happen in book 2. ( )

I really enjoyed this book.

Asher is what you often find in fantasy - the ordinary boy destined for a Greatness. But I really liked him. He is smart, loyal, honest and bad tempered.

Gar is the prince. Gar realizes that Asher is exactly the person he needs. Someone who will be honest with him. Asher is not intimidated by the fact that Gar is a prince. Asher also doesn't look down on Gar because he has no magic. Gar is Doranen and Doranens do magic, but Gar cannot. Because of that he cannot be the next king and weather worker. His parents have his sister to be the heir. His parents have to get special permission to have a second child because the law is the King or Queen can only have on to prevent the devastation that happened in their history when the King's children fought for control. I found Gar a fascinating character. Viewed by many Doranens as a cripple he works hard for their Olken subjects who have no magic (or do they?) You get inside his head and his feelings. ( )

There are 2 races in a land cutoff from the rest off the world, for its own protection. A fisherman from the lower caste race becomes the trusted advisor to the Prince, a higher caste race. Their adventures that draw them together and tear them apart. The King keeps the wall of protection up, but its cost is in his blood. This book ends with the king dying and the evil ruler from the outside world taking over the royal magician and turning the prince against his advisor.

I really enjoyed this. The writing just drew me in. The dialogue was clever without being shallow, the problems were big without being pretentious and the characters were very real. I look forward to reading more by Miller. ( )
