    I have some mixed feelings about this book The story was good but I felt that the execution could have been done a little differently I read a lot of YA and this definitely felt very young to me My main issues are with the characters There were so many females in the story which isn't a bad thing in itself They all felt very flat and I found myself confused as to who was who several times Our main character was such a flirt I didn't like his interactions with all the girls I'm not uptight but sleeping in a bed with two different girls even innocently made me not want to like him I did however really like that there was some humor to the story I like when fantasy can bring some humor into it in the right way I did enjoy this book despite some minor issues I would like to check out the next book at some point I was provided this audiobook in exchange for an honest review

    Final word on this one would have to be mehLets get to the good thing first After two weeks of not touching any book at all it got me back into reading and I could finnish it in one afternoon straight It was entertaining enough to keep me reading so it's by all means not a terrible bookHoweverFew cases in point about what I really didn't likeKnow your craft Persepctive The book features PoV characters but sometimes in the middle of scenes I found myself jumping heads suddenly knowing and experiencing the emotions of a person who's not actually the PoV figure Never a good thingThe Hero He's too good Like he's nice and gentle a bit cheeky but never overly so and would rather be a mage than a warrior but of course he has great physical prowess as well and could have easily chosen the path of a warrior He never gets into trouble apart from being scolded by his teacher for trying out dangerous stuff without fair warning Which has no conseuences whatsoever because someone will come and safe the day by making the others see how special he is He has one considerable weakness though over the course of book 1 at least that does not really turn into any kind of obstacle whatsoever Everything new he tries he learns fast and without extra instruction One serious lack in his knowledge is adressed several times he is told to catch up on it then it's kind of forgotten and we never learn what the benefit of it really is because uite frankly he seems to do splendidly without it Insta Friendships Relationships do not build here They drop Like Basen meets his new room mate and a page later he talks about having won a friend because they had some friendly small talk This is not how friendship works in my bookAlso it seems like a bit of a Mary Sueish trip There are a hell of a lot of women characters Brownie points for that since they are than mere decoration and Basen gets physically close to all of them though in a non erotic way mostly sleeps in the same bed with two of them both scenes totally innocent even though he confirmed before that in one case the girl was wearing nothing under her night gown and having a clear romantic inclination that is returned and also kinda developed over one or two dates towards a third ladyWhile some of the ladies have relationships they always flirt with him and constant mention is made of his good looks and how he could have any girl he wanted Actual flirtingromantic scenes read clumsy to silly Additonal minus point for permanent mention of how beautiful everyone is Last thing to mention I did not click with any of the characters All of them remain fairly flat and none is exceptionally likeable Towards at least half of them I was harbouring a lot of suspicion because of the way they were written Character deaths didn't touch me at all I just read over them which is a telltale sign that I just couldn't bring myself to careWill read the second book still because there are a few plotpoints I am curious about so I guess that's a plus as well However I have to admit that I would not spend money on the books Reading them through my free trial of Kindle Unlimited atm otherwise I wouldn't even have picked up the first

    Interesting story but the writing style was somewhat immature

    This reminded me of The Name of the Wind with elements of a who dunnit It resembles NotW in that the characters are in a magic academy I actually liked this because right from the start you know this is a school fantasy book NotW threw me a bit in that regard The story was good I liked the mystery element and there was a decent cast but another edit was reuiredPros1 A strong female character in Sonya Some woman empowerment stuff I didn't care for but you might like2 Interesting mystery stuff Someone gets killed and we need to figure out who3 Interesting magic system with good names Bastial sounds so cool4 Cleave mmm 3 Too bad he was already in a relationship5 I liked how the author explained the political situation without spending a 100 pages on exposition He attempted to work it casually into conversation and although one can tell what he's doing I did appreciate that he tried to make it less tedious than it otherwise usually is6 While they are searching for a murderer things escalate politically Let's just put it this way there's a big battle towards the end7 Fight scenes were pretty good Loved the warrior training The mages fight with wands ugh Not my favourite I'm of a staff girl myself P You can use it like a uarterstaff What can you do with a wand? Poke someone in the eye and run awayCons1 No one likes it when the main character is handsome and good at everything view spoiler Being bad at meditation doesn't count since it didn't matter hide spoiler

    The first great war of Ovira is over and the most hated king in centuries is dead but his nephew still lives However Basen had nothing to do with the destructive war his uncle started In fact it was his uncle who exiled him and his father to the territory of their enemies where Basen's dreams of becoming a legendary mage now fade as he must work all day just to eat His only chance at regaining some semblance of the life he thought he would lead is to join an elite school that trains houses and feeds a thousand new young men and women each year But little does Basen know that his determination will put him at the center of a war even bloodier than the one he'd barely managed to avoid Battles good murder escape castle intrigue and a twist that has not been in other stories No spoilers here So the moral dilemma is going to be resolved Just about when I thought there was an answer the story ended I really like this author and his style of writing Basen is not that strong of a leader as his character is flawed and makes him endearing and life like Effie and the potion she took added a human look at feelingshow we are affected by them There is alot to the story I sat down to read this book and couldn't put it down I read it in one sitting Great reading everyone

    First this book was given to me for free in exchange for a reviewThe characters in this book are young; but that is in fact how most people in armies are They seem to be very mature at times and at times not so muchThe story line was not deep but did a good job of displaying the issues that were to be handled by the characters Many of the obstacles were overcome far too easy for the environment but it did keep the story from getting bogged down in detailsI thought this book was going to be at a too young level for me; but was surprised that I actually enjoyed it and wanted to listen to the entire book rather than stopThere was no one favorite scene There were several that gave a mild uplift as the characters discovered things about themselves The most amusing issues were the main character and his unreuited love; yet all the women who want to crawl into his bed for courage and comfortI felt the narrator had an issue at the beginning of the book but after getting into the first few chapters he either got with the book or I got used to his narration Long before the end of the book I found his narration to be a pleasure to listen to

    325 starsThis one surprised me I didn't expect much because I haven't had piles of luck with high fantasy through kindle unlimited I didn't even think I'd be likely to read past the 50 page mark when I downloaded it to check it out But the characters were interesting and the plot pulled me along As fantasy goes this is pretty scant on worldbuilding but the characters and plot move it along The drawback is that the author brags about releasing 6 books a year What he's actually releasing is apparently one book a year carved into six parts I had my reading progress switched off so it was a complete surprise when the book just ended It just stopped I swapped it out for book two and that one carries on right away I am very unhappy about that


  8. Michael woods Michael woods says:

    I was a little unsure about this book because I had never heard of the series or the author before and I didn't think it would be any good but I was completely wrong When I started to listen I couldn't stop and when I did stop I tried to find time to listen to it again This book is full of brilliantly written characters and an absorbing storyline that once you start you don't want to stop There is humour action tension and magic If you love your fantasy reads to have all these then this is the book for you I cannot wait to readlisten to the next book in the series I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review

    I liked the book and the story it tells but it had it downsides that stops me from giving it starsThe main issue I had was with the POV's in this book One moment you are reading the books form one characters POV and then suddenly there is a change in the perspective without any indication there has been a change leaving you wondering what just happened why is the character suddenly thinking like this? And just when you get accustomed to the change there will be suddenly another switchNever the less I enjoyed the book and will defiantly be reading the next


  10. Bill Johnston Bill Johnston says:

    I am now on the second book in the series and have found it to be entertaining It reads a bit like it is targeting a younger audience early teen so I have to keep reminding myself that the characters are a bit older than that The magic system is innovative and the story deviates nicely from the cookie cutter format it does not shock with sudden twists but it flows well
