    Amazing book!

    I bought this book hoping it would remind me of the Inheritance Cycle, and be able to help with the wait for the last book. And it sure delivered!

    Aron of Brailing lives a quiet life with his rather large family. He has been declared 'Quiet', so he has no need of training for any special powers or legacies he might possess. All he hopes is to someday work with animals.
    This all changes the day professional assassins arrive at his home and Harvest him, taking him away to become one of them, a member of the Stone Guild.
    Aron is apprenticed to Stormbreaker, a man who has an amazing legacy: to control thunder and lightning. At first, Aron struggles against his new path in life, but soon comes to accept it.
    However, the land of Eyrie is not doing well. Someone has been killing off all the heirs to the throne, and, without anybody to rule once the actual ruler has passed, war has broken out.
    Aron soon discovers that his whole family has been murdered, and, he also has an amazingly strong legacy, one of the most powerful in the land. Aron must learn to harness his power, learn to become a professional killer, and deal with his grief in order to not only save himself, but be able to get the revenge he so dearly wants.

    This was a fantastic book. It had a lot of action, adventure, and magic. I couldn't stop reading it until I finished it, and once I had, I had to grab the second book in the series: 'A Prince Among Killers'.

    LET ME HEAR A "WOO WOO!"

    I really REALLY liked this book, I thought the storyline was incredibly creative and still believable. People in the real world believe in auras and the like, and people learn to fight and kill in the real world though not like that in America that I know of. The characters were well put together and likeable. I, personally, liked that there were multiple races because most books have one person of different race and that's about it. I also liked that they were able to bring griffins into the mix without trouble. S R Vaught is an amazing writer, and I am really glad that I read this after part II came out so I was able to jump from this book to the next!
    I hope S.R. Vaught writes more in the funture and that this review was what was needed! Ciao! ~OoglyBoogly

    Pretty good!

    The summary for this book doesn't give it justice. I bought the book and read it in about two days. If you start reading this, you just can't stop. You fall in love with the characters so fast and really understand them as well. I picked up this book looking for something different. Well, I got something different and better. Kudos to the author!

    Really good book

    I really injoyed this book. It took me a couple days to get into the book though. Not because its not a good just personal reasons. This book has a lot about honor, hard work, and family. It had almost everything action, detail, romance, friendship. It was a great book.

    Reviewed by Joan Stradling for TeensReadToo.com

    Aron of Brailing dreams of raising animals, but his dreams are shattered when he is "harvested" by the Stone Guild and forced to become an assassin's apprentice. Unfortunately, someone would rather see Aron dead.

    Forced to train with his strange new master, Stormbreaker, and an even stranger young woman named Dari, Aron must learn to control his powerful legacy or meet certain death. Aron isn't sure what lies ahead, but he's determined to face it with all the strength and determination he possesses.

    Hopefully, it will be enough to keep him alive long enough to complete his training.

    The characters and world are compelling and thrilling as all good fantasy should be. It was easy to connect with the characters and the pacing was perfect, with enough action and adventure to keep me turning pages as fast as my eyes could take them in.

    I loved reading ASSASSIN'S APPRENTICE and am very much looking forward to volume two, A PRINCE AMONG KILLERS. Especially since volume one has an amazing cliffhanger ending.
