I started this book thinking I was going to have to wade through 85 pages of mediocrity. That, after reading the book, I would have thought "Well, at least they tried." When I picked up this book I couldn't put it back down! In the beginning, you're as confused as poor seven year-old Brenen is when a wizard picks him to be his apprentice. You don't know what's going on, where he is, or even how magic works in thier world. But, as the book goes on, you really start to cheer Brenen on and you can see his growth in both knowledge and character really well. The details about the magic of this world is very intriguing, I would love to see more of it. Unfortunately, in this book, you don't get to know much about the rest of the world Brenen lives in. Other then a few odd details here and there. What you do hear makes me all the more interested in the series. I am hoping to find out more when I (most definetly) pick up the sequel, 'Journeyman'. I definetly recommend this short story for any fantasy lovers who like astronomy and fine details in the magic they read about. A wonderful read!
