About the Author

Nicholas A. Rose is the author of the Ilvenworld novels. He enjoys everything to do with the sea, the outdoors and the mountains, which he finds inspirational. Nicholas also enjoys the rather more sedentary pastimes of chess, reading, real ale and, of course, writing.

There are two complete series: the "Gifted" novellas, which are a FREE introduction to my writing, and the "Markan Empire" trilogy. The first of a new trilogy, the "Flying Cloud Trilogy" was released at the end of February 2014 and work continues apace on the next two.

I hope to read more of Sallis's adventures as a bounty hunter. Very well written and it is easy to be come absorbed in the story. Even though it is short the characters are are real and their motivations understandable. The stiry is fast paced and interests you ftom the first paragraph.

I am amazed that I have not stumbled across Mister Rose's works before this. His Ilvenworld is a well thought out example of "fantasy science fiction" in which a world that appears to be fantasy actual has science fiction underpinnings. (Another example of this genre would be the "Dragon" works by Anne McCaffrey). The "Gifted" novellas tell the story of Sallis Ti Ath, a minor character in the Markan Empire novels. The characters are well-drawn and memorable and the writing draws you in completely. I heartily recommend anything written by this author.

Somewhat underdeveloped fantasy side of the story, more mystery than anything really. Set in a fantasy world the main character is something of a savant/mystic and able to solve crimes due to his gifts. Would have been interesting to see the fantasy side of the story developed further.

This was a pretty good story. However, I think it could have used a little more character development.

Absolutely fantastic!!!! Best I have read in a long time. Thrilling, heart wrenching, funny, loaded with adventure.Sallis Ti Ath is an amazing character. Highly recommend as a must read. Read gifted apprentice first. It develops the character of Sallis. I would definitely like to know more about the life of Sallis.

Gifted Hunter is a sequel to Gifted Apprentice. While I didn't realize that this was a second book until it was already started, it doesn't appear that too much is overlooked by skipping over the first story other than some minor background details. This novella is about a fifteen-year-old boy named Sallis ti Ath whose predominant desire in life is to be a bounty hunter. The reader knows this because he mentions it to every single character he comes across, even multiple times when he feels the point hasn't been stressed enough. Circular and redundant dialogue hamper this average fantasy novella, detracting heavily from the story. How many times must we read about the protagonist's aspiration to become the greatest bounty hunter, his yearning for justice, the superb tracking skills he possesses, or his inclination to buy his father some sylphs (servant/slave race) to help around the farm?

2.5 stars - very little action and about as much suspense. At least it was free!

If you're browsing for a good fantasy stop here. This book is a great read. It's short but not disappointing. Check it out.

This is the continuation of the Gifted Apprentice. It continues the story of Sallis Ti Ath's development into a very skilled bounty hunter. The Gifted series is a supplemental read for the Markan series which are the main attractions by Mr. Rose. This gives the back character development of Sallis Ti Ath!
