Danny Firoth is a middle school student in the 8th grade, struggling with the common stressors plaguing a boy of his age: bullies, homework and his mother. Sabrina Drake, the new girl, is beautiful but she harbors a fantastic secret. "You're... You're a dragon!" Danny exclaims at the beginning of their epic journey. "I am a drake," Sabrina corrects him, after a fierce battle with an ancient Shadow. Danny learns that a simple card game, designed to pit the forces of the Light against those of the Dark, is more than simply a game. Accepted into a school for young Squires, destined to become Knights of the Light and battle the forces of the Dark with magical weapons called Bondeds, Danny and his friends are trained in the techniques of blade work and educated by a colorful assortment of professors. But there is a traitor in the Order of Light, and now Danny and his friends must use their new powers to try and save themselves and each other.

I found this book through Amazon, apparently a few days after the author made it free. I didn't really have any real expectations other than reading some of the reviews, which seemed to be a bit sporadic in thier opinions. The over all theme that seemed to come from the reviews was that Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight reportedly started slow, but ended up picking up after a few chapters as well as some indication that the said work was overly descriptive. However, perhaps it's just my opinion, well, it is my opinion, just as it is the opinion of everyone else who has felt the need to comment on this work, but, in any case, I truly enjoyed it. I found the descriptive theme of the book refreshing. The world building was well done, Fife has a way of describing the events, actions, and scenery in a way that truly puts you there. I found myself truly captivated and as such, I am invested in purchasing and reading the second in the series, Light & Dark: The Blacck Bonded, which is apparently now available.
I recently bought Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight after receiving an email that it had become recently free. I must say that I was not disappointed. If I would have known about this book before it had become free, I must assuredly would have paid for it. Which in fact I have and will purchase the print version of the work. I'm one that is more for tangible reading then electronic. In any case, Light & Dark does an amazing job detailing the surroundings as well as the characters in the book. I enjoyed each distinct personality that populated the pages as I read it. The book was a smooth read, not like some others in which you feel like you kind of have to grind through the book just to get to the good parts. The author took the time to write in smooth transitions between scenes, places, and dialogue. I have already purchased the second book in the series, Light & Dark: The Black Bonded and if this book was any indication, I expect great things.
