Publisher's Summary

Opposites attack!
When the Magelord Minalan, the Spellmonger's two apprentices, Tyndal and Rondal, were knighted after the battle of Timberwatch, they were dubbed Knights Magi: a new class of nobility for distinguished High Magi. Designed to combine the pursuit of arcane knowledge with the noble aspirations of chivalry, it elevated them above common warmage...in theory. The problem was they had no idea how to be a Knight Mage...because no one had ever been one before. And as a couple of half-trained rustic apprentices from the Mindens they did not feel up to the task or the high ideals of their title.
But Master Minalan the Spellmonger decided to cure that ignorance. He arranges for Tyndal and Rondal to be tutored and trained together in their new vocation, learning the arts of magic, the craft of warfare, and the subtleties of chivalry from the finest masters in the kingdom.
If they didn't kill each other, first.
The two young spellmonger's apprentices from the Minden mountain domain of Boval Vale have much in common: both had their homes destroyed, they were both sent into exile by the goblin invasion, and they both serve the same master. Yet they could not be more different.
Rondal is quiet, bookish, and introspective, dedicated to the disciplines of academic magic and anticipating a future of study, service, and, perhaps, romance. Tyndal is bold and brash: an extroverted over-achiever with dreams of glory, gold, and girls. Fate, circumstance, and the whims of the gods have forced them together, but the raw emotions of adolescence and the trauma of war put them at each others' throats with depressing frequency. Master Minalan can't have that, especially not in his fragile new domain with another baby on the way...so he sends them on the road.
Jealousy, anxiety, passion, and frustration conspire to make them rivals - but if they don't figure out a way to learn to work together, and quickly, then their stubborn feud could end up affecting the fate of the entire war. Along the way they pick up some enemies, gain a few allies, master a few new skills, and attempt to learn the laws of love. But as they stumble through their lessons and learn to master their tempers, they discover that the strongest bonds between men are forged by the most difficult of trials.
For after they become proficient at magic, war, and errantry, they are put to the test in the field, the most difficult of circumstances...a mission where the strength of their friendship and the quality of their honor may be what defines them best as - Knights Magi!

Interesting

A good story in the Spellmonger series but definitely not as well written or as interesting as the first three books. Stop reading if you don’t want spoilers




Honestly there are a few holes in this story that I dislike and it was a fever short book for the series I didn’t like the fact that they made tindel seem inadequate for 3/4 if the book and Rondal becomes great at fighting and command in 4 weeks while tindal has been training over a year and with sword masters and war mages in the last book honestly it’s annoying but I can see why the author went on this direction to try and even out the apprentice’s but in my opinion this wasn’t written well

More of a side book.

Almost makes me hate the boys. To them it seems that if you are a pretty girl who will sleep with them....yes both of them, then well it doesn't matter that she lied and tried to get a innocent man kill. First they were going to send her to hang, but then oh look she wants to sleep with them. Please understand I love the first 3 books but this one I am going to return.

However I wish the boys got over their issues faster. but it paid off, if slightly predictably.

average

there were a lot of things missing from this book and it didn't all link up a lot of information should have been included I really like the story line but each book is getting worse when it comes to skipping out on things
