Publisher's Summary

Nothing will be as it was. Cities will crumble to ash. Ashen wastes will become lush and fertile. Rulers will serve, and servants will rule.
Pentamuria, the world of five kingdoms, is in a time of change. The power of the nobles and mages is threatened. War is upon them, although they do not know yet when or with whom. Thus, the mages are gathering in their capital, Ringwall, to prepare together against any possible enemy.
At this time, the orphan boy Nill is found by the Druids. He possesses considerable magical skills. So he is taken to Ringwall, where he is to be trained in the magical arts alongside his fellow students. Nill, who is an outsider, shows no respect for the traditions of the magical world, and challenges the ways of the mages.
Soon this mages start to ask themselves: Could this powerful stranger bring the foretold end of their reign?
If yes, Nill has to be dealt with. By whatever means....

Not for everyone<br />

I truly enjoyed the way this story is told and how it meanders. while many people will like this book, it isdnt for everyone. I find it to be something aimed at the Sci-fi crowd. That being said, not giving it a try would be a shame.

Much too long for the story distance traveled

The author was skilled in his prose and the narrator in his telling and even the story itself was a rather unique take on a Fantasy epic. The book itself fit comfortably into a coming-of-age category, what with the protagonist and his two side-kicks being in their early teens. Also, each of the teens were interestingly unique in terms of their backgrounds. One being something of a half-breed (mixture of mage and mundane parents), another being of witch magic and the protagonist being odd but known to possess some form of unknown power.

During the telling, I was initially impressed with the time the author took to carefully and slowly have the trio exhibit their abilities; along with providing an abundance of detail of the world and places they visited. This started to become tedious, bordering on didactic, about a quarter of the way through and continued throughout the novel. So much so, that much more time was spent on explaining the intricacies of surrounding (buildings, wall, fauna, etc) than moving the story along.

So it was that this book, while not badly written, was one that I wasn't disappointed at finally coming to the end.

I will not continue on with the saga.

Different and interesting

love the narrator, listen to him a lot. the story feels to have a somewhat predictable plot but with enough differences to keep your interest.
