Publisher's Summary

She survived a trial year at the Academy, but that was just the easy part....
Now 16-year-old Ryiah is an apprentice of Combat, her school's most notorious faction of magic. When she finishes she will be a mage, but in order to do so she has to survive four years with a training master she hates and her old nemesis, Priscilla. To make matters worse the unwanted attraction Ry feels for her sometimes-friend-sometimes-rival Prince Darren is at an all-time high - even though he is betrothed to the very girl she can't stand.
Really, the only bright spot to Ryiah's new life is the time she spends with her friends, including an older apprentice named Ian, who she finds herself thinking about quite often.
Just when things start to get comfortable they take a turn for the worse. An apprentice is killed in a rebel attack and several mages end up dead. Unwittingly, the apprentices find themselves in the midst of a budding unrest between Jerar and its northern neighbor, Caltoth. For Ryiah the impending conflict means many things, but as her apprenticeship draws to a close she finds her biggest problem at home.
Unfortunately for her, Darren's not going anywhere.

Have you ever looked over something, and you thought it was one thing and it turned out to be something else? That’s what this series is, it looks like a sword and sorcery novel but what it really is, is a romance series with elements of sword and sorcery thrown into it. Now I’m not against romance as part of the story but in a fantasy genre it shouldn’t the whole story. With that said I can’t recommend this book nor will say not to purchase this book. I say that because, it has some elements I like but not enough and sadly the main character might get on your nerves a bit, but I will let the buyer decide.
