magic is also pretty basic So we still have the mystery of his parents left Who could that possibly be looking at super evil wizard lord yep, did not see that coming at all It s not just that the story is nothing special The characters made this evenblunt and two dimensional Really everyone is an absolute stereotype We have the power hungry evil guy, the world saving main character with a good heart and incredible magical talent, a grumpy old teacher, talking about the necessity to use your powers for good, some honorable knights, and even a spoiled arrogant prince Also the dialogues felt awkward to read, but maybe that was just my opsinion because I hated the speakers.I did not care for anyone or anything that happened, I don t even know why I finished reading, but I will not continue

stronger and the plot thickens which both keep the reader glued to the pages to find out what happens next At about half way through the book I found the pace quicken and myself unable to let go I am by no means experienced with writing reviews and apologize if I don t make sense All in all I think Mr Bronny does an excellent job with this first book I think it deserves 5 stars and I cannot wait to read book 2 I dare say this is an amazing read Please bring on book 2 Finally, a good fantasy book for teens It s The Hobbit mixed with Harry Potter but set in Eragon kinda It s got great fantasy

dark past With the help of two new friends, Bridget and Leera, the trio begin the long journey of mastering the art of the arcane and trying to save the world from the iron grip of the Lord of the Legion Funny, insightful, and chock full of adventure, this story will resonate with readers I can t wait for the next installment I must know what happens I received this book for free from the author in return for my honest, unbiased opinion 2.5 Stars This is a long, harsh review because most of the other critical reviews don t go into very much depth Some points are only nitpicks, but nitpicks add up.I will say that I knew from the outset this book wouldn t fare well with me I mainly got it because 1 the author is nice, 2 it was 0.99, and 3 the author said that this series allowed him to quit his job, which had me curious about the quality I enjoy some middle grade fantasy, but from the start I knew that this book would 2.5 Stars This is a long, harsh review because most of the other critical reviews don t go into very much depth Some points are only nitpicks, but nitpicks add up.I will say that I knew from the outset this book wouldn t fare well with me I mainly got it because 1 the author is nice, 2 it was 0.99, and 3 the author said that this series allowed him to quit his job, which had me curious about the quality I enjoy some middle grade fantasy, but from the start I knew that this book would not resonate well with me Keep that in mind as you read my review.The main problem with this book is that I kept asking myself the entire time, Alright, when is the plot going to start Finally at 60% I thought the winds were changing and something interesting was happening, but no Around 80% something exciting happens talked about in the spoiler marked section below , but that exciting thing just happened to have something happen, not to further the plot The entire book I was unable to describe the characters motives We re learning magicGreat, why do I care Learning magic does not make a story, or at least not in this case.I didn t like Mrs Stone She talked multiple times about how she could only mentor someone who was kind hearted, and then she treated the kids like crap Like, b tch, you even hear yoself Some people will say that was for the good of their training, but you can work them hard and still be amiable In the end, I don t care if she s mean to them, I just hate her hypocrisy.The magic was unoriginal, which is a mark off for me others may find it enjoyable still.The prose was fine It didn t get in the way, but it wasn t particularly inspiring There were a couple mistakes that made me laugh, like one where it said ancestor instead of descendant p 124 The attempt at Early Modern English was a train wreck I canst I art Mine lord Thou hath As befits thou needs Using ye to address a single person Using mine lady wouldst in one paragraph and mine lady would in another Literally almost every time this character talked it used incorrect grammar Did absolutely no one proofread those parts of this book An orthographic nitpick The author s tendency to end speech sections with an em dash and either a question mark or exclamation point like, Found some or Mrs Stone What is the dash doing there between the word and the punctuation It s not like the speaker got cut off, that s just some weird punctuation.There was one part that outright confused me About 62% of the way through the book, Augum is trying to learn a new type of magic This was difficult to him because, It required him to connect to his inner feelings, which was like trying to find a squirrel s stash of nuts p 225 At no other point is this weakness mentioned On the contrary, he often reflects on his feelings, e.g his negative feelings of having no friends.A nitpick When fixing Sir Canes, it s described that there s blood on the bed of course , floor naturally , walls ohkay , and people what even the ones who weren t helping The procedure was to remove an arrow Now, I m no surgeon, but I highly doubt that a single arrow wound would result in blood so far spread.The author has a burning drive in himself that the story needs a slightly older boy to torment Augum and co Any time that void opens through the death of the agitator, it s only a matter of pages until it s filled by another brat Some may find this fulfilling I did not.The map is a thing that s constantly returned to Why the pieces are scattered throughout the castle isn t explained in this book at least In my estimation, it was just to serve the plot and not for any real in story purpose view spoiler Then the wolves come This really seemed shoehorned in just to have some action happen, no other reason Why did the wolves appear We don t know, and there was no foreshadowing about it One wolf gets inside because Bridget invites it in How do the other ones get in You later learn that apparently it split in two That would have been nice to know earlier And can these wolves only bite on the arm Anyway, Augum goes to the fountain and happens to have a canteen Does he always carry a canteen around with him in his domicile His palm sputtered to life, weak and still tied to the beating of his heart p 287 I can t remember any time before this it being mentioned that the shine spell is tied to heartbeats Then over dinner they debate what type of wolves they were You idiots, you have the bodies, just go look at them I feel like the fact that it can transform into little boys and split in two would narrow it down a bit Then when Mrs Stoneface gets back and they tell her she s just like, Yeah You know you all can go eff yourselves, right Then peaces.Alright, I ll concede that we later learn that the hellhounds belong to Rames, which makes sense My main issue is that there was no foreshadowing, so it really felt like nothingthan a throwaway high stakes scene hide spoiler Finally at 86%, something starts to happen with the plot A one page eavesdropped conversation between Mrs Stoneheart and Colonel Gallows The stakes are upped Real, meaningful conflict is introduced view spoiler A traitor in their midst hide spoiler This conflict is resolved in this book and isn t explored any though view spoiler So they eventually get the map together and follow it It takes them through tunnels to a villa type affair outside the castle walls Upon hearing strange voices outside, they turn to go back and, Just as Leera reached the door, it slammed shut Why Plot And the entire reason for the map was to bring them to the point where they could let the dude in After inviting him in, Rames is then able to let hellhounds in, even though only four people can invite new things into the castle What is going on With a broken arm and whatever other injuries, Augum and the gang end up around the fountain One might think they would use the healing waters, but no They wait until Mrs Stone gets there to heal them Why Also, Big Bad Lord Legion is on his way with a brace of scions, but instead of gtfo ing, they chill for a minute and Old Lady Stone gives everyone a stripe Probably should have happened on the other side of the portal hide spoiler As a redeeming trait, I will say that I genuinely enjoyed the last 10% of the book Things finally started to happen other than training and being antagonized by arrogant boys.In conclusion, the characters lacked motives and the story lacked aim Most of the conflict came from a hypocritical old woman or bratty teenage boys Even at the end, the only conflict still going is that view spoiler Lord of the Legion is after them There s never once any mention of trying to defeat him, only hiding from him andtraining hide spoiler That doesn t sound promising enough to keep reading the series At the end, I still found myself unable to answer that same question that had been burning the whole time what are the characters motives Beside view spoiler learning magic and not getting caught hide spoiler , I can t think of any, and that s just not enough to keep me interested Throw Fireballs in Arcane It all seems simple enough You say some words, wave your wand, and poof Something happens, a feather floats, or you are now at a rock in the middle of the ocean, or maybe that random fire went out This is the world of magic that almost all of us see Magic is just so easy it seems, there s really no trial and error You either get it, or you got something a little wrong, it s as easy as that In the book Arcane, Sever Bronny has a completely new take on magic, where Throw Fireballs in Arcane It all seems simple enough You say some words, wave your wand, and poof Something happens, a feather floats, or you are now at a rock in the middle of the ocean, or maybe that random fire went out This is the world of magic that almost all of us see Magic is just so easy it seems, there s really no trial and error You either get it, or you got something a little wrong, it s as easy as that In the book Arcane, Sever Bronny has a completely new take on magic, where to be able to cast multiple spells, you have to choose ones that you have practiced before, ones that don t take a lot of your energy Also don t call it magic, because it s Arcane or Arcanery Before throwing some fireballs, there are a couple of things you have to decide First off, what element do you want to attempt success in The three main characters have chosen theirs Agum has chosen lightning, Bridget has chosen the element earth, and Leera has chosen water They all have some special spells to themselves Agum can shock people with his hand, Bridget can create a sound of a massive tree breaking, and Leera can Make water glow The characters are a little similar to the ones in Harry Potter, with Augum like Harry always trying to do the right thing, Bridget like Hermione knowing everything and coming up with her own ideas, and Leera like Ron, that third wheel right up until that one moment when she shines through This book had a lot of interesting takes on magic, and various spells both taught at schools and not Almost of these spells had a spoken incantation, usually one or two odd words, and subtly came with practice The first spell that Augum learned was telekinesis, the ability to move things with your mind The way you progressed through magic was this there were 2 3 non elemental spells, and one elemental spell, depending on your element After you ve practiced these you get tested, and you either pass and get a elemental stripe, or you fail and have to retry It s a long and complicated process, but in the end it s the only way to advance through the knowledge of Arcane.This book is a great fiction fantasy book, and anyone who likes that genre would easily like this book What makes this book so good is the way the characters flourish, and the interesting take on magic I personally was engaged through the whole book Only found this book by chance, it just poped up on my facebook It s f ing amazing can t put it down It started off a little too close to comfort for me story protagonist wise I thought that it was going to be cookie cutter in terms of what the plot was, who the main character was, and what the themes were.Boy was I wrong.Not only was this a unique story with unique characters, motives, and backgrounds, it was SUPER REFRESHINGLY GOOD in terms of how majestically crafted it was.This was an amazing kick off to an incredible series, definitely one of my favorite book series ever other contenders It started off a little too close to
