    Did a 10yr old write this Dear potential reader,Please allow me save you some time and let you know that this story is horrid and has absolutely NO redeeming qualities Please move onto the next book on your list and spare yourself the agony of trying to read this worthless piece of literature using the term literature loosely as I have read intriguing plots in truck stop bathrooms If you wish to know specifically why this book was so bad, please feel free to continue reading, but stopping now and moving on to something worth your time is advisable.You re still here Okay, let s begin then First, let me state that despite my headline I know that a grown man wrote this I had to make sure since it sounds like the ramblings of a 6th grade boy, so I did some research and found out that he is in fact a grown man That being said, he should be ashamed of himself for putting this out there and actually charging money for it It s obvious that he has decided to self publish because he couldn t get any self respecting agent to represent it, then went off to a review shop and paid for a bunch of positive reviews in order to sucker poor readers into purchasing this trash Shameful I purchased this book on my kindle after reading a lot of really great reviews for this There were a lot of references saying this was a great book for those that liked Hunger Games or Harry Potter and how it was a good, fun read Those people are either liars, fools, or were paid massive amounts of money.After downloading it I was eager to start reading It started slow with hunting a wild boar in the jungle, which confuses me since we later find out that the city in which they live is in the desert Then again, the writer seems to think that it s okay to have a city in the desert but have vines growing everywhere I used to live near a desert and never saw a vine or a boar for that matter anywhere near there.I tried to not let these little details interfere with my suspension of disbelief and continued on with the story So we go from a mediocre hunting trip to Mara getting hurt Mara, as it turns out, is thirteen just like our hero Talis and the granddaughter of the king She is allowed to go hunting boars with another thirteen year old without any guards, or anything I find this unlikely, but sure, why not Inevitably she gets injured and nearly killed and when her mother finds out she s furious She blames Talis and tells him to never come back.Skip ahead and we re at the town market place where Talis meets another kid that he is supposed to fight for the Blood Dagger a really important championship fight that is the very next day This waddling fat kid he meets is one of the champions of the arena and a master swordsman They exchange a few words and the fat kid pulls down his pants and blows a smokey fart at Talis which is grosswho writes that sort of thing I don t know about anyone else, but if someone did that to me I would have given them a steel enema with my sword Talis, being the helpless wimp that he is, breathes it in, laughs it off and happily goes home where he meets Mara who is now miraculously healed and ready for the tournament tomorrow.Mara tells him that she has just found out that her parents are going to make her marry some thirty year old, fat, baron next year you remember she s only thirteen, right Talis doesn t seem to care but she drags him with her to pray to the god of losers for help They make a pinky swear to win the tournament the next day so Mara doesn t have to get hitched to fat thirty year old baron.Then we come to the Big Event, the fight for the Blood Dagger ooo, aahhhh, gasp We need to back up real quick and emphasize how important this apparently is Holding the Blood Dagger brings a lot of honor to the families that hold it The competition is held once a year and while there is no magic allowed too bad since child mages are the ones fighting in it , weapons are allowed and people can be killed as demonstrated as how it was said three times that in previous matches Rikar cut off some kids head If Talis Mara wins then Talis daddy will finally love him than his dead older brother and Mara won t have to be the victim of pedophilia at the hands of some old baron.Their rivals also thirteen year olds as far as I can tell are master magicians neither Mara or Talis can so much as pick their noses with magic but this is a melee battle so they are on equal ground in this respect Well, equal except for the fact that the other two kids are apparently master swordsmen in addition to mages even the fat kidbut let s not point that out.So, they have this Epic battle between children, to the possible death and while all the contenders arrive there are no spectators mentioned There don t seem to be any fans to watch the fight, no parents to root for their kids, not even the people that organize the matches The only ones there are the kids, a single healer who only seems to be interested in eating his nachos or something and one referee.Not only that, but the only ones in this competition are the champions and Talis Mara There are no other kids trying to compete for the dagger I guess the parents of those kids have sense than to let their children fight to the death over a silly dagger that really doesn t get you anything I would have at least expected some discussion about spectators People love to watch a good fight Even if it s between kids if a fight breaks out people will flock to it like moths to a flame.Let s forget all logic as it pertains to huge important competitive events think Superbowl and focus on what actually happens The fight spans a couple pages and consists of some awkward attacks made by our heroes that get easily deflected by the bad kids Mara gets knocked down and injured again but is able to keep fighting and then Talis basically stumbles on Rikar and cuts him on the hip The wound sounds trivial but Rikar is somehow unable to fight any so Talis Mara win Yay Let s also forget the fact that they have one opponent that is still standing and can fight just fine the waddling fat kid Rikar is down and they get the blood dagger Everyone can go home happy At this point I just had to put this book down Everything in this book up to this point is ludicrous Scenes change instantly without any transition You go from outside the city, to inside, then to a temple, and then to some weird restaurant where the waitress hates Mara for no apparent reason People s actions make no sense whatsoever except as filler and a convenient way to move the story or lack thereof along.I attempted to read this book 5 6 times over the last month, thinking that I could trudge my way through it but by the end of chapter six I gave up The story is difficult at best to follow and is impossible to believe in The main character Talis is shallow and cowardly The infrastructure of the civilization, culture, gods and magic make no sense and there isn t enough detail in this story to fill a hat.I m done with this author and fully intend to do my best to warn others of his under handed tactics in trying to market this crap Don t get me wrong, I have nothing against self published books There are a LOT of really great ones out therethis just isn t one of them.However, I expect that a self published book be put through at least some rigorous editing and test reading before it s thrown out into the public There is a reason why traditionally published books sell so well and that s because of the stringent level of proof reading they go through before they see the light of day This book hasn t benefited from any of that.I do hope this helps other readers keep from wasting time on this nonsense If you do decide to read it, I wish you the best of luck.

    I m a little conflicted about how to rate this book If I were to rate it solely on how much I enjoyed the action, the world building and the character development, I d probably give it a solid four stars But I honestly can t recommend this book on its own to anyone, without at least warning them that the book is in no way complete When I got to the end of the final chapter of this book to discover that it was not a full novel but rather just stopped somewhere in the middle of the plot line that had been laid out for us, I actually found myself angry, disappointed and, to be honest, as though I d been defrauded This book, while quite enjoyable, was actually little than what I would normally consider to constitute the first few chapters of any comparable fantasy fiction Moreover, it cannot be considered truly even the first part of a series e.g., a trilogy , because it is in fact not independently complete it is, rather, the first part of a story that ends just as the characters reach a mid point in their journey with no independent denouement There s not even the emotional charge of a cliff hanger Rather, the characters have some adventures along the way as they journey to an inn, purchase passage on a ship, and board the ship and then the book ends It would be like purchasing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and having the book conclude with Edmund walking through the wardrobe, or starting The Wizard of Oz only to have the final chapter end with Dorothy setting out on the yellow brick road.I m grateful, at least, that I paid very little for the book, but the fact that it was written and or published in such a way that one essentially would have to buy the next in order to progress the storyline laid out in the first chapter makes me reluctant to throw good money after bad How am I to know, for example, whether that next book might not also end just a little further along in the middle of the story, requiring me to then purchase a third, a fourth or a fifth before reaching any kind of conclusion I m distrustful enough of this author and his tactics now to decide, no matter how much I enjoyed the story and the protagonists, that I won t be spending any money on this series And that s a shame, because up until the last page and the resulting sense that I d just been cheated, I had been very thoroughly engrossed I wonder if that s why I m so harsh and so unforgiving about the resulting disappointment, that it was so good that it felt like some kind of actual betrayal to have it end or not end, in this case so distressingly poorly, amateurishly or, perhaps even worse, seemingly so blatantly for purely commercial rather than literary reasons.

    I gave up after the 5th chapter Too many things just don t make sense The character development is terrible For info on why, see Inigo Montoya s detailed comments which I totally agree with It feels like it was written by a kid or someone with no writing experience at all.

    Childish, simplisticChildish, simplisticno real redeeming features I had to skim to finish italways hoping it would improvebut it didn t avoid this one.

    Fire Mage is a fast paced, action packed light read I devoured it very quickly and was glued to the pages I thoroughly enjoyed reading Fire Mage, I only wished it was longer.The story follows Talis Storm and his best friend Mara Their parents aren t on the greatest of terms and it has an impact on their friendship When the pair go hunting together and Mara is seriously hurt, her parents put a ban on them seeing each other.Mara finally recovers from her injury One night the city of Naru becomes under attack by the Jiserian Empire With their dark sorcery, they nearly destroy the city Talis and Mara stumble upon a secret map in the crypts of the temple.They bring the map to the elders of the city, they think it is The Gods way of trying to save them They pack Talis off with a small army, to find out Where the map leads They set out on horseback, Talis soon discovers that Mara is with them in disguise Rikar and Nikulo are also with them, they don t get along with Talis, they seem to look down on him all the time Talis still can t do magic, he has been training, like the others. When he eventually does magic for the first time, it is so dangerously powerful it s scary On their travels they are attacked by the Jiserian dead, controlled by necromancers Talis,Mara, Rikar and Nikulo survive the attack, but that s all there is left of their army.They meet two sisters and their father and agree to travel with them a short distance They stop for a while in a little village to get out of a raging storm Very strange things happen that night Talis discovers that someone travelling with them is not all they seem.The ending of the book, I was not expecting It left me dying to know what is going to happen to this brave little group, who are in terrible danger.This book is very well written and to the point Some of the characters are dark and mysterious and some are brave and courageous, a perfect mix I cannot wait to read what is coming up next in the amazing Blacklight Chronicles.A special thanks to John Forrester for sending me over a review copy.My favourite character has to be Mara, she is fearless, speaks her mind, and would would fight to the death for her best friend Talis and vice versa.

    This was lack luster I just couldn t care about any of the characters The world building was just a bunch of name dropping that had no interesting stories behind it If they do, they may come later in the series, but I won t be finding out It seemed like the plot was only to get to the fighting, which I found a bit boring Something about it reminded of a role playing game As if someone wanted to run a game but had no players I understand wanting to try to keep the reader s interest with action, but with no character development and weak world building, there s no depth and little to hold my interest And ending the book as if the whole book had been cut in half just seemed cheap It s like the author was trying too hard to make the reader want to continue with the series I was a bit relieved that it was over so quickly.


  7. says:

    This early teens epic fantasy novel has no ending Maybe I m just old school here, but I still believe each book in a series should have its own arc beginning, middle, and ending within the bigger arc that covers the series itself Not every question must or should be answered in the first book, nor every loose end tied up, but enough should be to give the book a proper conclusion This one doesn t do that, leaving me without that satisfied feeling after turning the last page Or as some reviewers put it, feeling cheated.


  8. says:

    1 star.Ridiculous plot even for fantasy genre with weak and unlikeable characters.I wouldn t recommend even though it is free.


  9. says:
