Apprentice Swordceror (Blademage Saga, #1)
Chris Hollaway

Apprentice Swordceror, Volume I of the Blademage Saga, is a debut novel that tells the story of a young man trapped between the separate and incompatible worlds of Wizards and Warriors. The main character, Kevon, is easily identified with, possessing the raw talent we all wish we had, and the naiveté we hope we lack. His journey through betrayal, love, loss, and personal growth is accentuated by the friends and allies that he comes to surround himself with. The story will appeal to classic fantasy fans, while the different angles on magic and standard fantastical races will satisfy those who need something different than the usual fare.

Kevon begins his story as a Wizard’s Apprentice in a small town, far from anywhere important. He finds himself thrown out into the world, sorely unprepared. Forced to hide his identity to survive, he journeys across the Realm searching for vengeance and redemption.

Apprentice Swordceror (Blademage Saga, #1) book cover

A fascinating look into a world where swords and sorcery never mix, until now. Our hero is no Manning’s Mordecai and still less a Kvothe and yet compellingly I read this to the end, as it wasn’t too long and went in a few interesting directions. A recognisably amateur effort, but with potential indeed.
