    2. An excellent tale steeped in magic, with wonderful characters that bring alive the story.The Guardian s Apprentice is very well written and draws in the reader from the first and has all the ingredients that make for successful fantasy novels.I m very glad I won this story, for I enjoyed its atmosphere and telling with great relish.


    3. J M Radcliffe s self published novel, The Guardian s Apprentice is the story of a middle aged guy finding out he s a wizard This is no Harry Potter though, Keegan s education in the world of magic beyond the Veil is a trial by fire Three trials by fire to be exact This is an action packed magical adventure complete with dragons, snarky cats, talking ravens and dark mystery.All in all this is a very solid fantasy The world is well developed and we re quickly introduced to it through the trials an [...]

    5. I give this book a 4, almost a 4 , but I m sticking with a 4 Keegan Whitestone just found out he is descendent from wizards, which he thinks is a horrible thing, but he soon realizes that it s just a part of life and he needs to suck it up Besides, it s not like his old life was all that great anyway This is classic high fantasy and I like it The reasons I didn t give this a higher rating are 1 Keegan is a little annoying throughout the whole book I grew to like him as the story progressed, but [...]

    7. Great fantasy story with a wide variety of characters that are easily connected with Radcliffe has created a world that co exists with ours, but we are completely unaware of Punishments for misdeeds are unique The world was described well enough that I was able to immerse myself into it It has a rather slow pace to it, but once you have been introduced informed the action picks up So many of the characters I have been rooting for or against can t wait to see what happens in the next book.


    8. I thoroughly enjoyed the magical world Radcliffe created here The characters are all unique and well developed We have a little bit of everything, from humans with magical powers to dragons and trolls The world they inhabit is mysterious, fun, and dangerous The story concept is fascinating I found myself asking, What if After all, just because we can t see it doesn t mean it doesn t exist


    9. What an immense and brillant story I loved all the magic and spell binding storyline to how a normal human is really a wizard.
