Product Description

Product Description

For centuries, mages perfected magic at the Order of the Dawn. Mastery over fire, wind, and storm. They live in the last free city in a world plagued by dark sorcerers. Talis Storm and friend Mara discover a terrible secret. The Jiserian Empire has targeted their city for attack. An army of undead soldiers. Flying necromancers. None have ever survived.

When a surprise aerial invasion hits the Order’s temple, Talis casts fire magic for the first time. But his spell is wild and does more harm than good. Sorcerers try to capture Talis and Mara and they flee into the temple crypts. Awoken from an ancient rest, a fallen champion slays the sorcerers and gives Talis a legendary map. The map leads them on a quest to discover the lost temple of the sun.

To save his city, Talis must discover the power of magic locked away inside the ancient temple. And become a true fire mage.

Theft of Dragons & Lord of Dragons, part of a new fantasy series, is now available.

I had a hard time rating this book.
I've heard people say it's a kids book and so it shouldn't be held to higher standards, but after looking at it again I have to say that this book is a little lacking.

It has amazing potential, but it's a little frantic at times. You're introduced to characters and then things are thrown at you left right and center while the book proceeds at breakneck speeds.
Now that isn't necessarily a bad thing, but in this book I can't help but think it could have benefited from slowing down and spending time explaining certain details out.

By the end of the book I knew of four characters, barely then, and the rest of the world was a whirlwind of details that were thrown at you quickly before being ignored or made largely irrelevant.
There is much adeu made about a contest in which the winner is granted possession of a Dagger which is seemly a big deal.

The main characters are listed as being in the contest but it's never really explained why the contest is so important, and far more strange is that the only people who are known to be in it are the two primary characters and their opponents. There's no indication that there were additional round, or contestants, or even how long the contest went.

Things like this are through the entire book. We either learn nothing about it, or are given a hand wave explaination that has no bearing on the story.

And the opposition in the book seems to come in two forms, barely a threat, and an overwhelming threat.

By the end of it I didn't really know anything about the characters, I was at a loss for the world or how any of it worked, and I could easily see the "twist" that would be coming in the next book.

I see that the author has some potential in the future, but this book needs some pacing work.

Too short and no character or story development. For example (Will use general examples to avoid spoiler) the author would mention a fight is starting and next thing you know, it's done, you don't know why it started, who ended it and even what exactly happened in the fight?!? Definitely not reading the other instalments, even if it's free.

*Book courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review.*

One night the city of Naru is under attack. While hiding from the dark sorcerers of the Jiserian Empire and running for their lives, Talis and his best friend Mara uncover a secret map. The Elders of Naru send Talis and a few other guys who Talis doesn't get along with to find out where this maps leads to in order to save the city. Their journey turns out to be quite adventurous and dangerous meeting friend and enemies along the way...

Talis and Mara have been friends for a long time even though their families don't get along very well. After a hunting incident leaves Mara hurt, Talis is forbidden to see Mara again. That doesn't stop the two and Mara joins the boys on their quest in disguise. Talis doesn't get the recognition he would like from his father and hopes the quest will change that. He's also having trouble doing magic despite his training.

Fire Mage is a fast-paced, action-packed and an adventurous book perfect for young readers. My only regret is that it wasn't long enough. The writing is excellent! I couldn't put it down and read it (twice!) in one sitting. I love the friendship between Talis and Mara. When the two of them are together they seem to be unstoppable. They both seem very mature for their age. Not only will young readers love this book but adults too. I love the variety of characters some are mysterious while others are very courageous. I definitely want to read more about them and what's next on their journey. From the way Fire Mage ended, I'm sure Sun Mage (book #2) will be just as amazing.

Fire Mage is an entertaining fantasy novel that will keep you turning the pages for more. You don't want to miss it!

5 out of 5 stars!
