Description

Opposites attack!

When the Magelord Minalan, the Spellmonger's two apprentices, Tyndal and Rondal, were knighted after the battle of Timberwatch, they were dubbed Knights Magi: a new class of nobility for distinguished High Magi. Designed to combine the pursuit of arcane knowledge with the noble aspirations of chivalry, it elevated them above common warmage...in theory. The problem was they had no idea how to be a Knight Mage...because no one had ever been one before. And as a couple of half-trained rustic apprentices from the Mindens they did not feel up to the task or the high ideals of their title.

But Master Minalan the Spellmonger decided to cure that ignorance. He arranges for Tyndal and Rondal to be tutored and trained together in their new vocation, learning the arts of magic, the craft of warfare, and the subtleties of chivalry from the finest masters in the kingdom.

If they didn't kill each other, first.

The two young spellmonger's apprentices from the Minden mountain domain of Boval Vale have much in common: both had their homes destroyed, they were both sent into exile by the goblin invasion, and they both serve the same master. Yet they could not be more different.

Rondal is quiet, bookish, and introspective, dedicated to the disciplines of academic magic and anticipating a future of study, service, and, perhaps, romance. Tyndal is bold and brash: an extroverted over-achiever with dreams of glory, gold, and girls. Fate, circumstance, and the whims of the gods have forced them together, but the raw emotions of adolescence and the trauma of war put them at each others' throats with depressing frequency. Master Minalan can't have that, especially not in his fragile new domain with another baby on the way...so he sends them on the road.

Jealousy, anxiety, passion, and frustration conspire to make them rivals - but if they don't figure out a way to learn to work together, and quickly, then their stubborn feud could end up affecting the fate of the entire war. Along the way they pick up some enemies, gain a few allies, master a few new skills, and attempt to learn the laws of love. But as they stumble through their lessons and learn to master their tempers, they discover that the strongest bonds between men are forged by the most difficult of trials.

For after they become proficient at magic, war, and errantry, they are put to the test in the field, the most difficult of circumstances...a mission where the strength of their friendship and the quality of their honor may be what defines them best as - Knights Magi!

Well done for a character development story

Really loved getting to see Rondal and Tindal grow into men. A lot more depth added to what just seemed supporting characters up until now. Great book!

An interesting interlude.

This book was a sort of side story. It follows the Spellmonger's apprentices as they attend magical and military schools.

Very entertaining story!

Another great story in the Spellmonger series! The writing holds your attention and the narration is of superb quality. a nice balance of continuing the story in this fantasy world while developing characters in their own plot arcs. highly reccomend for anyone who is looking for an engaging and easy to follow fantasy series.

Another Entertaining Book of The Spellmonger

The narrator is fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the Boys growing up in this one. Appreciated the time at war college in particular.

Different but still good!

This book primarily focuses on the two apprentices instead of Minilan himself. The book does a pretty good job of holding interest but there are some pretty major lulls. I would recommend this if you really enjoyed the others thus far.

I wasn't expecting a story of teen angst

From political intrigue, magic and war in the first three books to a book about childish and irritating characters and a lot of moody teens. There's a lot of characters whining about a variety of things but half way through the book so far and can't say much of interest has happened yet.

lots of character development, great humor, lots of medieval references, and the tips on picking up chicks is sure to help ;)

I find the reviews misleading

before using my credit I was at odds to skip this book or not, based on the number of bad reviews. My resolve was well reworded with a story to the same class as the 1st 3 books. The only thing you must do is realize the author casts his stories in the 1st person. So with this book centered around Rondal and Tindal it is the lens of 17 year old boys and it would be best to remember that. There was also a bit of gripe about how the women are portrayed, personally knowing more then a little about early human feudal society I find it refreshing that the author writes how it was and not cave to political correctness of the 21st century. If it makes you feel uncomfortable find some comfort in seeing how far society has come rather then being angry about how it was. lastly I really don't get clams that the book bashes on Tindal and uplifts Rondal, I would concede the book is more centered on Rondal but that make sence from a story telling perspective with Rondal being under developed until this book. Other then that anyone who thinks Tindal is cast down in this book is either a raging feminist (for he is fairly chauvinistic) or simply did not read the entire book.

hope this helps anyone who shared my initial concerns.

Way worse than first few

if you want to read about how dumb tindal is and how double teaming a girl makes everything better than this is a good read.

The underdog is an ass

The summary of the book makes it clear that this is going to be a story of boys becoming men. Instead it becomes a book of whining underdog that becomes an asshole and how he continues to be an asshole.

Honestly just skip this one.

95% filler... short of a three way nothing notable happens in this book.

A terrible attempt at a coming of age story. So much time is wasted rehashing content from the first three books that you'll find yourself hitting the fast forward button constantly if not just skipping chapters all together.

I'm in all honesty disgusted with this book. It was a feeble attempt at best and a con at worst.

There's so many coming of age books and series out there that just blow this blubbering nonsense away.

I feel sorry for the narrator, I can only imagine how many times he had to drag himself to work knowing he had to read this.

Interesting

A good story in the Spellmonger series but definitely not as well written or as interesting as the first three books. Stop reading if you don’t want spoilers




Honestly there are a few holes in this story that I dislike and it was a fever short book for the series I didn’t like the fact that they made tindel seem inadequate for 3/4 if the book and Rondal becomes great at fighting and command in 4 weeks while tindal has been training over a year and with sword masters and war mages in the last book honestly it’s annoying but I can see why the author went on this direction to try and even out the apprentice’s but in my opinion this wasn’t written well

Should be titled “Rondal the great, Tyndal sucks at everything now”

I have loved every book in this series before now. And I was excited about the idea of the two apprentices getting the training they needed.

But over the course of the book all that happens is Rondal getting more and more powerful and being a jerk while Tyndal learns a little blue magic.

Seriously Rondal goes through what amounts to basic training and proceeds to beat Tyndal at all physical/warrior activities from that point on. As someone who has done military basic training it is preposterous. Seriously, basic training and then poof better at everything and acts like a total jerk from that point on.

I started this book feeling for Rondal and ended it wishing him to his doom on the Umbra.....

Skeptical at first

Skeptical of the book following the apprentices, but it turned out to be a decent book. Was straight to the point and didn't bore you with too many details. Looking forward to the next one.

Way to much needless teen drama.

The first books in this series were great, and the third or so of this book that actually progressed the story was great as well. The other two thirds read more like a cosmo magazine than a world on the brink of destruction.

More of a side book.

Almost makes me hate the boys. To them it seems that if you are a pretty girl who will sleep with them....yes both of them, then well it doesn't matter that she lied and tried to get a innocent man kill. First they were going to send her to hang, but then oh look she wants to sleep with them. Please understand I love the first 3 books but this one I am going to return.
