Publisher's Summary

When Lenodara the Hawkmaiden - Dara, to her friends - was made an apprentice to the foremost wizard in the world, Minalan the Spellmonger, Magelord of her native land of Sevendor, she thought that the adventurous life was behind her. She looked forward to a long, boring career of learning how to read and taking magic lessons...but Dara’s life as the Spellmonger’s new apprentice is anything but boring!

Within days of assuming her new duties, a goblin invasion in the distant land of Gilmora compels Minalan to gather his forces to repel it...and that means Dara, too. Her unique ability to use the ancient Alka Alon weapon, the Thoughtful Knife, may be the only way to thwart the invasion - and combat the dragons that have ravaged the castles of the land.

But the battlefield is just the beginning of her new adventure, and she finds the aristocracy of the city of Barrowbell is as challenging as a goblin attack. But new adventures lead Dara to new friends in the unlikeliest of places on her way to becoming the Hawklady!

Short, but great.

The writing is great! But these are 1/2 as long as the main series books, but cost the same.
The writing is still great! But the change has not gone unnoticed.

another page turner

I love that this series gives you a different angle and perspective to a story you already know without it being boring at all. the new insights you get are facinating and it let's the author develop minor characters from the main series with much more detail.
the only thing I would correct is that this narrator pronounces many names differently from the narrator of the main series, that is a bit jarring at times (maybe only to me, I am a bit pedantic at times ...) but that could easily be remedied I think.

Outstanding addition to the Spellmonger world

The cadet books have been an absolute joy to listen to for an additional viewpoint of the main arch. Finty Williams performance of the Hawkmaidens voice is awesome!

the book is good I did enjoy it however it seems a bit lacking compared to the original few spellmonger books.
kind of young teen version.

The best fantasy series going keeps expanding.

A worthy successor to the Spellmonger series follows the most interesting of the Spellmongers apprentices. It shows the events of the other books in the series from a different perspective and does so masterfully. The Cadet series so far has lived up to the standard set by the Spellmonger series, which may be the best fantasy series out there right now hands down.

Loved it

Me. man our, please keep writing and I will keep buying. Re-writing the storyline from the perspective of previously secondary characters was brilliant.

love the world, but this one fell a little short

the world of the spellmonger is fast paced and fun, but i felt like this one was not really up to the standard of the other books...
