Publisher's Summary

Kingdoms are at war and young wizards Eynon and Merry are thrust into a complex web of conflicts, conspiracies, and long-hidden secrets as they learn more about the true threats facing Dâron, including an invasion by 500 dragonships from the northern kingdom of Bifurland.

On the Bifurlanders’ flagship, Eynon demonstrates his magic for their king.

“What would you like to see?” asked Eynon.

“Something big and showy,” said King Bjarni’s young daughter Sigrun.

It will have to be a fireball, thought Eynon.

He twirled his staff a few times, trying to look impressive, then realized he’d need a lot more practice before he could. Eynon held up his staff and concentrated, calling on his red magestone for power and his blue magestone for control before releasing a concentrated blast of energy skyward.

Seconds later, everyone was tossed to the deck by a tremendous explosion overhead. Concentric rings of blue fire surrounded a glowing red ball. A massive boom like the loudest peal of thunder ever heard assaulted their ears. Waves of heat beat down, almost setting the ship‘s sails alight.

“Oops,” said Eynon.

Nicely done

I know this is a young adult book but if the narrator had not read it in a simplistic storytellers voice, (the way you would read it to a small child) can I think it would have been much more engaging and fun.
I think that writing on this was fairly well done, except for one major thing, the publisher or the writer decided to take one book and split it into two.... the first books cliffhanger was in not only an inappropriate but also jarring place.
the Cliffhanger on the second book is at least leading you into a new book and not feeling that you are cheated.

Schroeder has done it again! Wow!

Strap in and get ready for an awesome second book in the series. From the very first chapter I could not put this one down, and just like the first we join Eynan on his journey. The performance by Peter Kenny is absolutely astounding and really brings the world to life with different accents and a wonderful pace. I can't wait to see what is in store for Eynan and the gang in the upcoming book(s). Keep them coming!!!!!

out of order?

it's an ok story just really confused it seems as if the chapters are out of order. chapter 75 seems to pick up where the first book ended.
