Justan is the son of a powerful warrior, Faldon the Fierce, someone he admires greatly. In his studies, to become a soldier, he lacks the necessary grades to graduate the training school and ends up being held back a further year. He is given a special tutor and we see him grow into a powerful opponent. Elsewhere, there are some important events happening in the world, several which might affect Justan in his journeys.

In the beginning, I found Justan to be a bit unbearable; he had a poor attitude. It kind of felt as if he didn't want to be in the academy, despite his desperation to be there. He had complaints about almost all of the training. If he were being forced there, I could understand his problems, but he was the one who wanted to be attending the academy. He also treated others poorly and had little respect towards his mentors. However, after what you might call a "training montage", he became somewhat more grateful to people and came to respect his mentors. He came to appreciate the training. I even found it quite interesting that he took much of the advice, despite still being sceptical of it. For example, the tuition in archery. Whilst he mocked the teacher for being whimsical and the lessons never amounting to anything, he actually took the advice of the teacher and found it helped.

I think Ma'am seems overly violent sometimes. For example, though it's only hearsay/ gossip, in chapter 17; one character notes that he almost got hit by her for simply asking her name. By no means is that the only event of her ill temper; it's just one example. Kenn Dollie is one of two bullies against Justan. He, in Justan's words is a "buffoon who fancied himself Academy material". He mocks Kenn for failing a test.

Why describe a monster in detail when you can simple say it looks evil. why have a characters actions and words convey thier "character" when you can tell us what they are thinking and feeling. why be subtle when you can beat the reader across the face break thier nose and spell it out in blood using them as a human pencil.

The world is awash with grey and this book is black and white and all over bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 12 July 2014
By Justin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read through all 6 books (so far) and I must say I am impressed. The characters are well developed and interesting, the plot is believable, and there are even some semi original powers and abilities. For a self published book there are surprisingly few errors as well. Now I am no big name editor, but from an avid readers perspective I have to rate this series better than many popular published fantasy fiction. Bravo and keep them coming and good luck getting published! Although I do enjoy the $3 price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have read every book in the series and am eagerly awaiting the next book! 23 January 2016
By Charlie Gipson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read every book in the series and am eagerly awaiting the next book. I love sword and sorcery type fantasy... and Cooley does it pretty well. These books remind me of the Terry Brooks Shanarra series more than anything else... with some interesting twists thrown in. Some of the characters need a bit more development... but some are solid. Great escapist reading, and good fun! Is it Tolkien? No! But it does beat most new Fantasy I have read...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun read. A little cartoony, but fun 29 May 2013
By Eric Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The names for characters and places are a bit goofy/jarring (like the author was just tossing out silly names for fun), and none of the characters seem terribly realistic, but in a way... none of that really matters. Once I got over a certain literary snobbishness, I had a fun time reading this book (and the sequels), and felt that I got my money's worth. Even though the characters are bit cartoonish, I still found myself wanting to know what was in store for them and what was coming next. It's sort of like if you sat in on a very detailed high school D&D campaign (and edited out all the banter about cheetos and wenches).

I enjoyed this book, got throne off a little with the different random POV, but I have faith. I like the set up of the different academies and the many races that there are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start 1 February 2014
By Yette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4.5 stars rounded up....

I managed to pick the title up for free at one point, but after reading it, have purchased the next couple & plan on finishing the series. It's a pretty quick read that is entertaining. Lots of common elements, but a fun ride. I actually like some of the characters and want to see what will happen next.
I was a little concerned at first, considering the main character is 17 years old and the first character introduced is an obvious anagram. (I know this because I'm not good at anagrams and this one hit me over the head!) I was beginning to think it is a young adult fantasy. As the story progresses, I'd say it's not directly aimed at YA, but there aren't any major adult-only themes, so younger readers are welcome as well.
I'm recently drawn to very grand, epic works (WoT, GoT, etc.) but don't have a lot of reading time (so I listen to those during my commute.) The titles I read are usually shorter like this one, but then at times leave me disappointed. Not so with this book.
