Product Description

A teenage would-be wizard just wants to go to wizard school, but he finds himself on an epic quest instead...all the standard elements of a YA fantasy protagonist’s transformation into a hero - KIRKUS REVIEWS
He Who Seeks Power, Seeks Destruction.
Over 1000 years ago, nearly all the ancient wizards were destroyed after the Wizard Wars. However, the one who started the War still remains, having worked his will in secret. If he can find the last Dragonwand, he will regain his powers as the dark dragon. Unaware of the Dragonwand or the betrayer, sixteen-year-old Markus is looking for a wizard who will give him a letter of recommendation for the College of Wizardry. During his journey, he stumbles upon Tolen the Wise, who sends Markus on a quest to end the darkness and find the Dragonwand before it gets into the wrong hands. As Markus discovers growing powers and makes allies, will he find what he needs to complete Tolen’s task, or will the ancient, dark wizard uncover the Dragonwand and forever change the fate of the land of Gallenor?

At sixteen, Markus wants to study magic and become a wizard. His parents want him to stay and someday take over the family farm. It's time for him to choose, and choose he does. Slipping out in the middle of the night, Markus strikes out on his own in pursuit of rumors of an wizard in the hope that he will find in him a teacher and mentor. Markus succeeds in finding the wizard, but the old man only lives long enough to pass on his wand and a quest that, if he is successful, will save his world from a growing evil.

Markus' world is filled with different beings resembling one or another type of non-human life capable of speaking, Lizardkind, Rakki (having tails and fur much like wolves or dogs), and dragons. On his way to find the Dragon Citadel, he comes across a couple of Rakki losing a battle with an imp. Using a spell from his dreams, he manages to save the female, and is invited back to their village to rest and resupply as thanks. While there, Markus learns he has become is country's most wanted by the Guard.

I found this to be a clean, easy read. The story has all the elements a young (or old) reader could want for a fantasy novel. There's the requisite girl his age for Markus to become interested in, the obligatory over-protective father, understanding mother, a quest, forbidden magic, an evil wizard and greedy king.

With a couple of exceptions where I found passages the read like a word was missing, the story is well written and fairly well edited. The biggest exception to this is the difference in the title on the cover of the book versus what is on the inside of the book. An easy enough fix for eBooks, not so for the print copies. This should have been caught before going to press.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 1st book for a new fantasy writer 14 March 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Enjoyable fantasy novel. Although written for a younger age range, it has appeal for all ages. A lot of books use excessively fancy language and take forever to get to the point...a lot of scenery and no real substance. Only half way through, but I like how this one doesn't waste so much time on all the side dishes, so to speak, that they forget about the actual entree.

To find a dragon wand a a boy must find friends, magic, adventure and knowledge. It is difficult to learn when there is no school or teachers.

Due to the issues mentioned above, I can only give this book three stars. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. June 6, 2016. Having seen that the problems with the title have been corrected, I am revising my rating. Not catching that error was a pretty major gaff all the way around. I am very happy to see it corrected and am adjusting my rating to 4 stars.
