Veyr good story. The only problem I had was during the story the main character would speak and act like someone much older than he really was. I would forget he was only eleven years old and start seeing him like he was around twenty. Then suddenly someone would say something about him being eleven and I would begin to question certain actions. I would still recommend it.

This is the first book in Nicholas' Ilvenworld series. Gifted Apprentice does a wonderful job of spinning a web of foundation for the future, and what's to come. Rose does a good job of grabbing you in the first chapter, making the rest of the book an easy read. He finishes with a gutsy cliffhanger that makes you want to read the next book in the series.

I really enjoyed this one. Not a 5 star though because of. lack of connection to the characters. I'm hoping in book two, there will be a bit more character development. I'd gladly read this story as a full length novel.

A decent novella about a boy who discovers he has a gift and later on discovers that the gift he thought he had is much different than the gift he does have.

I didn't fall in love with the characters but I could see myself reading a full length novel about them.

I was impressed how good this book was. I got it free on Nook. It's not super amazing, but I did enjoy it.
