He knew she was telling the truth. The thought of torture sickened him, but he would not balk at using it if he believed it would work. He had not the talent for reading thoughts or the ability to scry, as a few minor magicians he had once known. She must tell him. He had the knowledge to cause her to confess. He hated to ruin such an admirable specimen of dwarfdom by making her compliant, but his need was great.

This is the second and last book in Nye's duology (the first is An Unexpected Appren

I FINALLY finished. This one was a struggle for every word. I had found that in the first book (the Unexpected Apprentice) the start dragged a bit, but once the story started to move it had me pulled in and I barreled toward the last page. Not so much in the follow-up. Normally, I would have just put it down and called it a loss. However, I really wanted to know the end of the story so I struggled through.

The premise of the books is essentially "a little hobbit girl goes on an adventure". There

“A Forthcoming Wizard” (Tor, $27.95, 430 pages) is the conclusion of a two-part series that begin with “An Unexpected Apprentice” and it’s a slightly dumbed down version of “The Hobbit.” The hero is Tildi, a member of the smallfolk, and she has possession of an immensely powerful artifact that a powerful evil wizard wants desperately.

I took a break to read other books that were nearing their due date from the library. But I'm glad I came back to this book to finish it.

The final ending with its wrap up left me a little dissatisfied, but overall an enjoyable read. I hope my nearly 10-year-old will enjoy it too.

The pair of books in this series are a fine read. A pleasant "and everyone live happily ever after."
This book provides a stunning finish to this tale, begun in An Unexpected Apprentice. It was very hard to put down. Recommended, but read the first book before you pick up this one.

Better than book one, a little wordy but held my attention all the way to the last word.

A lot of the books I read remind me of issues that I regularly think about. "A Forthcoming Wizard" (and "An Unexpected Apprentice") reminded me of the many times I have wondered about the concept of racism and the idea of “perfect/ideal”.

Back in the days the Shining Ones took it upon themselves to experiment with the knowledge they had acquired. Like all good scientist they asked themselves the question “I wonder what would happen if …”. Unlike the really good scientists, the Shining Ones forgot
