It was a fun read. Young apprentice's master gets killed and he has to run from a stronger wizard. The final several chapters were the only real unexpected plot.

If you're looking for something light and easy to follow, it's a good choice.

the main character goes trough changes.. one worst than the one before, from a brat into a coward, to damn careless, to a jackass, to full retard.. this is a story of rinse and repeat' always committing the same mistakes over and over again, and the end is the most moronic and cheap that I have ever read' Spoiler.: (view spoiler) ...more

A fun, light read - would definitely recommend

Enjoyed the series very much. Lighter in tone than my usual fantasy fare, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Story moves along quickly and focuses completely on the main character, unlike many other fantasy novels, with their seemingly endless cast of characters and complicated relationships. Perfect vacation reading material...just enough story to sink your your teeth into, the tale moves along quickly (but not too quickly) and the ending leaves you

This was a fun book. I read it (them) in a day. When you read The Complete Series, it reads as a single novel. It read a lot like many of the books that I loved so much as a teen and young adult. Situations arose and were dealt with, without much background building up to the new scenario. Had it been written for an older audience, I'm sure the author would have fleshed out the interludes between the conflicts. Never-the-less, this was a fun book that I shall probably read again.

A tapestry well woven

As the magic was gathered and woven so we're the threads of this tale.
Although it follows a pattern that pattern is enriched with skillful plotting and writing.
I want more from this author.

A multi book set, good but great. Enjoyable as a whole, I found the lead character too often calling back into actions and hoping he would finally grow up. The wizard duels were wonderful and the gotcha real grounders.

A Charming Spell Caster

Although written for far younger readers than I am, EverMage is full of rough and tumble sorcerous battles where a young apprentice learns that, sometimes, magic isn't what it's cracked up to be. I enjoyed tagging along.

Great read...

Brings me back to the good old days of pure stories of magic without the accompanying swords. Easy to read, flows well, and an enjoyable easy read. I recommend it!

The first book started out slow but quickly picked up the pace. The MC acted more like a 12 year old boy than his purported 17, and his maturation during the series was like an early teenager that was on his own. There was a lot of graphic death during the boys travels without any real angst or guilt, which was definitely not typical at all. The action was surprisingly intense and interesting but the story felt a bit rushed and lacking. Good series overall, but nothing to write home about.

I liked EverMage by Trip Ellington. I don't read fantasy type stories often, but not too far off my regular reading genre. The characters are believable, likable and hateable, with great world-building, and a good story line, everything you need to have a good story. Give it a go.

Life's path

All in all a great read. A few twists and turns keeps the reader interested in what is about to happen.

Simple fun magic story

The world is simple and the magic system has a few holes in it. But the main character is likable enough.

A really good wizardly romp

Never a dull spot in this book. Keeps you wanting to read more.
Sadly it didn't sound like there would be a book two.

Reader thoughts: The six "novels" were short and very basic. Each had three characters (sometimes a fourth!) and almost no characterization. It was like a 200 page book with six intros, six climaxes, and one plot. The writing itself was fine, nothing special.
Yet, despite the book feeling just average, I did enjoy it. The tale moves quickly, and it's not hard to keep track of the story and characters. The magic isn't fully explained, but it's okay. I wanted Mithris to succeed in finding all six

Shelves: fantasy
This is a pretty well-written coming-of-age fantasy. It's supposed to be a series, but the individual books must have been awfully short, because all together it adds up to one normal size book.

There's a decent balance between action and character development. The magic system is based on ley lines that cross dimensional boundaries in a multiverse. Several of the characters are magically powerful crystals that can communicate with the main character, an apprentice becoming a wizard.

Almost no

Young Adult fantasy. Pretty tame.

Great fantasy

I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys books that have great characters, a good storyline, and lots of magic.

A great whimsical fantasy with a bumbling mage in training, and talking rocks! I loved it, and so do my grandkids who are currently working their way through it.
