First Year (The Black Mage, #1) by Rachel E. Carter by Rachel E. Carter

EDIT: This Read and Review is for Book 1 ONLY. Sorry for the confusion and miscommunication!

Genre: YA fantasy, romance, historical, supernatural

First Year (The Black Mage #1)
Book Description:

Before the age of seventeen, the young men and women of Jerar are given a choice-follow tradition, or pursue a trial year in one of the realm's three war schools to study as a soldier, knight or mage...

For 15-year-old Ryiah, the choice has always been easy. Become a warrior and leave the boring confines of her lowborn life behind. Set to enroll in the School of Knighthood on the eve of her next birthday, plans suddenly shift when her twin brother discovers powers. Hoping that hers will soon follow, she enrolls with Alex at the Academy instead -the realm's most notorious war school for those with magic.

Yet when she arrives, Ry finds herself competing against friend and foe for one of the exalted apprenticeships. Every "first-year" is given a trial year to prove their worth -and no amount of hard work and drive will guarantee them a spot. It seems like everyone is rooting for her to fail -and first and foremost among them Prince Darren, the school prodigy who has done nothing but make life miserable since she arrived.

When an accidental encounter leads Ryiah and Darren to an unlikely friendship, she is convinced nothing good will come of it. But the lines become blurred when she begins to improve -and soon she is a key competitor for the faction of Combat... Still, nothing is ever as it seems -and when the world comes crashing down around her, Ry is forced to place faith in the one thing she can believe in -herself. Will it be enough?

It takes a min to set up an account (all they need is email/name) & then click RONE awards> week four> YA supernatural. No pressure to vote, just if you feel like supporting an author you enjoyed it will help more readers discover my books!

message 38: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (dreamerj) Loved this book, read in two days! Will write the review today. Any interest in sharing book two for a review? Do you need any more beta-readers for book three?

Jessica, I loved your review!!! Thank you so, sooo much <3 I can't do any more ARC's for book two (my publisher only let me give out a limited number before its release) but it is on overdrive: http://bit.ly/ODApprentice (free ebook library, all you need is your local library card # -if your library's database doesn't have it you can usually call the librarian and request they carry the ebook and most will say yes:D). I already have a small group of beta readers for book three, but I do rafflecopter giveaways before each book's release for ARC's! I hope that helps & happy reading on your next book!!!


message 41: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (dreamerj) Glad my review is so well liked! :) My library does not currently have 'Apprentice' available, but I will try requesting it. Being able to read this one on the computer because of its PDF format was really convenient. Thanks again for the opportunity!

Holly (hollyb_nc) Just had a chance to check this out - since you've increased it to 20, I'd love to participate! I review on GR and Amazon and can probably do B&N (sometimes I have issues getting their review thingy to work - probably user error). I will also post the review on my Tumblr. If I'm approved, my email is bryanholly34(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thanks!
