Opposites attack!

When the Magelord Minalan, the Spellmonger's two apprentices, Tyndal and Rondal, were knighted after the battle of Timberwatch, they were dubbed Knights Magi: a new class of nobility for distinguished High Magi. Designed to combine the pursuit of arcane knowledge with the noble aspirations of chivalry, it elevated them above common warmage...in theory. The problem was they had no idea how to be a Knight Mage...because no one had ever been one before. And as a couple of half-trained rustic apprentices from the Mindens they did not feel up to the task or the high ideals of their title.

But Master Minalan the Spellmonger decided to cure that ignorance. He arranges for Tyndal and Rondal to be tutored and trained together in their new vocation, learning the arts of magic, the craft of warfare, and the subtleties of chivalry from the finest masters in the kingdom.

If they didn't kill each other, first.

The two young spellmonger's apprentices from the Minden mountain domain of Boval Vale have much in common: both had their homes destroyed, they were both sent into exile by the goblin invasion, and they both serve the same master. Yet they could not be more different.

Rondal is quiet, bookish, and introspective, dedicated to the disciplines of academic magic and anticipating a future of study, service, and, perhaps, romance. Tyndal is bold and brash: an extroverted over-achiever with dreams of glory, gold, and girls. Fate, circumstance, and the whims of the gods have forced them together, but the raw emotions of adolescence and the trauma of war put them at each others' throats with depressing frequency. Master Minalan can't have that, especially not in his fragile new domain with another baby on the way...so he sends them on the road.

Jealousy, anxiety, passion, and frustration conspire to make them rivals - but if they don't figure out a way to learn to work together, and quickly, then their stubborn feud could end up affecting the fate of the entire war. Along the way they pick up some enemies, gain a few allies, master a few new skills, and attempt to learn the laws of love. But as they stumble through their lessons and learn to master their tempers, they discover that the strongest bonds between men are forged by the most difficult of trials.

For after they become proficient at magic, war, and errantry, they are put to the test in the field, the most difficult of circumstances...a mission where the strength of their friendship and the quality of their honor may be what defines them best as - Knights Magi!

Harry potter meets pick up artist guide book.

I'm not sure of the point of this book. the largest part of the story seems to be summarizing pick up artist techniques with the backdrop of some wizards at school then some fairly uneventful missions. it could have been a lot shorter and I've come out at the end of the book liking the two main characters less than when the book started. if you're a desperate man with a disrespect for women then maybe you'll get some helpful tips from this book but otherwise it's a shame I had to go through it because the other books so far were much better.

Welcome change of perspective

Keeps getting better. Would have been perfect to have a few more arcs in it.

That thing with the girl and the boys

awesome book. It got a little too much fan fiction flair at the end, though...

Boring first half

I enjoy the idea of the rivalry between the two apprentices but the way it's told it gets boring fast as Rondal is simply too good. The last 2/5 are quite good again because the story isn't so one-sided anymore and focuses on the war again.

sehr nette Side Story

Abgesehen vom generellen Problem, daß Frauen in der Spelling Serie immer etwas zu unterwürfig dargestellt sind (und man auch auf die detaillierte Beschreibung mancher Szenen gut verzichten kann) ist die Geschichte unterhaltsam. Dazu trägt auch die angenehme Erzählstimme von John Lee bei. Freu mich auf die weiteren Bände.
