    Inhaltsangabe

    The ancient magic of wizards was anything but dark. It was the enlightenment that lifted humanity from the squalor of superstition, and the worship of fell spirits and capricious gods, but those days are gone. The shining glory of the sorcerers burned away the subtlety of wisdom, replacing it with easy power, held only in the hands of the elite - a new age built upon the elemental supremacy of aristocrats and the ignorance of the masses.

    But this will change, for the greatest power comes with knowledge, and the deeper teachings of wizardry have not been utterly lost. The last wizard of the old tradition still survives in solitude, nursing tired grudges and waiting for death.

    His passing might have gone unnoticed, but for the imposition of a youth too stubborn to accept his refusal to take an apprentice. With a new student comes new hope, and that hope has caused old powers to stir again. That the world will change is inevitable, but the shape of the future is anything but certain.

    classic cishet male fantasy

    This could have been a nice classic mainstream fantasy story. I enjoyed parts of it, but if you dislike misogyny, heteronormativity and binary gender clichés, this story will soon get on your nerves as it did mine.
    A pity, really. I would have liked to like like this.

    A story you have to love

    I can only say that you should listen to this book!
    Took me four days to complete the first and the second book.
    The only problem that I face now is that I have to wait until next year.

    I can just say thank you to the author and the narrator that they created such a masterpiece.

    Darker Harry Potter in a medieval setting

    This book is 20 hours long but it felt like mere minutes. You get sucked and cant stop. I never layed down and just hear a audiobook without doing anything else (I did it for six hours at a time). The PERFECT choise if you wanna here a magican-apprentice story. The Speaker is my second favorite i ever heard.

    God damn it, this is good!

    The general plot is quite basic yet the many lively characters and their relations to each other, their secrets, humour, growth, and bonding makes this a page-turner. In the case of the audiobook, Reynolds does a marvellous job. His impressions were on point! There is also quite a bit of sexuality teased here and there but instead of devolving into cheap fantasies, it humanizes the protagonist. He drives the story through his own choices, often called stupid because of that but firmly sticking to his values.
    The magic system and lore surrounding it make me as a physics student excited as it seems very grounded in its basic reasoning and yet it is used to create fantastic images and demonstrations of power.

    Surprisingly refreshing.

    Plot, characters and world are pretty stereotypical for the genre. But somehow it doesn't feel as dusty as I first expected. The narrator is superb, as always.

    A good story with dangerous choices

    The story so far was fun to follow, it isn't bad. But the author took some liberties that where at times disruptive to the pace. William achieved too much in too short of a time, so the author trys to bottleneck the rise of the lad by making his achievements dangerous secrets that he has to keep to himself.

    I'd be much smarter to let him achieve things step by step, gather the acknowledgement step by step. The story seems too complicated for its own good, too many overpowering trump cards such as the fey or the sheer ability to bring upon mankind's end of Will slips and breaks his neck.

    I hope the second book gets these aspects in order until then, it is still a good read, although far from bestseller or such titles.

    Decent story.

    The story is nice and the magic system is interesting. However, the main Character is as dense as bedrock though. He needs every lession taught to him atleast twice. And he is also needlessly Horny.

    Getting great

    I think the story has a very slow start. But it's getting really good. And in the end i get really attached to the character.

    Just awfull

    Story starts out with some promise. Then kills itself and turns into a cringe-fest of stupid decisions, flat characters, predictable plot "twists" and a solid 30 chapters that could be summarized into 1 Chapter.

    Complete waste of my time. I wish I could have my time back.

    Very entretaining with a good rhythm.

    Finally a story o coming to power that is paced over a believable period.
    The MC actually needs to learn his craft.
    Good book, will read on.
