The War Enders Apprentice (Chronicles of the Martlet Book 1) Reviews
Elizabeth Guizzetti weaves a delightful tale of wars, politics and intrigue across seven worlds in her new novella, “The War Ender’s Apprentice.” Her characters are engaging and nicely portrayed. I was especially taken with Eohan as he tries to figure out how to exist in his new world as apprentice to a War Ender. I went to bed, but couldn’t put the book down until I finished it. I felt like my child self, hiding under my blanket with a flashlight—I kept expecting my mother to come in and tell me it was past my bedtime. A fun, quick read.
I liked the diversity and originality of this novel. Believeable and Relatable characters really help to captivate the reader and get them invested in the happenings of this story. This was a great start to the series, a lot of backstory needed and had to understand a lot as with a lot of first in series, but I am excited to see where it goes next.
I really enjoyed the pacing and how it was steady throughout. It is fast paced and doesn’t let up and didn’t have moments that dragged. It made for a fast and furious read.It was a great start to the series and really shined light on to the characters and world in general that make us want to learn more.I liked that this was fantasy but also had many other qualities that made it lovable to readers.
Elizabeth Guizzetti weaves an action-packed fantasy here that sings traditional, old-style, nostalgic fantasy. Elves and Dwarfs mingle with humans on a violent scale. These people don't really get along, and each have their own agenda in a universe consisting of many realms.Guizzetti's characterisation is what grabs you here, especially when her characters belong in such a complicated, but interesting mythology. We have guilds and realms and official titles such as the War Ender. The book has some very adult themes: slavery and politics for example, but I felt like I was sucked back into my childhood reading authentic fantasy. And mixed in with the adult overtones there is a coming of age story too. Eohan was actually my favourite character, and seeing his progression through the book kept me going until the end.Elizabeth Guizzetti's no nonsense writing packs many punches and combines intelligent themes. I'm hooked to see where the Chronicles of the Martlet series takes me. Fans of Terry Brooks and Dionne Lister will love this.
It's often difficult to create a complete fantasy world in novella form, but Elizabeth Guizzetti pulls it off in The War Ender's Apprentice. Lady Alana of House Eyreid is a Guild assassin with a special role. She's plied her trade for fifty years, but now it's time to make room for an apprentice. While attacking a slave ship, she has a vision of the future, and discovers a new apprentice among the newly freed slaves. In this rich, absorbing tale of a powerful woman in her declining years, Lady Alana leads an effort to rescue a still-enslaved boy and leave a legacy poets will celebrate for centuries. The War Ender's Apprentice is exciting, well-paced entertainment that signals the start of an excellent series. Note: The author provided a copy to this reader in exchange for an honest review.
As expected from Guizzetti: superb, detailed world building, both the physical environment and the social structure. For those who care about such things, the fight scenes are beautifully choreographed as well, blood and all. I found both the over-all adventure and the character development to be interesting, although it wasn't always clear whether the title apprentice (I presume the one she rescued from slavery) was the focal character, or if it was more about the elf knight herself.
I absolutely loved this book. I love the world building and the world itself. The novella is about a War Ender name Alana. She's an elf species called fairsigne. She is working for a guild in which she saves people by ending wars. I enjoyed it a how lot if fall somewhere between the feel of an old sword and magic fantasy novel and Dungeons and dragon.
