Publisher's Summary

Summer vacation isn’t all fun and hanging out when you’re a wizard-in-training. For partly reformed warlock Chance Fortunato, it’s even worse. In addition to the constant study and training, he has to prove he’s ready to be a full-fledged apprentice before he starts at the Franklin Academy. Plus, he’s beginning to think someone has it out for him.

If things weren’t bad enough with a snooty proctor monitoring his every move and demons trying to capture him, his father finally makes his first attempt to get his wayward son back under his control by trying to frame his mom. When the old man proves just how far he is willing to go with tragic results, Chance must make a desperate sacrifice-play to guarantee his freedom once and for all.

don't dance around

you've done pretty good telling a story. by using characters with real problems, the girlfriend seems like a bpd diagnosis and a fairly respectable portrayal of abuse and recovery for example, when you dance away from that style it's patronizing and annoying.
switching your audience from a group intelligent enough to see the characters flaws as important, to a group that is so shallow they want to listen to 9 hours of "angry twilight but magic" isn't going to make for a story worth writing more of.
I don't know if the author or publisher will ever see this so it's probably a waste of internet, but having your police interaction, with Zuckerberg or whoever was the case manager, end with the police being addressed with anything other than subservience and no one being shot or beaten just isn't real.
I've had my girlfriend, probably when we were around 17 years old, tased until she fell over and she never touched anyone. I was already in cuffs and backseat so just had to watch them decide on the best way to resolve VERBAL conflict with police, and by a girl physically unable to hurt me (at the time) much less a "responsible adult".
So, having to read about police suffering the indignity of defending themselves from children, and a dog that would have been shot offhand because of no leash,and no one being shown from where their authority originates strays from "fantasy" and into a narrative so blatantly false that it should have been omitted and saved the insult of having to read it.
magic and stuff can at some point be thought entertaining by most, and I feel like everyone has tried to use "the force" at some point. but no one would believe what happened after the cops had their lives threatened by what was obviously an attempted gang ambush. they didn't even have a chance to grab some evidence from the cruiser they forgot to document earlier.
anyway, either commit to the honest portrayal that can be interesting as a view of society or more twilight, but it's annoying having to go back and forth whenever you hit something government backed.

Meh. Glad it’s free.

The first two books in this series were great. This installment just didn’t capture my attention the way the other ones did. Hopefully the fourth book gets better.

Great Story

Really enjoying the story line. Can't wait for the next books

The narrator has a very unique voice. he doesn't do voices well but his inability paired with his voice somehow actually works. I don't know if it would with other books but seems to fit this series.

A very annoying listen

I am just into chapter 4 and already at a point where I want my credit back. For some reason, the author decided to salt and pepper this book with an overabundance of, ""I said." "He said." "She said."" About 1/4 of the story are those exact words. It is incredibly frustrating to hear repeatedly.

Why…

Civilizations rise and fall in the time the author takes to describe a female character’s outfit.

Well Written

Very well done, recommended for both story and performance. World building is one of the greatest pros of the series.

I'm hooked

Loved this book, as it shows the continued growth of the main characters. I'm starting the next book ASAP. Enter into a world that you'll never want to leave.

I must have missed something

I felt like I missed something in between book 2 and 3, maybe a short story it bothered me at fist. But they only mention it in the begining an then later on there were caracters that appear I had no idea who were. Sho I got no info before they showed up. That got me frustrated. This book was not as good as book 1 and 2 but I feal like its more of a character build up story and an omen for books to come.

Loved it!

I’m a bit of a wrinkly! But I still liked this book. It’s aimed a teen market. A young apprentice in high school. But it’s OK. Not too much teenage angst. Good story right balance of magic demons and mages. And it was free … no complaints here.

genuinely like the characters but stuggles alot

After battering books 1, 2, 3 and 2 hours of 4 in 5 days the characters have grown on me. But this book / audio book, has been less engaging. it feels like the author didn't quite know where to turn with the story so dragged me at times kicking against the urge to quit the book.
There just feels like a lack of development in the plot or base characters. up to this point id support each book out right this one... id say listen or read if you're doing the series of books.

KAZ 🇬🇧😃 Umm 🤔

Although I'm enjoying the story but the character's are supposed to be 16 yr's old so why's there wayyy to much sexual tension & lust from Chance & his werewolf 🐺 girlfriend I mean C'MON this is for children apparently & I've never heard of any 16 yr old boy blubber so much is it's ridiculous really that's why I'd slap the crap out of him tell him to grow a damn backbone

Book 3

Chance has to be tested to make sure he has fulfilled the requirements to head off to Franklin Academy. His Proctor is a snooty 19 year old who dislikes him but eventually changes his mind. Some very sad parts in this story

So good!

I really like this series. It’s young adult but has lots of mature themes and adult content. More conservative parents might not like it for their kids, but it has some good messages there too, about friendship, loyalty and taking responsibility for your own actions. At the start, I didn’t like Chase, but he’s growing on me. He’s growing up, I guess and becoming a much better person. I really like the female characters and how they’re written. I like how they have their own personalities and goals, and they aren’t just there to say something about the protagonist. They’re also on their own journeys. And I like that Chase and Shay have a healthy, respectful relationship. They support each other and have each other’s backs, but they also have their own lives and respect each other’s strengths. It’s refreshing! Looking forward to binging the next one in the series!
