Under the Shadow of Darkness: Book 1 of the Apprentice Series
Magician’s apprentice Bel along with a wise cracking wizard must journey under the shadow of darkness to try to discover how the fabric of reality has been rent, tearing open a gateway to the underworld and allowing the dead to walk among the living. Who did it and why? Was it intentional? Can they defeat them? Can they close the rift? Can a teenager learning the ways of magic and an ancient archmage long past his prime stop the darkness, close the breach and save all reality?
This was such an entertaining read! A great read for young readers. The action and suspense was so entertaining. It was well written and I can't wait to read more from Cardona. It's not often I get to review books for younger readers, but I'm so glad I was able to read this one. If you have a young reader looking for a fun fantasy read I would recommend this one!
