ABOUT THE BOOK
Fia Brithin is beginning an adventure.
On her first visit to the King Hanor's palace, 16 year old Fia Brithin stumbles into a court intrigue. To keep the secret safe, the Chancelor sends her off as apprentice to a famous, and reclusive, high mountain jeweler.
...And straight into adventure.
Discovering gems with deep secrets and new friends with the same, Fia learns a whole lot more than just modeling wax. When to trust a stranger, and when not to; why not to try stealing from gem thieves; what heroism is, what royalty ought to be, and that the mountains themselves can sometimes be the greatest danger of all.
The first in a series, Jeweler's Apprentice introduces protagonist Fia Brithin to the wide, wide world, and starts her on a journey toward adventures, and that difficult thing called growing up.
~ MY REVIEW ~
Jeweler's Apprentice by E. Kaiser Writes is the first book to what I can see is going to be a lovely fantasy series!
In a beautiful, fantastical world, a young girl travels to the palace with her family. While there, she unintentionally becomes caught up in court intrigue. Which turns out to be quite dangerous. And gets her sent on an adventure.
Think jewels, dwarves, mysteries, wars, and sweetly budding friendships. Gentle and epic swirled together. More lyrical, "older" writing style. Jeweler's Apprentice was definitely more slower-paced, but that doesn't mean it wasn't well-done. Just, yes, an "older" feeling writing style. (Like Anne of Green Gables perhaps? Except fantasy, *grins*)
Anyway, I really enjoyed it! This tale caught my attention and pulled me in. It has the potential to be liked by a wide range of audiences, I think. Appropriate and intriguing; I look forward to reading more! *smiles*
