      Allow me to correct the synopsis for this book:"As far as bad luck goes, Tiadaria's has been the stuff of legend pretty horrible, but not the worst ever. After being sold into slavery by her father and accused of a murder she didn't commit accused of being an accomplice to a murder she sort of instigated, she finds herself facing the executioner. The only thing standing between her neck and the sharp edge of the axe is the village Constable.After thirty years of loyal service to the Imperium, Ro [...]

      I love sword and sorcery fantasy and the premise for this novel sounded appealing: the execution, however, was disappointing. There were numerous typos and awkward sentence structures. The character development was shallow and the plot thin. I found myself wondering if the book was originally targeted to young readers and then spiced up for an older audience. The author tells rather than shows action. Social interactions and inner turmoil are treated in a consistently cursory fashion. When a sla [...]

      Martin F. Hengst takes the reader on a dark journey of family betrayal leading a young girl into a rough life of slavery then into salvation. The storytelling is remarkable, and the character development of the main characters is well thought out. I would have liked to have known more background of the Captain (Royce), but overall well done. I liked it so much that, after just finishing it, I immediately bought the second one in the series, "The Darkest Hour", and am finding it a page turner as [...]

    • Cedar Sanderson says:

      Ok, this started out ok… and then I was jarred out of the story by the girl's reaction to being sold into slavery. Sorry, but in that culture and era, this was not uncommon, nor would it have been terribly unexpected on her part to be sold, if not as a an out and out slave, as a 'bride' to the trader. So her reactions were completely wrong there, without some development of trust toward her father, which the author goes out of their way to show the opposite. Then, her collaring yielding that k [...]

      I found myself rolling my eyes a lot during this novel. It was pretty predictable in places. I also didn't like the flow of time. It seemed like often characters would stop and reflect about relationships that were only a few minutes old, reading too much into a handshake or a hello. There also wasn't really any exploration of the magic paradigm. It had neither the cool mystique of something unexplained, nor the functional niftiness of a seamlessly integrated part of everyday life.

    • Andrew Claude says:

      This book held a lot of promise, and seemed to deliver well in the first 40-50% of the book, albeit with some predictable plot turns. Unfortunately, the author seemed to hurry to his ending, short-cutting the development of relationships and characters in a way that seemed as if he was working against a word count.

    • Ron Sturm says:

      A unique story of a young girl and her trials and tribulations. I don't want to give anything away, but it does have an interesting way of putting things together that make the story come out. I will be getting book two when it comes out!!

    • Jay says:

      not actually a novel. more like a sketched outline for a trilogy, without any of the hard parts like character motivation or development put in.

    • Leanne says:

      After a long and joyless stint of reviewing bad erotica, returning to good ol' fantasy with The Last Swordmage felt like coming home again to busted pipes and water in the basement. But hey, home is still home, right?The premise is simple, but it did catch my interest. The unique elements are few and far between, though. Don't expect anything too fancy or original from this book; it's a straightforward, typical, and pretty predictable piece of high fantasy. I guess it's somewhat of an example of [...]

    • Mihir says:

      This was an impulse buy on as the blurb really seemed interesting and the excerpt was good enough. The story is about Tiadaria who is a young girl sold into slavery and who realizes that she will probably be killed. Royce is a local constable that buys her from her slavers to stop her death. What Tiadaria later realizes is that Royce is not just a constable but also an accomplished sworsperson and a swordmage. He finds in Tiadaria the requisite talent and latent ability to carry on the position [...]

    • Sara says:

      A good book and a good read for those who enjoy fighting and magic. Especially awesome for those who enjoy characters who do both those of those things. The story is told through three different characters: Tiadaria (main character), Royce AKA the Captain, and the antagonist Zarfensis. Most of the true action is during the last quarter of the book, where the story really starts rolling. Be prepared to read some sappy stuff (But heartwarming stuff, not ooey gooey romance that makes you want to sk [...]

      Great Fantasy BookThe story was immediately engaging and pulled you in right from the start. Throughout the story I found myself rooting for Tiadara and her coming of age story. The world building left you curious and wanting to know more. You get a sense of justice,but without things being too perfect. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series and would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of fantasy.

    • Sarah Ropson says:

      This was a short book. (ETA: I am not rating this 0 stars, I just don't like to rate them! I did enjoy this book) Well written though there could have been a bit more character development and telling the stories that were described as being told instead of just saying that stories were told. There wasn't much suspense or tactics leading up to the battle either, which honestly can get boring however I am used to them being there in these kinds of books.

      First of a trilogy. Nicely written story of a soldier training his protegee in magic powers.First paragraphWinter had come to the Frozen Frontier and with it, hunger and desperation. The autumn harvest had been meager, marred by drought and constant incursions by rival clans.Hengst, Martin (2012-12-19). The Last Swordmage (The Swordmage Trilogy) (Kindle Locations 46-47). .

    • Laura says:

      Did not finish. Could not get past the 'virginity test' in the first few pages.

    • Jesse says:

      Put it down once, but couldn't do it twice.I was looking for a new series to take my mind off of unpacking the many boxes from my move. I found it. I started reading Magic of Solendrea at lunchtime, and my lunch got extended a little bit. After emptying a few more boxes, setting up a TV set downstairs and starting to setup a computer work station, supper called. Time to continue with the story. Again, the story sucked me in and I was immersed with the land of Solendrea and the new characters tha [...]

    • Epper Marshall says:

      closer to 2.5, the story was moving along at a decent pace then started jumping around. First training she did well, later she was unable to stop him at all, then the main enemy emerged from nowhere with no warning/build up. Then they went to the capitol (abandoning the other towns?) where some of the enemies were already in the walls but then they were at the pass attacking later? Her master and her ability allows them to use magic and go fast yet somehow only one other person knows their secre [...]

    • Gramy says:

      .I really liked this story. It was very well written and compelled the reader to want to know more. There was a climatic achievement, but I was not totally overwhelmed with enough awe to rate it higher.

    • Cosme says:

      Good read.Good book to read in my free time. Good storytelling and good pace. I plan on reading the other books in this trilogy.

    • Michelle says:

      Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Shelley MA
