Synopses & Reviews
Dayven has passed the test he wanted most desperately to fail -- he's been proven to have the powers of a wizard.
He had promised never to become one of the deceitful, disloyal sorcerers who believe in nothing and alter people's true destinies -- but now he has no choice. Thrown into an apprenticeship with a roguish wizard, Dayven discovers that loyalty and trust are never simple, and wizards are more deceptive than he could ever imagine.
The path that was once clear -- his friendships, his future, his destiny -- is now shadowed with dangerous twists and turns, and the world he knows must change forever.
“Right and wrong turn out to be more complicated than a wizards apprentice supposes in this ruminative fantasy.” Kirkus Reviews
“Politics and intrigue, honor and friendship, are [Hilari Bell]s real subjects.” Starred Review KLIATT
About the Author
Hilari Bell recently retired from a career as a librarian to pursue writing full time. Her favorite books are fantasy, science fiction, and mystery. Not surprisingly, these are the kinds of books she writes very well herself, often combining genres when it serves her story. Her growing list of titles includes The Prophecy, The Wizard Test, The Goblin Wood, and A Matter of Profit. Perhaps a starred review of the wizard test in KLIATT describes Hilari's unique talent best: "Politics and intrigue, honor and friendship are Bell's real subjects, and her novels are thought provoking as well as exciting reads." Hilari lives in her hometown of Denver, Colorado.
