I just read the look inside - it's not exactly well written is it? The cover is appalling. I've not read harry potter, but from what i know, and the first few paragraphs, this looks like a sub-par rip off of a sub-par rip off.

If you want to read about young magicians the is only one series to read...

Even more, it's a rip-off of Harry Potter AND a rip-off of Percy Jackson. Except the others had correct punctuation on the first page.

9.99 for a paperback with a cover like that, and no product information on the product page. I think some re-thinking regarding the marketing is in order (as well as some editing). You never know, some people might like it.

Totally agree about Ursula Le Guin.

The unwilling apprentice of Ada Spindle, (Witch) Vol 1 (Ada Spindle,(witch)) hi, i read a book last night which i found intresting and i think you may enjoy. its takes a while until you actually meet ada but the chapters leading up to it are intresting aswell. the author has captured what witches are like and has a good knowledge of the tools and herbs which would of been used. before you read it i suggest you read the blurb and the three chapters first.

If the prose is as badly written as the 'product description', I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. However, I don't have access to any of the book, so I can't comment.
Suggest you leave a review on the Amazon page if it is that good.

>>If the prose is as badly written as the 'product description'<<

It is.

Try the Dresden Files; Jim Butcher (author) and or the Nightside series; Simon R Green.
Both "Urban Fantasy" and worth the effort.

Brisingamen This is a brand new book out and well worth a read - it fits your criteria by the looks of things. Has a totally fictitious world, lots of elements of the past too, some romance stuff in there and plenty of excitement. Good luck in your search for new stuff.

A writer that I have really enjoyed in the last few years is Juliet E McKenna, she has about 3 series out all set on the same world. The Thief's Gamble is the first book of the first series. They are intelligent (without being pompous), funny, have engaging characters and good plots - well worth a read.

Try "The Dragonbone Chair" by Tad Williams (magical swords, quests, and darkness spreading across the land sort of thing - lots of fun) and anything by Sherri S Tepper - the latter will definately blow your mind.
