Rune of the Apprentice by Jamison Stone #BookReview

 
 
In a world where magic, technology, and nature have merged, the few who can control Runes hold dominance over all of creation. All believe that Aleksi, a sixteen-year-old orphan, was blessed to be born with a Rune embedded in his palm, but that s only because they don t know the truth Aleksi s Rune is so powerful it s killing him.
Asura, a brutal emperor who uses Runes to conquer entire continents, will stop at nothing to kill Aleksi and claim the boy s power for his own. With Aleksi s Rune burning its way through his body and assassins hunting his every step, his survival depends on discerning ally from enemy and learning to tame the competing forces of light and dark within.
With the burden of his rune haunting his days and the prophetic whispers of a young captive priestess illuminating his nights, Aleksi will be able to unravel the mysteries of his past, rescue the girl in his dreams, and challenge the most powerful warlord the world has ever known only if the one thing keeping him alive his Rune does not kill him first."

When I saw that the prologue was 7 pages I got really worried!!  But after the story started I was happily surprised.  This one is so much more than just a runaway apprentice.  It is a story about destine, magic, pirates, and spaceships!  This world that the author has created leaps off the pages and drags you.  I did feel that parts of it were a little confusing.  Its very complex in parts. As well as the words the youth being used many times.   Gods, magic, and more await the reader! 

The characters were great, each had their own voices and had great depth.  This one ends on a killer cliffhanger so be warned!!  I really can’t wait for the next one!!
