    1. What a breath of fresh air! After reading some poorly written stories, I was excited to stumble upon this wonderful, magical and excellent expression of imagination. Highly recommended!

    2. I was going to give this book a solid 4-5 stars until the second to last chapter happened and then I was pulling my hair out in frustration at the absolute idiocy of Samuel. First, he stands idly by having a conversation as Ash is unlocking the Argum Stone, Samuel says multiple times that whoever controls the Argum Stone would be unstoppable, so why is he standing around waiting for the guy who he wants to kill to unlock it and get its power? it makes no sense. Secondly, when Samuel and Ash are [...]

    3. One thing I've noticed about fantasy novels these days is that they tend to be incredibly dense. I understand a lot of world building tends to go into these novels, especially when set in other worlds but our own, but I tend to find that there's just far too much world building than what I like. Furthermore, a lot of authors tend to include scenes that don't advance to plot. I'm not saying this is a bad thing- I don't want heaps of never-ending plot, but I find it really starts to drag the novel [...]

    4. Here is a story of magic, of demons and of a boy who seems to be a lot more than he looks. The Young Magican is an excellent first up book in Michael Foster's The Legacy Trilogy. In this novel Michael Foster sets up the rules for his realm, the backdrop and the various warring parties all while establishing a central character that grows through the book, that makes mistakes and learns valuable lessons. There are many magicians but only a few who can see the magic of others, can understand how t [...]

    5. It is extremely rare for me to not bother finishing a book, but this one I just can't even force myself any longer. I'm about 60% through it and holy cow, how much more can you drag this out.The book is way way way too long. The character development is beyond tedious. The time line jumps with no real clue for the reader where you are. One moment the lead character is a young boy, then suddenly he's maybe a teenager and then you're not sure exactly how old he is.There's so much extraneous detail [...]

    6. I found this book quite slow to start with, but the story gradually developed in pace, and the action is full on by the end. The world setting reminded me somewhat of Raymond Feist's Magician series. The lead character, Samuel, is likeable, and the supporting characters are well-developed.Even though the stage is being set for the next two novels, the book could have been more heavily edited, and about 20% shorter, without losing any of the important plot developments. Foster's writing is easy t [...]

    7. I loved the prose, it was engaging. The plot left a little to be desired, as the complication was only hinted at about 40% of the way through the (long) book. Despite the lacking direction of the plot, however, reading that first 40% was easy, and enjoyable enough, and once I hit the plot I couldn't put it down. There were a few typos here and there, but unless you are a pedant for such matters this book was fantastic.

    8. chachubieit is like other fantasy books yet it's imaginings are superbe protagonist seems a bit naive . so I give him a b because there are other parts to a person and he has those other parts. again, his perseverance is suspect. even wit magic how long can a guy hold on? all in all I liked it.

    9. Good beginning yet midway through the story loses its appeal.Good story until about 60% into the book, then it becomes dull and I lost all interest. Shame, the beginning had promise.

    10. Very very good.Not perfectbut good with lots of verys.To be fair, pacing is spotty in places, but it is certainly fresh fantasy, and books 2 and 3 are incrementally better.Yescommended.

    11. pulled my emotions &drew me in-a tiny bit slow at first but picks up within a few chapters. i was a little frustrated at times, the characters seemed to repeat silly mistakes but well they were young teens\adults. i liked the dark feel to this book & am looking forward to reading both books 2 & 3.

    12. Entertaining read. I am reading the second book now. I will provide a more detailed review of the series after I am done reading all three books.

    13. Orphan farmboy gets taken in by horrible people, happens to be the chosen one. The cliché premise aside, what killed the book for me was the unrealistic dialogue and boring narrative voice.
