Wow. Just wow.
Description: She survived a trial year at the Academy of Magic, but that was the easy part…
Now sixteen-year-old Ryiah is an apprentice of Combat, her school’s most notorious faction. When she finishes, she will be a war mage, but in order to do so, she has to survive four years traveling across Jerar, training with a master she hates, her old nemesis, Priscilla, and Prince Darren, her sometimes-rival sometimes… more?
Ry’s new apprenticeship is nothing like what she prepared for. War is on the horizon and her lessons aren’t just for practice anymore.
It’s time to fight.

When I read First Year, I was really impressed. However, sometimes the following books just aren’t as good. Luckily, that is not the case with Apprentice. I absolutely loved this book. It grabbed me and refused to let go just like the first one. I sat down and read the entire thing in one day. Once again staying up half the night reading just so I could know what was going to happen. I could not put it down!
My one major complain with this book is how fast time moves. This book covers the time span of four years. It sometimes made it hard to follow because it would mention so,etching that happen two years ago and I was like shit I just read that an hour ago. It felt a lot like binge watching a tv show.
With that complain though, I feel like I didn’t miss anything. She covered every year very well. She made a routine for each year and stuck with it. There were lots of action-packed scenes that really helped me stay invested in the story.
Ryiah and Darren pissed me off to no end but they weren’t the only ones. This book picks up a few months after the first one ends and instant throws a pile of shit at the readers heart. The heartbreak and shit throwing doesn’t stop until the last page. If you like to feel the emotions of a book, this is the one for you!
I highly recommend this book and this series to everyone!
