Into the Labyrinth
Mage Errant • Book 1
Hugh of Emblin is, so far as he’s concerned, the worst student that the Academy at Skyhold has ever seen. He can barely cast any spells at all, and those he does cast tend to fail explosively. If that wasn’t bad enough, he’s also managed to attract the ire of the most promising student of his year- who also happens to be the nephew of a king. Hugh has no friends, no talent, and definitely doesn’t expect a mage to choose him as an apprentice at all during the upcoming Choosing.
When a very unusual mage does choose him as apprentice, however, his life starts to take a sharp turn for the better. Now all he has to worry about is the final test for the first years⏤being sent into the terrifying labyrinth below Skyhold.
“This was wonderful, with all the same sense of wonder and whimsey as Hogwarts or Narnia but the breath and expansive world building that you normally only see in high fantasy like Eversea. There were diverse and richly described cultures, and the magic system was new and interesting. All in all an entertaining read, and I am seconds from downloading the sequel.”
