“What I am about to say is something many of you have heard before, but it bears repeating...” The sorcerer walked down the central aisle while addressing his pupils. “What you are here to learn is how to master the gift of magic. Although it is a rare and powerful gift, it has to be cultivated, refined, and tended to. Above all, you must learn how to use it properly.” He stopped at the end of the aisle and turned. His eyes swept the room and he held out his hands.

Set in a world of high fantasy, Jarvis: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice tells the exciting story of a lowly goat herder’s son who, to everyone’s surprise, is selected to learn the secrets of magic from Harnigel, a powerful and enigmatic sorcerer. As Jarvis comes of age and starts to understand his own untapped potential, he also begins to unravel a dark and perilous mystery. Taken under Harnigel’s wing, Jarvis will have to learn quickly... his very life may depend on it.

This young adult novel was written by Jesper Ejsing, an accomplished illustrator and author probably best known for painting all of the covers for the popular Descent: Journeys in the Dark and Runebound line of board game releases from Fantasy Flight Games. Jesper, who lives in Copenhagen, Denmark with his wife Lea and two sons Asbjørn (God of Bears) and Bjarke (Little Bear), has written nine books in Danish. Jarvis: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is his first novel translated into English.

Now, this goes for the Danish edition but...

... since I live in Denamrk I have the privilege of knowing this author's book very well, and while I can't say much about the english translation, I can say that if it's half as good as the original, any fantasy reader should probably find it worthwhile. It has some very interesting ideas and concepts, a well-functioning plot, and some really unexpected turns. Not to mention that for all who love the traditional idea of wizards in roleplaying games, this is probably quite the inspiration and an even greater story.

Enjoy.
