Young, almost ranger finds he can do magic and is being escorted to the Tower for schooling, when he gets ambushed . . . more would be telling . . . ..
Note: Tower of Sorcery contains some graphic violence and harsh language.
Jun 30, 2013: Straight-up sword and sorcery young adult fiction. It’s a bit exposition heavy on the first page, but the story is well on its way – though at a fairly sedate pace – by the second chapter.
The plain page format – where the text goes all the way across the screen – is not the easiest to read on a computer screen. This, more than the story content, made it a "tough slog" and discouraged me from reading further online. By comparison, I note how most web fiction sites are designed with a sidebar (e.g. the table of contents) down the side of the page taking up space, and somehow this helps greatly with readibility.
There are some simple solutions (http://www.readability.com/, print it out) so this story is still worth a look if you can’t get enough of that sword and sorcery goodness with werekind thrown in.

Apr 23, 2016: This is the first book in an amazing series, sometimes called the Firestaff Series. Or the Tarrin Kael Chronicals.

I would however HIGHLY recommend that you read the entire [more . . .]
Jan 9, 2014: Tower of sorcery is a great read. I loved it. tarrin is likable and well thought out. as the story grows it takes a darker tone. this doesn’t detract from the story at all as I thought it might. it opens up into a truly magic world with epic battles. lovers of fantasy, I call on you all to have a look.
