This was my first contact with fantasy fiction apart from the fairy tales my grandmothers and aunt told me as a child. I was absolutely enamored by the book and tried for a long time to get my hands on the sequel but somehow could never find it.

Aug 08, Mike Behlke rated it really liked it. I read this book in 7th grade, I had found it in my jr. I remember liking it a lot. I liked the idea that these characters had special powers, like the X-men. I found this book, again, in I re-read it then, when I was 23 and found it to be a short and easy read, obviously, since it is gears toward a younger audience. I never read the sequal.

Feb 28, Andrew Obrigewitsch rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , young-adult. I read this when I was a kid and loved it. It was the first fantasy book I read on my own. So it has a special place in my heart, I'm sure if I where to reread it I would not like it as much, like maybe a one or two star. But for a kid it's great stuff I I can find a copy I will get it for my son.

This book is probably kind of crappy, but I sure loved it when I was a kid and it's taken me years to work enough google magic to find the title and author again. May 21, Bill Hice rated it really liked it. Read it in sixth grade. Probably not as good now.

Aug 08, Aaron rated it liked it. For what is is young adult fantasy it's pretty good. Jan 05, Noor Jahangir rated it liked it. I have fond memories of this book from my teen years. I know I liked it then, so I scored it 3 stars. Can't remember the plot and haven't read it recently, so the points are just for mere nostalgia. From what i can remember 16 years ago this was great. Kids with cool powers and evil monsters for them to overcome.

In the dungeons-and-dragons tradition, a competently written adventure with nonstop action and little to say beyond its In the dungeons-and-dragons tradition, a competently written adventure with nonstop action and little to say beyond its primary level. Sole survivor of the destruction of his woodland village by the regional lord, Mephtik the Poisoner , Jarral 12 is caught, marked with the dread weapon, and told he will die in agony a month hence at the rising of the full moon. He falls in with three people of Talent: Archer, who is a giant woman of marvelous aim; Scythe, who appears blind but actually ""sees"" with supernatural accuracy; and Mandra, who can make forms seem to change. Supported from a distance by Cryl--a wizard who possesses the true magic--they journey to Mephtik's city and engage in a mighty battle in which Mephtik, a mighty demon Flameroc , and the sword are all destroyed, thus saving Jarral who proves to have the most important talent of all in the nick of time. At book's end, they are setting out on a greater quest, to rescue Cryl and challenge the Enemy--Mephtik and Flameroc's evil master. Though not sensational, the story consists almost entirely of the contest against unmitigated evil, vividly described.
