Magician: Apprentice

Book 1, Riftwar Cycle: The Riftwar Saga

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A worthy pupil . . . A dangerous quest

To the forest on the shore of the Kingdom of the Isles, the orphan Pug came to study with the master magician Kulgan. But though his courage won him a place at court and the heart of a lovely Princess, he was ill at ease with the normal ways of wizardry.

Yet Pug's strange sort of magic would one day change forever the fates of two worlds. For dark beings from another world had opened a rift in the fabric of spacetime to being again the age-old battle between the forces of Order and Chaos.

Praise for Magician: Apprentice

“Totally gripping . . . A fantasy of epic scope, fast-moving action and vivid imagination.”The Washington Post Book World

“Most exciting . . . A very worthy and absorbing addition to the fantasy field.”—Andre Norton

“The best new fantasty in years . . . has a chance of putting its aughor firmly on the trone next to Tolkien—and keeping him there.”The Dragon Magazine

About time...

I've been waiting for years for this book too make it in ebook form. All I can say is about freakin time! Great book!

Magic and Politics

I read this story in paperback form back when it first came out. My reaction then was an excellent story! Rereading it has not changed my opinion! Pug, Tomas and even Roland make an interesting group of friends. Pug is apprenticed to a magician, Tomas to the guards and Roland is a squire. Their relationship to begin with is not a smooth one but they do end up being friends.
In the course of learning magic Pug and Tomas come across a ship from another place. Learn about rifts, magic, and in this case a lot about politics. We have Tsunami from another world who want to conquer Midkemia. Why? Read and find out. Enjoy the action, romance, the humor and lots of plots twists!
