This review is from: Young Warlock (Kindle Edition)

And I mean that in a good way. Be forewarned, there is a religious/spiritual theme in this novel and Mr Bridle does a great job blending it with a magic and monster filled mythos.But it is not preachy. It’s subtle. In my opinion, the overall plot of this book and series, is a religious good v Evil, God v Devil. Book starts out with the One banishing 2 angels who have fallen. From there to a fantasy setting with goblins, dwarves, elves, warlocks, undead, epic.

Backcoverpromotions rated it 4 of 5 stars A book that completely holds your attention and keeps you guessing. An amazing tale of an amazing wizard searching for answers and finding much, much more!

Daisy White rated it 5 of 5 stars Very dark, fairly violent, but really absorbing. The descriptions of the characters and lands are beautifully drawn without becoming boring, and the story moves along nicely. The ending is one that kind of sticks in your head…

A truly great start to a series. Can’t wait for Fire and Thorn to see what Dekor gets into next.

I am reading my way through the free fantasy books for kindle and if I like a freebie, I’ll go on and buy the rest of the series. This book is the best plot, characterisation and concept that I have read recently, (and I read a lot)! The correct use of English is crucial to my enjoyment of a book and this one ticked all my boxes. Subterfuge, social issues, religious freedom, dragons and magic. I definitely want to read where the very real characters head to next. For young adults and oldies like me this author has to be added to the top of the pile.


Review by: Marko Jezernik on Jan. 15, 2015 : This title really surprised me with great story and characters. It’s fantasy at it’s best. It made me want to assemble my old D&D crew and play a campaign or two. Read it! You wont regret it.

Review by: Piper Westwood on July 28, 2013 : I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel. I’m not usually one for fantasy, but I was intrigued by the plot and gave it a try. The young wizard, Dekor, is a wizard who has a great amount of desire for power, for knowledge, a thirst for the ability to prove his worth and to be more than what he is seen as. This leads him on a journey that has far reaching consequences and that begins an epic fantasy story with Dekor and his wizardry at that heart of it.

Mathew Bridle manages to weave a story that will pull you in and captivate in you in turn as he builds a world where magic, dragons, undead hordes, elves, dwarfs and more pieces together a novel that will quite literally put a spell on you.

The Eccentric Writer

Young Warlock is a wonderful fantasy filled with many different creatures such as warlocks, trolls, demons, goblins, dragons, etc. The details of these creatures let the reader vividly visualize them. The actions and details of the characters are extremely vivid. The storyline is exhilarating as the story unfolds and centers around the young warlock, Dekor. The reader learns that the fate of everyone lies in the hands of the young warlock and his unborn child.
