    One thought on “The Wizard’s Promise”

    1. I do admit that there are times I do judge a book by its cover I am easily attracted to vibrant, well drawn or well edited layouts, and if one caught my eye, you sure can bet that it also caught my full attention, and I am likely to check it out rather than walk pass it That s pretty much what happened between me and The Wizard s Promise in a nutshell I mean, dude DUDE Look at that beauty It totally gives off that Magical Fantasy aura, and not to mention, the ocean like colors give it such a co [...]

    4. Initial Thoughts While I enjoyed this book, it didn t have the same impression upon me as the author s earlier books The Assassin s Curse and The Pirate s Wish I felt frustrated for the main character who was led on a wild goose chase without anyone telling her why she had to go The Review I picked up The Wizard s Promise because I ve enjoyed other books by this author and this book takes place in the same world as The Assassin s Curse and The Pirate s Wish In fact, the main character Hanna is n [...]

    7. Perhaps if I had of read The Assassins Curse duology before I read The Wizards Promise, I would have understood things a little better I didn t realize that this was a spin off continuation of another duology, and so I felt this book was lacking A LOT of backstory to the magical history of their world which was probably explained in The Assassins Curse Anyway, I quite liked The Wizards Promise, I thought it was fun and it gave me the warm fuzzies I really liked Hanna she felt like a very real ch [...]

    8. Hanna wants nothing than to become a full fledged wind witch But for the time being, she s stuck being an apprentice on Kojur s fishing boat What was supposed to be a quick 3 day trip turns into an adventure kidnapping north You see, Kojur, as it turns out, has secrets Don t we all Secrets that make him decide to take kidnap, force Hanna to stay with him and sail north without any information or promise of safety They pick up another witch who also has, wait for it, secrets This adventure kidna [...]

    9. I like Cassandra Rose Clarke a lot, and although her YA books aren t as good to my mind, anyway as The Mad Scientist s Daughter, they re enjoyable She creates interesting worlds that aren t your typical run of the mill fantasy worlds, with female characters at the centre who aren t limited in any way by silly sexism carried over from our world We get several female characters, of varying importance, who do the same sorts of things as the men of their world, which is refreshing.Some of the commen [...]

    10. It has my name in it OF COURSE I HAVE TO READ IT.Kidding Sort of.I adored the author s previous duology, but unfortunately The Wizard s Promise didn t quite measure up.Make no mistake, I still enjoyed it strong female characters, action and adventure, magic and mayhem I also love the way the author captures life at sea, and the moods of the ocean.I did get quite annoyed that the main character was kept in the dark for so long, particularly when withholding information put her life in danger Not [...]

    11. The Wizard s Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke is the first in a new duology set in the same world as The Assassin s Curse and The Pirate s Wish The Wizard s Promise tells the story of a young witch named Hanna who finds herself thrown into the dangerous world of the Mists despite every attempt she makes to just get home While Hanna had always been hoping for adventure, this wasn t exactly how she planned it, though it never is Hanna s mother served on the pirate ship of a certain pirate queen th [...]

    12. Cassandra Rose Clarke is a very talented author She has the ability to create wonderful, fantastical worlds in far off places where magical adventures can unfold I love the way she paints beautiful images with her words Her use of adjectives is so impressive, in her book characters scamper , items are snatched and objects are perched , nothing is left absent of great description These are the reason I wanted to read her latest book, The Wizard s Promise This book is set in the same world at her [...]

    13. An advance copy of this novel was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This review can also be found at The Starry Eyed Revue.I am a super huge fan of Cassandra Rose Clarke s The Assassin s Curse duology It s fast paced and full of awesome characters some human and some not I expected much of the same from this first book in the Hanna duology, especially with this series being set in the same world But CRC managed to make Hanna s story completely different by setting it in [...]

    14. The Wizard s Promise is a typical Cassandra Rose Clarke book, filled with an imaginative world, an intriguing cast of characters and a lovely writing style The mixed reviews that the book has received were a little off putting, but I m happy to say that I was very much involved in Hanna s story as Ananna s.I m always amazed by the creativity and imagination that Ms Clarke clearly possesses Her writing is vivid, bright and full of life, making you feel as though you are part of the story as well [...]

    15. Review also posted at Ja itam, a ti The Assassin s Curse is one of those series I have been seeing around for years but I haven t gotten to read it just yet So when I got the opportunity to be part of this tour I was over the moon Now I see that I should have read the first series first but well I never do things in order anyway Here we meet Hanna, a young girls who has heard such amazing adventurous stories from her mother and adventures are all she dreams of while living in the small village a [...]

    16. I received this book as an eARC from Angry Robot Strange Chemistry on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really liked Cassandra Rose Clarke s other fantasy duology consisting of The Assassin s Curse and The Pirate s Wish The world she created is full of interesting places and people I love how the magic is such a mystery In this first book in a new duology, magic is at a forefront since the protagonist has some wind powers herself I like the elemental nature of the magic and how compl [...]

    17. The first part in a companion duology to The Assassin s Curse series, The Wizard s Promise takes us far up north where it is icy and grim Magically talented Hanna named for Ananna, heroine of the The Assassin s Curse series A tenuous but important narrative link , daughter of dusky ex pirate and an insular North Sea Norse archetype finds herself apprenticed to a dull fisherman Or is she Do all YA heroines have to be a explosively whiny b blind to their own ability and c easily duped Perhaps not, [...]

    18. Review at SmudgedI received a free copy of this book on netgalley in return for an honest review and quotes taken from this uncorrected version, subject to change in the final edition Cassandra Clarke should be giving half of her royalties to the book cover artist of this book I get caught grabbing books off shelves and adding them to my To Read list on based on covers all the time Lately, I ve fallen into a pit of despair based on these choices There are a lot of really cool covers that blow me [...]

    19. I got an ARC through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review A few things are liable to change in this book by the time it is officially published I can t say I didn t like this novel, but I also know it won t leave me with a lasting impression either I reckon this is partly because a lot of time in it is spent on sea, travelling on fishing boats, and nothing really happens There were a few events now and then, but they felt somewhat distanciated, as if they had been put here for something t [...]

    20. I got this book to review through NetGalley It is the 1st book in the Hannah Duology It is set in the same world as The Assassin s Curse, but occurs a generation later I didn t like this book as much as The Assassin s Curse series It was a decent fantasy but slow at parts and the characters were not all that engaging.Hannah wants nothing than to study to be a witch, instead she is apprenticed to the fisherman Kojur Kojur is grumpy and apparently has secrets of his own Instead of their normal 3 [...]

    21. 3 and a half stars.This book is set in the same world as Cassandra Rose Clarke s books from The Assassin s Curse series I loved that series I loved the characters, I loved the writing style and I loved the setting As such, I was extremely happy when I learned that The Wizard s Promise could revisit these places However, I have to say, it felt short.This book tells the story of Hannah, an untrained witch who is a fisherman s apprentice, for a guy named Kolur She is obligated to join Kolur in a fi [...]

    22. All Hanna Euli wants is to become a proper witch, but unfortunately she s stuck as an apprentice to a grumpy fisherman When their boat gets caught up in a mysterious storm and blown wildly off course, Hanna finds herself further away from home than she s ever been before As she tries to get back, she learns there may be to her apprentice master than she realized, especially when a mysterious, beautiful, and very non human boy begins following her through the ocean, claiming that he needs Hanna [...]

    23. Originally posted at All About BooksWith The Wizard s Promise I gave Cassandra Rose Clark a second chance after I DNFed her book The Mad Scientist s Daughter I wanted to give her another chance with a different kind of story because it wasn t the writing style in general I had problems with, but the story Turned out Cassandra Rose Clarke and me just don t work out Even though I wasn t tempted to give this one up too, I didn t enjoy it a lot.One thing that bothered me a lot was its secretiveness [...]

    24. I absolutely adored Clarke s The Assassin s Curse duology The world she created was so vivid and multi faceted that I wanted to curl up and sail along the high seas with Ananna I was ecstatic when I found out there was going to be a second duology set in the same world The Wizard s Promise follows Hanna whose mother sailed under Ananna who Hanna is named after That is where the similarities between Hanna and Ananna end though Hanna is definitely her own person She wants to study magic but is app [...]

    25. I loved this book It s from the same world as The Assassin s Curse and The Pirate s Wish, it was nice to go back into the world and read of it with a new set of characters I liked Hanna and Isolfr but I thought that Ananna and Naji would at least make a small cameo or something I was totally disappointed when I learned that they were only mentioned in the stories that Hanna s mother told her about her being a pirate and being aboard the Nadir It was sad to know that the both of them were alread [...]

    26. thedailyprophecy 2This duology is a spin off for The assassin s curse and The pirate s wish, two books I enjoyed a lot This story has the same feeling to it and it has the same problem the middle part is sometimes a bit boring.Hanna is an apprentice for fisherman Kolur She can practice her wind magic on their trips, but this time they end up in a magical storm and they are blown to a place far from their hometown Kolur adds another woman to their group, also a wind magician, and he sets sail for [...]

    27. If your main character is bored for a goodly portion of the book, then there is a strong likelihood your reader will be too The beginning was okay, the conclusion quite gripping, but the middle section felt rather like a drag Sailing More sailing Sailing in which the main character had no idea what was going on and since it was written in first person all we had to work with were her lack of duties and confusion Also, to a point, her helplessness as she was whisked away across the seas and into [...]

    28. Nothing actually happens.I feel like Wizard s Promise is essentially the LONGEST Introduction Ever We know who and what s coming, yet in the mean time there s a lot of her asking questions that eventually started to feel like, ARE WE THERE YET She wasn t asking that, of course It just felt like she was thus, me wanting to smack her There s some mention of the awesome that was Ananna as well as the mist and the magical, yet for the most part we have Hannah At first it s her and what she does not [...]

    29. This is the first book in the Hanna duology by Cassandra Rose Clarke, who also wrote the Assassin s Curse duology.Hanna s always wanted to be a witch, but instead she apprentices a fisherman, which isn t really all that exciting For a long time she s dreamed of going on an adventure, just like Ananna, the famous pirate she is named after So when her apprentice master decides to leave for foreign waters, taking her along without asking her, she might just get what she wanted all along.I picked up [...]
