4 STARS: I Really Liked It

Fia Brithin is beginning an adventure.
On her first visit to the King Hanor’s palace, 16 year old Fia Brithin stumbles into a court intrigue. To keep the secret safe, the Chancelor sends her off as apprentice to a famous, and reclusive, high mountain jeweler.
…And straight into adventure.
Discovering gems with deep secrets and new friends with the same, Fia learns a whole lot more than just modeling wax. When to trust a stranger, and when not to; why not to try stealing from gem thieves; what heroism is, what royalty ought to be, and that the mountains themselves can sometimes be the greatest danger of all.
The first in a series, Jeweler’s Apprentice introduces protagonist Fia Brithin to the wide, wide world, and starts her on a journey toward adventures, and that difficult thing called growing up.

My Thoughts:
This was a nice story about a girl on an adventure. Fia is sent to be a jeweler’s apprentice in the mountains. I felt cold reading this book talking about all the snow. I’m thankful to live in Texas. 🙂

Fia meets some friends and enemies along the way. I couldn’t help but wish to know the characters on a deeper level. I felt somewhat disconnected from the side characters for some reason. I really enjoy some hint of romance in a story too so I was a little disappointed, but I know that’s just me. Maybe there will be more romance and depth to the characters in the next books of the series.

I definitely want to read the next books to find out what happens to Fia. The author shows promise with this story, and I know the next ones will be even better. I think tweens and younger teens would enjoy this book too.
