Jeweler's Apprentice

Book Details
Author: E. Kaiser
Release Date: December 2011
Publisher: Hearth Books
Genre: YA Fiction

"Jeweler's Apprentice, is a light-fantasy adventure for teens. The shy, bookish heroine is thrust out on the first step toward the adventure that awaits, and growing up."

That's growing up for you. Things are never the same again, and that part always hurts, Fia. Don't try to think it shouldn't. Every time something changes, something hurts. It's the natural way of things. But there are parts that are good about it too. It is right to grieve for things you've lost, or given up. But remember even when it's hard that it's not all sad. 

And that is what happens to Fia. She is growing up...but she is also starting a grand adventure.

After she stumbles upon a secret she is whisked off to become the jeweler's apprentice and just as she is getting the hang of it she is sent on a rescue mission where she will tangle with strangers, thieves, and all sorts of dangers.

But she will also find heroes and royalty and family who was once thought of as lost.

Yes, growing up can be hard, but it can be wonderful too.

One of my favorite passages:

You spend too much time here. Too much strain on your nerves. You need fresh air, get out and get some exercise. Clean your thoughts out and free up your mind...Get up then! Come along...Learn too fast and you'll not learn well.


About the Author
E. Kaiser was born into a family of readers, and got started on storytelling around the age of four when her older siblings prompted her into recounting an absolutely ridiculous account of a parallel childhood. It was good for the family's general entertainment, and she discovered the thrill of making people laugh.At the age of seven her mother read the Hobbit aloud, and a fascination with beautiful fantasy was born. At nine she came to the decision that she wanted to be a writer, and set to reading rabidly to learn the art. At thirteen she attempted her first novel, and it was eaten in a computer's demise.
Afterward, during her teenage years she tried very hard at various times to stop writing all together.

Not succeeding, she at last gave in to her addiction, and wrote "for fun".

  1. Thanks so much, Shauna! I'm so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed Fia's first adventure so well!
    Loved the quote you chose to spotlight, it's one of those "quiet moments" that I really enjoyed putting in. Glad it resonated with you!!
    I'll be waiting with bated breath to hear what you think of Traitor's Knife... if you loved Jeweler's Apprentice I think you'll be even more excited about TK!
    Again, thanks for reviewing my books, and I've got the "all warm & fuzzies" that you liked JA so much!
