Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Daven Carrickson grew up as a beggar in the filthy alleys beneath the shadows of the palace. He’s the son of a known thief, disgraced and despised. His only real talent is his ability with a sword, and his only real chance at finding honor or a home is a desperate dream of joining the King’s Guard. Then Daven receives a new future when Master Claighan invites him to study magic at the Academy. The wizard offers to make him into a new kind of soldier: a swordsman equally skilled with forged blades and mystic forces. It only helps that Daven has no home, no family, and nothing left to lose. But when conspiring forces destroy the wizard’s plans, Daven finds himself wanted for treason and murder. Hunted by a great black beast of a dragon, caught between the King’s Guard and a rebel force led by a rogue wizard, Daven’s only hope of surviving is to become more than he’s ever dreamed possible.

Mana recenzija/My review

Karaļvalstij draud briesmas, un, kurš vēl būtu labāks kandidāts glābēja lomai, ja ne bārenis Deivens. Deivens pats ir apveltīts ar labām prasmēm zobenu cīņā, tad nu atliek iemācīt maģiju. Tomēr šajā ziņā, iespējams, traucē viņa pagātne, konkrētāk tēva nodarbošanās. Bet tikai retais uztver Deivenu nopietni, un savā apmācības laikā viņš iemanto nevienu vien ienaidnieku. Maģijas ziņā interesanti iesaistīts pūķis vārdā Vechernyvetr :D

Draudi, kas ‘’duras acī’’ ir no dumpinieku puses, bet šķietami mistiskākos un pat bīstamākos(pūķu atmoda)neviens nemaz nevēlas ņemt vērā, un, dzirdot tos pieminam, vien nosmej. Tomēr šajā pirmajā triloģijas grāmatā pūķiem pievērsta mazāka uzmanība un arī dižu episkumu nesajutu, kas drusku lika vilties.

Sajūsmu par darbu nomāc neliela notikumu paredzamība ar galvenā varoņa panākumiem, kā arī varoņu attīstība samērā neliela, turklāt atlīdzība par paveikto diezgan klišejiska. Varbūt ‘’Taming Fire’’ kalpo kā iesildīšanās un sagatave nākamajām daļām.

                                                                                                                                                

Kingdom is on a brink of war with rebels and who could be a better saver and hero than orphan Daven. Daven has good swordsman skills but a lacks magic. In case of magic what possibly distracts him is his past and if to be precise then his dad’s occupation.

The threat from rebels seems to graver but probably the bigger one comes from dragons and their awakening. Although there isn’t much attention to them in this first book, also I didn’t fell epicness. Only few consider Daven seriously and during his learning he gains some enemy and just one true friend.

What drowns excitement is predictability for the outcome which is a bit cliché; also there isn’t big character growth. Maybe ‘’Taming Fire’’ is more like a warm-up for second and third book.
