From the Vault: Apprentices

Chosen by their thirteenth year
To follow in a master’s steps
They wave farewell to youth and home
While preparing for their tasks
Some will sweat among the anvils
While others ache within the woods
Many learn of herbs to cook
Or heal those that fall to pain
Warriors and thieves will grow
From those that find these paths
The lucky ones will find the tower
Where magic is their trade
All will grow to be true masters
And earn apprentices of their own

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
