Mazion Tyl: The Apprentice

By Zach Halteman (epic146)

Scifi / Adventure

Blurb

Mazion Tyl is a poor scavenger on the Forest Moon of Endor. He lives a lonely life with no parents to guide him. His only friend is a Wookie named Noss. As Salvatore, Avin Dimordo, and Karik Bane exile to Endor for training and in hiding of the First Order, they meet Mazion, and a new journey awakens.

1; Prologue

Endor really blows. For instance, I’m always getting raided by those annoying Ewoks. They keep stealing my berries and bread! It’s so aggravating. Ahem, um, anyway. The name’s Mazion. Mazion Tyl. Routine Scavenger and Wookie Whisperer. Hehe. Wookie Whisperer. Anyhow, I live here on Endor. I live in a Wookie colony. I, kinda, have no parents. They sorta left me here, then they died, so... Yeah, I’m all alone.

I used to be in touch with my grandpa for a little, but he seemed to have disappeared. Well, I do have Noss. He’s my childhood friend. I met him when I was dropped off at age one. We got along quite well. And now I’m stuck here, 13 and an orphan. Sheesh. Honestly, there’s too MUCH oxygen here that the trees don’t help at all. I just hope... One day... Someone will find me, and treat me like a human, not a Wookie. Here’s hoping...


Dakarus looked out of his small hut on Endor. He had a pastry in his hand made by him. It was sort of sweet, but the sugar on Endor lacks sweetness compared to Yavin IV's. 'A pity.' he thinks.

Unbeknownst to Mazion, Dakarus had been living on Endor silently watching him grow and get taken care of by Wookies since his parents were killed by smugglers. Dakarus, the father of Mazion's father, lives in a different village.

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...
