Review:Schism: The Battle for Darracia (Book 1) by:Michael Phillip Cash

The Battle for Darracia (Schism, #1)
About the Book:
On the planet Darracia, an ever-widening social gap between its inhabitants is causing turmoil that is fracturing a once peaceful world. Struggling with his identity, nineteen year old Prince V'sair must harness the power of the elusive Fireblade, the secret to a warrior's heart, in order to overcome his uncle Staf Nuen's lust for supremacy. Will the energy of the Elements guide the young prince to his true destiny or will Staf Nuen conquer Darracia? After the success of his first three books (Brood X, Stillwell, and The Hanging Tree) Michael is fulfilling a dream and creating his own epic fantasy world. Schism: The Battle for Darracia is the first book in a planned series.

My Review:
 V'sair sits among his tutor once again listening to the history of his ancestors. He thinks of all the good things he could be doing, things that could  help his people. But he has to listen to what both his parents say, and study up on the things that happened long ago. When he hears of the Fireblade, it sparks the thought of adventure in his great mind. But as he tells his parents, they tell him of the dangers and how they will forbid him from leaving the palace. Even though he feels he should follow his parents rules, something in him wants to fined the Fireblade. Though he needs to take heed to his parents warnings, he heads out into the great unknown to find the Fireblade.

 Reminda hates to know her son, feels useless, and less of a man. She is willing to help him with anything his heart desires but finding the Fireblade. Her son scares her with the ways he acts, and she is often worried he will do something stupid. But then again she thinks it would be good for him to go on an adventure, to take time by himself and do something good. But she is frightened her son will travel to find the Fireblade, and she will never see them again.
