A Call to Arms: Book One of the Chronicles of Arden (English Edition) Kindle版
His parents are dead, his sister is missing, and he's been left the sole provider for his two younger brothers. With a war brewing in the east and no guarantee of surviving another brutal winter, Gib's life is plagued by uncertainty. To make matters worse, he suddenly finds himself uprooted from his home and drafted into the army.
Forced to leave his siblings behind, Gib reports to Silver City, where he enrolls in the legendary Academy of Arden. An outsider and misfit, Gib struggles to blend in among the highborn city folk. His charming candor eventually wins him a handful of friends—an enigmatic mage trainee with a secret, a young girl who has defied tradition by joining the military, and a prince looking to escape his stifling life. But his new-found comrades may not be able to help when Gib alone overhears a traitorous plot—a scheme so horrible that if seen to fruition, all of Arden will suffer for it. It's up to Gib to convince the High Council of Arden to act, to stop the terrible danger, before it's too late.

A Call to Arms is about an impoverished boy named Gib. Gib works on his family’s farm, struggling to support his younger brothers, but when he finds himself drafted into the army, he has to leave his brothers behind and travel into the city. While training to become a sentinel, Gib meets a delightful cast of characters, all of which I grew attached to while I was reading, especially Joel and Kezra (I really could identify with their individual plights).
Gib stumbles around his new environment, often times making hilarious blunders as he learns how to live among the highborn citizens of Silver City. The authors of A Call to Arms did a good job of getting into Gib’s head and showing the reader exactly what he was feeling. Everything Gib experienced, I felt like I was there with him.
Overall, the book was a great read. I loved the characters, the plot was interesting and wasn’t at all what I was expecting from an “epic fantasy” novel (it wasn’t your typical “let’s go save the entire world from this horrible evil” story that is told time and time again). I’ll be purchasing the next installment of the series. I can’t wait to see where Gib’s journey leads him next.
