    So I did not realize going in that The Healer's Apprentice was a Christian book, but after browsing through the shelves and seeing that many others had tagged it as such, I realized it would probably not be my cup of tea. I have nothing against Christian fiction, and I certainly understand why there is a market for it, considering that a lot of what is popular in YA fantasy and even most YA realistic fiction right now isn't exactly stuff that makes it easy to wear a WWJD bracelet while reading. [...]

    I do so love a good clean romance novel. And this book was a perfect example. It was beautiful and romantic, a perfect Christian love story. I really like books set in medievalish times, and this book was brilliantly researched and written. It was pretty predictable, I knew who Rose was nearly from the beginning, but that didn't take away the joy I had of reading Wilhelm and Rose find this out for themselves. I also liked how it was based loosley on Sleeping Beauty, and the true love's kiss.gh. [...]

    My book! It releases in September with Zondervan, a YA romance loosely based on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. Check it out!!!

    LOVED LOVED LOVED this!A story of persevering love; importance of honour, keeping your word and family, personal calling, along with true chivalry, makes a lasting impression on your mind and heart. Rose is a beautiful and tender character. I related to her very much. She just wants to do what is right and have a loving family is that too much to ask for? And Wilhem is the perfect gentleman. I had a feeling of who the evil snake was - yuck! Great plot twists and turns making it a fast read :DThe [...]

    I wasn't impressed. It isn't bad by any means but it's not that good.Woah, hold up there, Hamlin. You can't go around issuing unrealistic decrees that you break no less than two pages later, that everybody breaks with no consequences at the ball, and that apparently no longer matter till it's necessary for the story again. This really annoys me. Majorly. You don't mention something that seems important and then have it no longer pertain in any way no less than two pages later. He breaks it, Rupe [...]

    Yet another that has made it my absolute faves shelf.I have never read anything like this. A christian fairy tale/historical fiction but I mean, wow.I adored this world and found myself really excited to get back to the audiobook. It had me tearing up and beaming.This book received a fair bit of criticism from other members because of it's strong emphasis on Christianity and although I can see why that just isn't some people's cup if tea, it didn't bother me at all and in fact, it was fitting t [...]

    While I still enjoyed this for the most part, there were a few things I didn’t like about it…I felt like some of the characters like Rose could be a little careless at times and put themselves in unnecessary danger for certain situations. I was also spoiled for a major thing that happened in this book—which could definitely be a reason why I was aggravated by some of the character’s actions sometimes…Since I saw everything at a different perspective, I don’t think I can judge this bo [...]

    Disclaimer: I received this book through Goodread's FirstReads program, so I'd like to thank them and Zondervan for my copy. No compensation was received and the opinions expressed are my own. "The Healer's Apprentice" by Melanie Dickerson is my first Goodread's FirstReads win --a book I've been "dying" to read ever since I saw the book cover months before its release. I am SO glad to see Zondervan coming out with teen medieval historical fiction (that's a mouthful, haha) and I thoroughly enjoye [...]

    3.5 stars -- I enjoyed this book from Melanie Dickerson. Fun and fresh play on a classic fairy tale, though I was itching to edit some sections (it's hard for a writer to make me forget my editorial bent). I look forward to watching Melanie develop as a writer; she has a solid start here. Recommended for the 12 and up Christian YA reading crowd.

    The Healer's Apprentice was a very interesting book and I quite loved it! The cover caught my eye right away; and the promise that it was a Christian retelling of Sleeping Beauty I just had to read it! *smiles*This book is a historical, set in medieval Germany, I believe. It had sweet romance, action, rejection, and mystery - swept me away with its captivating quality, really!But the villain and happenings involving demons were a little much for me. I read The Healer's Apprentice quite a few ye [...]

    I enjoyed this book a lot!!!! It was a great book! There was a hint of mystery to it, too! It also made me laugh out loud at some points. Didn't really like the couple of suggestive scenes and stuff but it had a lot of scripture and talking to God in it! Can't wait to read more by Melanie Dickerson!

    The Healer's Apprentice was like being transported to a world of castles and kinds, knights and curses, love and danger. I could see the castle, I could hear the voices of the hero and heroine. Melanie Dickerson created a vivid medieval world and set a beautiful love story in these charmed surroundings. I absolutely loved it. I saw it was described as bening for Young Adults and I know this would appeal to that age but it's a wonderful love story for anyone who reads romance, at any age.I can't [...]

    I am a huge fan of fairy tales and I really enjoyed this story that is loosely based on Sleeping Beauty. It has all the elements I look for in a story, not only is there a great plot, a swoonworthy hero, and an intelligent heroine there's a great message for girls everywhere about waiting for the right guy to come along. Rose, the heroine, not only has to deal with learning that her parent's aren't who she believed them to be but also deal with a very handsome young man who isn't who he seems to [...]

    I loved the title and even the cover. I wanted to like this, even just a little. I wish I could just say this book was not for me and be done, but I can't seem to leave it at that. This book is a perfect example of all that I hate when reading or listening. I'm not sure which I disliked more…the writing or the narration. Talk about fantasy romance…that is truly my least favorite genre. I've read one other book by this author, and I had the same complaints with that one: requires a sweet toot [...]

    I got a copy of this book through the Vine program. This looked like a wonderful book, a great historical romance with a bit of fantasy flare to it. It was okay, in fact the beginning of the book was pretty good, but it declined from the middle of the book on. Keep in mind I approached this as a historical fantasy, I was not aware that the publisher was a Christian fiction publisher when characters started setting aside action to wait for God to save them and then the Duke of the realm used his [...]

    Disappointing.The writing is rather ridiculous, the plot is lacking and very predictable, the historical accuracy regarding Christianity was such that even one whose knowledge of medieval times is as lacking as mine had to cringe (more on that below), and the characters are cookie cutter. There were also some serious inconsistencies going on; especially Rose and Lord Hamlin and ESPECIALLY Lord Hamlin. Both of them had plenty of double standards going on there. They're all propriety and decorum u [...]

    At first it seemed to bounce around but then it started to flow much better. It has your typical romantic ending. I did start to guess some of the plot line but not all of it was predictable which is nice. I particularly like the attention to detail that the author took to the medieval ages and making the book as historically accurate as she could. It's always a good sign when it's hard to put a book down because you just have to know what is next.

    DNF- Didn't care to finish this one. For all that Melanie Dickerson's books have been ranted about I didn't find this especially enjoyable. Inaccurate historically and mediocre writing. Rather disappointing.

    BIG SPOILERS AHEAD!You have been warned.I wanted to like this book. I really did, having marked it as to-read so many years ago. But sadly, I couldn’t.It had, however, good things. The setting is beautiful, and every scene feels like a painting. The whole ballroom scene, with the banners, the food, the dancing, the dresses… Everything is so well researched, that it’s a pleasure to read it; I love when the author actually cares for historical accuracy, and does the necessary research to giv [...]

    About this book:“Two Hearts. One Hope. Rose has been appointed as a healer's apprentice at Hagenheim Castle, a rare opportunity for a woodcutter's daughter like her. While she often feels uneasy at the sight of blood, Rose is determined to prove herself capable. Failure will mean returning home to marry the aging bachelor her mother has chosen for her—a bloated, disgusting merchant who makes Rose feel ill. When Lord Hamlin, the future duke, is injured, it is Rose who must tend to him. As she [...]

    You know that one book that simply can't bear to put down, you read it gasping and awing in exactly the right moments, and you can't do anything but just sit back, smile, and sigh, your heart so full of the happily-ever-after you can barely breathe for bliss? Yep, I'm talking about this book. Absolutely delicious!I loved the romance, the action, the faith. The romance was pure and sigh-inducing. The action was heart-stopping and gasp-causing. And the faith was great. I'm so glad it showed the da [...]

    This debut novel by Melanie Dickerson carried me off into an enchanted world that I didn't want to leave when the story ended. The Healer's Apprentice was a real page turner and will make any romance lovers heart beat a little bit harder as they read along. After seeing the book video trailer I knew I had to read it. Boy am I glad I did! I adore historical fiction. It's my favorite genre. I also love the Middle Ages time period. This story had those elements and they were both done very well. Th [...]

    I thought it was a nice read. I understand the story is based off of Sleeping Beauty. Still, I felt it to be too predictable. I think they could have done more while still staying true enough to the original story. And I didn't like the whole demon thing. I think it was excessive and could have been changed. Anyways, I still think it's a nice book and I am going to read the rest of the series.

    Best book ever!!Best book I have ever read! I couldn't put the book down. It had so many twists and I love books with suspense in them. She inspired me so much. I have always loved writing and now I want to try and write a book (again)! I shall have to continue this series! I also love the medieval times.

    I'm rating the books by authors my students love. I keep these books in my classroom library & each year new young readers discover them. Melanie Dickerson is one of my students' favorite authors. I'm so glad she's prolific! (I teach literature in a small Christian high school.)

    I wish I could give this book three and a half stars. I liked, but I'm not so sure I REALLY liked it. So I'm giving it four stars, but being a bit generous.The first book I've read in 2011, I was really looking forward to "The Healer's Apprentice." I've been following Melanie Dickerson on for a while and we seem to read a lot of similar books.The Plot The life Rose knows is that of the woodcutter's daughter, apprentice of Hagenheim's healer. Though pretty, she does not wish to marry, but wants [...]
