Let me start by saying this is not Harry Potter, Earthsea, Shannara or Charlie Bone. I've searched high and low and have been unable to find anything about the books I am looking for.

About 15 years ago I read the first book in what I know was a series of books about a boy wizard. What I can remember about the book I read was that the boy either goes to a wizards school or becomes an apprentice to a wizard and begins training in some type of school. I remember there at the school the boy having a hard time learning how to light a candle with magic while other students can do it easily. The boy learns for a time and then goes off on some type of adventure.

I remember the book being hardback and the color of it being a pastel orange I think, along with the other books in the series being other pastel colors. I don't remember what the picture on the front of the book looked like, but I am pretty sure it had one.

I've been so desperate to find these books that I even contacted the elementary school I attended as a child to find the books but they have rotated books in the library 2 or 3 times since then.

ANY help would be VERY much appreciated. I'm desperate here, throw a guy a bone.

By the way, greetings to all, this forum looks like a lot of fun.

Unfortunatly, the Riftware Saga aren't the books I'm looking for. I finished reading Apprentice and now I'm about halfway through Master. Good series so far, I think I may just have to read it. Alas, my search continues for the long lost books of my childhood.
