An enjoyable read if a little cliched and predictable occasionally but I will read further Technomage books when I get them as some nice surprises turn up in the narration.

I found the beginning and middle section of this story slow and boring. It improved a lot as it got going but it was a little gory in places for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watchout for the Sword! Oh, Sorry! Here's Your Head Back! 9 Jun. 2015
By Guardsix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don’t know, I just don’t know about this book. On one hand, I know it’s not my kind of book, yet on the other, it was very, very interesting! I will tell anyone reading this review up front that this is a very violent book, at least for a couple of scenes. There is a lot of action during the course of the book and it is exciting, but the author can get very graphic, very quickly.

This is a story about a young man going to school to find out what he wants to become, if they will let him. And I will also state very clearly, that this is in no way, a Harry Potter© type story; far from it. Ceril (and yes,my keyboard does want to spell Cereal), is our main guy. He’s been working with his Grandpa for most of this summer and for probably a lot of summers past. It doesn’t say anything about Ceril’s parents, just that he’s been working in his Grandpa’s garden a lot and they both enjoy doing that. This sounds like a pretty peaceful setting. It is until Ceril finds a sword in the garden.

Yes, Ceril found a real special kind of sword which his Grandpa promptly took away from him and never said anything about it again. Ceril heads back to school again and is ready to start another usual fall term only this year he thinks he’s going to get to pick his special field of study. He believes he want to study agriculture in order to go back to his Grandpa’s garden and help make it produce more. Now all this sounds pretty boring and it did to me, expect when that sword starts showing up either at Ceril’s feet or in his hand! It just appears! Ceril isn’t sure why or what is happening, but he has this sword that glows like crazy and he is becoming the attention of lots of professors and even the Head Master.

He’s quickly told that he won’t be studying agriculture, that’s for sure. He sword has shown him to be a budding technomage and that’s what he’s going to be one way or another. And then to top it off, Ceril accidentally kills a student when the sword appears in both his hand and the chest of a rather large and intimidating student!

It definitely is interesting reading to find out what happens to Ceril over the next six years. He’s not actually at the school any more but he is studying. He has to find out how to control the sword through a lot of training and then he has to study just how this sword and others like it came to be. It’s not magic, but darn near like magic. If you listen closely to todays news, you’ll hear stories about tiny little machines that are now being built to do things for which they are programmed. These are called Nanites and Ceril and his world have tons of them.

Again, not my kind of book, but it really, really is a lot of science fiction. I might just even read the second book, “Lineage”, that’s already published! It’s a good to great story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not my style 29 May 2013
By N. Stocks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had a really hard time with this book. 1) It seemed to be unnecessarily brutal, without giving me a way to accept it. Nasty things unexpectedly happen, and the book just moves on. 2) The characters feel flat. 3) There's entirely too much handwaving, and not enough explanation of the technology. 4) Any sense of progression is skipped. For example, the school scene goes: Intro (good), suddenly bully incident (ok), skip to the end of the school experience (huh?). All of a sudden he's full grown, only we didn't grow with him. We didn't learn what he learned, or feel what he felt. It makes you very disconnected from the character.
4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and unexpected adventure in a fascinating world. 8 Dec. 2016
By Christopher Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book. I am a fan of the author and his podcast and I could tell he put a lot of himself in to the narrative. There are a lot of pop culture influences and references throughout that never feel forced and add to the fun. Keeton builds his world with just enough information to keep you interested but holds enough back for twists and turns. To those who think there is no payoff or explanation just remember that this is part 1. If you read the whole series the payoffs are there. This is very much part 1 of a bigger story. I was enthralled with the story and found the mix of technology and magic fascinating. I could not wait to get to the next book. I highly recommend this book, but especially as part of the series as a whole.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unforgiving Science Fiction that is intriguing 29 Jun. 2015
By DM3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book rides the edge of fantasy and unforgiving science fiction and doesn't let up. The character development was great for the main character Ceril and his grandfather, but secondary characters fell a little flat and less developed. They should have had more backstory before being shoved into the limelight beside Ceril. The influences of mmorpgs is obvious to a fellow gamer, but this isn't bad, because the plot felt wholly original. Be warned, there is graphic violence, but I have to applaud the author for not shying away from it and pretending such nasty things don't exist (though a disclaimer might have helped) and though graphic, it didn't fill every page uselessly. In the end it was an intriguing book and I will look for the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars captivating 17 May 2015
By faithquilter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love good science fiction, and this book qualifies. It's got a plot that draws you in, good character development, and technostretches that one can almost grasp. I love that only some of the characters understand some of the aspects of their situation, so they are all necessary to accomplish their mission. There are some unexpectedly violent scenes, but their purpose seems to be plot development. And of course there are the (perhaps unexpected) red shirts, that harken back to sci-fi masters. I couldn't put it down, and am ready for Book 2.
