Product description

About the Author

I grew up playing Final Fantasy and watching Power Rangers. Then one day I sat down to watch a programing block called "Toonami" and my life was never the same. This is not hyperbole. It exposed me to Anime and later inspired me to write my first fanfic. This led to publishing my fanfiction on internet archives. One night I thought, "I'll write my own story from scratch. I'll be a published author." The next day I began the first chapter of what would become my debut novel, "A Mage's Power". In addition to novel writing, I've been practicing Tae Known Do since I was five and earned a first degree black belt in 2004. I started learning t'ai chi ch'uan in 2016. I also have bachelor degrees in English Literature and World History with a focus on the Classical Mediterranean.

The plot of A Mage's Power involves a young man named Eric, a down-on-his-luck loser that just sucks at life and everything goes wrong for him. His life takes an "interesting" turn when he's met by Tasio - a Trickster from the Fantasy world of Tariatla (think of him as the equivalent of Loki from Norse Mythology - or even the Thor comics). Deciding to take it upon himself to "help" Eric, he sends him to the world of Tariatla.

Now, the first thing that struck me is that the world of Tariatla is as somewhat "deconstructed" (as Brian says on his blog) world. As well as having traditional Fantasy elements like magic, monsters, elves, orcs, etc - there are also real world elements, like a job centre, diners, television, even an X-Factor type reality show for wizards! It kind of feels like Earth if it suddenly got invaded by Fantasy monsters. Now, the idea of combining Fantasy with real world is an idea that has been done and in this book it mainly works. But sometimes, the ideas seem to clash with each other and it's almost like it can't make up its mind as to whether the world wants to be Fantasy or not. For the most part it works, but there are times when it felt like the suspension of disbelief was stretched.

Trapped in this strange world, Eric tries to adapt to his new surroundings and eventually gets recruited into the Dragon's Lair as a mercenary, learning to use magic and make money. His team consists of Nolien (who's like the resident bookworm and slightly socially awkward member) and Tiza (the tough, take no prisoners kick ass chick). For the most part, I actually quite liked them - even though I wanted to slap Tiza in a few places! But Balisard, their leader, I thought was pretty awesome.

This is a well thought out and interesting book. I've read it three times since i bought it and the only thing i don't like is the fact that a second book still hasn't been published.

Very sceptical of the quality prior to reading it but I soon realised I was on to a winner here. I think this may be one of my favourites for a long time. Brilliant read, love the concept of it all and I cannot wait to read the next instalment!!!

The powers waging in Eric’s life have a claim on his mission to obtain A Mage's Power. Scary creatures and enchantment are the norm in the realm where he is stuck, and it’s the doing of a sneaky trickster. Erik is so busy with assignments and preparation that he isn’t even aware of the forces at work all around him. The influences have a prerogative and they won't rest until they acquire ‘A Mage's Power’. This is a fun story with a combination of make-believe and reality escapades. Laced with unforeseen twists and wonderful original characters, it is creative and vastly engaging. I truly enjoyed this read.

Despite its overbearing title this book is actually well grounded and the characters believable. The story line was filled with action and I was so gripped that I finished it in a day. What I am looking forwards to is how he will tie it into the next book in the series.
