HASH(0x9731f0b4) out of 5 stars Magicka: Allusions, lore. Humour and more (rhyme) 12 Nov. 2013
By P idaho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The further down, the more concise. (After thought)

Before I start, here is a base group of things I like to see if you like the same things (thus will like this book):
Lord of the Rings (books and movies... heck anything really),
The Magicka series (I trust you like those?)
The medieval world in general(fantasy and not)
Monty Python
This is not a complete list but you should be able to deduce whether you generally agree or disagree with my opinions. I hope that was useful and not boring and unhelpful.

I did quite like this book. I have read other* game-based books(*one actually), and they were a bit cheesy and rather lame. This was not so.
It has suspense, it has good plot. The plot is lore-friendly, by this I mean that there are differences in Magicka games, this book connects them sensibly.
On that subject this book has several things that, while not "game-changing", do inform you on some minor background for the games. (I shall say no more on this... Read!)
The characters are interesting, though unfortunately a little stereotypical.
The book was disappointingly short. Not in the manner that it was very short. It is rather disappointing in it's length because I want more. It isn't really an uncompleted novel. Ah... What I am trying to say is that were there more books to be had, I would get them. I do think it could have been drawn out further, better developing characters.
To expound on what was said before; each character has a cliché (If that is the right word)that is "used" at least once. One stupid (literally) character is funny at first but quickly lost it's humor on me, though this may just be a annoyance that only I will encounter. I don't want to go into the plot to much so I say this for now, "*read* and be merry." That was an allusion :). Which carries to the next point. This book is full of allusions, almost always funny and always fun to spot. This book has plenty of humour in it to fit the magicka world.

Now, if you don't want to read that, and I don't blame you, read this:

Pros:
Humorous
Lore-enlightening
Allusions
Suspense
Plot
Built in a good world.
It's cheap and easy to read.

Cons**:
Characters are a bit cliché.
A tad short... I need more!
Was one joke used to much? (Fa__, "huh" type joke if you've read it.)

**Cons are, very much so, subject to opinion.

Very short summary: You will better understand the games though a fun-to-read book.

I pray you find this review to be most helpful, as from a thoughtful sir, not that of a longwinded fool, though the second be more likely.

HASH(0x983f9708) out of 5 stars A well written novel with a little bit of twist or so 24 Mar. 2014
By Anwar I.M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book. Packed of fun, silly jokes will bring laughter for sure. A non stop adventure will keep you reading with full of surprise and suspense along the way. I got bummed when something happened to one of the characters, which distract me from reading the book and then get excited again but at the end it was a bittersweet. The author are brilliant, at one point it relate to our daily life, makes me think to appreciate every second of my life. I do care about each of characters presented. Wish more chapters in it, sometimes feel a bit short, what happened to the rest of student when the story end? does forbidden chamber got fix? the rest was left puzzled with no answer, but one thing for sure, people do changed. I recommend this book to all Magicka fans out there, got mine a paperback version and I'm happy with my purchased.

HASH(0x983e4528) out of 5 stars Great Fantasy Title 8 Nov. 2013
By Stephanie Moody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Fun, Fast paced read.

Just as clever as McGirt's better known Jason Cosmos trilogy. Glad I gave it a try.
HASH(0x972499e4) out of 5 stars It does an excellent job of capturing the satirical humor of the game 23 July 2014
By Joshua Van Zandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fast-paced, well-written book that keeps the reader interested and engaged with the story. It does an excellent job of capturing the satirical humor of the game. All Magicka fans should read it, and it will still be interesting for anyone who did not play the game.

HASH(0x978e1978) out of 5 stars Kept me laughing 4 Jan. 2014
By D. Moody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was another funny and enjoyable read. If you like clever characters and a great story you can't go wrong with McGirt. I'm not very knowledgable about Magicka, but tried this one out after enjoying McGirt's other books. I'm glad I did. Lots of fun.
