Lots of setup but not a lot of resolution. I like the world that he’s created but found myself getting bored at the end of the book. Needed better pacing/editing.
What did you like most about Mageborn?
I unashamedly enjoyed Battle, Blood and Chaos so I snatched this up directly. I enjoyed getting to now the old characters like Choss and Tammy again now that they have grown up a bit.
What did you like best about this story?
It feels a bit more mature, tackling propaganda and fake news in a fantasy environment - it is very relevant to the actual world!
Have you listened to any of Matt Addis’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Matt Addis is one of my favorite narrators and this is another solid performance.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There are a few 'sacrifice for the greater good' moments but it's not a tear-jerker, it's a swords and magic fantasy thriller!
Any additional comments?
Whilst the last trilogy was three self-contained stories, this felt like a set-up for a three-part tale. A change in pace but an improvement in writing style and story / character development from the author, I liked it though, looking forward to the next installment already!
It was a good story and new characters were believable but the end felt like it just stopped halfway through the story. I felt there were too many loose ends but I'm sure it was setting up for the next book in the series. Will await the next installment.
