Publisher's Summary

In a galaxy tied together by the magic of the elite Jump Magi, Damien Montgomery is a newly graduated member of their number. With no family or connections to find a ship, he is forced into service on an interstellar freighter known to be hunted by pirates. When he takes drastic action to save the Blue Jay from their pursuers, he sets in motion a sequence of events beyond his control and attracts enemies on both sides of the law.

A Fun Spacey Adventure

Any additional comments?

This book was a surprise for me, as I was expecting just a mediocre, slightly entertaining book. Instead I got a gripping series of tales. Don't get me wrong though, in my categorization system, this is still an entertaining book as opposed to a good book.

The characters are paper-thin here, but Stewart more than makes up for that with his world building and sometimes legit surprising story. The world building is done best when he writes in these nice little touches that are so easy to miss. One such example is a mention that real-estate on a space ship is cheap, but mass is not. The story is equal parts light thriller and adventure. If that floats your boat, go for it. It's a hop and a skip between planets, starbases, and the vast emptiness of space in this omnibus.

The elephant in the room is the characters. There isn't much depth there beyond the titular character Damien, and even with him, it's pushing it to say he is deep. Nah, this is how an adventure book should be, none of that lovey dovey stuff or angst stuff, just the trip.

So I recommend this book to anyone wanting an adventurous sci-fi jaunt through a future galaxy powered by a few mages. Just FYI, this is definitely more sci-fi than fantasy though.

Fantastic combination of science, fantasy and war.

I could not manage to put this down. I'm sure my coworkers think I'm being antisocial by keeping my headphones on all day every day.

A good, simple yarn.

I'm not going to bore you with anything like a synopsis. All you will need to know is that whilst I have really enjoyed myself listening to this audio book, it will not win awards for depth of characterisation or plot. That is, of itself, a plus because you will find yourself engaged, and entertained, without too much effort. Sometimes a good, simple yarn is all that is required. Fans of Firefly will be comfortable in the background to this story.

A really good mixture of sci fi and magic

If you could sum up Starship's Mage Omnibus in three words, what would they be?

Definetly a sci fi romp but with a twist, einstienan physics exist ergo no ftl so instead humanity has developed (through a nasty eugenics programme in the past and only briefly referenced in the book) mages who amongst other things can physically move a starship in space 1light year at a time. The author creates a universe with all good and bad that humanity has to offer and pulls you along at a good pace which left me wanting more....
