Publisher's Summary

The would-be Archmage has slain nearly all the magic-users in the world, taking their power for himself. If he succeeds in killing the Lucky Seven's own mage Stratocaster, the Archmage's power will become absolute and plunge the world into darkness under his cruel reign. But not if Mustang Sally and the rest of the Just Cause superheroes have anything to say about it.
Only time will tell if Sally can run fast enough to escape the Archmage's clutches, fast enough to outwit his evil plan, fast enough to save the world.

The Archmage

Having not read the first book, I was surprised on how much I enjoyed this book. I was expecting this book to be campy. It is not (well maybe the villain is). I'm going to have to listen to the first book. I thought the narrator did a really good job. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

Superheroes, Magic, Time-travel to the Wild West

This second book in the Just Cause universe is again primarily told from the perspective of 3rd generation speedster Mustang Sally, but this time the stakes have definitely been raised as one of the magic users on the planet is seeking to become the archmage and the only way that he can accomplish that is literally over the dead bodies of all the other magic users on Earth since their power travels to the nearest magic user when they die in a somewhat Highlanderesque manner.

Besides Sally, the book features a supporting cast that mostly consistent of characters who we previously met in the previous novel and on the whole they are all developed nicely in this installment, as is Sally herself who could have easily ended up filling the sterotypical 'chosen one' role which mostly isn't the case here, albeit the author's need to emphasise her youth at one point in the book was probably a little heavy-handed.

I do not want to go into too much detail on this plot as it is written in a very entertaining manner and it is probably going to be most enjoyable for people going into it fresh, but if I had to sum it up then think Avengers meets LotR with a dash of Back to the Future 3 for luck.

The narrator of this first novel returns to the same duties in this one and does another quality job, bringing Sally to life very effectively while also giving suitably distinctive performances for the rest of the supporting cast.

Overall, I thought this was noticeably better than the first one in the series and I still found that one to be enjoyable, so I would recommend people check out both of them.
