Publisher's Summary

When accusations of piracy and mass murder are laid against his homeworld, Damien Montgomery is sent to resolve the crisis. As counteraccusations fly and an old flame reenters his life, the newest Hand of the Mage-King of Mars finds himself in the midst of a bloody interstellar shadow war. With the death toll mounting, Damien must decide whether he should trust the world he came from - or the world that asked for his help. The wrong choice will trigger a civil war that could shatter human civilization. No pressure.

Obvious BUT Intense! When's the next book?

The bad guys were obvious! The solution however was not. I'm looking forward to book 4!

Worthy but a bit repetitive

I've been waiting for many months and was thrilled when I saw it finally show up in Audible.com. I wasn't disappointed and generally enjoyed the book but I was hoping for something less predictable. There was the usual encounters with other mages challenging Damien's abilities and authority and the subsequent near death encounters along with the political intrigue along the way but most of the characters, including Damien, seemed less interesting than in the previous books. Even the main antagonist was simple to determine very early on.

With that said, the writing was still very fluid and the narration still well recited (except for a nit with Damien sounding demanding and slightly arrogant even when he intended his declarations are meant to sound soft.)

loved it

Great sci-fi with a twist of magic. The book has loads of pace while it twists and turns all the way to the end. Original in so many ways but not so far out in left field as to leave the reader behind. If you are looking for a good sci-fi book that's got loads of action without being pretentious, read this and the others in the series. Great fun :)

A big thank you to the author for bringing something new to the table, a joy to read !
