A Darker Magic: Mage-Officer of Mars, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A bloody war has ended in restored peace. The shield of Martian magic guards the stars...two centuries of spell and steel to ward all humanity.
Two years ago, Lieutenant Commander Roslyn Chambers stood witness to the surrender of the last remnants of the Republic. Fueled by atrocity against Mage and mundane alike, the secessionists who waged war against the Protectorate of Mars are finally defeated. Now, a special commission from the Mage-Queen of Mars takes Roslyn deep into the former Republic to hunt the architects of that atrocity. Mages who betrayed their own, the creators of Project Prometheus must be brought to justice. But hidden from even the Republic, Prometheus has woven magic and technology together once more. Here, hidden from all prying eyes, they have created a monster...one that even a Protectorate forged by the spell must call black magic.

By changing from Damian to Roslyn as the main character this book doesn't have the readability of the previous books. So much so that I have not been able to finish it.
I just hope that the author goes back to Damian to continue the series so that he can defeat the protagonists that have been hinted at in the earlier books.
If future books don't pick up the enjoyabiliy of the earlier ones I know I'll not be buying anymore, and just keep rereading the ones I love.
Note: I received a free electronic copy in exchange for an unbiased review (but liked it enough to buy a copy anyway)
Overall the book was a fine easy read but it didn’t grab me as much as some of the others and did slightly drag on. Any more of these “fillers”, would make me give up on the series, which I have really enjoyed up to here.
