Mage-Commander is the eleventh instalment of the Starship's Mage series. This series remains one of my favourite sci-fi/space opera series although the focus is no longer on Damien Montgomery the original main character. The last few books have concentrated upon the stories of Roslyn Chambers and Kelly LaMonte, with this book merging the two stories about half way through. Whilst I still like Damien best, Roslyn and Kelly are interesting and well written characters with this story line and the overall story arc progressing nicely. This was a good enjoyable read and a worthy addition to the series. I’m looking forward to the next book. Note: I received a free electronic copy in exchange for an unbiased review (but liked it enough to buy a copy anyway)
Firstly I have to put this line here in the interests of fairness : "I received a free advanced reader's copy" That said I have to add I purchased the book just after release as I have with all the authors other books. I found the book to be well paced and was interesting enough that I read it in one sitting. I'm normallu a character follower and once a story chages mains lose some love for it, but this time I'm still enjoying this story and am keen for more. I'm thinking the way forward in the series will bring some plot twists that hopefully make use of older characters, especially with the current information available to us the readers, but will be happy even if it doesnt. I think the author is easily up there in my top favorites of all time.
As always the plot is interesting mixed with layers of politics, social and legal limits, whereas the enemy has very little respect for the on human aka alien rights, the end justifies the means psychopathic order. Is great not giving away the plot. Sadly you regret finishing becuase like me I want more. I don't want to wait. If you never read the series, enjoy is great.
This book builds wonderfully on those that came before. The way that Magic and science is merged in this universe is a thing of beauty. The characters are rounded and the pace of the story is spot on, each time I read one I'm wanting the next immediately. cannot recommend this highly enough.
Great characters. Good to see their growth flaws and all. Good plot lines and as usual great world building. its like being at the movies you get such a great visual picture of whats going on. Enjoyed immensely and cant wait till next one is out.
Another good book in the series, the only thing that nearly made not even start reading it was the post sex scene at the beginning. I don't think it added to the story in any shape or form, apart from that I enjoyed it.
