    For me, this book had a lot of potential It had the ability to set up a wonderful world with wonderful characters, but it doesn t It sets up for you to get lost When you start the book, you know that there is technology and magic, but you don t know how either of it works, and then you also recognize that there is ZERO explanation of how anything works as far as the magic goes He is all you get There s a war, your mind was wiped, and you are now fighting on a side you don t if you belong to For me, this book had a lot of potential It had the ability to set up a wonderful world with wonderful characters, but it doesn t It sets up for you to get lost When you start the book, you know that there is technology and magic, but you don t know how either of it works, and then you also recognize that there is ZERO explanation of how anything works as far as the magic goes He is all you get There s a war, your mind was wiped, and you are now fighting on a side you don t if you belong to or not That s about it The characters don t really develop at all People who are jerks in the beginning are still jerks in the end A lot of people are doing messed up stuff in the name of survival, and the people cough in the crossfire are pretty much left to fend for themselves Then there s a moment when something happens and it s pretty much Deus Ex Machina and undone with a beer No I m serious A Beer There is NO way this book ends with the way it ends I m all about having a nice ending, but the characters in this book are so under powered, and the bad guys aren t even OP They are gods playing with ants and the ants win because.reasons The character development is about as flat as pancakes and the bonds between them are less believable than someone calming to have found Bigfoot riding on the back of a unicorn holding a leprechaun The one good thing is that characters I didn t like did die And believe me, there are some MAJOR asshats in this book that deserve to die, be res d and then killed again The possible romantic story if you could try and justifiably call it that is also not believable I ve seen better love scenes in porn flicks The biggest grip I have is the lack of world building NOTHING is explained in the book There is ZERO backstory it just starts And despite people having their mind wipe, they just remember at key points mind you how to use their powers despite NEVER being told anything They just all of a sudden remember how to throw lighting bolts up someone s ass or how to turn invisible at the right time, or how to summon the holy undead to storm beaches like it s D Day at Normandy I m obviously being over the top here, but it s akin to what happens in the book I m deadass serious about that So if you want a book that does nothing but throw you in a stiution you know nothing about, but what to see people die left and right This book is for you If you want something that actually ties all the points together and that fleshes out what is an AWESOME premise with characters and worlds that are being begged to brought to life I would tell you to skip this book Seriously To sum it up This book is like hearing one of your friends who has problems telling a story explain to you one of the most EPIC adventures in the world but forgets key points Yeah, they get from A to B, but it leaves you with so many questions I m just so disappointed in this book I really wanted to be good I really did

    This review is for the audiobook version of Tech Mage by Chris Fox and narrated by Ryan Kennard Burke.Let me just say, wow I wasn t prepared to enjoy Tech Mage as much as I did I am a fan of Sci Fi and Fantasy as distinct genres I usually hate it when the two are lumped together as a single category of literature They are distinct IMHO.However, Tech Mage, like the Pern novels and some of Piers Anthony s early works, successfully blends the two genres in a way that feels natural and organic This review is for the audiobook version of Tech Mage by Chris Fox and narrated by Ryan Kennard Burke.Let me just say, wow I wasn t prepared to enjoy Tech Mage as much as I did I am a fan of Sci Fi and Fantasy as distinct genres I usually hate it when the two are lumped together as a single category of literature They are distinct IMHO.However, Tech Mage, like the Pern novels and some of Piers Anthony s early works, successfully blends the two genres in a way that feels natural and organic I love the concept of magic being harnessed by technology.Aran is a decent protagonist and I especially enjoyed his relationship with Nara spelling sorry, in Audio you have to guess these things as it developed from slave captor to peers to we ll see.The narrator, Ryan Kennard Burke, does a fine job with the performance He comes across to me at least as a poor man s Luke Daniels He has a similar sound, range, and expressions This isn t meant as a slight against Burke Daniels is audiobook A List royalty and any comparison to him is high praise If you re looking for true Sci Fi Fantasy with a touch of military and political intrigue thrown in for good measure, then pick up Tech Mage I ll probably be checking out the rest of this series as it is released I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

    Actual Rating 3,5 StarsIt is an interesting book, with good world building and characters but it did not grip me, I hope that the other two books in the series will get better, so we will see


  6. William Howe William Howe says:

    Not really a book 1There is too much that isn t explained If you label a novel as the first book in a series, it needs to act like the first book and establish the universe I understand this follows another series, but if you can t get into this series without reading the previous one, then it s not book one.I do not plan on starting the previous series either Magic is no reason to do away with logic.

    Magic in space FantasticAnother fantastic book from Chris Fox Magic and space What a fantastic combination One of my favorite things about Chris Fox s writing is he writes women as real characters They are not relegated to some support role, weak damsels in distress or made bitches to be strong decisive characters.


  8. Diana Wilson Diana Wilson says:

    I rather enjoyed this book, but something really stuck me as off So, in this universe, mind wiping people is very, very common and easy So, why isn t there standard procedures for recording people particularly important people , on the probable chance that you ll be wiped It s a silly thing and small but it really bothered me.


  9. Dave Daniels Dave Daniels says:

    I received a free copy from the author I had the option of reviewing or not I love when an author brings something I had never thought of before and that is what a got a Full plate of here I can t wait until the next one

    GoodExcellent imagination and combination of technology and magic The depth of the story is compelling and am curious if any romantic intrigue will be added in the series
