Starship’s Mage (Starship’s Mage Book 1) Review

Magic and space travel make for a great combination and this book was that perfect combination of sci-fi and fantasy! When I first read the description of the book I was afraid that the magic was going to be more along the lines of superpower magic, so I was pleasantly surprised that it was runic magic. That choice to use runic magic combined with tech pushed the book from being a book I was amused by to a book that I found really entertaining. I also loved how Damien was both humble and sarcastic at times, it made for a very likable main character.

This might be random, but as someone who’s liked the premise of the show The Expanse enough to slowly watch it all but not like it enough to binge it all, I have to say that if Starship’s Mage was made into a show, I would binge it all as quick as I could. The magic in this book adds that extra oomph to make this book much more enjoyable for a hardcore fantasy fan.

As much as I got really into this book there was one issue I had. While reading the book I was kind of getting annoyed about the fact that info was repeated a lot, I was constantly saying to myself “Yes we already know this”. After enough times of that, I started to suspect that this book was most likely multiple novellas in one. It was only after I finished did I learn my suspicions were correct. Now, after learning that I’m much more understanding but ideally, I would have liked some editing so that it wasn’t as repetitive. Or at least a little blurb in the description of the book(preferably for the Kindle attention where I read it) so that I would be forewarned. But even with this issue, I would still give this book an 8 out of 10.


I love movies!!!!!!!!!!
