The story hooked me pretty quickly, which is no great feat in an experienced writer. However, it kept me hooked, which IS difficult when you have an omnivorous reader looking at your work with a jaundiced eye. I've downloaded so many books lately that start off well, but disintegrate a little ways in - it's a real joy to discover a new author who holds her ground throughout.
The story is sword-and-sorcery; the society is broken up into fiefdoms run by wizards and Joe ends up working for an embattled wizard on the sword side of operations where his military training in unarmed combat is invaluable. Touched by the youth of an opposing soldier, he disobeys orders and goes out into the battle field and rescues him only to find he/she appears to be a woman who insists that she is a man named Phillip. It is at this point that the Wizard reminds him that the difference between himself and the Dark Lords is that he is a benevolent despot, but he's still a despot.
He orders Joe and Phillip out on a quest to find dragon scales for a potion, and perhaps for other purposes.Read more ›
Joe disobeys the Mage to rescue Phillip, a boy from the enemy's camp he sees fall during the fight. Little does he realize she is actually a girl and the amulet she wears makes her deathly afraid of Joe. The Mage casts a spell on Phillip to overcome the enchantment of the amulet. The Mage tells Joe he has to take care of Phillip, so they can get to know one another because he has a plan for both of them. After three weeks, the Mage sends them on a quest to obtain six dragon scales.
The cover is great. I loved the dragon, it had me cracking up. A nice little love story. It was an easy read and got my interest from the beginning. If this wasn't free, I probably would have passed on it. I had never heard of Carmen before, but I will definitely be looking out for her books now.
My standards are very high because I have done a lot of reading. When I compare Where Magic Rules to all the books I have ever read this is where is lands.
I give this work 3.5 stars. It is definitely fun entertaining and worth the read.
5 = Moby Dick, or Treasure Island
