Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The following is an interview conducted with Brian Kittrell, author of the Mages of Bloodmyr series.

Author Interview

Interviewer: Many of your reviewers have mentioned that the book turned out much different than they expected, and many have made a comparison of the early parts of The Circle of Sorcerers to J.K. Rowling's bestselling series Harry Potter. Can you elaborate?

Brian Kittrell: Certainly, and first, let me thank you for the opportunity to talk about the series. The books were a pleasure to write, and I'm happy that they're finding their way into readers' hands. Similarly to the Harry Potter series by Rowling, I began the books from the perspective of a young mage who was to begin his training in magic, and the similarities end there. Laedron is quickly thrust into the action after a sneak attack the the mage's enclave by the Heraldan church. He's forced to find his own way in magic, and he must make the decision of whether he will fight in the war--and ultimately get justice for the wrongs committed by the church--or hide from the enemies trying to destroy his kind.

Interviewer: Does the series draw any comparisons to real-world events or things we can relate to in real life?

Brian Kittrell: Yes, very much so. The war between the mages and the church parallels many of the modern struggles we see today. In the books, we see two groups of people who are largely the same, but they have their own customs. Mages use magic and spells, and priests see it as using divine power and miracles. And Ismerelda--one of the central characters in the first book--explains it best when she says that mages and priests are basically the same, using the same abilities taught by the powerful sorceress Azura in ancient times, but they have grown apart on their ideologies and how they think magic should be used. We see the same pattern in many of the social issues in our own world, and sometimes the biggest part of the problem is a failure for people to see past their own ingrained beliefs.

Interviewer: J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit make use of a number of fantasy creatures. Does your series do the same?

Brian Kittrell: In writing the Mages of Bloodmyr, I wanted to focus more on the human happenings, but a new fantasy race is born at the end of The Immortals of Myrdwyer. I won't go into that so as not to spoil it, but that race will see a place in the future of Bloodmyr, granted that I am given the time and energy to complete all of the stories I have.

Interviewer: Do you have plans to extend this series past three books?

Brian Kittrell: This series, no. However, I will write in the same world with the same characters, and some themes may translate between different series. I don't like the concept of never-ending series that we have seen come about, though, so each series will be complete in its own right, and some ideas from those series may create their own standalone books or series, each written tight enough not to require reading everything else to understand what is going on. Readers of all of the books will probably get the greatest reward, but it won't be required.

Interviewer: Thank you for coming by and giving us a little insight to your work. I hope we will chat again soon once you release more books.

Brian Kittrell: It will be my pleasure.
