Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and it is a good one for anyone who loves fantasy, particularly fantasy that is detailed and takes some unexpected turns. However, I do want to mention one fairly minor issue which was that, at times, it felt like the author focused too much on the description and not on the action. This was mostly something I noticed early in the story and it wasn’t as significant later on. That might be because the story becomes more action-oriented as you go along or simply that I got more drawn into the story as I read. Either way, this isn’t a big issue and I imagine that many people won’t even notice it.
Path of the Magi is a fantasy to the very core. Magic, monsters, new creatures and races all come together. As a writer, I am blown away by the size and complexity of the world these authors have created. As a reader, I wanted to go further with this story and find out what was going to happen next. The characters are very diverse and well thought out, and they have individual personalities that make them unique from one another and interesting to see interact with one another. Great job to the authors, I look forward to the next parts in the series.
Another nice touch, I thought, was that the author has a somewhat interactive map of the book's world on the series website. I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, action and adventure genres.
