A bit more fleshing out of the background prior to the last scenes would have been helpful in understanding the main character's motivations. Also
several of the support characters seemed to come out of nowhere with little explanation, but it didn't distract too much.
Overall a good effort and I would certainly read a followup novel if offered.
The main character didn't feel...like a guy. And there was no foresight on his part or planning. When you have consistently run into werewolves over very few days, wouldn't you take a moment and make sure you have at least ^one^ weapon capable of dealing with them? Even carrying a handful of wolfsbane or learning a spell... The story was good, but it really wasn't. There wasn't any despair or anguish, none of the feelings really came through strongly.
I can't recommend this, but I will look for the next book to see if it improves.
Felix's past, his family history and his inheritance are what everyone is fighting over. Evil witches try to use a niece that Felix did not even know existed to get around barriers placed by his sorcerer father on gaining full access to his ancestral home.
Flix's love life is a little more ethically challenged. He finds himself attracted to trolls with tusks, then rejects his troll girlfriend as he wants more than just a booty call. He wants a relationship. OK, but most makes wouldn't pass up a commitment free attractive romp in the hay . He then falls hard for another woman based solely on her physical attractiveness. while he took the moral high ground with one relationship he doesn't seemt o have any concerns about making the moves on a woman already in a steady serious relationship.
It move along fairly well, staying entertaining to the end.
Arriving near where he grew up, our wizard finds the small town almost overrun with witches, werewolves, and trolls. There are also suspicious small-town cops...and, unfortunately, several murders and a child kidnapping occur right after the wizard hits town...
This is the first fantasy novel by Jamie McFarlane that I have read, and it is a great, enjoyable read. There is nonstop action, as our protagonist seems to be the center of a frameup...
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AS: FANTASY/URBAN WITCHCRAFT TALE.
The magic system is weak, to the point of non existent, mostly consisting of vague allusions, random lists of of items which trail off into "and a half dozon other items", and half remembered "this is what magic should look like, right?" descriptions. There appears to be no actual rhyme or reason to the magical system, though all the characters treat it as perfectly logical.
The action is rushed and overly forced, to the point that I'm barely introduced to a single character before they're suddenly center stage and I'm left feeling that I missed reading several introductory pages of setup and dialogue. It's more a gloss of an outline of characters than actual characters who's motivations I can clearly understand.
The themes of freedom and government oppression are clear in the text, but due to the lack of characterization and rushed action, the villainy of the government (even the supernatural government) feels ham handed, unlikely, cartoonish and over the top.
The action scenes are excellent, well written and clear, and give a blood pumping sense of "yeah, cool! awesome!" as the main character shows off his abilities. The plotting and direction to the series is excellent, coherently laid out and the unfolding narrative takes no strange, unexpected, or unexplained turns, very well done.
With a little more practice, this author will be an extremely enjoyable read, giving the characters some time to slow down and expand, a little more thought behind the world building, a little less dangling sentences empty 'flavor' descriptions. As it stands, an excellent purchase for light and throwaway reading, with no re-readability, no memorable characters, moments, or world, and no staying power for the long term.
The characters develop enough to carry the story along and while some plot points are totally obvious, there are a enough twists and bends to keep things interesting. The magic adds some color without being over indulgent. It is a fun, light read that many should find entertaining.
