Good story but don't be fooled
"Magic Time" starts with an interesting premise. What if all our technology stopped working and magic regained the upper hand? The cause for this Tolkeinesk Armageddon is a government sponsored experiment gone wrong, but that is less important than the result which is a world where humans are forced to relate to one another on a more human basis without the mechanical aids we have all grown dependant upon. Lawyers become dragons and ex fencing champions become later-day knights on bikes. The concept is great, the problem is that without warning the authors have tricked the reader into thinking he is getting a self contained story while in reality he is getting the first part of a series with no end in sight. I love trilogies too but how about a little warning here guys? There is no clue on the cover or anywhere in the book that this is only the first part of a series. The ending does not even make a pass at creating a sense of closure. Absolutely nothing is resolved. There is no excuse for this other that a blatant scam to sell more books. I feel that if an author wants to sell a trilogy he should warn the readers up front. I find this the worst type of false advertising.
