Editorial Reviews

The ALAN Review - Joanne Peters
It is 30,000 BC, a time when Dragons, Little People, mages, and ordinary men live together on Earth, the Atlan Domain. Then, as now, peaceful co-existence is a dream, and the future is threatened by a vision of impending destruction. Creatures from outside the Earth will bring about this "Earthdoom," unless the magicians of the Atlan Domain can unite their power and avert this apocalypse. Lithim, twelve-year-old son of the mage Mulng, together with his companions Gra-kwo and Alglinnadorn, find their will and magical powers tested, as they aid Mulng and the other mages in finding the mage-traitor who is conspiring against the plan to save the Earth. The second book in the Age of Magic trilogy, A Trial of Magic offers a suspenseful read for younger readers (grades 6-9) of fantastic fiction.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-- This second volume in a proposed trilogy continues the adventures of 12-year-old Lithim and his companions in the ancient past when magic flourished on Earth. Many human mages, along with a dragon and a mysterious ``Alfar,'' plot a defense against the coming ``Earthdom,'' an attack of creatures from the sky that they have all foreseen. Their planning is delayed, though, first by the priestesses of the Temple of the Mother, who do not believe in the Earthdom, and then by the powerful magic of another Alfar mage who wants to hasten the Earth's destruction. Where The Magical Fellowship (Lodestar, 1991) mainly set the stage and introduced characters, A Trial of Magic is much more involving, with many tense and exciting moments. The evil mage's siege of the city, led by thousands of enchanted rats and by the skeletons of dead warriors, is particularly gripping. The characters, though, remain fairly dull and undeveloped. Even Lithim, who has several heroic moments, never really comes to life. Still, the action-packed plot and the intriguing premise of the Earthdom are enough to entertain most readers, particularly those who enjoyed the first book. The conclusion is satisfying, as the immediate dangers are resolved, but will leave fans anxious to read the final volume, in which the Earthdom will finally be faced. --Steven Engelfried, Pleasanton Library, CA

    The Age Of Magic Trilogy

    This book is an awesome book for a fantasy bookreport. It is a cross between The Lord Of The Rings and The Age of an Old Mage. It is a remarkable book for kids and even for the ones who enjoy Magic Fantasies.
