Overview

Altin Meade is a sorcerer with a curse. Seeking to avoid a looming doom, he sets his magical sights on the stars�a quest that will likely bring about the very consequence he's seeking to escape.

Far across the galaxy, Ensign Orli Pewter of planet Earth has a looming doom of her own�one of loneliness, depression and, worse, a race of genocidal aliens known as "Hostiles" seeking to destroy humanity. Trapped aboard a spaceship she never asked to be upon, Orli is in a fight for both her life and her sanity.

Worlds apart, Altin and Orli share a destiny, but neither knows the other is alive. The Hostiles know. And they have other plans.

It has been a long time that I have read a book that takes me away so much that during my workday, I find myself wondering what the characters are doing at the moment. I have been talking about this book to everyone I know and even some I don't!! Enjoy!

The best sci-fi book I have read in a really long time. I could not put it down. Can not wait till book number 2 is out.

Phenomenal book! The series is a great read for anyone looking for a cross between Dungeons and Dragons and Battlestar Galactica with a little War of the Worlds sprinkled in or simply into sci-fan.

I liked the story. It was predictable but fun. What i didn't like was the occasional swearing, but that was to be somewhat expected due to the military background of half the story.

This was an exceptional read. Absolutely loved it from front to back. Occasionally wanted to slap Altin around a bit, but that might have been the point. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Magic is really not my cup of tea, but I really enjoyed this book. It constantly surprised me, held my attention. At times I simply could not put it down. Thanks for a great read,

Had I encountered this book at tweleve years of age I'd have been hooked. It is the perfect merge of science fiction and fantasy, as if the mages of your favorite D&D adventure got together and created their own version of NASA. Imaginative, "The Galactic Mage" does a great job imagining how magic could solve problems like the vacuum of space and shields. Even better, the "hostiles" in the book are brilliantly constructed and envisioned. Where the narrative falls apart is in the very two dimensional characters. Even Altin and Orli, the two main characyers are bi-polar vacilating between depression and manic action. The romance between the two makes no sense and can only compare to the Lucas wrought disaster of Anakin and Padme's courtship in Star Ears. Is the book worth reading? Yep. But don't expect much depth.

Got this book because the facebook page said if you liked final fantasy you would like this. Didnt seem in any way whatsoever related to anything final fantasy other than its a fantasy story. Should have said if you like fantasy/sci fi then you will like this. Good read overall, nice story and interesting ideas, i would recommend it if your looking for a good read
