Drawing from the worlds of Magic, Martial Arts, Eastern Philosophy and Quantum Physics, award winning magician, astrophysicist, and martial artist, Thomas Chilton Meseroll, has penned a fictional battle of good and evil so rooted in factual principles, philosophies, and quantum mechanics, that the reader is compelled to question the true nature of magic ... the real battle between good and evil ... and the universal implications of both.

Magus: Master of Martial Magic, Book 1, The Magician's Primer is driven by main character, Nicholas Thompson, an astrophysics professor by day, Magic Castle performer by night, and all around fan of Dr. Strange. Recruited by a member of the Order of the Magi to train in the ways of true power and magic, Nicholas takes a sabbatical from teaching and heads to Pakistan to study in a cloister hidden deep within the region's mountains. Once there, Nicholas submerges himself in the history of the Magi, studying the origins of Zoroaster and Pythagoras as well as other historical figures tied to the Magi's special powers.

Through a transformational journey which takes Nicholas from Pakistan through India back to the U.S., and pairs him with Rada - a novice Magi - and Dr. Cobie Dulan - an Australian geophysicist with whom he falls in love - Nicholas becomes a Jedi-like hero who realizes that the fate of the world is resting upon his shoulders, and that the battle between good and evil is a galactic one.
