The British produce excellent fantasy writers. Think Tolkein, Lewis, and Rowling. Following in that great tradition, Peter A. Flannery offers Battle Mage, an excellent epic fantasy. Two or three chapters in, readers realize they are in the hands of a highly skilled story teller. The action is intense, the scenery vivid, the characters well-drawn. You have an orphaned youth with a shameful past, a demonic horde bearing down on a defenseless town, a dire need for strong soldiers, dragons, and a battle mage. That’s just the beginning.
This title hangs out in the top 5-10K on Amazon and has garnered over 1,200 reader reviews with a current astonishing average of 4.8/5 stars, an absolutely incredible achievement. Five out of five stars from us. Highly recommended.
