    • A Mage of None Magic: The Heart of the Sisters, Book One.A. Christopher Drown Tyrannosaurus Press, 2009274 pgsBN: 9780971881976Review by Charles GramlichA Mage of None Magic begins with a short history lesson. A thousand years earlier than the time of our immediate story, a wizard prodigy enrolled at the College of Magic and Conjuring Arts—think Lord Voldemort rather than Harry Potter—and as his abilities grew so did his arrogance and his search for forbidden magic. His name was Uhniethi, an [...]


    • I have had the pleasure of reading other, shorter works by this author, and I'm happy to say that his first novel length work is quite a competent effort. I've read a fair bit of fantasy, and any initial piece of writing in a fantasy world has a couple of tremendous disdavantages to overcome. The first is that it has to establish an entire world for the reader, without reading like a textbook. Long passages of dry exposition, family trees and history are poison to fantasy novels, and Drown succe [...]


    • An Interesting ReadFirst of all, this book was a little different from what I thought it was going to be. The cover implied more of a young adult fantasy and what I got was more of an adult fantasy. So, I was unprepared for what happened to Anese, Ennalen, and Cally as well as what Uhnieithi unleashed on his enemies.I’m torn because I wanted this book to be longer (~350+ pages) and still end at the same point in the story, yet I thought the beginning half of the book was really slow. Even thou [...]


    • In the first book of the Heart of the Sisters series, A. Christopher Drown sets the stage for your ordinary fantasy novel with an apprentice magician – Niel – while traveling, finds himself caught up in a quest with an unusual group of people who think he’s much greater and stronger than he appears to be, but Niel soon learns that he has more of a role to play in this world.There are two facets that separate A Mage of None Magic from an ordinary fantasy novel that would be easily forgotten [...]


    • Set in a world of magic and mystery, Christpher Drown’s A Mage Of None Magic is a tale of powerful deeds and misdeeds built onto a well-timed and well-told creation mythology. Two threads intertwine in this story, one of apprentice Neil seeking to save the world, and the other of a mythically powerful Uhniethl bent destroying it in the past. But good and evil are no simple concepts in this novel, and the characters aren’t simple either, as the author reveals with perfectly timed surprises.A [...]


    • Written with vivid imagery Drown evokes the senses as he builds a fantastical world where magic is real and steeped in mythos. The hero of the story is a young man; likable and with simple desires. Yet, he finds himself caught up in events beyond his control. More than a simple coming of age type of epic, it delves deeper. Neil finds strength and courage in himself and keeps going with a steadfast determination, despite his initial belief that he knows little of any worth. Beautifully crafted, t [...]


    • When I read A Mage of None Magic, I was transported to a fantasy world where I was again a young teen reading my favorite coming of age adventure novel. :) I was completely smitten with the world and the plot, and, for the first time in years, I read in every free moment I had.A Mage of None Magic is rich and engaging, and crafted with a skilled and deft wit and restraint. I can't wait to read the next one.


    • An enjoyable fantasy novel. I really like the writing style and voice he uses. I also like the idea of an unsure, unconfident hero.
