Présentation de l'éditeur

August 2014: Significantly expanded and professionally edited

For centuries, mages perfected magic at the Order of the Dawn. Mastery over fire, wind, and storm. They live in the last free city in a world plagued by dark sorcerers. Talis Storm and friend Mara discover a terrible secret. The Jiserian Empire has targeted their city for attack. An army of undead soldiers. Flying necromancers. None have ever survived.

When a surprise aerial invasion hits the Order's temple, Talis casts fire magic for the first time. But his spell is wild and does more harm than good. Sorcerers try to capture Talis and Mara and they flee into the temple crypts. Awoken from an ancient rest, a fallen champion slays the sorcerers and gives Talis a legendary map. The map leads them on a quest to discover the lost temple of the sun.

To save his city, Talis must discover the power of magic locked away inside the ancient temple. And become a true fire mage.

Theft of Dragons, a new fantasy novel by John Forrester, is now available.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fire Mage is a Great Story! 4 novembre 2012
Par Dennis Waller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
For what it is, Fire Mage is a great story. Although the description is lacking a bit before you purchase the book, for the price it is hard to complain. It is a well written story, with great characters, and a wondrous world to boot. My only issue with the story is how darned short it is. I literally read this during an episode of the X factor. Again however I have to state that it was enjoyable and cheap. For those of you, like me, who prefer longer storys, I would suggest sticking to Series like The Blood and brotherhood Saga by Jeremy Laszlo, or the Mageborn series by Michael Manning.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Perplexing... 5 mai 2012
Par Me Lungo Ellen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had to review all my ethics regarding posting reviews with this book. Directly after reading it I posted a scalding review based on my experience but then deleted the review when I thought I should just go with the notion that 'if you have nothing nice to say then keep quiet'... But now I regret that delete.

The book feels rushed and unfinished. There is absolutely no character development and the plot, though containing enough 'epic fantasy' elements to qualify it for the genre, has somehow managed to cross lines I didn't even know existed as far as fantasy is concerned. This work should not have been praised as much as it was by the 4 and 5 star reviews. Those reviews made me buy a book and write off the negative reviews as 'petty' only to find myself feeling cheated, insulted as a reader and double guessing my own opinions.

Somewhere along the line the author has some notion as to what the average epic fantasy story should include and I found myself forgiving page after page of bad writing in the hopes that things will improve as the plot develops. Sadly this did not happen.

I do not expect every epic fantasy book I read to win awards for it to be enjoyable. Give me a good story and give me enough insight into the characters for me to develop some form of emotional rapport with them and I'm happy. When they use magic I want to play along and empathize with the challenges presented by the system used... maybe the author explains why things happen the way they do in a follow up book but I will never know. Maybe they all make sense and become likable later, maybe in the sequel one can get a notion of the world these characters live in... but you know what? By the time I read the last line I didn't care what happened to any of them.

When I pay to read fantasy I expect the author to make up something wonderful I can get lost in for a couple of hours. I was unable to slip into this world as I kept being reminded that I'm reading a book. I kept doing double takes on sentences and paragraphs while going 'huh' as the story happened. (no, the story did not unfold, it happened... this, then this and that and what the heck why not throw in a bit of that too).

I did not enjoy the experience and I doubt any other epic fantasy fan will either. I have read other books who weren't great and I won't recommend as excellent, but at least they gave me a few hours of escapism. This one definitively did not hold up to it's side of the bargain and until such time as the author can convince me that he sees his readers as more than easily fooled formula gobblers, I will avoid his work.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Poorly developed and in need of editing 16 novembre 2012
Par RRPearce - Publié sur Amazon.com

Even though Fire Mage appears targeted towards teens or pre-teens, the writing still leaves much to be desired. There is very little in the way of character or plot development. The threats are transparent and contrived, and no matter how great the threats appear to be, the hero seems to just happen to have a solution handy. The hero's abilities go from zero to 60 in less than a second, and with absolutely no internal growth. Although this is the first book in a trilogy, readers have the right to expect some form of plot resolution. There is none. The book is simply the first third of a story. It cannot stand alone. Additionally, the book is filled with internal inconsistencies and very poor editing. For instance, the end of a battle scene is described as having the sun shining brightly and one second later they are using magical firelight to search the fallen bodies in the darkness. Sloppy at best.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 So disappointed... 16 juin 2012
Par TheMexicanFox - Publié sur Amazon.com

So, after reading the summary and the initial review for the book I thought I was getting a steal for the price of $3.99. Little did I suspect that I'd be horribly disappointed.

The plot of the book drags you through the plot hitting every wall, bump, and tree along the way. Think "Avatar: The Last Airbender" movie, but in novel form. The book reels from event to event like a drunken Marine on leave for the first time in a year. Every character accepts every circumstance, no matter how insane or unrealistic as a given. I realize this is supposed to be Young Adult fiction, but I do expect the smallest dose of realism to accompany novels that I read, and at no point does trusting a group of 12-13 year olds with an ancient artifact that everyone in their city has been searching for for centuries strike me as a reasonable idea. Non-main characters fall into three categories. Plot Points (go do this while I act as Deus Ex Machina to solve your problems!), Antagonists (We don't like you because we're the enemy, or you're a spoiled rich boy, etc.) who are dead in 5 pages, and just dead in 5 pages.

The main characters aren't much better being primarily shallow, poorly conceptualized, and completely flat 1 dimensional idiots. They have magic! Yay! There is no explanation on how magic works, what is expected from a spell being cast, what is unusual, nothing. The main character gets hot/angry, magic boils out at levels that seem beyond any other character's capabilities, and no one says a word. Fireballs get tossed around like candy, while the 4 main protagonists all seem to be the best melee fighters ever, easily outstripping adults who are supposedly trained and ruthless killers.

There is nothing interesting about this story that you can't get from the summary. There is no real new information, the writing is awkward and stilted, it ends poorly, everyone makes idiotic decisions for no reason other than to smash plot obstacles... and it is just disappointing. The concept sounded interesting, and I thought there was a good possibility for this to be a brilliant young adult novel. Instead it is every poor young adult stereotype mixed together with a pretty picture on the cover. This is literally the first series that I will not finish, because it is just that bad.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Well, I managed to read it all the way through. 27 septembre 2012
Par Kevin Hasker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a very predictable story. As other reviewers have said, 2d characters and young person becomes powerful adventure fantasy. Because this is the 21st century there is a female lead as well as a hero, but there is basically no acknowledgement of her being female other than a few snide comments about the hero being her boyfriend but not knowing it. It is not well put together, does not flow, and has frequent "lets stick somthing in to keep the action going." Yes, JRR Tolkien did that in the Hobbit, but he was JRR Tolkien and at least the insertions were fun and enjoyable. Here? About the only thing I can say was that it was well enough written to keep me interested to the end.

Until I found out the last section was the first couple of chapters from the next book. That I couldn't bother with. OK, I glanced them over, but honestly. The best bit is that the first challeng they face in the second book is one that it is clear the hero should be able to overcome without any problem. I probably will remove this book from my Kindle soon and never regret it.

Any strongly positive reviews for this book are either written by friends/family or by people who have not read enough adventure fantasy. This book is not completley predictable, the author does put in some... novel elements, but I have seen more entertaining plot twists on D&D night.
