Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Summoned to a world in the midst of apocalypse, Daniel Black would have his hands full just staying alive. Add in refugees, desperate soldiers, scheming nobles and a pair of thoroughly wicked witches, and life is going to be very busy indeed. Good thing he has magic of his own to even the scales. But will even that be enough?

Warning: This novel contains graphic violence, inventive sex, unconventional opinions and a protagonist who has no interest in being normal. Read at your own risk.

Loki s'est échappé et s'est associé avec Gaia, leur objectif : les Dieux du Vahalla ! Leur objectif second : l'éradication de la race des Hommes, en Europe pour commencer.
Cette série de roman se situe donc dans une Terre alternative où une force inconnue chez nous, la Magie, est prodigieusement effective.
Dans ce monde, les Dieux Nordiques ont mis à sac l'Olympe et ses Dieux grecques, mais les Dieux sont notoirement difficiles à éliminer !
La preuve, Hécate, déesse grecque de la mort va cherche Daniel Black, programmeur rôliste, pour le transplanter dans ce monde et protéger sa dernière adoratrice, la délicieuse Cecil.

Dans une situation amoureuse et judiciaire délicate, Daniel accepte le deal et traverse la barrière des mondes. Ce faisant il reçoit pouvoir sur quelques domaines de son choix : la magie de la Terre, du Corps, un peu du Feu mais surtout la capacité de meta manipulation de la magie elle-même.

Le ressort principal de cette série est alors le classique contraste entre mentalité et connaissances d'un homme moderne transporté dans une société ultra-hiérarchique et d'un niveau technologique médiéval.
L'usage imaginatif de la magie, basé sur la compréhension physique du monde,, fournit à Black une puissance extraordinaire.
Il révolutionnera à lui seul l'usage de la magie et recueillera une partie des déshérités de ce monde, condamnés à la fois par l'offensive de l'Hiver (le Flibumwinter des légendes nordiques) et les préjugés et racismes ordinaires.

This book manages what others unfortunately fail to do: using a silly story concept seriously and making it work.

Of course, this story is not really complex. Big moral concepts won't be the main part of the hero's concerns. He is here to survive and protect the girl he has been sent here to protect. He will react to threats, take some preemptive actions, etc. Don't expect a depth of characters similar to Sanderson's work, for example.

But the way this modern engineer uses his mana magic is both funny and plausible. The way magic is an integral part of this world's society is a refreshing change to universes where mages are too rare or barely use their powers to do efficient work. And while the universe is not perfectly fleshed out (yet), and can be confusing at times (Greek gods have been what? by who? err, can you explain, please?), it is still defined enough to allow the story to go on.

As mentioned in other comments, the hero is powerful, but not omnipotent. He makes mistakes, he faces threats too big to defeat, in short, he is human. Oh, and he is definitely a male.

Indeed, the author is walking a fine line between unshameful sexual freedom and misogyny, but there are too many strong female protagonists (and heroins) for this series to be only the teenage fantasy of a male writer. Even though, in some parts... yeah, definitely, the author probably enjoyed his work a little too much and used it as a way to criticise ultrafeminists - but it's far from being in the same league as Gor, for example.

So, a pleasant reading, fast paced, witty and with not-too-perfect heroes that are quite likeable.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "I'm counting on you to munchkin the hell out of it." 3 avril 2017
Par dani zweig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Good: Well-executed page-turner. Someone from our world is sent to a world with magic, and is able to parlay a good general understanding of our science and technology into innovative ways to do magic. Initially, he's just trying to keep some people alive as monsters swarm his new world and a new ice age rolls in. Eventually, he'll be trying to stave off Ragnarok.

Poor: The premise - an knowledge of modern tech turns into game-changing magic - has been done to death, and has been done better. This instance is a *too* munchkin: Whatever threatens the protagonist, the reader knows that the appropriate counter or defense will emerge from his back pocket.

I'm neutral on the sex. There's too much of it, with two many people, in too many combinations. On the other hand, that's not entirely a bad thing in a mind-candy read.

On balance, it's mind-candy - and I'm getting the sequel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fighting, Fornicating, Fun, and Food 13 juillet 2016
Par Film Critic 2302487 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Do you love a game where you have to struggle every minute? Where you have to crawl through broken glass for a mile to achieve a marginal victory? Are you one of those players that scoffs at games where the player is given massive powers to destroy his enemies, and instead wants a burning challenge to ignite his ego and needs drudgery and sacrifice disguised as "Challenge" to keep himself interested?

Then you will hate this book.. because this story is for people who want our games to escape our regular existence and start off really powerful.

Daniel Black is a guy that has his real life turn horrible and in his moment of greatest dispare he is given the option to enter a new world with the powers of a mighty sorcerer. Even better he gets to choose his powers, and like many "character optimizer" (or "munchkins" as they are vulgarly called) Daniel and us KNOW how to make a powerful character.

So he ends up in this new world, brimming with power, and begins to win. Just win. Battles, Women, Property, Everything. Does he have it pretty easy? Yes he does, because he PLANNED IT. He did not enter this world saying "I think I want the powers of a janitor, maybe with a beer belly, but sort of strong."

So if you play Role-Playing games and you tend to be a "character optimizer" by taking the best mix of powers you can. Then I say, this is the book for you. Nothing serious, just fun.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good fantasy book. 22 juin 2017
Par Vikarti Anatra - Publié sur Amazon.com

Good 'high fantasy' story. Especially good that Daniel gets abilities he chooses and after that he is on his own (no MORE Hecate's help), and it was his idea after to remember about E=mc^2. He usually wins encounters but if he looses or partially-loses, he just makes sure this particual kind of mistake will not happen again.
Middle-ages mores can upset to some people (in fact they upset Daniel too but he didn't have a lot of choice and try to at least follow his upbridging (so no sex with 14 y/o EVEN IF said 14 y/o agrees and it's ok in this world).
Daniel's attitude that knowledge IS power remind me of some other characters in books I read long ago, like Cyrus Smith.

Negative issues:
- it's not explained why this world is alt-Europe with mostly same gods (even
- Hecate never mentioned he will get to knew language, yet he has no problem talking and reading but it's not magical language ability (he doesn't knew ALL languages).
- why 'pennies' as currency. This is ANOTHER world after all?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Old SiFi Dawg, I like this author ... 16 juin 2017
Par David Whitelaw - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When all the wonderful Sci-fi authors of the 40's and 50's began to disappear, I began to look for more. I have been fortunate, and when I am able to find a new author with great creativity and sound character development as we have here I feel confident with the future of Sci-fi. Now enough of that. My first book from this author was Perilous Waif, a hard Sci-fi book built in a very complex universe. This book resides in Fantasy, both very interesting and good reads. I look forward to reading more - enjoy. PS a note to the author, for heaven's sake charge more for these wonderful reads, I want this to be your day job.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Overall it is okay. Feels short, but I like it. Would read again & I want book 2. 22 décembre 2014

This is very much a male-power fantasy, so be aware. It is a very entertaining male-power fantasy as well. Our guy is strong, fights enemies but our MC is not too overpowered, and he has sex with beautiful women. Reminds me of Conan but with magic.

Now, if you read this book you may find that it feels like 2 different authors wrote it even though I suspect it was set down and then come back to. There is the part prior to Chapter 12 which is the first 70% of the book, and the part after. Prior to Chapter 12 the story is about how Daniel is gathering people to himself, exploring what he can do, and trying to secure the safety of Cerise as he is charged to do. After Chapter 12 (no spoilers) the tone and style changed. Daniel is now a gung-ho, kick-ass magician but his emotions seem to have shifted. Prior to Ch12 he would have regretted it if his actions if the people under his protection died. After Ch12 (really, towards the last chapter) he is more of a "Oh, people died. Moving on" attitude. I get some of why this happened, but the shift was really jarring.

If it is important to you, I'd also like to mention the spelling & grammar. Grammar seems mine, but the spelling... the author is not consistent. At one point a character's name is Oskar. Then it is Oscar (repeatedly). It feels like the author wrote the Oskar vs. Oscar sections separately and merged them together without doing a read through. Also, there are repeated mix-ups between alter & altar.
