    One thought on “Alien Arcana”

    1. I really wanted to like this book because because while the series was never revolutionary it still offered solid entertainment and a lot of interesting ideas But while this book continues to provide well written action scenes and a mostly interesting and believable world building it has a number of serious flaws that prevented me from truly enjoying it The most serious flaw is that the central plot storyline is simply stupid and makes less sense the it progresses it starts interestingly enough [...]

    2. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review POSSIBLE SPOILERS I found this book to be fast paced and gripping I virtually ignored the world to read this book in one sitting The story was interesting and complex and kept me glued to the page.My first thoughts on finishing this book, aside from wow , was No which I can t elaborate on without spoiling the ending The other was exactly how short is Damien I have since read the book again and whilst my feelings about the ending remain the same, [...]

    3. I was happily surprised about a release of Alien Arcana in an audiobook edition Have to admit, really fantastic surprise Anyway it was my pleasure to listen to Mage Damien Montgomery s new investigation murder case, which lead him into the shadows and secrets of Mars Great work The main storyline was fast paced and gripping for the entire time, I loved it whole HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WORK

    4. While the first novel in the starship mage series could be considered a space opera, it quickly devolved into Hand Damien Montgomery being drawn into one conspiracy after another In the second book he had to bring down a corrupt planet government and in the third he had to stop a war between two planets Though this planet pointed to a conspiracy probably at the hands of the Unarcana world Legatus By stopping this crisis Damien stopped a far greater conflict that could potentially have drawn in t [...]

    5. Another fabulous book in Glynn Stewart s Starship s Mage series Damien is enjoying his first vacation in years when the King calls to send him on a murder investigation at an archaeological dig site A prominent professor has been killed, apparently by another mage, and his body found among the most important discovery in centuries Expecting this to be a fairly easy case to work when compared to keeping the peace or preventing interplanetary war, Damien cuts his vacation short and boards the newl [...]

    6. Before you read this one, please note it is the fourth book in a series you need to have read the first three books or this one won t make much sense to you Similar to the previous books in the series there is a lot of action and conflict and a now seasoned Montgomery faces some desperate characters and situations The author has an engaging writing style and makes you feel as if you are right in the middle of the action Once again you re left wanting a little once you finish the book, which is [...]

    7. I liked this book, but I liked the previous two in the series better This book starts with Damien called in for a murder investigation and progresses to a massive conspiracy Damien keeps getting attacked when he should be completely safe by people trying to do a cover up on what he discovers possible spoilers It bothered me that there were SO many people involved in this conspiracy and yet they were able to keep it secret long term I find it a stretch to believe that a huge number of people and [...]

    8. A brilliant read in the best tradition of Science Fantasy Once again Glynn Stewart delivers a universe that is readily believable with characters that remind us of what it means to be human Yes, some of the plot is predictable but that makes sense when characters are being themselves and not being twisted to fit the plot.Start with the first book the context is needed to understand the universe these books are set in Readers of David Weber and Christopher Nuttall will not be disappointed with th [...]

    9. Another great book in the seriesHow does he keep knocking this series out of the park This is a great continuation of the series and I can t wait for the next book Except I have to Sigh.

    10. If you ve read the series up to here, you know why I m sticking Start with the first, Starship Mage , if you like that one then you ll find the series consistently delivers Remember, this is entertainment.A good read.

    11. Good old fashioned shoot em up On to the 5th book I have the first 4 on 2 days and enjoyed them immensely tho they are not the kind i usually read Damien is a likable super hero with human quaities

    12. Still very much worth the read, but I felt a little bit like Damien was holding on too tight to the Idiot Ball at times, in order to advance the plot as desired I felt he didn t focus enough on investigation, but the book was still good overall and still very much enjoyable.

    13. Mage Damien Montgomery, Hand of the Mage King of Mars is a very cool character and following him thru the troubles was fun My time spent on that book was just perfect.

    14. Kind of a slow one for me Im still hooked for the next one I didn t dislike it but it didn t have the same zest as the others for me.

    15. I was disappointed that the plot twist in this one was introduced way too late in the arc and totally obvious The previous books integrated the surprises much seamlessly.

    16. A good detective story in a sci fi, fantasy setting The very end is a bit rushed, and out of the pace of the whole book.

    17. I keep enjoying these despite being outside my recent reading tastes Great characters make the best reading Give these a try

    18. Overall an adventurous, entertaining read I did feel that the whole thing felt like a setup for the next book, but not enough to dock much of a rating.

    19. Reading this 4th book in the Starship s Mage series, it quickly becomes obvious that the first three books should be treated as back story and that the real focus of Damien s story is just beginning here Glynn Stewart has been able to create a fun world, marrying aspects of both scifi and fantasy to immerse the reader in an action packed and interesting epic.One of the best ebook series I ve read so far and I m very excited to see where Stewart takes the story

    20. Awaiting the next The series is phenomenal, I have enjoyed watching the author growing with each book Next is supposed to be out in March Where is it

    21. The best in the series yet Alien Arcana represents yet another step forward for series I d give it a 4.5 if I could.What I liked Continues the trend toward making the series an excellent Jedi space opera The conspiracy is the most interesting of the series yet Sets the foundation for some promising supporting characters down the line Leaves Montgomery in an interesting position going into the next book.What I didn t like 0 for 3 with Montgomery and love interests.As I ve read the Starship Mage s [...]

    22. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.This is quickly becoming one of my favorite series, right up there with the Saxon Chronicles IMO in terms of just how much it grips me I find its pretty rare that you find a series where each book grips you so intensely that you shut out everything else but the book in your hands, then when you finish you go back to re read the rest of the series.So in Alien Arcana we continue the story of Damien Montgomery, one thing I truly do love about all f [...]

    23. I was given an advanced copy of this book for my honest review by the author.Damien Montgomery is a Hand of The Mage King He is the only Hand who is almost as powerful as the royal family He is rune wright Only members of the royal family are rune wrights This is a closely guarded secret War is looming with planets in the Empire who abhor magic Even if it s required for ships to travel to one system from another.Damien is sent to investigate the death of a professor on an archeological dig Damie [...]
