    Okay, I ll admit it I had a lot of trouble trying to get in to this book I attempted at least three times before it took What I mean by trouble getting in to the book, is the inability to get past the rather dry discussion of economics and governmental structure that our dear protagonist Magnus Gar is having with his sentient star ship I suppose that I was in the correct state of mind the third time, and I m glad that I was, because I found I actually enjoyed this little tale.I came to thi Okay, I ll admit it I had a lot of trouble trying to get in to this book I attempted at least three times before it took What I mean by trouble getting in to the book, is the inability to get past the rather dry discussion of economics and governmental structure that our dear protagonist Magnus Gar is having with his sentient star ship I suppose that I was in the correct state of mind the third time, and I m glad that I was, because I found I actually enjoyed this little tale.I came to this book not realizing that it was set well deep inside a well constructed universe of previous novels, all by the same author My copy of the book identified it as the first book in the Rogue Wizard series, with the one that Goodreads lists as book 1 belonging to an entirely different series Heirs To The Warlock I suppose that since all these are spinoffs or sequel series to the original Warlock series along with the Wizard in Rhyme series and since there are a lot of character cross overs, there also exists a lot of confusion about how things fit together.So, then, had I read previous books in this universe, I might have been able to surpass the rather discordant prelude and jump in to the main story with ease, as the prelude might have madesense But I cannot go back and change the past.A Wizard in Mind is the story of Magnus D Armand, also known as Gar, and how he decided to keep a planet from being exploited by thetechnologically advanced traders of an intergalactic empire He does this by pageantry and incursion, entering the trust of a young man named Gianni, son of an influence welder In this position and operating as the strong man Gar, he drops hints, wields psychic influence, leads skirmishes, supplements technology, and outright demands that things go his way.One would think that this would lead to a very boring novel since Gar Magnus doesn t encounter any real opposition, except for the very real threat of death due to renaissance weaponry pikes and cannon balls One would be wrong The novel is fantastic, likely because it is told from the perspective of poor, trusting Gianni who seems to want to do nothingthan hump the first female who crosses his path that isn t his mother You root for Gianni s sewing of wild oats even as you hope that Magnus Gar won t betray the trust that has been placed in him.While most of this book came off as a light read, minus the oddly intellectual prologue, the descriptions of renaissance era war are gripping and realistic If you are a battle buff, you ll like this book for that, alone.I recommend this book to anyone looking for some light beach reading, with the caveat that they have to tough out the prologue and understand that the rest of the book is nothing like that odd beginning Minus one star for the prologue

    There are some interesting concepts in the book, but overall this is book about revolution and politics Yes everything happens in distant planet and there are some hard scifi elements, but it needs .

    This is the first in a spin off series The original series is the Warlock series by this author In that series, Rod Gallowglass becomes Lord High Warlock on the planet Gramarye, a planet founded by refugees from the SCA Magnus D Armand is his oldest son.This series is this first in the series of adventures by Magnus as he travels to other planets with oppressive governments seeking to free the people from them.Overall, this book is a little weaker than the first series which was fantastic Ha This is the first in a spin off series The original series is the Warlock series by this author In that series, Rod Gallowglass becomes Lord High Warlock on the planet Gramarye, a planet founded by refugees from the SCA Magnus D Armand is his oldest son.This series is this first in the series of adventures by Magnus as he travels to other planets with oppressive governments seeking to free the people from them.Overall, this book is a little weaker than the first series which was fantastic Having said that, this is still a good, fun book that is well worth reading However, it doesn t quite measure up to the Warlock series To get the most out of this book, you should read the Warlock series first Or at least the first book in that series The Warlock In Spite Of Himself This book, like the earlier series, mixes magic with science fiction The basic source of the magic in this book and in the earlier series is psychic powers So the magic has a natural explanation rather than supernatural If you re looking for a good fantasy mixed with science fiction, you ll like this book It s a good book, but it just misses being great So that s why I only gave it four stars, instead of five

    I wish I could give it 3 1 2 stars At first I was a little disappointed as I was expecting something different, something with lotsmagic sorcery involved As I got further into the story, though, I found the action gripping and the story well told.The premise is interesting Some worlds have fallen back into the dark ages and there are people who want to help them move toward democracy There are also other groups of people who have a very different desire.We begin the story with Magnus D I wish I could give it 3 1 2 stars At first I was a little disappointed as I was expecting something different, something with lotsmagic sorcery involved As I got further into the story, though, I found the action gripping and the story well told.The premise is interesting Some worlds have fallen back into the dark ages and there are people who want to help them move toward democracy There are also other groups of people who have a very different desire.We begin the story with Magnus D Armand, a rogue wizard He learns that Petrarch is a world divided and decides he will give its inhabitants a nudge toward democracy He soon learns that because of an outside group that opposes democracy he will need to do muchthan nudge the world forward

    Bad guys named SCENT, PEST, AEGIS and DDT, a computer named Herkimer, a planet named Petrarch, and a 7 foot hero named Magnus Groan Too much like James Bond I almost gave up on this book during the prologue But I persevered By chapter four, I was pretty well hooked Except for Gianni wanting to hump any reasonably pretty female, it was a good story Magnus had his work cut out for him, everything from fighting the above acronymed bad or misinformed rivals, to competition with things i Bad guys named SCENT, PEST, AEGIS and DDT, a computer named Herkimer, a planet named Petrarch, and a 7 foot hero named Magnus Groan Too much like James Bond I almost gave up on this book during the prologue But I persevered By chapter four, I was pretty well hooked Except for Gianni wanting to hump any reasonably pretty female, it was a good story Magnus had his work cut out for him, everything from fighting the above acronymed bad or misinformed rivals, to competition with things in poor Gianni s sleep, to a bonk on the head which caused him temporary amnesia I m looking forward to readingabout Magnus adventures Good read

    As a story, pretty flat with a lot of deus ex machina.

    Magnus D Armand s adventures continue


  9. Jeremy Jeremy says:

    I would rate it better if it was from Magnus s POV Also, some of the action and dialogue seemed cheesy
