Alchemy, Sorcery & Magic: A New Age Begins by Jeffrey A. Michael

I had to stop about 20% into the book. It has an interesting premise, but the writing was not quite my style and the formatting on the Kindle included a bunch of repeated sections as well as sentences that ended prematurely and then picked up again a few pages later. Perhaps other formats of this story are not as frustrating to read.

This book has/shows promise and is a great introduction to the world of Alchemy, Sorcery and Magic. The story is a little disjointed at times, however i can see areas for the main characters development. I have no doubt the Author has already penned the following books in the series.
