Review by Charles Gramlich

A Mage of None Magic begins with a short history lesson. A thousand years earlier than the time of our immediate story, a wizard prodigy enrolled at the College of Magic and Conjuring Arts—think Lord Voldemort rather than Harry Potter—and as his abilities grew so did his arrogance and his search for forbidden magic. His name was Uhniethi, and
I have had the pleasure of reading other, shorter works by this author, and I'm happy to say that his first novel length work is quite a competent effort.

I've read a fair bit of fantasy, and any initial piece of writing in a fantasy world has a couple of tremendous disdavantages to overcome. The first is that it has to establish an entire world for the reader, without reading like a textbook. Long passages of dry exposition, family trees and history are poison to fantasy novels, and Drown succe

In the first book of the Heart of the Sisters series, A. Christopher Drown sets the stage for your ordinary fantasy novel with an apprentice magician – Niel – while traveling, finds himself caught up in a quest with an unusual group of people who think he’s much greater and stronger than he appears to be, but Niel soon learns that he has more of a role to play in this world.

Written with vivid imagery Drown evokes the senses as he builds a fantastical world where magic is real and steeped in mythos. The hero of the story is a young man; likable and with simple desires. Yet, he finds himself caught up in events beyond his control. More than a simple coming of age type of epic, it delves deeper. Neil finds strength and courage in himself and keeps going with a steadfast determination, despite his initial belief that he knows little of any worth. Beautifully crafted, t ...more
An enjoyable fantasy novel. I really like the writing style and voice he uses. I also like the idea of an unsure, unconfident hero.

When I read A Mage of None Magic, I was transported to a fantasy world where I was again a young teen reading my favorite coming of age adventure novel. :) I was completely smitten with the world and the plot, and, for the first time in years, I read in every free moment I had.

A Mage of None Magic is rich and engaging, and crafted with a skilled and deft wit and restraint. I can't wait to read the next one.

Aaron Drown resides in Tennessee, just outside of Memphis. A Navy brat from Brunswick, Maine, childhood for him was a cross-country adventure encountering all shapes, shades and sizes of people and places. In school he was one of the kids who usually finished his work first, and took to amusing himself by performing little stories at his seat with erasers and scraps of paper — most often some vari ...more
