This book has a strong sense of character and setting. The Magus Ru'ark is dangerous to many, but he is loyal to his most faithful. It may seem like chance that he was able to purchase the beautiful Nelina to be his slave. However nothing seems to be left to chance as readers fall deeper into the fantasy of kingdoms and magic, romance and trust. There is more than meets the eye with every character that is introduced. Sometimes it is uncertain as to who to trust and knows more than they reveal t ...more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this book. The story focuses on the Magus who owns several pleasure slaves and Nelina is sold to him as a slave by her gross uncle. However, she wasn’t expecting that she would actually fall in love with him (what?!) and he too starts to catch feelings for her but he is conflicted because such is the way with romance.

This isn’t the typical romance book though. It has magical elements to it too and it was like nothing I’ve read before which I really appre

The Magus" is a stunner, magnificent in ambition. Absolutely Phenomenal! If you like thriller, suspense and Romance all mixed together this is it! I was scared, thrilled and intrigued. What an interesting book. The writer does an excellent job of pulling me in from the very beginning, I didn't expect to get totally wrapped up in this book but once I started there was no going back. This was a really great and magical start to a magus series. I came across this book purely by chance, but I'm so g ...more

Fun easy read!

This book is about a young girl named Nelina that is lost her parents as a child and then was raised by her evil uncle that sold her to what in this book is referred to as a "slaver" who then sold Nelina to a royal wizard, or a Magus, named Ru'ark. Ru'ark buys her to help save all the kingdoms from the waste, but along the way the two fall in love.
This story has a little bit for most interest areas, it has magic, love, sex, battles, and gore. It is over 300 pages, but it is a supe

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would!

The opening chapter, the opening scene even, was so very full of fan-service that usually bodes ill for the book that follows, but in this case it managed to keep the eroticism while not reducing Nelina (or other characters) to objects or robbing them of agency, despite the status of being a slave.

The book avoided a lot (but certainly not all) of the tropes common to romance particularly where there’s a very large power disparity between the protag

A magical romantic fantasy of the Magnus Ruark

This is the story of the Magnus and his path to keeping his people safe before all else, that is until a simple slave girl purchase finds him forced to choose. The story is well written and there are several twists along the romantic path of the story. Characters are well developed and relatable to the reader. This is a different kind of romance but a very entertaining in its own right. This magical romance will keep you reading to see what Magnus w

The Magus, the first of A Chronicle of Rebirth series, by the Fletcher husband and wife team is different from the things I usually read. But, I am glad I read it. It took me out of my comfort zone, but it also had themes that cross genres. For instance, this is a fantasy adventure romance. Many of the same themes of love and fantasy elements, but it is also unique. It follows the intense relationship between Nelina and The Magus in this fantasy world where readers meet kings, queens, dragons, a ...more

An adventurous journey of fantasy and magic. The Magus Ru’ark is a complex man, he is dangerous and harsh but soft and faithful.
