In Warrior Prime, Gischler returns to the fantasy world of Helva that he first explored with his ink mage trilogy several years ago.

Last year, I read the A Fire Beneath the Skin series, and I remember it being enjoyable. That's all I really remember about it to be honest. There was nothing particularly memorable, just simple fun Fantasy with decent characters.

This book is a cut above. The author seems to have come into his own as far as character depth, development, plot pacing, and it read better than any book in the other series.

There are one or two familiar faces, and even they are more interesting to read about here. T

The Ink Mage saga continues - in a great way. The new book from Victor Gischler continues 20+ years after the Ink Mage trilogy and does so without doing shame on the earlier books. Well worth a read for all you Fantasy fans out there

A lovely written story about magic and difference between to nations.
I really enjoyed the magical system - the creation of ink Mage's and the possibilities for their abilities.
Now looking forward for book two.

I hate when fantasy is confusing. And boring. But mostly boring.

I liked Ink and Bone (although the latter books sort of lose their luster) but what is an ink mage?

There is SO much fantasy out there - most of it gods awful - so I wouldn't waste my time here.
