Not bad, started off really good but fizzled for me a little towards the end. The story follows the main character Zahn, a relic diver as he is searching for an ancient magical relic. One such relic is on a movie studio. While he is there trying to find the relic, he comes across one of the most famous movie stars in the world. Someone that Zahn has been following most of his life. They get to talking and he ends up saving her from a deranged fan that tries to kill her. She of c

An interesting world and a well-written and paced story. No point in rehashing the blurb, but I enjoyed this and will certainly check out a sequel.

Shawn keys is amazing. I read the cost of being special series first. And this one was just as amazing. Starting the next one now.

I knew the book warned of harem shenanigans, but I didn't expect it to be this much smut. I thought there would have been a gripping story about magic coming back to the world.
What I got so far (reached halfway through the book) was a "nice" understanding guy, who is buffed, personable, is hung like a horse, and can make the ladies quiver multiple times. He is also gentle when it's needed, and a great fighter.

The villains (so far) are cartoony. I would have liked to finish this, but I can't put

Mature, adult themes crashes headlong into urban fantasy!

First, the review title says it all; sex and magic. This is a well-written novel intended for adults with a taste for urban fantasy. Second, Mr Keys is one of those authors that sucks the reader immediately with a lot of well-researched detail, so be warned! This won't be set aside easily for other mundane tasks.

Good story

I really enjoyed the story and the characters. Had to subtract a star for the multiple errors, in particular I found the repeated use of 'grinded' more than a little jarring.

Great book

Wow! Every thing was perfect. Great story and characters. The story was perfectly paced, the characters were fleshed out nicely and the sex was written very well in my humble opinion. My only dislike was how some of the relationships seemed a little rushed.

Just hates MCs that goes from supersmart martial arts expert to an idiot the next second. And there is so much that doesn't makes sense. This author seems to do this a lot. 2nd series I can't stand and dropped. Author is dropped! ...more

Male Laura Croft with a harem

The treasure Hunter plot is as old as literature, but it is rarely captured in a lighthearted way that still reads well. Very enjoyable

This was a fun read. Didn’t want to put it down. Plenty of action and lots of spice to keep it lively. I definitely recommend this author and all of his works. I’ve read a few different books if his and they’re all excellent

Shawn Keys kicks off the Relic Diver Series with a bang in Finding Real Magic! Fantastic harem with a serious Lara Croft, Indiana Jones vibe.
Dec 22, 2019 rated it it was amazing

Mr. Keys has a knack for creating deep immersive worlds with well thought out characters. Each with realistic emotions and motivations. The story is a great adventure that sets the stage for a much larger series. Great fun. Can't wait for the sequel.
