Set in an alternate England where magic and science have coexisted since records began. Tim's mother vanished mysteriously four years ago and he is going on a quest to find out why.
Secrets, hidden for hundreds of years, are about to be revealed. Things everyone believes to be true are about to be turned on their head. His search will bring him face to face with evil in human and ghostly form. It will lead to death and destruction as well as the righting of many wrongs. The civilisations of Jalon are facing a slow death.
Since the destruction of the Magician Kings over years ago, the human population has dwindled and a once united kingdom is little more than a series of shrinking city states. The Fairie have retreated to the forests and the Giants to their mountain forts. If there are dragons left in the world, no one has seen them. Not that they know it. Now only a few cities remain and trade between them has become increasingly difficult. Jalia is forced to leave her home and travel the trade roads after being betrayed by a treacherous king. She encounters a young man called Daniel on the road, Jalon will never be the same again.
Wherever Jalia goes she gets into trouble. It's in her nature. She is usually more than capable of getting herself out of it again. Skilled with sword and knives and trained by the best that Bagdor has to offer, she thinks nothing of killing anybody who gets in her way. Daniel believes in justice and giving people second chances, so they are often at odds. Given Jalia's nature, they are usually too busy fighting for their lives to have the time to think about it. No one goes to Ranwin and comes back. The world around them is getting more dangerous as slavers are raiding farms and villages to find slaves for the mines in Telmar.
Jalia hates slavers, which will prove bad news for them. What they do there changes Daniel forever and he is forced to confront the man he has become. Now as much warrior as trader, he and Jalia head east along the ancient Magicians Road. Heading into the heartland of the slave trade and following the lure of gold.

They are heading for the city of Brinan where the Mine Owners Association keep their gold. The presence of gold and Jalia in the same place means that trouble can only be a footstep away. One thing leads to another and Jalia and Daniel find they have no choice but to destroy the Mine Owners or die trying.
It's true that Jalia could give their gold back, but that was never really an option. Each island is fortified and they are outnumbered hundreds to one. Action adventures with a smattering of magic. As a result, its original purpose to hide the heir to the Magician Kings and suppress his magical power was weakened. Magic loves a template and Daniels inherent magical power, already having healed his brother, became focused on healing.
Daniel used healing magic on a number of occasions over the next couple of years, which he remained oblivious to, though Jalia took note.

Jalia decided they should return to Bagdor, having become sickened by their roles as assassin. Continual use of the magic ring and dagger however, had made them careless. Book 5 of Jalia - World of Jalon Jalia and Daniel continue their journey to Slarn onboard the Steam Dragon, one of the three fabled steamboats from antiquity. Their objective is to retrieve the magic ring and dagger in the possession of Gally Sorn, but this will not prove an easy task. Many of these worlds hate wizards and take steps to kill them. A very small number of worlds combine high technology with sophisticated magic.
Jake knows the Progenitors are such a people even though he knows next to nothing about them. A mystery exists on Earth. Thus the Earth is starting to be noticed by some of the more formidable powers in the Multiverse. He wants a quiet life, though his attitude has started to change because of the fun he is having at university.
He is far from ready to lead people into battle, let alone the major powers of the multiverse. All in all, he would rather move timber with a fork lift truck than fight evil. Jake has already proven that prophecy can be broken. Many have plans for him, but he is determined to stay true to himself whatever the cost. But I am not in it only for the money. I have a lot more to say about that world, but I need a break between books to follow flights of imagination in other directions.
I could have started Tom and Laura IV. In the end I concluded that there was a world that would make an interesting contrast between Wizards books and might even sell a few copies. I used to write young adult, now I write adult books with sexual encounters as a major part of the mix, and Magic Limited is a series with adult story lines and themes.
Paul is a fun guy. Married and divorced he has distinct ideas on what he wants to do with his life. He had the option to sell magic and seized it with both hands, but he avoids the responsibilities that come with his lineage. He lives in my favourite place Central London , and is part of that multicultural environment. He mingles with the rich and the poor, the honest and the crooks, the successful and the failures.
I hope you take the time to read about Paul. They both have a taste for strong women and a tendency to make fools of themselves. The Heist will be on sale from the 2nd of February.

John Booth. The world spun and we landed hard on the cobbles where I had loaded the cart a few days earlier. The ground shook and the buildings trembled. A mushroom cloud grew in the sky from the direction of our warehouse. The girls had fallen onto their hands and knees, mouths open as the mushroom cloud was followed by a blinding hemisphere of light. We needed protection from the coming shock wave.
I started to create the magic required.

Someone grabbed my shoulder and I was turned around and a fist hit my jaw. Falling backwards I used magic to avoid banging my head on the cobbles. Even so, I was dazed. There was blood on his knuckles and anger on his face. He stepped forward.
See a Problem?
A howling fiery wind attacked the building. Horses and people screamed. Josh watched in astonishment as a cart flew past us, his desire to hit me forgotten. Then I saw Lana and Esta in crouching positions with their hands raised, deflecting the firestorm with a combination of magic and sheer will power. I stood up and concentrated my magic. My energy shield passed through theirs and the girls collapsed in exhaustion. The shield spread outwards, nullifying the firestorm for thousands of yards. When I sank down to my knees the only sounds were of buildings burning and the collapse of roofs.
I was standing spread-eagled in front of her, my legs and arms forming an X. Whatever was holding me in place was invisible and I tried to imagine it gone with no luck at all. At least I was clothed. She stood inches from me, our faces level. Moving closer she blew gently on my face, her breath sweet, warm, and intoxicating.
Then she licked me from the bottom of my jaw to the middle of my right cheek. I felt a familiar tingle as certain parts of my body responded on automatic pilot. She wore a toga which she undid and let drop to the floor. The rules of the Conference seemed to have changed, at least as far as I was concerned.
She put a finger to her lower lip and tilted her head, contemplating her next move. I closed my eyes and willed myself to Fluffy. When I opened them she was still there and I was still bound. I was suddenly naked. A large cube of ice appeared in her hand and she rested it against my chest. It was surprisingly cold and I gritted my teeth. They drew up into my abdomen in response. Let me go. This one is very good indeed. One person found this helpful. Format: Kindle Edition. The second installment from John Booth's spellbinder universe picks up right where we left Tom and Laura at the end of the first book, and immediately propels them into an even greater peril.
They are pronounced dead, kidnapped, held captive and sold into slavery - and that is just during the first few chapters. Their enemies are head and shoulders above the group of thugs they had to deal with before. While the young Class A spellbinder and her healer friend remain at the center of the narrative, their pals from the previous book and a host of new characters get nearly as much involvement. Join them on a mad chase across England and into Scotland, through fields, farms, houses and castles to disable a clever and resourceful villain.
The challenges these newly-minted spies have to face include, but are not limited to believing the impossible, double-crossing with reckless abandon and remembering that the voices they hear in their heads may or may not be real. Take the science- and imagination-powered train into this alternative universe. I, for one, have already bought the ticket and reserved my seat. Won't you join? See both reviews.
