A Darker Magic

A Darker Magic

A bloody war has ended in a restored peace
And the shield of Martian magic guards the stars
Two centuries of spell and steel to ward all humanity


Two years ago, Lieutenant Commander Roslyn Chambers stood witness to the surrender of the last remnants of the Republic. Fueled by atrocity against Mage and mundane alike, the secessionists who waged war against the Protectorate of Mars are finally defeated.

Now, a special commission from the Mage-Queen of Mars takes Roslyn deep into the former Republic to hunt the architects of that atrocity. Mages who betrayed their own, the creators of Project Prometheus must be brought to justice.

But hidden from even the Republic, Prometheus has woven magic and technology together once more. Here, hidden from all prying eyes, they have created a monster…one that even a Protectorate forged by the spell must call black magic.

    A Darker Magic Reviews

  • Drew

    Note: There are major spoilers in this review.I enjoyed this book as a quick read. My biggest gripe is that it doesn't feel like part of the main Starship's mage storyline. Damien Montgomery is only f...

    I posted in my review of Starship's Mage #9 that I felt slightly disappointed that we see so little of the titular "Starship's Mage". In this latest installment, we double down with our protagonist, R...

    Lazy book with zombies. So far out from what I expect of this series. It repeatedly seemed like the protagonist acted like she was alone, rather than having an entire ship full of allies in orbit, not...

  • Andrey

    A rather dull entry in the series. A few pawns get moved around or taken, presumably in preparation for future installments, but nothing much happens otherwise. First half is an investigation where th...

    This Could Be a MovieRight off the bat, SURPRISES! While this book doesn't focus on Damien Montgomery, he does make appearances, briefly. Roslyn Chambers, former juvenile delinquent, now mage lieutena...

    I have really enjoyed this series and this book maintains the high enjoyment level. On the negative side the author continues to tantalize and tease of a bigger subplot that never moves far forward. W...

    Another excellent book in the Starship's Mage series. Though I miss Damien I love how fully Roslyn (as the new MC) is being developed. I wish there was more space-oriented combat or just use of magic ...

    Interesting new viewI really love this series. I been been reading and listening for 4 years now and I recommend it to everyone I know who reads. This book was disappointing to me. If Rosalyn is going...
