The Unsuspecting Mage: The Morcyth Saga Book One

Book 1, The Morcyth Saga

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

“Want to be a mage? Then do we have the job for you…”

Sounds great for a veteran role-player. When on-the-job training entails battling demons, learning magic through trial and error, and living in a world without toilet paper, things could get rough. But to be dropped in the middle of a forest and having to do it on your own with no instruction…welcome to James’ world.

It all gets started when his grandfather suggests to James, a young man on the verge of graduating high school, that he check out the following advertisement for a job.
“Magic! Real Magic! Ever wanted to learn? We require someone with intelligence and a disciplined mind. Those well versed in fantasy novels and role playing games a plus. May need to travel.”

Sounded like the perfect job for a veteran role-player and avid fantasy reader. James had no idea he’d be whisked to another world, completely cut off from friends and family. Arriving in a meadow in the middle of a forest, he’s greeted by a creature not entirely human. He was then told three things:

Magic works here…
Don’t try to go home…
Get to the village of Trendle…

Then the creature vanished.

Which way was Trendle? Where was he? What might inhabit the forest that will seek his ruination? These were but a few of the questions needing to be unraveled.

Alone with only his wits and knowledge gleaned from hundreds of books and dungeon campaigns, he started out just trying to survive. He soon learned that one mistake, one lapse in judgment could mean his death.

Not long after arriving, he made the acquaintance of Miko, a street-wise kid who quickly became his friend and companion. Little did he know that the strength within this child from the streets of Bearn, a strength that would be tested again and again as they waded through battle after battle, delved in hidden passages deep beneath the earth, and faced off against an the might of an Empire, would be invaluable in the trials ahead.

The Unsuspecting Mage is the first book of The Morcyth Saga, a seven book epic fantasy adventure. It follows James as he seeks first to master the art of magic then to uncover the reason why he had been brought to this strange new world where armies are on the move and gods meddle in the affairs of men.

Great book

This story has a really interesting plot that keeps readers on their toes. While there are some grammatical issues, I think they can be overlooked enough to keep reading this story. The author has many good ideas and I look forward to reading the next story.

The Mycorth Sagas

These books are so fast moving and exciting I spent six bucks a book and still waiting on the second series. Enough said!

Yes!!!

This book and the series as a whole (The Morcyth Saga) is my all-time favorite book series. The books are fast-paced and you never know what's going to happen next! I fell in love with the characters (especially James) and by the end of the saga you'll love it too.

PS: apparently it's been updated to be fully written in past tense since that bothered so many people haha.
